Hey, you’ve gotta eat right?
Well, over at my day job as editor of the Carillon, the staff and I have put together a steak night tonight at the campus pub, the Owl, featuring prairie dog‘s own fearless leader, Stephen Whitworth, throwing down on the mic at about 7 p.m.
You can buy tickets at the door and everything, and they’re only $20, which ain’t bad for a steak dinner. So come on down! Help out your local university’s newspaper, before we all turn into the coal-hearted back-in-my-day hacks that staff the prairie dog (just kidding, boss!!!!!!!).
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
