Pick of the Day: Steak Night

Not to promote the consumption of meat, or a particular business in town to the exclusion of the many other fine businesses that exist here, but tonight at Bushwakker there’s a steak night with proceeds going to the Regina Plains Museum.

The museum, for those who don’t know, is located at 1835 Scarth. It’s programming, along with its collection of artifacts (the vast majority of which are stored off-site) is geared to commemorating the settlement history of Regina. But its mandate isn’t tied exclusively to pioneer times. It has information and artifacts on more recent Regina history too.

From time to time, proposals have been floated to relocate the museum to a new location that would allow for more expansive exhibitions outlining important facets of Regina’s history. I don’t think anything concrete has been settled on though. Tonight’s event runs from 5-8 p.m. at Bushwakker. Tickets are $30. For more info call 780-9435. And here’s a link to the RPM’s website: http://www.reginaplainsmuseum.com

  1. Sometimes I have dreams about living in spooky Romanesque Regina in the 20s 30s 40s and 50s and frequenting, possibly working at, the old city hall (1909-1965 or so) (pictured, now site of the Alvin Hamilton Building). Sigh, that’s why I miss the Novia Cafe so much. That link is dead. Server not found #New Saskatchewan, baby

  2. I remember the demos of the two movie theatres in downtown Regina in ’87 & ’92, and how they changed the feel, perception, and atmosphere of downtown (for the worse, obviously).

    This is what will change once the new Safeway goes up in Cathedral.

    I’ve also seen several smaller demos in DT over 20 years and never are they good. This would have been a summer that I would have spent many days at the Novia, but it closed in June.

    Now, anyone got footage of the McCallum Hill Building demo from ’82?

  3. Fn Hank Baker,another visionless politician.
    He was as hick as Dief.
    He left us that prefab rectangle as a improvement? L 7 regardless of his accolades.

    I don’t remember the old hall I was in Calgary at the time the original got razed.

    Thanks for the photos David.

    You got 1 of you when you ran for Mayor?
