Calgary, Winnipeg and in between

Joanie | Jun 9, 2009 07:29 AM

Just booked a flight to Calgary on Aug. 7 where I'll meet a friend who's driving back to the east coast thru Canada. We'll stay in CAL a few nites, drive and stop somewhere (Regina?) and end up in Winnipeg then I fly back to Boston. I hate asking the super general question, but can you suggest fun spots along that route? I read the thread on CAL cheap eats which mentioned schwarma. I'll keep that in mind since that's the best food in Berlin and I'll see if anyone can do it as well as they do. Also saw the post on newish lounges and would like to have one fancy cocktail. We usually hit one higher end spot but like fun "underground" places with good/decent food, drinks and good (rock) music is a plus. We've got pretty good bahn mi in Boston, anything else that's specific to Calgary/Winnipeg? Are there certain areas of those cities that are best to stay in? Are there real diners out there? Should we go to Lake Winnpeg or some other specific place in between the two cities? I appreciate your replies and if it's off the food topic, you can email with details. Thanks.
