February has been a great month for getting cozy on the couch and watching some television…especially when the Winter Olympics were on! While I was in Bayfield staying at the Little Inn during the Family Day long weekend, I headed down the street to watch the Canada vs. Finland hockey game in the pub at The Albion Hotel.

Not surprisingly, there were lots of hockey fans cheering on the Canadian team, and servers were even dressed in red and white jerseys. It was a sunny winter’s day, so of course there were lots of snowmobilers stopped there too. Every Tuesday, they have great specials and prizes for snowmobilers, which includes $2 tacos or sliders and chili dogs for $5.95!

The Albion has huge murals painted on the walls along with some displays of sports memorabilia. The interior looked different from the last time I was last there, but I love how the decor provides a relaxed and cozy vibe.

Olympic fever has hit the Albion!

For those that enjoy fish and chips, when I went they had a $12 two-piece fish and chips special. I enjoyed the “Nachos Supreme” and a beverage, which definitely hit the spot!

The Albion has a great atmosphere for watching sports, especially the Olympics. You can see how proud everyone is of the Canadian team when the pub erupts with cheers. Go Canada Go!
