What're your plans for Canada Day? Anything special beyond the old tradition of getting relentlessly drunk and watching fireworks? (Because thaaaat's probably going to be my day, at least.)

    eh, most parts in canada near the US just kinda do things when it's easiest to schedule between the two anyway. so if's aorund a weekend it's an entire weekend of firework shows here and there instead of doing everything on the 1st or the 4th.

    I think it's Pride week in Toronto, isn't it? Trudeau was just at their parade over the weekend.

    Going to have to miss the fireworks to hang out at home with 9 dogs, 3 of them two weeks old. (Wife has a night shift so I'm on puppy duty) (oh woe is me)

    During the day if the weather's nice I'll probably bike downtown and then wander around the waterfront, eat some poutine and a beavertail (note: not an actual beaver's tail, but a fried pastry with cinnamon sugar on it)

    Already thinking ahead to next year though, trying to figure out if I can get up to Ottawa for the 150th celebrations because they will be insane. I have a great uncle that lives there, I may see if I can visit him (he lives a 15-20 minute walk from the Aviation museum, which would also be rad as heck)

  • MeldingMelding Registered User regular
    normally i would get deceptively drunk at my uncle's and eat a free meal, but now i live on the other side of the nation, and my nearest uncle is like a 4 hour drive.

    I am super excited for the 150th next year. No matter where I'm working, I'm planning on taking time off to come home for that weekend because giant robots through my hometown's downtown core oh my GOODNESS

    The Aviation museum is pretty rad, but if you haven't been to the War Museum yet, that's probably the best one in town (and has received international recognition for its design and collection, too!)

    If any of you fine folks end up in town next year I can give you the grand tour. Probably not going downtown this year though; much as seeing Coeur de Pirate for the first time or seeing Metric live again for free could be fun, I'm not sure I can convince too many locals to make the trek to see the fireworks with 100 000 other people for the Nth time. It's exhausting, and with the gigantic sink hole that opened up in the core a week or two back getting home would be even more crazy than usual.

    Toronto has upgraded to a Pride Month; the parade is this July 3rd!

    Also I just saw this today and the secondhand embarrassment hits me hard... but it strikes me as an quintesentially Canadian kind of awkwardness???

    using plane cheese in poutine is fucking gross.

    I could never be Canadian. I don't want gravy or cheese products anywhere near my fries.

    However I do respect it. God speed you guys. God speed.

    I tried that. Not my thing either.

    Actually plain fries aren't bad usually.

    Poutine with pulled pork on top is wonderful! There was also a place I went in Montreal that had poutine with guacamole on top; I might have been influenced the flask of whiskey I'd had on the two-hour bus there, but it was surprisingly fantastic.

    Though the absolute best I have ever had was actually in Toronto near Kensington Market, where the guy makes his cheese curds fresh every day. Fucking perfection.

    the big question is at what point does it stop being poutine and become a fry dish

    when the fries, gravy, and cheese curd no longer make up 70% of the serving.

    Ya, I mostly left curds off because usually then you have to deal with " Wtf is a curd" when explaining to non - Canadians

    but this gives the wrong impression, and you end up with a McDonald's poutine using cheddar.

    Do you want that?

    I sure as hell don't
