FEBRUARY BUSHWAKKER EVENTS

Another event-loaded month at The Bushwakker! Highlights including: Saskatchewan Archives Night, our Classic Valentine’s Dinner, a controversial edition of Health Science Pub and some 2019 Mid-Winter Blues Festival performances too!


Feb. 1: FIRST FIRKIN FRIDAY. A decades-old Bushwakker tradition! A piper from the Regina Police Services Pipes and Drums leads a keg of special brew in a procession throughout the brewpub. A guest volunteer is selected to wield the handmade wooden maul affectionately referred to as The Mighty Firkin Wakker, and attempt to tap the firkin in one mighty blow. Our February Valentine’s month firkin offering will be a Chocolate Raspberry Milk Stout. The delicious suds-soaking experience takes place at 5:30 PM.

Feb. 4: Monday Night Jazz & Blues. THE MINISTRY OF GROOVE. 1970’S jazz funk and more. Love that horn section! 8:00 PM.

Feb. 6: MONTHLY ALES MEETING. If you are looking to improve your skills as a homebrewer or just want to sit in a room filled with people who have a passion for creating great beer in the basement, then the ALES Club is for you! This month’s discussion topic will be European Lagers. Meetings are held in the Bushwakker basement clubroom on the first Wednesday of each month at 8:00 PM. New members are always welcome.

Feb. 6: SASK ARCHIVES NIGHT - ‘New to Town: Newcomer Reflections Then & Now.’ Presented by the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan as part of Archives Week 2019.

CJME’s Sarah Mills will be event MC. Presenters include: Frank Korvemaker, Livia Castellanos and Faycal Haggul. Archives Week showcases the role that archives and archivists play in preserving and making available Saskatchewan's documented heritage. 7:00 PM.

Feb. 6: Wednesday Night Folk. BRADFORD. Talented acoustic duo featuring Brad Papp and Mark Radford. Please note that due to the Sask Archives event, the show will start at 9:00 PM rather than 8:00 PM.

Feb. 11: Monday Night Jazz & Blues. THE JAZZ BAND-ITS. The largest band to ever grace the Bushwakker stage plays big band, jazz and swing – loud and proud! 8:00 PM.

Feb. 13: Wednesday Night Folk. THE STRANGE VALENTINES. A special pre-Valentine’s Day show featuring an Australian and a Nova Scotian who sing about the jerks in the world. Strange love indeed! 8:00 PM.

Feb. 14: BUSHWAKKER VALENTINE’S SWEETHEART DINNER. Fancy-schmancy restaurants may be the choice destination for some young lovers. Others who prefer great value and delicious food in a comforting and cozy setting often prefer to enjoy their Valentine’s experience with us. Bushwakker executive chef, Mike Monette, will offer a Classic Valentine Dinner Feature which is sure to impress. This year we will offer BEEF WELLINGTON with an optional CRÈME BRULEE dessert feature. Reservations accepted!

Feb. 18: FAMILY DAY. Open from noon to nine.

Enjoy lectures on scientific topics of general interest in our Arizona Room (main floor banquet room) over beer and snacks. The room opens at 5:00 PM and quite often is full by 6:00 PM. Avoid disappointment and come down early for dinner and a pint before the presentation which begins at 7:00 PM. This month’s lecture will be presented by Dr. Ron Taylor from the Saskatchewan  Health Authority and  Ms. Alison Hamilton who is a Patient and Family Advisor. Questions which may be addressed include: what is normal hospital care, what is an ACU and why should anyone care, what did the Pasqua do, what does this mean to patients/families and where might this all go?

Feb. 25: Monday Night Jazz & Blues - special Mid-Winter Blues Festival edition. TERRAPLANE. Talented blues band lead by Regina’s friendliest bluesman returns for a long overdue performance. 8:00 PM.

Feb. 27: Wednesday Night Folk – special Mid-Winter Blues Festival edition. A STORRY WITH HUGHES. Talented rockin’ acoustic blues duo featuring Jeff Storry and Billy Hughes. 8:00 PM.
