Here's to vino with the violins
Suds with the symphony might sound like a good idea, but it would be embarrassing if things got out of hand — just ask the Kamloops Multicultural Society.
The Western Canada Theatre is seeking a liquor licence, but if they get one, the police could be keeping a close eye on them. After all, the Canada Day beer garden — run by the society — got shut down when the liquor flowed a little too freely.
On the other hand, the Kamloops Convention Centre already allows a glass of wine with concerts. I attended one and saw a lot of happy people but no rowdies.
It’s hard to believe a bit of tippling with the timpani solo will cause any trouble. But some of the ruffians who show up to see the Arrogant Worms might by need watching.
