18. Grab an afternoon slice at Gnarlyroots! 

There's never a bad time for pizza, and you'll need a snack for a big night ahead.

Beers and margaritas on an outdoor patio, coupled with cheap Mexican food sounds like a great afternoon to me.

A charming old-school pub with rotating craft beers and micro brews is a solid way to start a long night.

Welcome to one of the best perks of being legal in Whistler, the crazy nightlife.
