    Maple Syrup

    Okay so I know this doesn't have anything to do with skating but I love going to the sugar bush for fresh Maple Syrup and for those of you that don't have sugar bushes and have car you should try and get there, we have a bunch around the outskirts of town and the sap is running.

    This one has the best sausages http://mclachlansyrup.ca/ ,
    this one is the closest to those not downtown and in the south end

    and this one is run by the Kinsmen and the money goes to charity

    Are these like the cabanes à sucre in Quebec; that is, are there meals involved?

    In Vermont, you get syrup at a sugar house; maybe sugar on snow, maybe with the traditional accompaniments of dill pickles and fresh, hot doughnuts, but no meals.

    In Ontario we call them Sugar Bush or Sugar Shack, same as Quebec. You would have to buy the food but yes, always pancakes and yummy maple syrup. A few also have baked brown beans with maple syrup, and either bacon or sausage. They may do the sugar on the snow, but not usually.

    Hotels

    There are some more rooms few or at least there were at some of the downtown hotels, I heard today that all the rooms they had to have blocked can now be released.

    Good to know. In VT, the sugar bush is the stand of maple trees, not the house. That's why the ski area Sugarbush is called that.

    The house is a sugar house. Sugar Shack is an old song in VT.

    Thanks all.

    I only carry some candy and some crackers. Honestly dont need to carry large quantities of food.
    Hope they let us take a water bottle in - happy to buy from the vendor but still need to have handy.

    The food menu looks wonderful with plenty of choices. It was awful at the GPF last year.

    I wonder if Toller is going to be around due to the fact that his art is being displayed and sold. Any idea?
