Pinkie Fingers Out
What child didn't want to have a tea party?
Now it's time to have a little high class, old school celebration with the kid and the kid at heart.
The Hotel Saskatchewan is swinging open its doors this weekend for a tea party.
It's all happening appropriately enough in the Victorian Tea Room. Menu items include cucumber sandwiches, smoked salmon, freshly baked scones and a selection of dainties.
It's a chance to get dolled up and do something special.
High tea is between 2:30pm and 4pm on Saturday.
They've been at it for more than 40 years.
Bruce Williams and Terry Ree have been known in some circles as the "Indian and the White Guy" and that's O.K. by them.
The pair has played casinos and clubs all over North America and this weekend they are in the Queen City.
These guys are no shrinking violets. Their comedic antics have opened for acts like Garth Brooks, The Oak Ridge Boys and Tim McGraw.
You can see Williams and Ree on stage at Casino Regina Friday night.
It's stripped down, raw and beautiful. That's how I would describe the sounds that come out of Kacy Anderson and Clayton Linthicum.
These cousins from Wood Mountain have a brand new album that they are ready to share with the world and they are doing just that this weekend.
The Day Is Past and Gone has some pretty big backing. It was produced by Ryan Boldt of the Deep Dark Woods.
This is pretty fine folk music and you have a pair of chances to hear it.
Friday Kacy and Clayton play the Bassment in Saskatoon.
Then on Saturday the duo move to Regina for a show at The Club.

Diggin the Scene
What happens when some longtime musicians come together to celebrate roots and blues music?
The answer to that is a chance to groove and move along with them.
Saskatoon Bluesman B.C. Read will be joined on stage by artists like George Tennant, Laurie Currie and Sheldon Corbett.
They'll be honkin' out the blues and you should too at that show Friday night at Amigos.
Come on up to sample all that Saskatoon's entertainment scene has to offer.
LUGO is quickly becoming the premiere event in the bridge city.
Spoken word, music, theatre and visual art are all at this party.
The best part, you can wander the Mendel Art Gallery and experience it all with a glass of wine comfortably in hand.
Pre-sale tickets for this event are already sold out but organizers are releasing more at the door.
Come early if you want to get in. LUGO is Saturday night at the Mendel Art Gallery.
Wang Chung Tonight
Don your leggings, and dig out your florescent scrunchies, it's time to party like it's 1985!
The band Stuck in the 80's is a party act that delivers on entertainment.
These guys got together from various bands around the city.
They fancy themselves true musicians and promise songs by artists like Hall & Oates and Jefferson Starship will sound just like you remember them.
Costumes are welcome at this show.
Stuck in the 80's plays Friday night at Bud's on Broadway.
If you have an event you would like included in Brit's Picks, send it her way.
