Like many others, I checked out the PNE with their $1.50 deal on Sunday by wearing red or Canada gear. Here is the most important thing you need to know...
The entire fair ground is now a beer garden.
Yes, you can have an open drink in the outdoor areas in the fair, not Playland. Second pro tip, Happy Hour is from 3pm-5pm. The specials include Molson and House wines for $5, Belgium Moon and Parallel 49th for $5.50. You save $3.00 per drink pretty much.
For food and I didn't have too much of it because $$$. But I tried my first BBQ at the PNE ever at Gator BBQ. I ordered their brisket sandwich with a side of beans and corn bread. I did try some of my friend's pork ribs and they were DELISH!
The second meal I had was unfortunate... I should have known when I didn't see a massive line that this would not be good. Chicken and Waffles. Hard pass on this, keep on walking. I rather have had another bbq sandwich.
