Trip to Calgary, need suggestions

Heading to Calgary for a few days next weekend, was wondering if there is anything you guys suggest I do while I'm in the city. Gonna be visiting friends, so anything like lasertag/go-karts would suffice.

All I know, is we're hitting up Boogie Burger, and taking on the Reaper.

HF meet-up

Kart World is good, and there's lots of laser tag places as well. IMO Paintball or Airsoft are more fun, but whatevs.

It's not ALL we want to do. It's just a starting point.

We're keeping it fairly cheap for food. Going to Mongo's Grill, seeing as he's never been there.

Edit:
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

No Mongo's in Calgary. According to the site, there are only 5 worldwide. Two are in Winnipeg...

Good call on Boogies Burgers, btw - although the reaper is overrated (and kind of gross IMO).


Depends what you like to do. If you like laser tag, then paintball is a good option. The outdoor one at Rampage is intense - espeically for a fat ******* like me (I need bigger trees to hide behind). http://www.eatpaint.com/


For an interesting food experience (and if you really like garlic) try Antonio's Garlic Clove. Garlic is in everything, including the ice cream.

There's a Stamps/Riders game tonight

Joe Rogan stand up at Jack Singer tomorrow night

UFC 149 is here Saturday (although the card has been destroyed by injuries) so there's loads of tickets on kijiji

The zoo is a laugh too if you're into that sort of thing

That's a cool spot man, I was there for a team building day with work a few months back.

If you have kids there is some really cool stuff. If you don't, but are just a big kid yourself like I am, then you'll have a great time regardless lol

My buddy owns Boogies Burgers an they are beyond amazing. Best burgers ever.

Other than that, head west out to Bragg Creek and Kanaskis. Beauty out there.

COP Zipline and Canada Hall of Fame are both worth checking out
