Smoked Meat to Eat, Canada Day is Pat Kiernan’s Thing

Unofficial (but at the same time extremely official) Canadian ambassador to America Pat Kiernan has written a tipsheet for Gothamist about how to celebrate Canada Day today: Eat smoked meat, drink Labatt, skate on ice, drive to the border to look across — be merry. Mr. Kiernan wore a red and white tie on the air this morning in celebration.

Mr. Kiernan also suggests going to Duane Reade to pick up some Delish chocolate chip cookies, “known in Canada as the President’s Choice ‘Decadent’ cookie.” We hear that reading Time magazine and dreaming of distant places is a very Canadian thing to do as well.

A few lucky contest winners will get to retroactively celebrate this day of confederation with Mr. Kiernan over poutine.
