Open Mic Coffee House

The next Open Mic Coffee House takes place on Dec. 7 at the Lakeside Multiplex. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the music goes from 7 to around 9 p.m. Enjoy the performances of local entertainers, as well as refreshments at intermission by donation. The shows keep getting better each month, with youth performers, ‘first-timers’ and established Lakes District performers. Come early to get a good seat … shows are very well-attended! Admission is $5 for non-performers (children 12 and under are admitted for $3), and performers are admitted free. Proceeds support the Burns Lake and area Scouts. For more information or to register to perform, call Jim Loeb at 250-692-9874. You can find out more about the Burns Lake Open Mic Coffee House at this link:
