Filled with delightful and quirky trivia, And the Tony Goes to … collects these anecdotes and appearances. Some of these stories you may have heard before—others will take you by surprise.  All of them offer a bit of insight and fun, and the chance to bask in Newfoundland and Labrador’s 15 minutes of fame.
