When in Saskatoon, dine at one of our fine street vendor stands.

At the corner of 21st and 2nd Ave., you will find delicious jumbo dogs like this one. The best part: home made corn relish. This stuff takes me back to the farm in a magical way. Friggin delicious.

Is there such a vendor in the core of Regina?

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.

  1. There’s nothing original in the core of Regina. Or outer-core, for that matter. Originality is too cool for school, maaan…

  2. I’ll have to read that link. Regulation is tricky. On the one hand, it’s absolutely needed to make the food we consume safer. On the other hand, when regulation is brainless, it screws up, for example, the ability of farmer’s markets to sell, say, homemade pies. Then there’s issues like legalizing the sale of raw milk, which is a good topic to start a bar brawl with. And I remember once in the ’90s there was a brief push to ban unpasteurized cheeses, which basically would’ve made most cheeses illegal.

    Glad I’m not in charge of food safety. Seems like a tough job.
