Saskatoon completely surprised us. We spent the first weekend of our summer exploring this incredibly diverse city, which totally surpassed all expectations. We’ll admit, we were a bit blind to what Saskatchewan has to offer as we’ve never been, but growing up in Alberta- figured it was similar, tons of prairies and farmland. We were completely wrong.

I darkened the doorway there quite a bit, from taking guitar lessons at MTM School of Music upstairs to doing in store appearances with my band in the 90s. The Vinyl Diner occupies part of the upstairs space still, so it’s nice that music still floats around that building on Broadway.
