Canadian Exchange Rate - WTF??

The US to Canadian exchange rate is crap. Check this out http://www.xe.com/ucc/convert.cgi.

We went over to Canada to see some family, then headed over to the Windsor casino. Erin cashed in a US $20 and got $21CDN. LOL. I remember you could cash in a US buck and get almost $2 back Canadian.

The Windsor Casino = Bad as hell by the way. Totally remodeled, non-smoking, nice, and the seafood buffet rocked!!

yep back in 2001 I know the exchange rate was 1 to 1.66 not it's dam near equal. I quit hitting Canada all the time for this exact reason. Shit is not cheap over there so why bother.

2) We stayed till after the clubs closed.

Diesel don’t lie when you guys walked into the club the music stopped and all the young chicks were running because they thought you were daddy. The place must have looked like it was getting raided………by a bunch of old pedafilers. LOL.

Where did you go Don Cherry's (sp), or the famous Metro Music cafe?

Well, I'd have let some of them call me whatever they wanted too.

We hit up the boom boom room, then decided to venture over to Leopards lounge. It was fun. There were a tense moments but, all in all it was a good time.
