“The Black Dog is my favourite place for a pint of beer in all of Edmonton. Open from 2PM to 2AM every day of the week, it is home to the most interesting cross-section of patrons one could imagine. The bar tenders are all friendly, honest, and great conversationalists. As a bonus, you can almost always get a pint of beer for $4, and on Sundays, Big Rock pints are only $3.75, which make them the same price as when I was an undergrad! Highly recommended.” – Sandy Cooper
