We sampled four fancy poutines paired with four local beers. Pretty much everybody agreed that the poutine was delicious, especially the one topped with Montreal smoked meat. The Coolcumber fruit beer from Wicked Weed Brewing in Asheville, which was paired with the Mexican poutine, was by far the favourite.

Thanks to everyone for hanging out with us and a huge thank you to CanSouth’s Social Media volunteer for organizing this fun and tasty event!
CanSouth gathered at the North Carolina Museum of Art yesterday to listen to fellow Canadian Ed Stephenson playing with the Paco Band. Wonderful music, nice food and great company–take a look at the photos below!
If you’ve enjoyed Ed’s music and would like hear him again (or couldn’t make last evening’s event), you can catch him at other venues around the Triangle… and even in Toronto! Take a look at his calendar to figure out where he’ll be playing next–solo or with the Paco Band!
Thank you to CanSouth volunteers who planned this event and all who attended last night.
Staff of the Canadian Consulate in Atlanta, CanSouth and CBA-NC members socialized at PNC Arena on Tuesday and listened to Don Waddell talk about the Canes. Afterwards, we were treated to one very exciting game: a goal that tied the game at 0.03 second of the third period, 5 minutes of overtime and a shoot-out where the Hurricanes scored to win 4-3 against the Ottawa Senators. What a fun evening that was!
CanSouth’s event photographer shared some images of our boys from Ottawa in action.

Twenty or so Canucks got together on Sunday November 29 to watch the CFL’s Grey Cup Finals at the Carolina Ale House at Brier Creek. Labatt Blue and great poutine were had by all, amidst much laughter and game cheers. (The Edmonton Eskimos won over the Ottawa Redblacks 26-20.) A million thanks to Bob Savage for making this event possible at the Carolina Ale House and to Janice for coordinating on the CanSouth side of things.
