The way people present themselves publicly has been trending toward informality for a very long time (at least a century) and is pretty consistent across all of Western society. It used to be unthinkable for a man to walk around outside without a hat. Formal dress codes have hung around in certain work places and a few esoteric leisure places (golf clubs, the odd restaurant, etc.), but they are disappearing quickly.I guess what I am referring to are night clubs in the traditional sense. Yes there are lots of bars and pubs that turn into a dance hall or club later at night, but whatever happened to all the high end night clubs (Mynt)? I remember that there used to be lots of night clubs that had strict dress codes (dress shoes for guys, collared shirt, no hats or hoodies, etc). I kind of feel that society as a whole has really regressed in terms of how people present themselves in public. I mean nothing wrong with comfy hoodies, but it would be nice if people still dressed up once in a while when going out. I would love for a revival of the "dinner club" scene that existed in the 50's and 60's like is seen in Goodfellas (everyone wears a suit/dress, classy entertainment and dinner).
This was somewhat done in a provincial bill.Legalize public drinking so Calgary will be known as the place to party!
How many vehicle lanes are going to be on the bridge? Isn't 9th Ave only one lane in either direction I don't remember... I'm pretty sure it's one lane going east for sure.
Ewwwww, this looks like something you'd see in Del Boca Vista in the 80s.
Nice focus on a niche market. Pretty cool to see attempts to cater to Japanese visitors.The Downtown Regency Inn and Suites has been bought by Coastal Hotels/ APA and is getting a makeover, hopefully they can give the exterior a bit of a facelift too.
The Regency Suites Hotel will be rebranded as the Coast Calgary Downtown Hotel & Suites by APA, following an acquisition by the chain.dailyhive.com
