Once again, McNally Robinson Booksellers Grant Park will be joining in and celebrating International Tabletop Day. On April 5th, our Community Classroom will be open from 1 pm to 10 pm for a day of gaming!
Whether you play board games all the time and are looking for a free table to use, or you are a novice wondering what the excitement is about, come by for free fun! Bring your favourite game, or try one of ours. Our current featured game Coal Baron will be among those on display to learn and play.
This event is entirely free and runs on a "drop-in" basis, so there's no registration. Just come for as long or short a time as you want and have some fun with other local gamers! We're aiming for a casual and relaxing event -- the focus is entirely on having fun!
We hope to see you here.
Please note that this event is only at our Winnipeg (Grant Park) location.Categories: buzz, Fun, Store News, Winnipeg, Games

In partnership with Winnipeg's Classic 107, we're proud to present our Classical CD of the Week...
The Benedictines of Mary's Lent at Ephesus
The nuns of the Priory of Our Lady of Ephesus -- the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles -- based in Missouri, sing the divine office eight times a day. It was only natural that they should record some of their work for close friends and benefactors, which they have done a few times since 2008. In 2012, a recording for the wider public was made, entitled Advent at Ephesus. It contains a mixture of Gregorian chants and hymns used during the season immediately preceding Christmas, as well as a few carols in English. The blending of the female voices gives a different, yet just as pleasing, perspective to this music, which is more often heard performed by male voices.
Look for our Classical CD of the Week display in the Music section of our Grant Park store to pick up a copy!Categories: Music, Winnipeg, Classic107
