History Over Pints

As part of the celebrations, WindsorEats will be hosting a History Over Pints walking tour on Saturday, January 18, 2014. Fear not, the weather gets up to a balmy 5 degrees Celsius on Saturday, allowing us to walk our way through one of the oldest European settlements in Canada while being told its stories of years gone by. You’ll hear tales and folklore of Chief Tecumseh, learn all about the man who essentially formed Canada as we know it today, the badass that was General Brock, and more.

Oh ya, did we mention we’ll be stopping for pints at local establishments? Tickets can be purchased in the WindsorEats shop.
