Ok, let's try and fix some of the misinformation.

It's the Takhini Hot springs, head a few km up the North Klondike highway and you'll find the turnoff.

Georgio's is pretty good! Also, there is some place down on main i think that has ribs, steak and salmon that a damn good.. or so I hear...

I think I've heard that the edgewater has some good eats.. ..? Dunno about that tho
Yes Georgio's is good. The other place you're talking about is the Klondike Rib and Salmon bbq on the corner of 4th and Steele. It's awesome food but it's only open for the summer so i doubt that it's open yet.

Joe's free pour is no more, and the cat under the glass at the Capital is no longer there.

There is VERY little going on in Faro.

Yeah the Canada Games Centre is top notch. Gold Rush does indeed often have some good blues. The Mexican Restaurant is called Sanchez Cantina. It's authentic mexican, very tasty. There's also Sam and Andy's if you want a more tex mex style.

Is it to late in the season to go Dog Sledding?
Be sure to drive up Grey Mountain and hike the canyon.
There's two Tim Hortons, two Starbucks... but my favorite coffee shop is Baked Cafe at corner of 1st and Main. If it's nice out you can sit out front and get the mid day sun. Too late for dog sledding and skiing unless you are geared up for back country. Canyon on Grey Mountain?

Close, but the name actually came from the Whitehorse rapids which were below miles canyon. The hydo damn wiped out most of them though.

Definitely check out the Transportation museum if you can, but it is closed to the public in the winter too.

The drive to Braeburn Lodge is worth doing once. They claim the worlds largest cinamon buns. I think they are up to $8 a piece now. It's about 1 hour north of town and would tie in good with a hot springs trip.
Or, you could rent a sled and hit the hills with some of us locals. But, then you wouldn't want to leave. :D

If you go sledding with Fatass, bring some extra gas so he can't pull that "oh, we're out of gas and only have one sleepingbag routeen." :lol:

Could always do a trip to Dawson!! It's worth seeing. Don't know why I didn't think of that sooner.

Kind of a lot to cram into 3 days, though.

Well from the knowledge he seems to have about the place it might be a worthwhile investment. However, if he's (she?) with AirNorth, let him pay....I hear they make a fortune there... :-)

Dawson is a great trip, but is anything open yet at this time of year?

Yup - Dawson is worth seeing regardless, though.
