While Calgary is caught up in all things Stampede related, there's a lot more going on in the city that has nothing to do with Cowboys. There's a Calgary caesar bar pop-up happening this week and anyone who craves the taste of Mott's Clamato has to try one! This is perfect if you want a unique drinking opportunity without going to Stampede.
Calgarians and everyone else who have flooded to the city for Stampede will be treated to the YYcaesar Bar by Air Canada to try a VR flight experience and try a variety of Caesars. Plus, you can feel good about ordering another round because part of every Caesar sold will go towards the Calgary Firefighters Charitable Foundation.
What's on the menu at the YYCaesar Bar? You'll get a chance to taste the classic version as it was intended when Calgary's own Walter Chell first made the drink. Plus, you can try Caesar varietals with a modern twist and inspired by the Calgary Flames! There are even more Caesars inspired by Canada's Olympic and Paralympic Athletes.
The Caesar is the most Canadian drink ever. It's different than a Bloody Mary, which is more popular in the United States because it uses Clamato instead of regular tomato juice. Plus, we have a tendency to load up our Caesars with every manner of garnish imaginable! You simply can't get a Caesar anywhere else.
If you're in town for Stampede and looking for a place to whet your whistle, then you should check out the YYCasear pop-up! It's perfect for anyone wanting to celebrate Canada beyond Canada Day and into the summer.
