Choose from either an 8 oz. or a 10 oz. cut. Prime rib is definitely one of Bushwakker executive chef Mike’s specialties. The Bushwakker LOCAL ARTIST WALL for the month of January features a special collection from Regina’s Birthing Artists Academy. The academy is owned and operated by Amy Dawn S. Amy’s vision is to create a world where human beings can realize their greatness through their creative potential. Birthing Artists is about inspiring potential mastery while focusing on collaboration. She works with other artists and entrepreneurs and anyone looking for a deeper connection with their life. As an artist she is gifted at teaching other artists and entrepreneurs how to let go and create from an innate intelligence and energy that she believes is the source of who we all are. Amy’s medium for working with others is painting although she integrates her 10 years of knowledge and wisdom in personal growth and self-development. You can apply to work with Amy through Birthing Artists Academy. The featured artists and entrepreneurs are: Cristian Barreno - http://www.cristianbarreno.com, Charlotte Hauk - http://www.charlottehaukart.com, Laura Stark & Christine Mazenc. A final piece will be added to the wall very shortly. On Wednesday, January 10th a large canvas was set up by the stage for the evening’s Wednesday Night Folk night performance. A painting was created by a small group of students and artists from the Birthing Artists Academy who were collaborating a live painting while being inspired by local folk duo, The Empire Associates, and the life of Bev Robertson. The finished piece was made available for silent auction that night and 100% of the proceeds were generously given to the Allan Blair Cancer Center in Regina. This month’s Local Artist Wall features the Birthing Artists Academy. The wall will see the addition of a new collaborative painting which was created during the January 10th Wednesday Night Folk performance.
BUSHWAKKER EVENTSJan. 15: Monday Night Jazz & Blues. A STORRY WITH HUGHES. Talented rockin’ acoustic blues duo featuring Jeff Storry and Billy Hughes. 8:00 PM. Jan. 17: Wednesday Night Folk.

This month's lecture will be presented by Dr. Martin Beech, Adjunct Professor, Campion College, University of Regina. Proxima Centauri is the next nearest star after the Sun, and yet it is invisible to the unaided eye. A low mass, low luminosity red dwarf star Proxima is known to be orbited by at least one Earth-mass planet and it is to be the target-star for the first interstellar space mission sponsored by the Breakthrough Starshot initiative. Proxima may be astronomically close, but it continues to deify both astronomical theory and expectation, showing many odd behaviours that astronomers are still trying to understand - there is, indeed, more going on with Proxima Centauri than meets the human eye.

TIME OUTA young lady stops by her grandmother's house on the way to a dance. She wants to introduce her boyfriend to her grandmother. As they are chatting, her boyfriend spies some peanuts on the coffee table. He begins munching on them as they converse. After about an hour, they are getting ready to leave and he thanks the grandmother for her hospitality and especially for the peanuts. "Oh, you’re welcome young man," she says. "I appreciate you finishing them up. Ever since I lost my dentures I can only suck the chocolate off of them."
