Yet more good news about a century-plus heritage building and a true entertainment icon: The Windsor Hotel.
After a January rumour went around that the Hotel was to close or be demolished, (one denied by the owner), the local music community rallied (literally) to raise awareness and hopes of a new buyer for the venue.
Last month Wayne Towns, former owner of The Royal Albert and now owner of The Winnipeg Hotel, purchased the Windsor. A re-opening concert is set for this weekend featuring Big Dave MacLean.
