TSAW Apr 2, 2011 09:44 AM

I came across this... Calgary's First Ever Poutine Crawl. I love poutine but I'm not sure even I could manage this! Check it out.

    Interesting concept, but I'm not sure if I could handle that much poutine in one day!

      In England, off the French ferry and waiting for a train home I got in to conversation with a French speaking Canadian.
      He denied 'His' French was any different to the language spoken in France,
      Then he denied there was such a thing at all called poutine.
      He then said maybe there was but he had never seen it.

      Poutine eh.

        So he had been hounded out of Canada, eh?

      God that sounds good! Porcini Truffle Poutine. I don't know if gluttony gets any better than this!

        I'm a longtime lurker but rarely post. My husband and I just signed up for this. I've never gone on any sort of "crawl" before but this certainly sounds interesting. I haven't tried the poutine at any of these places so I'm excited. Gluttony here I come!

          I so wish I could go to this but I have a scheduling conflict. Hope it goes well & there are more in the future. I never had poutine before moving here & I'm trying to make up for lost time. :)

          No Charcut poutine?

            This mid-atlantic girl covets your poutine access!

              Waiting for a report, maybe the attendees are still in cardiac rehab?

                I found this review. Sounded really good (and bad at the same time!).
