just out of town..... on the road: the sky alive
The chance to see the spectacular Northern Lights makes a great late night activity in Churchill.... but watch out for polar bears. We went out with our tour bus and guides..... It was breathtakingly beautiful.
Dress Code: thick coats, boats, gloves,hat and scarf.
Some bar in Churchill
We walked around the corner to a small bar and had ourselves a good time. My girlfriend Barbara was accused of being a NEWFIE. (Newfoundlander) For some unknown reason this nearly started a brawl.
Dress Code: Something warm.
PUB: TUNDRA INN PUB
A place where people meet to eat - and drink.
A moderate amount of pub grub available but if you require a more substantial meal then the restaurant is through the door
Remember, like a number of places in Churchill, the pub only takes cash - no credit cards and as I discovered, it is a lonely walk in minus 30C the half mile to the only cash machine in town at RBC in the dead of night..
Friday night around 10pm is generally live entertainment and in this small area, the band can be pretty loud!
As Late November is basically the end of tourist season, it is odd in a pub to see fewer and fewer bottles of beer on the shelves, the reason being that they dont want to be left with a stock of drinks once the tourIsts have left, so its more a situation of downing whatever is available towards the end.
Dress Code: None - its way too cold
