In Pictures: Revelstoke Spirit Festival — Day Seven
By David F. Rooney
Tenorissimo and the Top Bloke Contest’s Ladies Night event were the top activities on Thursday, drawing the attention of two opposing groups of people — those with a taste for high culture and those whose tastes were somewhat lower on the sophistication scale.
Tenorissimo’s Paul Ouellette, Ken Lavigne and Phillip Grant pulled in a large audience at the United Church for an evening of operatic music delivered with a keen sense of humour.
Across town at the Big Eddy Pub scores of women snaffled back wine, beer and mixed drinks as they howled at the men competing to become Revelstoke’s first Top Bloke. The contest, organized by The Last Drop, ends Friday evening with a buffet and drinks at the Last Drop (click here to learn more) and Thursday evening’s hilarity certainly showed that this particular contest has some staying power. We at The Current would love to see this brought back next winter.
If you missed those two events you can enjoy them vicariously through the following photos and videos:
