Happy Valentines Day!

This year we'll be celebrating Valentine's Day at Swizzles on Sunday the 13th (the kissing starts at midnight) ;)

Well Christmas and New Years have come and gone. And January 31st marked our Annual "Dog Day Celebration". This year we partied up a storm at Swizzles.
301 years and counting. Apparently, an old dog can be taught new tricks (who knew?)

Spring is not too far now.
The LookOut even threw an impromtu beach party karaoke night in anticipation.

Pal News

Pal of The Month
Pierre Perrier
(a.k.a. petey)

Congratulations to Marcel & Marie-France on their 1st year anniversary.

Congratulations to our Miss Kitty. Moe is now the official treasurer for The Pride committee. A huge undertaking.

Everyone at O'BRIEN's knows the hard work Grant has put in as promotions manager. He brought a karaoke inspired murder mystery to Obeez New Years Eve. And he is the man behind all the fun offerings; poker, euchre, darts, pool and more! Now Grant has brought poker and euchre tournys to THE BRIG PUB as well.

Congratulations to Steve Muss whose hard work and determinism (as well as enormous talent) has landed his band Sandstorm numerous gigs these past few months as well a radio spot and a contract to play the Ottawa 67's hockey games. Steve is heading to Vermont this month to contribute to a concert for Tsunami Relief. [sandstorm website]

Thanks to Adam (Vic Viscount)for adding a new way cool disk of Peter Allen showtunes to library 42.

Yay! Scotty the cougar (on account of his sleak cougar-like body) has come out of hiding and is back to his nogoodnik ways.

Thanks Richie the Hound for volunteering his services on Dog's Birthday. We couldn't have done it without him.

Happy Birthday February Pals: Petey "Pete" Perrier on the 9th, Les on the 10th, Liam (Dingo) will be celebrating his 30th birthday at Swizzles on Friday the 11th, Andrew (the puppy) on the 13th, MikeM on the 18th, and Adam (Vic Viscount) will be celebrating on the 26th. phew!
