Canadians are no stranger to cracking a cold one with the boys on the back porch while wearing shorts in -25° weather (-32° with the windchill).

And now all that hard work and practice is finally paying off!


From December 1-3, enjoy the Winter Patio Weekend in Edmonton! Loads of your favourite bars and pubs have opened their patios for one winter weekend and one winter weekend only, so get out there, bud!
