As Stampede time arrives and tourist start stampeding into our city I thought it would be fun to generate a list of local eateries that tourist should check-out.

Another criteria is that they or the building have to be part of shaping Calgary's unique culture past and present.
Finally there had to be a fun story associated with them.
