HNT - Getting Wrecked Halifax Style

This past week I was in Halifax for a Campus Stores Canada symposium. We worked hard during the day in the workshops and seminars and educational sessions. Between those, we worked just as hard at networking with colleagues from all over Canada (as well as few from some US campus stores). But in the evening, we kicked back and relaxed and enjoyed the local hospitality. And what better place to get a good sense of a town than in a local pub, listening to a local band?

The first picture is of Rick (one of the text buyers I work with at Mac) and I at the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) Dartmouth Campus location, in front of the windows giving a glorious view of the bay as well as the incoming Hurricane Noel.

The second is one I took at The Lower Deck bar. Seated beside me is Ken from the University of Guelph.
And the third pic is of the band Wreckhouse playing that night at The Lower Deck. Paul Lamb, lead singer is also from the band Crush. Incredible band. Incredibly fun time. Too many pitchers of Keith's were consumed (as you can likely tell from that blurry shot of the band)

Since the photos I took were so crappy, I figured, I'd throw in a clip of Wreckhouse performing at The Lower Deck (this video was from Canada Day, but they did play "Jessie's Girl" on Monday night)

Nothing like winding down after a long busy hard working day right mate?

Looks like you got the relaxing and the beer drinking down!
