November 10 | Jets vs. Golden Knights Viewing Party | 9 p.m.

You could watch the Jets’ first-ever game in Vegas at home, or you could watch it on the big screen at Bell MTS Place. Puck drop is 9:30 p.m. with doors opening at 6 p.m. While the event is free, you’ll need tickets to get in. Go Jets Go!

November 10-12 | Music of the Mad Men Era

Back by popular demand, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra presents music from the artists that defined the 50s and 60s: Bobby Darin, Peggy Lee, Wayne Newton, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and more. From Mack the Knife and Fever to TV themes and commercials, you’ll hear it all. For tickets and more information visit the WSO online.

November 12 | Bombers vs. Eskimos | 3:30 p.m.

For the first time since 2011, our Winnipeg Blue Bombers are hosting a CFL playoff game – and despite a forecast of -6, attendance is already 27,000 strong. With the winner facing Calgary in the Western Final, starting quarterback Matt Nichols is back from injury just in time. Hopefully his brand new baby will bring the team luck.
