Shakin' your money maker at campus bars

In case you are one of those people who never plan on leaving the Western bubble, your on-campus entertainment venues have tonnes of activities planned for you.

The Wave has Monday Night Football, including big screens, great food and tonnes of prizes. It's the best (and closest) place to catch the game in town.

On Wednesdays, The Wave teams up with Western Film to present Dinner and a Movie – a great deal for only $9.99. This gets you a movie and up to $8.00 discount off any food purchase at The Wave.

DJ Navin will be playing all the R&B, Hip Hop and Top 40 hits on Thursday nights – a great dance night.

Throw Back Fridays with Testa Skillz is an all request night with Top 40 and retro. Saturday is Pub Night, when your residence or faculty can head down to The Wave to check out DJ Science & DJ Zoltan spinning some bitchin' tunes.

The Spoke is just steps away from The Wave and offers a whole different atmosphere, without a cover charge. Retro Mondays have always been a favourite for frosh looking for great dancing, while Slapstick Tuesdays is a sit-down comedy night.

Rick McGhie comes on Wednesday nights to entertain Western by singing the classics and on Sunday nights, "Rick-aoke" is an open mic night with the popular troubador.

Thursdays feature a different live band every week and Friday is Red Eye, with alternative music.

Last but not least is Celebration Saturdays. It differs every week, but circle Sept. 22 on your calendars – it's the Halfway to St. Patty's Day party. And don't forget, your Wet/Dry card works at both The Spoke and The Wave, so you can enjoy the entertainment they offer no matter what your age.

If you're in the mood for a more mellow night, be sure to check out Western Film, our own second run movie theatre. You can catch a flick for only $4.25 per person most days and only $2.50 on Tuesdays. The theatre often has special Midnight Madness movies, like The Matrix and Bladerunner and weekend marathons, such as the Indiana Jones series.

Simply put, with so much entertainment on campus, you'll never want to leave.
