Well I for one preliminarily vote for the one in Wisonsin, as the one in the middle of Nowheresville Alberta would be a pain in the butt to get to in January.

WI is plausible for me.  I would want organize a pilgrimage to Paisley Park tho!

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.

The entirety of the middle of the US is about the same level of pain for me to travel to, so I hold no particular opinions.

I found Le Big Bang in Quebec which looks very nice. :)

That place looks really nice. Weird, nonsensical, but nice.

Added bonus: it's in the same town where friends of mine have a brewpub.

I guess it should have been called Le Bang Bang, and not Le Big Bang, huh?

That Rube Goldberg ceiling. It was the first thing that came into my head. And standing at 6'4" I would be afraid of my head coming into it.  *ba duh dump*

It is strange how uncomfortable I am around people taller than me (6'3").  It just feels so weird, like the other person is a mutant or alien or something.
