You won't find a nicer locality although the winters may not be for the weak of heart (I can't really say since I haven't there through one).  Jangles is the local pub/restaurant and it's up to anyone's snuff..   The folks in the HP department have quality and the workers are excellent rad workers...    The containments there are heavy with tritium so the dress out is a NASA experience...   It's been a few years though since I've been there and would enjoy going back if circumstances ever presented itself...  ... hope someone else puts in some info...   would enjoy hearing how it's doing..

Port Elgin's best hangout was Jangles.  Family dining, beer and plenty of conversation with the locals if you're so inclined.

Beings that I live and work here I might as well pass on the info on the local establishments:

1)  Kincardine area:  Bruce Bar and Grill (highly recommended for good food and atmosphere), Gilley's Feedlot, and The Hogs Breath Bar are all good places to go.

2)  Port Elgin area:  The Queens Bar and Resturaunt and Strauser's Olde Towne Tavern are top of the list.

There are numerous other taverns, bars, and eateries I have only listed the ones I have frequented.  Should you find yourself in the area drop me an email for more information.  Also, if you don't like snow don't come here from Nov-Mar ;D

I was at the Bruce in Oct/Nov 99 as part of a British/Canadian/Swedish team doing a beta/gamma survey of the protected area around A and B.

Loves my 5 weeks there. Met lots of great people, and had a laugh. Eat alot in Gilley's, was the first place I tasted escargot!

Hi to anyone from the Bruce that remebers any of us Brits with the groundhog!

Lots of action on the Nuke front here at the Bruce and elsewhere in Ontario.  They are continuing with the restart of 2 reactors at Bruce A, looking at refurbishment of the other 2 reactors at Bruce A, and looking at new build here and OPG is looking for new build at the Darlington site.  If you are coming here and looking for lodging plan ahead!! Can get kind of spendy now as there is somewhat of a shortage of housing.
