I saw strippers and Canada so... In 1985 We were en route to Medicine Hat to play the Medicine Hat Blue Jays. (Pioneer League) And 3 of our guys
were from the Dominican Republic and didn't have the proper paperwork to enter Canada as their work Visa was to play pro baseball in the U.S.. So
about 3 miles We stopped from the border and all 3 of these guys went down in the luggage area and hid while going through the gates. There was no
problem and when the bus stopped 5 miles from the border they were let out, dripping in sweat.
We stayed about 3 blocks from a strip joint but what sucked was the Canadian brewers were on strike so We had to pay higher prices for the beers, and
as You probably surmised I'm typing about higher beer prices AT a strip club, the dancers were even upset about it as it crimped their tips, this I
overheard as a dancer was sitting on My neighbor at the bar, on His lap.. I paid $25.00 for a case of Rainier (the one w/the big red R and not
Rainier Ale "Green Death")
I'd also add that the Canadian people are some of the most friendly and hospitable as they come, each one that I came across has been friendly and
outgoing and I'm not just typing about strippers and bartenders, whose earnings increase when they are more friendly. I also played in 1987 and went
to Vancouver that time and those folks were also very pleasant. If it weren't so cold, I'd consider moving there when I tire of Flori-Duh. I just
can't deal with the cold weather.
I plan to visit Canada next year when I take My semi-annual "Boastman's Holiday" when I visit places that are cannabis friendly environs and spend My
$$$ there, I might even see if that strip joint is there so I can take My Wife by there and if they have Rainier I would've gone 'Full Circle' You
know sans bringing some sand to the beach; sandwich to a banquet-bringing My Wife this time..
