The Juno Awards are just days away and Regina is buzzing as stars prepare to descend into the city. With the Saskatchewan capital not being the most well-known of Canada's destinations, we thought we would offer some advice to the nominees who may be wondering what to do in town.
Vacay.ca is offering 10 of this year's Juno Awards nominees recommendations for locations and activities we feel they will enjoy in Regina:
Justin Bieber -- RCMP Heritage Centre
The kid's 19, the age of many of the recruits at the primary training academy for Canada's chief law-enforcement agency. We think a stop the the Heritage Centre would do wonders for sales of RCMP gear and perhaps give Bieber inspiration for some new dance moves when he sees the rigorous steps the cadets go through each day. Bieber is nominated for four Junos this year: Fan Choice Award, Album of the Year and Pop Album of the Year (Believe), and Artist of the Year.
Leonard Cohen -- Hotel Saskatchewan
Nothing but the finest for the iconic poet, up for three Junos, including the Fan Choice Award, Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. The opulent Hotel Saskatchewan will charm Cohen and it could even wind up in a song one day.
The Sheepdogs -- The Bushwakker Brewpub
For one thing, the Group of the Year nominees might hear their songs playing at Canada's No. 1 brewpub, which is dedicated to playing only music from Saskatchewan artists. For another thing, they just might be inspired to put on an impromptu performance of "The Way It Is" or another hit. We can dream, can't we? "The Way It Is" is nominated for Single of the Year and the band's self-titled recording is up for Rock Album of the Year.
The Weeknd -- Table 10
The Toronto-based hip-hop star was a frequent visitor to the Goodnight! Bar before it shut down for condo development late last year. He likes his cocktails and Table 10 serves up some fine ones, including a curious take on the mojito with raspberry rum and Chambord liqueur. The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye, is up for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and R&B/Soul Recording of the Year (Trilogy).
