Bottle Drive aviary : It’s a ghost town of entertainment right now as Omicron raged through the local music scene (and, of course, the planet, which set world records on Friday). “We had a bunch of cancellations, including our NYE party,” notes Aviary co-owner Phil Muz, “which has put us in a tough spot right now.” This is why, once again, the Muz Brothers are collecting bottles. “We will also be distributing the money to our community,” he notes, just message them at @ aviary.edmonton on Instagram if you need a helping hand as they have donated more of $ 1,000 to people who contacted the last time. They will pick up the bottles from January 10 to 14, but will also accept them on site on Saturday.
