This is not so much a bar hop as a bar marathon that runs (get it?) the entire length of Canada. If you have the stamina, so do we.

Well the journey is finally over. You’ve made it across the Canadian Rockies and the prairie plains to the rugged east coast. At the Sheraton Hotel Newfoundland's bivver Lounge in St John's, we don't know whether it’s because Halloween’s just past or because of the current chill in the air but bivver makes us shiver (we just couldn’t resist).

Clever puns aside, in actual fact "bivver" is an expression that those from Newfoundland, or “The Rock,” use that means to shiver, shake, or tremble with the cold, so if you want to stop bivvering, you only have to step inside the elegant, contemporary bivver Lounge (it is killing us to lowercase bivver, btw) to warm up with a shot of Screech, a rum-based bevvie bottled on the island. (If you’ve never been to a Screech-in, make sure you do when you’re in town. Then you, too, can be an honorary Newfoundlander – number 12 on that bucket list, are we right?)
