As a provincial crown corporation, the Newfoundland Labrador Liquor Corporation oversees the handling and distribution of alcoholic beverages throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Spanning 24 retail stores and more than 100 agency locations, the NLC provides these cities and outlying communities with beverages that help make parties rowdier, holidays more festive, and soccer games actually interesting. Unlike many other provincial liquor services, the NLC blends and bottles its own spirits, and is responsible for dispersing more than 125,000 cases of liquor. Additionally, the shops carry a multitude of wines as well as beer brewed locally and around the world.
Frontline Action's indoor and outdoor fields, or battle zones, set the stage for high-adrenaline games of paintball, laser tag, and more. To ensure fair play, professionally trained referees oversee all simulated combat and tactical scenarios. Airsmiths and marker technicians also work at a large, on-site proshop.
Penned by local playwright Ben Pittman, The Fights weaves a story inspired by Newfoundland-born Bare-knuckle Prizefighter Johnny Dwyer and his knuckle-clad travails in 1870s New York City. As a parade of corrupt politicians and crooked saloon proprietors clouds the landscape of his fighter dreams, “Gentleman” Johnny’s will is tested, along with his fists and trigonometry prowess. Call ahead for reservations.
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.
