Our arts reporter Britainy Robinson picks her top three spots for entertainment

Regina & Area

Playtime for Science

It's your chance to pack up the kids and have them fly around the science centre. 

Starting at 2 p.m. CST, it's all about making learning fun for children. This weekend butterflies are up for discussion as the kids will be able to see the animals and then make their own.

And once you're done why not head over to the rock climbing wall to scale it one last time. It's coming down to make way for new exhibits. The Science Centre is holding a farewell climb on the 18 metre wall.

That's both Saturday and Sunday at the Science Centre.

Beer Lovers Unite

Do you love beer? Is it deserving of a moment of reverence? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you're going to want to stop by Bushwakker Friday night.  
One lucky volunteer will be named the "Firkin Wakker" this Friday. (Bushwakker)

It's all about celebrating First Firkin Friday.

A firkin is a small keg of fresh ale that will be paraded around the pub lead by a piper. A volunteer is then chosen from the crowd to drive the tap into the firkin. This person is known affectionately as the "FirkinWakker".

If you'd like to tap the keg or be soaked by the squirting beer, you can check it out Friday night.

Winter Escape

OK, so if you don't have the cash for a destination holiday, it turns out you can get a hint of the beaches right here at home. The Regina Floral Conservatory is inviting us all to come see their Tropical Getaway.

Come sun yourself under the friendly palms, admire the azaleas and hibiscus, this is the cure for the Winter blues. The Conservatory is open in the afternoons from 1-4:30 p.m. CST

Saskatoon & Area

Staging a Staple

It's a story about hard choices and a family almost unwilling to make them.

The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov is being staged this weekend by Theatre Naught. Its the same team that brought the very successful production of King Lear to the Live Five Theatre stage.

This is a huge cast for this stage, featuring some Saskatoon stars. Kent Allen, Sharon Bakker and Rob van Meenen will join relative newbies like Caitlin Vancoughnett and Jacob Yaworski.

The play runs this weekend and next weekend at the Refinery.

Music Mayhem

They promise to behave and really only steal your heart. At least that's the pledge on the Little Criminals website. This folk duo from Saskatoon is headlining on the stage at Amigos this weekend.

They will be joined by other local acts including Two Day Bloom, Britney Boom & Myles & The Blanks.

The music begins Saturday at Amigos Cantina.

Line Up for Line Dancing

Do you love a good two step but you're a bit afraid to head out on the floor? Cast your worries aside, the Classic Dance Club is here to help.

Once a month the club holds a dance at the Royal Canadian Legion. You don't need a partner which makes this the perfect place to meet and mingle.Show up by 7:45pm for the lesson and then stay to dance until midnight. 

January's dance is dedicated to the nightclub two step and other dances from the country.
