Manisha and I went to the Stampede yesterday after work. A lot of my friends told me I HAD to try La Poutinerie inside the grounds, so we did… and it did not disappoint :) We also bought rush standing tickets to the chucks and evening show, which was a good decision because: a) I’ve missed watching the chucks every day, and b) the fireworks rocked! I’d also never seen the grandstand so packed. Ever. Literally every single seat was taken.
The only sucky part of the night was trying to take the C-train back home. Calgary Transit needs to realize one train every 5-7 minutes does not cut it during Stampede time.
