Happy Sunday, Edmonton! We hope that you enjoyed your weekend and at least got up to some fun stuff while staying safe. Hopefully our list of things to do helped you out, because we’re back with more suggestions! We’re devoted to this stuff.

Here are 8 things to do this week in Edmonton.

Learn to play the guitar

Or the ukulele, or the bass… Because Fender is offering 3 months free for their super popular teaching program Fender Play. If you’re trying to learn a new skill in your downtime, check this out for sure.

Or, teach yourself a magic trick

You could use this time to expand your skillset. Entertain whoever you’re stuck in quarantine with a magic trick or two. Tons of tutorials are available on YouTube. While you’re at it, see if you can find a trick for making COVID-19 disappear…

Listen to some live music

Without a doubt, one of the best random upsides of COVID-19 are all the artists doing free, live concerts via social media. We’d try to round them up, but we think that Billboard pretty much has it down pat. Or, just check in with your favourite band!

Go to the Circus

Watch some Wildlife

But safely, using the National Parks Services wildlife webcams. Bears, eagles and aquatic animals are currently being featured, and it’s a great way to spend an hour. Very calming vibes.

And then explore Google Maps

Except, explore the weirdest screen caps that have ever been found on there. You’d think that sending people around the earth with cameras strapped to their heads would produce some silly results. And, you’re absolutely right. Click the link above to see the best of the best (slightly NSFW)

Start a new series

April begins this week, and you know what that means. That’s right, there’s going to be a massive influx of new content coming to Netflix. Check out the full list and make your plans accordingly, folks.

Go Shopping

Each week, we’re realizing how important this is, so it’s sticking around. A lot of independent businesses are going to be under pretty intense financial stress for a while. So if you’ve got some spending money, support them. Order takeout/delivery, buy that shirt off Etsy, get a book delivered from a local store… whatever it is, your extra buck or two is more important than ever.

And that’s our list of the best things to do in Edmonton this week. We’re going to teach ourselves some magic tricks we think, then hustle people at the bar when this is all over.

Have a great one, folks!
