Before the drink prices were raised, I remember the shooter blitzes they had at the Canad Inns bars - $1 per shot. Also, remember them having $1.75 cocktails and hi-balls on weekdays and those same prices before 9:00 pm on weekends. Friends and I would stock up and we would be covered for the night. Nothing like getting ****faced at the bar for $20! Guess that's a thing of the past though...

But Holden says he remembers the cheap booze at the Pembi and yet he is only 23? He must have been a pretty old-looking ten or eleven year old to have had the chance to sample the cheap booze Winnipeg bars had to offer back in 2000, isn't that right Holden?
I guess I don't remember then? I swear there used to be super cheap beer and that it got raised 3-4 years back for a similiar reason? ...

I mean I always looked older than I really was and I was 6'0'' at 13, but even I don't think I would have passed for 18 at 10 or 11
