    Roy Thompson Hall

    by traveldave Updated Oct 21, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Toronto's Roy Thompson Hall opened in 1982 after four years of construction. It was named after a $4,500,000 donation was made by the family of the late Roy Thompson, first Lord Thompson of Fleet, and the founder of the Thompson Corporation publishing empire. The 2,630-seat hall was renovated in 2002. It is the home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, and Toronto International Film Festival gala screenings.

    Due to significant financial losses, in 1984 the trustees expanded the scope of programs offered by Roy Thompson Hall to broaden its audience and increase revenues. Now, in addition to classical music, patrons can attend concerts featuring classical jazz, pop, and world music, as well as dance performances.

    George Street: George Street, St. John's, Newfoundland

    by jamiesno Updated Feb 24, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In keeping with the best around the country I am putting my case forward for St. John's, Newfoundland's George Street as the best nightlife and party spot in all of Canada.

    No joke! I havn't been to Bourbon Street yet but I would suggest it's on par with Bourbon as well or better!

    George Street is packed with literally hundreds of bars, pubs and nightclubs of all varieties and all within a 5 minute stroll from each other at most. They are wall to wall so most are simply walk out one door and walk into another!

    I provided a link to my St. John's page specifically where I have highlighted about 20 of the places on that street but there are many many more.

    Some of my favorites are O'Reilly's Irish Pub, the Sundance and Peddler's. I remember one time going to the Majestic a lot but its changed a lot there now.

    Throughout the summer there are some great festival like the George Street Festival, Halloween is hilarious, St. Paddy's day is great and generally any week from Thursday onward you are good to go!!

    Besides the amazing number of bars the great restaurants are also numerous so if this is what your looking for, have fun on George Street, Canada!!!

    anywhere under a dark and clear sky: Northen Lights

    by Babcia Written Jul 14, 2008

    You can see the Aurora borealis/northen lights whenever the sky is clear and dark (which is why most people see them in winter), and usually but not always north of about 52° north (that's about Calgary's latitude).
    The best times are in the spring and fall, must have something to do with the earth's position in its' orbit around the sun.
    But the bottom line is that you can't predict where and when they'll appear. They have been seen as far south as Colorado, even Florida, believe it or not. And sometimes there are none for extended periods of time. The phenomenon is not very well understood even by scientists who study such things as earth's magnetosphere and coronal mass ejections. The universe is full of mysteries!!

    By the way, there were some lovely northern lights about two nights ago, visible from Edmonton where I live (53.5°N), and this is July!!!

    A website for you:

    Good luck!!

    Honestly, the nightlife in Red...

    by jenniferhen Updated Sep 16, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Honestly, the nightlife in Red Deer, Alberta is not that great. Maybe it is because I live here?? I do not know but we have a lot of honkey bars and LAME clubs, way to many YOUNG YOUNG kids go and it all about getting wasted. If you want to go and listen to some REAL variety in music and see some awesome dancing...go to downtown Calgary.
    If you are into cheap drinks, we have that!!! Maybe that is why everyone gets so loaded. I am more into hanging out at pubs, we have a few Irish pubs and sports bars, they are great. If you must go out in Red Deer, the bar of choice for variety is County Club.(they do play rock) Beware of the old women though...we call this club, the cougar careful, the lighting is low and the women are old.

    Dress Code: People in Red Deer dress BORING....look at the Gap and dress like that. If you are going to Calgary, anything goes pretty much. Red Deer is still too small I guess, you will see the odd person in a crazy outfit but is too damn cold to dress sleazy for the bar. The cougars usually do though.

    Spend the night on Little Italy

    by portgrl Written May 31, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Little Italy, as it is known, on College Street from Bathurst westward, has cool and sophisticated bars and restaurants. Although the area is probably more accurately described as Little Portugal, it is an area full of European and mediterrean flair.

    College Street West is full of restaurants and bars to check out. Everything can be found here: cafes, lounges, bars, clubs, trattorias, pool halls...the list goes on.
    You can have a good time spending the night on College Street - having dinner, going to a club or simply trying a wonderful ice cream while walking on the street.

    This is a photo from little Italy, during the day, as you can see :) but is the only one that I have...

    The Gallery Neighborhood Pub: Yellowknife, NWT...The Gallery Neighborhood Pub

    by Cabana_Boy Updated Dec 5, 2003

    First of all, my trip to Yellowknife was one of my most memorable...perhaps because its the farthest North I have ever been, perhaps its those cool polar bear shaped license plates. Whatever the case, a truly good time was had, especially the night we went drinking in the Gallery Neighborhood Pub.

    The scene was crazy, it was like the whole city showed up to drink there. And lets not forget the lovely bartender, Damian, and all those shots of Tequila...

    While stumbling back to the Explorer, I saw one of the most dramtic sunsets in my life. It was 3am and the sun was hanging low on the horizon, but refusing to totally disappear...

    Playdium: Game till you drop

    by butterflyJas Written Nov 27, 2003

    As I think most nightclubs aren't really good I found Playdium. It's in Metrotown (is also a Skytrain Station) Metrotown is a huge shopping mall and cinema comples which is also the location for a quite big game hall. They have tons of car racing games , Dance Dance Revolution etc. It's really big. It's open till 4am! and it opens at 10am.

    Dress Code: Absolutly no dress code. it's just gaming...

    BLUNT BROTHERS: Marijuana

    by Thaiinaug Written Apr 25, 2003

    Blunt brothers is like a amsterdam cof. shop withouth the amsterdam and without the somewhat legal pot. You can smoke freely in Blunt Brothers and you can get a nice cup of joe and some pretty good pastries while you take in the smells. Pretty cool place but way over rated in my opinion.

    Dress Code: Whatever

    Churchill's Pub: Saint John, New Brunswick - Churchill's Pub

    by Cabana_Boy Written Dec 16, 2002

    Churchill's Pub is situated on the ground floor below Church Street Steakhouse. The decor is trimmed in a dark wood that gives the place a real comfortable feeling or they just had the lights dim and I was more pissed up than I thought.

    Anyway, the night that I was in there, it was just me and a hand full of locals...and I think most of them actually worked there, so, everyone was friendly and talkative. By and large, the mood was very laid back and I wished that I could go back for more pints.

    The Lunar Rogue: Fredericton, New Brunswick...The Lunar Rogue...

    by Cabana_Boy Written Nov 23, 2002

    This is a great little bar with lots to drink...but best of all, they support the local stuff, Picaroon Brewery. I particularly enjoyed the hell out of the Picaroon's Bitter and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys British style ale.

    Also, check out the story that inspired the owner to name his pub The Lunar Rogue. As the story goes a man named Henry More Smith (a.k.a. the Lunar Rogue) was accused of stealing a horse back in 1824, was captured by the Sheriff, Walter Bates, but later escaped. Well, the Sheriff, posted signs offering twenty pounds reward for the re-capture of The Lunar Rogue...but alas the Rogue's spirit only lives on in the pub of his name...
