Booze Brother coming to town
I mentioned in a recent column that Dan Aykroyd is coming to Manitoba, and I've now got some of the details regarding where he'll be and when. Catch Elwood Blues (I prefer to think of him as Dr. Ray Stantz from Ghostbusters) at the Grant Park Liquor Mart on Saturday, September 11 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Brandonites can see Mr. Aykroyd the next day at the Liquor Mart at 10th and Victoria from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m..
I've got some feelers out as to whether he'll be hitting any Winnipeg blues bars/other venues while he's in town, but so far no word on whether there'll be any evening appearances by Mr. Aykroyd, harmonica in hand...
I'll have more later in the week, including where to buy wine and beer over the Labour Day weekend...

About Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson
When he wasn't bashing on a drum kit in local punk rock bands, Ben spent the mid '90s hucking cases of wine around to pay for two English degrees. Now he's the Winnipeg Free Press wine columnist and blogger.
The extent of Ben's wine experience in the mid-90s was memories of accidentally leaving a bottle of White Zinfandel in the freezer overnight, and the ensuing mess he was left with. Between 1996 and 2005 Ben absorbed all he could about wine while working at wine shops to pay for school. Meanwhile, he was churning out papers for his BA and MA in English (from the Universities of Winnipeg and Manitoba, respectively).
Ben became the Winnipeg Free Press' weekly wine columnist in 2005, and two years later joined Wine Access magazine as a contributor, a member of their national tasting panel and a judge at the Canadian Wine Awards and International Value Wine Awards until the magazine closed up shop in 2013.
In 2013 Ben joined the Winnipeg Free Press as a copy/web editor.
