In a little under 90 minutes, the biggest gong show this city sees each year will start, the Calgary Stampede Pub Crawl '04. The Goon is on his way over to partake in the festivities this year.

For any other Calgary Wieners, we're starting at Tantra at 1pm. We're both bringing cameras, so we'll post some drunken pics tomorrow...that is, of course, if we make it back alive.

My spare liver is currently cooling in the fridge. I got it from the guy Larry Hagman uses for his extras.

Shouldn't we have sent along some sort of portable internet appliance so we could get hourly/contunuous reports? Watching the decline across the course of the day has to be much more entertaining than the after-the-fact summary! (And y'just never know when the embedded GPS is going to come in handy. "I don't know how I got here, but I seem to be in Penticton, wearing an 'I Masturbate' T-shirt (The W).")

The official numbers are as follows:

8112 people
208 buses
First beer was opened at 1:15pm
An amazingly high number of skinny blonde cowgirls
An untold number of cans/bottles of Budweiser
1 giant bottle of Gatorade
4 Advil

We started at Tantra and hit three other bars...the Golden Garter in the Westin, Spin Nightclub, and Coyote's. Other groups started out at Cowboy's, The Whiskey, The Back Alley...you name it. We were lucky enough to be on the bus with one of the organizers. It had the "I'm back in university" feel every pub crawl should have.

Here's The Goon with his new friend Leah. She was our Shooter Girl at Tantra.

Here's the line of people leaving Tantra for the buses.

Here's Erin, Crystal, Mike and The Goon at the Golden Garter.

The Goon. The most "country" guy you may ever meet.

(image removed)

Some sort of bizarre Toronto-influenced line dance.

You don't even want to know what's going on here.

(image removed)


All in all, a ridiculous good time was had by all. We lost the Goon around 9pm...he decided to stay at Coyote's while Mike, Erin and I headed to the Stampede Grounds. The line to get into Nashville North stretched for at least 2 miles. I'm guessing The Goon's pics will be up shortly...if he's out of bed, that is.

My apologies if I've screwed the margins. If anyone can fix it, please do. Thanks.

True enough, The Goon (Rob) is way too into country.

Every time he comes to San Diego he ends up at InCahoots. For some reason, this bar is completely country - but it's right in the middle of Mission Valley here in San Diego.

I'd understand if it was in East County - but Mission Valley - crazy.

Last time I went with him, and swear to God, the bouncer at the door made me tuck in my shirt to get in the place.

I assume we'll be heading out that way at the end of the month?

That Goon's a sexy motherfucker, isn't he? What a nice photogenic young man.

This pose in particular - I don't think Budweiser could do better, even with people they PAY to post like that.

Thanks, I like the "nice young man" comment, even though I'm older than ya by a couple of months. That Oil of Olay works wonders. The funny thing is, I hate Bud, but they had Bud specials going on all day.

I'll just post a link to my Yahoo album(I know, I know, but it's all I have right now) here.

When Bullitt and pals left me, I hung out on the patio at Coyotes chatting with my real estate agent and his odd father, who used the c-word in conversation a little too much. I was at a table by myself for a couple of minutes when a few nice ladies asked if they could hang out at my table...then the shooter girl came by...then the cleavage came out.

Fun times.

edit: Bullitt's dancing prowess cannot be missed either. It's image 2214.

Haha. I did see several empty (I'm assuming anyway) beer cans thrown out of the bus windows into traffic though. That's rather unsafe.

I can confirm that was not us.

And, yes, pieman...I AM rather smooth. Thank you for noticing. That's about as "cowboy" we get in Nova Scotia! :)

Bullit: I double-dog DARE you to bring The Goon back to Hali and wear those getups to the Liquordome. Just let me know in advance so's I can be there with a camera.

Aw, who'm I kidding? You'd get beat and he'd walk away with some honeys. The Goon IS a fine-lookin' young man.

Goon: I dunno, but the later pictures on the Yahoo page there make it look like y'all might have ended up in Cougar Country...not that there's anything wrong with that, I'm just sayin' is all ;P

Well, Alberta IS Cougar Country. Whenever my friends go to the Metro, they get hit on CONSTANTLY by cougs. That's the main reason I usually stick to pubs.

It was indeed Cougar country later on that evening. It was also cougarlicious last night at the Blue Rodeo concert. I don't know if I'm going to survive this week.
