Interesting information, BigFoot owners ( BOCI ) are having their annual rally at the same location in September.

We could do a pub crawl to the "2" places in Osoyoos that Yelp says are decent for poutine?

Jim, the pickings are mighty slim as you can imagine in the small town. I cruised yelp, urban spoon and tripadvisor.

Convivia Bistro seems to be a frontrunner -- even if they use waffle fries ( )

The Sage Pub at least lists poutine, and it is in walking distance of the rally if there is a shortcut over that-a-way (lakeshore). Sage Pub

Smittys (think Dennys) has it on their national menu but they use a three cheese blend.

The other pubs and other establishments don't list it on their menus as a regular feature. I'll be in town that whole week, so will have to maybe do some reconnoitring of the poutine offerings.

Used Google Maps and it found Sage Pub, but not where I expected. The pub Google Maps found is mostly a beer and wine shop. Haven't been to it in years ( once was enough ), if it's the same place.

Yup, it is.

The Pub part looks to be around the left side of the building in your picture Glenn. The menu doesn't look bad either. Sage Pub

Got it. Looks like a total reno from when I visited for lunch years ago.
There are two other pubs in Osoyoos that I'd go to first. One overlooks town centre and the other overlooks the lake.

Found them. It appears that the Ridge brew pub is CLOSED. Don't know when that happened. Urban Spoon seems to like the Sage a lot so maybe they reno'd more than the bar.
