The Black Donkey Café is the downtown eatery you can really use. When this restaurant has themes and promotions, it is almost never about the food on the menu or the hot beverages on the feature board. Their themes are about activities. Owner Chris Blackier recognized there were plenty of places to go and eat things. Few of them offered a place to also do things. Music, art, games and entertainment are on the Black Donkey menu, and they are usually free of charge.
The classic rock ‘n’ roll scene of Prince George has suffered contractions in the past 10 years or so. It’s harder for a group like Audio Union and the fans of crunchy guitars and clobbering drums to find each other, but when they got to open for Honeymoon Suite this summer, it was clear that people love their stuff. Before the headliners even took the stage, the sold-out crowd was electrified and called Audio Union back for an encore - nearly unheard of for an opening act.
