    Not shocking. It was 20 if not more when I went 20 years ago.

    Heck what are movies now? I'm sure it was 2o or something last year when I went. Use to always be under 10 bucks.

    It’s a big range depending on the theatre and time of day. Twenty bucks at WEM. Nine bucks for a matinee at City Centre.

    Nine bucks if you want to sit in a mostly empty theatre. Lots of leg room. ;)

    Anything cineplex is like $13-14, add another $3 for AVX and another $3 for 3D which no one likes but every movie is.

    And they raised scene points from 1000-1500 points for free movie

    White Sunday. This celebration means if you haven't looked at your driveway or back door all week good luck getting in your detached garage or even driving out of it. if your garage door will even open. So pray for Snow day I guess.

    Man what a cluster**** dump. ALL ****ing weekend constant snow. Shoveled no less than 6 times in Millwoods this weekend. Will have to again in the morning. The snow front is just staying in place. Just dumping everything in one area. Which happens to be Edmonton. The worst is trying to shovel the snow that is on top of the sheets of freezing rain we had just last week. Put a lot of salt down but still some icy patches. Which makes for interesting moments as you're pushing huge mounds of snow.

    We had about 1 foot of snow here in this area all in one weekend. Fortunately not too much drifting.

    I love Edmonton, really I do, but several days of not even seeing the sun, nothing but dark heavy cloud and fog and snow, and the *days* only being 19hrs long right now occasionally has its effects. With the overcast conditions today it was getting dark at 3;30. ****.

    Crazy thing is all the snow nearly melted last couple weeks and now I have piles 5 feet high.

    Travelling back to Edmonton for the holidays, first real winter in a decade for me.

    Any suggestions for things to do for New Year's, for someone in their 20s? Still in the getting hammered phase of my life before I reach the fireworks and then bed phase.

    I noticed a place called Alibi Ultra Lounge doing a New Year's thing. Is that place any good?

    This weather is why I love Alberta. Amazing snow in warm weather - it's nearly perfect weather in my books. Spent some time on the trails yesterday and will do so again today with my kids. A half hour to shovel my walks and back entrance to the garage is a small price to pay for perfection.

    I don't have an issue of snow, but when it's like 3 feet of it in 1 weekend...that's a bit much at one time.

    It's like 1 foot in one weekend. But I'd take 3 for sure! The more the merrier.

    In sad boxing new Adonis Stevenson is in an induced coma. Upgraded to stable condition, which is good news.

    Even moreso when you do the neighbors walks as well, which I always like doing out of kindness but today even shovelled a path all the way to the local school a block away. Mothers in strollers having all kinds of trouble in this along with some of the handicapped folks in our neighborhood.

    PLEASE people, shovel your front sidewalk. This is not something that is optional, its a requirement, and for some is an impediment to being able to go anywhere. Not even the Motorized handicapped scooters were getting through this snow.

    Prince Albert's 19 game winning streak comes to an end at the hands of the last place Swift Current Broncos 3-2 in the shootout.

    Fair enough lol

    Noticed that there's 3 venues downtown doing events:
    The Craft Beer Market
    Underground Tap & Grill
    The Canadian Brew House

    Any of those stand out? My wife and I are after great beer and good atmosphere.

    Underground has had some problems as well. I don't know much about the Brew House.

    The Craft Beer market would probably be the best of these options. I like the atmosphere there.

    Take a look at how much they charge as well for getting in if price is any issue. Craft usually has a good crowd. Things don't tend to go sideways there because of the clientele, operation, and who they market to. Seems to be a professional crowd but not pretentious. Just a nice space, lots of room, good service. Might pay a bit more there. On NYE especially its important not to end up in a dive. Word of mouth is not to stay anywhere till last call although you would be fine in Craft. Problems invariably occur at other establishments or districts at last call. Understand as well that UBER will likely have surge pricing on NYE as they often have (I think they still do this) and you could end up paying more than you expect. Cabs hard to come by. Busses run late if it helps.

    Just checked, Craft is charging 70-80 bucks for a NYE dinner and dance. Pretty standard. I haven't ate much there so can't vouch for food but have heard good things.

    I haven't been in a year, but Beer Revolution was pretty good in Oliver Square.

    Thanks for the info. I've got an Airbnb downtown so I'm hoping they're all a short walk away.

    Underground is also doing a fancy 3 course meal thing, what exactly do you mean by problems? Is it the type of crowd?

    It's been a while since I was last there but if you like a relaxed quiet atmosphere, Underground is a good place to check out.

    my bad, I got it mixed up with this event, which oddly enough is the same location as the latest bar shooting DT just last week.
