Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that the caesar is one of Canada’s most famous cocktails. The “unofficial drink of Canada” is a spicy and salty mixture that is typically made with vodka, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, spices, and Clamato juice. Visitors to Canada may know this drink by another name (Bloody Mary), but the main difference is the addition of Clamato juice.

This Thursday before the May long weekend, Canadians from coast to coast will be coming together for a toast to Canada’s unofficial cocktail for National Caesar Day on Thursday, May 16th.

For both the caesar connoisseur and the uninitiated, these tasty and tangy drinks can vary dramatically from bar to restaurant. So, if you’re looking for an excuse to celebrate with a tall glass of the Canadian classic cocktail, check out one of these fine establishments listed below:

Winnipeg band Mise en Scene were one of two bands playing the official (re)opening night of the Railway, April 5 2017. Shawn Conner photo.

The good news: the iconic train is there, and the ancient radiators, and the owl, and the lion, and the horse, and the crumbling old-timey cash register, and the stained-glass sign reading “Beer Parlour”.

Gone too though are the signed photos and posters of bygone shows that marked the Railway Club’s historical importance in Vancouver’s music scene.

Nevertheless, the reopening of the downtown venue, refurbished as the Railway Stage and Beer Café (579 Dunsmuir St.), is mostly good news for fans of live music, comedy and craft beer.

Where to watch Super Bowl 2017 in Vancouver

Yes, it’s time for another Super Bowl. This one is billed as “LI” (that’s 51 for all you non-Latin speakers out there). If that wasn’t exciting enough, the game features helmet-t0-helmet combat between, uh, the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. For sports fans, the Feb. 5 occasion is one of the biggest days of the year. For the rest of us, it’s a chance to see what Lady Gaga’s going to wear.

No matter which side of the sports fence you’re on, Vancouver is manning up with its own Super Bowl celebrations. In particular, the Donnelly Group is partying like it’s 1999 with four of its drinking establishments (Cinema, Bimini, Butcher & Bullock, Lamplighter) given over to screening the game. Here are a few places you catch the action.
