*Sorry for the lateness, but this is a Top Thursday as it’s for the Forks birthday*


The Forks will be turning 20 Years Old tomorrow (September 5) and they will be doing it in style with a FREE Birthday Bash at The Forks! Hit the ‘read more’ link to find out what to do there this weekend!


On top of the Fork’s 20th birthday celebration, there’s also karaoke, a talented mix of buskers, the WSO and a lot of other entertainers to keep you busy. On top of everything else…FIREWORKS AT 10:30!!! YES!!!


OK, this may not be for the guys (at least not all of them) but the Forks is one of the greatest places in the city to go shopping. There are so many eclectic shops here that it’s so hard to choose. Custom made jewelery anyone?


Wow. OK, so we’ve got Sidney’s at the Forks. This is one of the nicest restaurants in Winnipeg and is only one of the reasons to head down to the Forks this weekend. I usually go for the roti at Bindy’s but to each their own.


Children’s Museum. This isn’t just for kids anymore (or was it ever?). I really like just going in and walking around. I don’t usually expect to learn something but there’s so much going on that it’s really hard not to. Gents, bring one of you younger siblings, or niece/nephew and have a good time..besides, you might me that special lady doing the same with her niece/nephew.


But do you really need to drink to have fun? No, but if you ever do a toast with a glass of apple juice it’s just not the same. Make sure you head down to the Muddy Waters Patio or Finn McCue’s for some Guinness draft.
