Five Ways to Exchange

So much happening in the Exchange District this weekend! Here’s a few…..

CONCERT MOVIES AT THE CUBE

On August 3, we’ll be screening the classic Talking Heads concert movie Stop Making Sense. With a special performance by Winnipeg’s own Yes We Mystic, DJ sets by Co-op and Hunnicutt and beer service from the Exchange District’s own Little Brown Jug, it’s an experience you won’t want to miss!
