Pretty sure he's with Jesus now.

I'll be in his neck of the woods tomorrow, going snowboarding in Fernie for the day.

You mean Deadmonton.... Personally I think its a shit hole. I get in and out as fast as possible. White Ave if you want a night club/patio drinking hole. I hate country music but the country bars are pretty popular and full of sluts. West Edmonton mall can eat up an entire day if you want, its something to see. I dunno what you like to do when you visit a city so cant really give you much more to go on.

Ah, I heard of the Calgary/Edmonton hate.

I like to eat & drink well and try hard not to be too much of a tourist. I can do country bars depending on if Canadian rednecks are better/worse than The ones in Texas or Louisiana.

Yeahhhhhhhhhh I'm not personally fond of Edmonton, only ever go there for work or hockey games in the past. HondaBilly might be able to give you any recommendations since he lives there. You should come to Calgary instead ;\)

Id recommend finding the city's best poutine, in Calgary its Big Cheese. Its something everyone has to do. You have to get 2 though, you need the basic fries, gravy & cheese and then something that isnt so classic.

Its prob not as a refined of a meal as you're use to but you cant not do it.

The hicks are exactly the same. We're the Texas of Canada. The further north you go the more rednecks you'll find. There will be plenty of dude bro's at any country bar. The only difference between our rednecks and yours is ours arent racists for the most part.

As for good food, you'll find low key pubs will be your best bet. The bigger they are/more advertising you see generally leads to basic frozen pub food that you'll only enjoy hungover or drunk. Great Canadian Brew House is an example of that. While its a great place to drink, the food is average at best.

Hopefully the weather is nice when you come. It's a real mixed bag that time of the year. Could be nice and warm like last year, or it could be really shitty and snowing.

Haven't booked a hotel yet, but I'm looking at some place called the Matrix [/Keanu] or the Four Points unless you have a good suggestion (budget is open, your exchange rate is ridic). I'll have a car as well.

As far as doing stuff, I'm pretty open. If I can find some sucker to show me around I usually let them take me around. Seems to have worked out so far when I meet up with other CSIers. If not then I'll just yelp it.

If you like walking, the river valley trails are pretty nice. It's such a tough time of the year though because of weather. But, if it's nice, Hawrelak Park is a great place to start. If you stay downtown it's pretty close to everything.

I had no idea where the Matrix was and had to look it up. I'm pretty close to it at least. You'd be a quick walk to the Legislature, which is not the most entertaining for sight seeing, but the grounds are really nice and there is lots of Alberta government history to see and read. The new visitor center is pretty nice. They usually have some neat government related historical stuff at all times. They recently had the Magna Carta on loan for the public to view. It was pretty interesting.

If you stay there, there is a great Thai place worth checking out. They even have a real ladyboy server. My wife and I go fairly often. https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/Matrix+Ho...41!2d53.5370342

High Level diner and Sugar Bowl are also great places for some decent food. Sugar Bowl has a great beer list, and it's nice to sit on their sidewalk patio and have a drink and people watch. They are local and have been around forever. They are a "quick" walk across the High Level bridge that has some pretty nice views of the city and downtown.

Why are you coming? Business? I would suggest a trip to the mountains, but it's a 3.5-4 hour drive. I would save it for your Calgary trip. It's much closer and easier to just do a day trip.

If you've never been, West Edmonton Mall is still pretty neat to see. Once you live here though you avoid it at all costs. Unless you have some shopping that needs to be done it's just a big mall with an amusement park and a water park inside it.

I've marked you in my calendar, so I can be reminded that you are coming. I will try and keep an eye out for interesting things that are coming up in the city that might be worth checking out.

Are you a golfer at all?

If you stay downtown, there are all sorts of pubs, and bars to check out.

Whyte Ave is close. It's the University party area if clubbing is your thing, but it also has a lot of good pubs and places to eat.

I will update as I think of other things.

Apparently the best poutine in Edmonton is close to the High Lever Diner and Sugarbowl. I've never been, but I see they have vegan options, so I might have to try it. (not vegan...lactose intolerant)
https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/Matrix+Ho...!2d53.52324!3e0

Looking up things to do is opening new doors for me.

This area is probably one of my favorites in the city. It's got a great view, there is a ton of places to eat, drink, get coffee, and walk to.

That feel when you take your sister and 2 young nieces to the airport for their 7am flight and are told they won't make the flight because it's 2 minutes before the close the flight for accepting baggage.....that feel is rage.

Fuck air canada in it's stupid face. This is the nail in the coffin for giving them any business. Did online check-in yesterday, went in this morning hit up a self check in terminal to print off boarding passes and pay for bag fees, it says to go to customer service for assistance. Wait in line for a few mins and the lady telling people which line to take immediately says they aren't going to make their flight because the flight closes in 2 minutes...I'm like well we're already checked in, why can't we drop off the bags and get them through security?

She ushers us up to a customer service lady, she's like yeahhh oooo not gunna make it...i'm like uhh they were checked in since yesterday and I have been here and already checked in since before the cut off, why can't we get them through? Boarding doesn't start for 15 minutes. Her response was "I don't know"

At this point I'm pretty steamed, I wasn't even looking at her and I mutter 2 fucking minutes, she says to me with tone "why is it our fault that you are late?" I'm like what...the....fuck. I tell her that I was speaking to myself and not to agitate me.

Stunned cunts exist in the world, and she was definitely one. She just wasn't a smart person, or helpful whatsoever. No one was looking/yelling around for the last name to try and get people onboard while we waited to talk to the first air canada lady, we were already checked in, if the self check in machines had just printed off the bag tags we could have dropped them off and got them through security before boarding even started. But nope, just stupidity and pretty much straight rudeness.

They ended up getting booked on a later flight, but instead of getting in at 5pm, they get in a midnight now. I guess my lesson learned is even if you're flying domestic, show up 39 hours early. I think I'll pay extra to fly westjet now.

wait a min... so you show up roughly 30 mins before the flight leaves and you dont understand why your baggage cant make it on? If they would have made it through security and made the gate they would have been fine. But that isnt nearly enough time for them to get the bags on the plane.

Oh and fuck westjet. Their seats a tiny. Every 2nd trip I take with them they leave my shit in another city. No free upgrades to 1st class. I avoid them like the plague.

I'm also not a golfer. I do enjoy the driving range though, and there is a pretty decent one in the river valley that should be open by then.

No we showed up an hour early, used the self check in terminals to print off boarding passes and pay bag fees, then it told us to contact the customer service agents for bag tags, then from here waiting to speak to someone they're like lol you late now, you fucked. In the time we waited and tried to sort things out they told us we're late and the flight is closed now.

I wish Canada had more than just 2 major airlines.
