Hear the dog whisperer

Cesar Millan, the famous dog trainer, is at the MTS Centre today. If you're a dog lover or just a major fan of the Dog Whisperer, you can't miss this.

Go to for tickets, which run from $35-$138.75.

Do the Mambo

If you're feeling a little dull from the snow and need to be pepped up, a little Latin music can go a long way. Check out Michael Philip Mossman, renowned trumpeter, as he presents his Latin jazz arrangement of Mambo Nights. There are two performances today at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. Local high school bands will open each show, with the Fort Richmond Collegiate Senior Jazz Band in the afternoon and the Collège Pierre Elliott Trudeau Senior Jazz Band at the evening performance.
