And it's everything you'd expect: Guinness and stereotypes for everyone!
No one seems to have decisively laid claim to the intersection that is Main and Terminal. It's not really Main Street proper—there's nowhere near enough plaid for that—and it's not openly considered Olympic Village. There's really just a McDonald's and the SkyTrain station. But now, there's a brand-spanking-new ye olde Irish pub, too. Virtually anyone who's been to Whistler will have been inside the Dubh Linn Gate; dark wood furnishings and Irish knick-knacks provide many a ski bunny with notions of home. Today marks the grand opening of the Dubh's second location, in the no-man's-land at the bottom of Main Street, where many locals are welcoming the new room to the area. Expect a thorough cultural blend of Ireland and Canada—from the half-Irish, half-Canadian beers on tap to the red-brick fireplace (made from bricks found in North Van) and the bar mantel shipped over from the old country.
