    It was better than mowing my lawn, but not by much.

    I have been in Edmonton now for a couple of weeks, I'm looking forward to meeting new people and enjoying my first theatre experience here.

      Welcome Fiona to E-Town and our merry band 'o TheatreGoers! This event isn't live theatre...but, will be interesting and fun. Since you're new to the city too, we'll defer the initiation ritual to your 3rd event ;-)

    This sounds pretty damn weird. ICurious to watch the type of person who would spend most of their Saturday watching something like this, let alone singing about it. Naturally, I'm in. I'm not sure if I have the attention span to last all three legs.

    The plan is to get a snack/beverage at Rosso Pizzeria, Transcend or Remedy Cafes (all in the neighbourhood) in between Legs 1 and 2 of this triathlon of fun @ the Metro!
