Houston Elites Blame Canada!
Justin Bieber, Rush and Celine Dion aren't the only Canadian imports to hit the States. Right here in H-town you'll find The Maple Leaf Pub, the city's only pub just for Canucks – and those who love 'em!
On March 22, the Yelp Elite Squad made way to The Maple Leaf Pub to experience the best from our Northern Neighbors. Cold, crisp Molson Canadian filled the bellies of thirsty beer knurds, and as Jeff C puts it: "I never knew I would actually like Canadian beer!" Well how aboot that? For those lookin' to wet their whistles some more, 40 Creek Whisky was on site serving up straight pours (very smooth in taste, we must add), along with the refreshing concotion otherwise known as Maple Leaf's Tundra Tea – Danielle G's "favorite drink of the evening."
The excitement continued with Canadian tunes playing in the background, Canadian bacon pizzas and B-I-N-G-O! Multiple prizes were up for grabs: bar tabs, Houston Aeros tickets, golfing passes and a pair of tickets to Cirque Du Soleil and backstage tour! But believe it or not, the highlight of the night was the surprise appearance and performance by the Houston Aeros dance team – the Aero Dynamics!
