METALLICA AND FRINGE FESTIVAL!
JOIN ME AT O2'S ON WHYTE … Today through next Sunday, August 26th (Fringe Festival), I'll be broadcasting from O2's Taphouse & Grill on 104th street, just north of Whyte ave. Drop by, say hello, and enter to win a $25 Gift Card for O2's - we're giving away one each day. Our street team will be here giving away a ton of prizes on the rooftop patio every day too - it's the best rooftop in the Whyte ave district! Visit www.O2TaphouseAndGrill.com
METALLICA ROUND TWO ... I'm so jealous that I didn't get tickets to METALLICA this weekend! By all accounts, last night's show at Rexall was over-the-top ridiculous, and anyone who was there is still picking up the pieces today. Raspy voices, ringing ears, and great stories. If you're lucky enough to be going to the second show tonight, check out The Bear's "Hearse From Hell" on your way in, and enter to win tickets to the Red Hot Chili Peppers in November!

HOW HAZARDOUS IS YOUR JOB ... All of us here at The Bear are extremely lucky to be doing what we do (or don't) for a living. We play music, press a button or two once in a while, laugh our asses off, and enjoy life in a very safe environment. Check out this dude's job, and the possible consequences: www.LFPress.com/news/world/2012/08/17/20113196.html
