Spun off from this thread, because I could, and because I've never made a thread before.

Edmonton PAX? Random musings? Why we hate Toronto, and Calgary? Oh wait this isn't D&D :oops:

GO!

    We should get together at the Black Dog or something.

    Cause it's easily one of the best bars on Whyte.

    I don't own tight enough jeans to get into Black Dog.

    But yea, we should get together on Whyte somewhere.

    Tight jeans? What?

    It's like... last time I went there it was with a group of people from work.

    Regular jeans and button-up shirts all around.

    No idea what people wore when -you- went there.

    Last time I went to Black Dog, like 2 years ago, it was full of the indiest of indies. Maybe they've all moved on now.

    Yeah, it seemed like a good bar the times I've been recently. Music's reasonably quiet (and good), you can converse, and they have decent beer on tap.

    I mean if you have a better suggestion, by all means.

    Black Dog most certainly _is_ emo/hipster/trendy

    Not on the level of Filthy McNasty's, but at least Filthy's has cheap pints

    The Black Dog used to have good Guinness on tap and was a great place to lounge with friends. Has that somehow changed? It was a great spot for the 2002 World Cup.

    My problem with Black Dog is that we always seemed to get there too late to get a booth and ended up sitting on the crappy stools across from the bar where people bump into you constantly.

    It's been pretty good the times I've gone. It helps that a friend of mine works there as a bouncer so we tend to get good deals on booze.

    The Druid had a very "be older than twenty five and not a tosser, please" vibe to it when I went, which spoke well. That was years ago though so who knows where it's at now.

    We can always go to the Strat for a laugh. Or that cougar bar up by Kingsway.

    Now I see why you call The Black Dog an emo/hipster bar.

    That's called 'clean'. It's a scary smell, I know, but you'll get used to it.

    And those clothes? We call that 'moderately well-dressed'.

    I'm sorry, I'm in a foul mood right now.

    Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie have another song (well, several actually). This one's the Alberta Anthem, which in the style of an old German war anthem (which I can't find on the Internet so you'll just have to deal):
    Alberta uber alles
    King Ralph our top banana
    Your cities much like Dallas
    While the rest is like Montana
    May your fields be ever wheaty
    And your cattle ever meaty
    Let us crush, crush, crush all our enemies!
    WHEAT
    BLOOD
    OIL
    ALBERTAAAAAAAA
