Canada House – Poutine and Olympians

Located near the curling center is the Canada House. The people were friendly, the beer was cold, and the Olympians, including the medalists, from the day’s events made appearances and mingled with the patrons. Desperate for a taste of food from home, Elizabeth and I ordered poutine and a cheeseburger with fries. It was my first time eating poutine and it was delicious! The house was so lively as people made new friends and cheered for the Canadian Olympians playing in their respective sports. Around 10:30pm, a mini ceremony was held in which the athletes that were medalists were honored by their fans, family, and friends. Having the opportunity to interact with the friendly people and see the athletes up close was a great time. To add to the experience, there was even an outdoor terrace with firepits and blankets for a more quiet and low-key atmosphere. We were able to relax outside for a little bit until we needed the warmth and energy of the indoors. Overall, the Canada house was a great time with great people and great food.
