                                           Q: Will they ever show Anthony Bourdain’s food travel
                                         shows again on cable? I didn’t get to see many of them when
                                         he was alive. — S.Q.

                                           A: If you get the Ovation channel with your cable package,
                                         you can watch certain episodes of his globetrotting culinary
                                         show No Reservations on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET. Ovation
                                         is airing seasons five through eight in three-hour-block
                                         increments as part of Ovation’s Journy Thursdays.

                                           These episodes include Bourdain’s memorable trips to
                                         Vietnam, Rome, Beirut and Cuba; the season five episode
                                         where Bourdain answered the top 10 viewer questions from
                                         an online poll; the season six and season eight holiday
                                         specials; and the series finale set in Brooklyn, New York.
                                         According to Ovation, prepare to be surprised, terrified,
                                         disgusted and thoroughly entertained.

Trail Day in Washington, Missouri, was another big hit for residents of
that city, St. Clair, Union and other areas. The annual free event began fif-
teen years ago to provide seniors and the disabled with an opportunity to
enjoy the city’s parks and scenery. Held in part at the Washington Town &
Country Fairgrounds’ Swine Pavilion, the event included tractor-pulled                 NAME: _____________________________________

San Antonio Spurs basketball fans gave back and won big at this year’s
Silver & Black Give Back Go BinGO fundraiser at Jackpot Bingo in San
Antonio, Texas. For $50 admission, fans came to support the youth of San
Antonio through Silver & Black Give Back (SBGB), while playing Bingo
for major prizes like autographed Spurs memorabilia and one-of-a-kind
experiences. Tickets to the sold-out event included one Bingo card for
each game of the 12-round event, two drink tickets, a meal voucher, and
one ticket to a 2019 preseason Spurs home game. SBGB is a public char-
ity that empowers youth through service and sports through programs like
the Spurs Youth Basketball League, youth hockey and the SAFC Pro
Academy.
