Yellow Dog Tavern

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been to Yellow Dog Tavern. I walk down Donald north of Portage fairly frequently. However, the tavern has been closed for a good portion of the Covid lockdown. From the signs on the doors, it appears the owner decided to stay closed until they could have close to full capacity. Last night I stopped in for an early supper. It gave me a chance to catch the end of the Jets game, while…Continue readingYellow Dog Tavern

Winnipeg Trolley Company Ale Trail

Friday night I took a little hometown tour. It’s called the Ale Trail tour, and it’s run by the Winnipeg Trolley Company. I was one of several social media and tourist type people who had been invited. My connection to the company is that Ben Gillies, the owner of the Winnipeg Trolley Company is also majority owner of Fools and Horses, my favourite coffee shop. I’d asked him about the trollies a couple of months ago, and he told me…Continue readingWinnipeg Trolley Company Ale Trail
