This Weekend in Barrie
The Weekender is brought to you in partnership with The Queens Hometown Bar & Grill: The home of live music in Barrie and your destination for great food and great times!
Halloweekend is just around the corner, and if you are on a quest to gear up for the spookiest evening of the year, we’ve got a trio of happenings to check out.
This Weekend in Barrie
Open Mic Night @ Fionn MacCool’s
Open Mic nights are making a comeback all over town. Places like Wickie’s, the British Arms and now Fionn MacCool’s are opening their doors (and microphones) to local artists looking to get on stage.
It’s been such a long haul for the performing arts scene. Just having the chance for burgeoning performers to get in front of a crowd again is worth supporting, so round up a crew and applaud the talent this Friday at Fionn’s. It all kicks off at 7:30.
Halloween Bingo at the Barrie Curling Club
The Barrie curling club will transform into a bingo hall on Saturday.
It’s a Halloween mash up event. And although costumes are optional, prizes will be handed out for the top 3 get ups.
In fact, the club has been open for a while. The sheets are available to book for a bonspiel with your rock thrower mates. Additionally, the club offers a full on restaurant.
Doors open at 6 with the Bingo balls jumping at 7.
Hit The MacLaren
The MacLaren art centre is actually hosting a bunch of cool stuff this weekend. On Friday, they’ll be leading a P.A. Day art camp for the kiddos who are enjoying a day unshackled from the confines of the classroom.
Students kick off the day with a visit to the Barrie Public Library to explore reading and listening to a story about art. In the afternoon it’s back to the gallery to use contemporary art techniques to create work inspired by the story, using painting and drawing.
Plus, patrons can take a walk with a tea around the gallery to celebrate their 20th anniversary. The guided tour will include a look back on the early days of the MacLaren.
