An expanse of 550-million-year-old rock surrounds the geological exhibits at The Johnson GEO CENTRE, a 33,600-square-foot facility that resides mostly in stone’s favourite hangout: underground. There, the Steele Earth & Space Theatre screens high-definition science-minded films in 2-D and 3-D, and the Geo Theatre projects the four-billion-year history of the earth onto a rock wall featuring a cave, running stream, and glowing lava. Exhibitions include scientific oddities such as a cutaway of the earth and 565-million-year-old fossils preserved in layers of volcanic ash. The museum also highlights the educational opportunities found in more recent events: real-life artifacts and interactive kiosks tell the Titanic's tragic story, and the ExxonMobil Oil and Gas Gallery explores energy with scale models of an oil tanker and offshore supply vessel.

At the KidsPlace, youngsters aged 1–7 can put on science-inspired plays on the puppet-theatre stage or study trilobites and eight-track tapes in the fossil corner. The gift shop also outfits kids with educational books and games, and adults can stock up on agate wind chimes and sterling-silver jewellery. In between bites of GEO sandwiches in the GEO café, members can peruse schedules of numerous monthly events or plan enrollment in summer camps aimed at junior scientists.

The oldest bar on George Street, Christian’s Bar couples its premium drafts, high-quality spirits, and expertly mixed cocktails with Screech-Ins, a nightly ritual of fish kissing. In order to become honorary Newfoundlanders, visitors, tourists, and lovesick aquarium owners are asked to down a shot of local Screech rum before puckering up to a cod or renting a free room for a private party upstairs. Starting at 4 p.m., regular patrons watch NHL Center Ice on a 70" Sharp Aquos LCD HDTV or play Golden Tee Golf while sipping libations such as fine whiskeys, ryes, tequilas, and other spirits, including indulgent ounces of luxury Louis XIII cognac. Imbibers can also gulp down premium wine and Dom Perignon or transform into a caffeinated tornado after chugging a specialty coffee.

Additionally, the shops carry a multitude of wines as well as beer brewed locally and around the world.

Acclaimed tenor Ben Heppner is one of the world's foremost tenors, displaying an impressive dramatic depth and a virtual treasure trove of trophies, holding a Grammy and a Juno award. Deep into a trans-Atlantic tour that includes stops at such estimable opera houses as London's Royal Opera House and Toulouse's Théatre du Capitole, Heppner will appear like a ghost to a melancholy Danish prince in St. John's, regaling opera aficionados in an intimate solo performance of selections from his repertoire, which may include excerpts from such challenging works as Verdi's Otello and Wagner's The Ring of the Nibelung, a musical adaptation of Tolkien's The Two Towers.
