There seems to be no market for anything of anything in Winnipeg. There's very few strip clubs, massage parlours, anything sexually related.
Now mind you, I wasn't here for anything sexually related. I was born in Winnipeg & came to Vancouver when I was four, so it was a homecoming of sorts for me.
Winnipeg is a much friendlier place than Vancouver. Everyone I met & chatted with was ultra-helpful & very accomodating.
The drinking age is 18.If you go to bars & clubs, you'll really notice the difference. It made me feel uncomfortable to hit up on the locals knowing that some of them are definitely out of my 1/2 my age plus 7 range. The liquor is very cheap though & same goes for cover charges. The surprising thing is that they have either free-standing or hand-held metal detectors. I felt like I was going into a prison when I walked in!
As for the dangerous areas of town, I was told to avoid the north area of Winnipeg as it has a high concentration of SWs/drug abuse & such. Sounds just like Hastings & Main, but I'm pretty sure I passed by it & it's 10 times less dangerous than Vancouver is.
You do need a car to get around though because Winnipeg is very spread out.
However, all in all if you want to pick up a women/girl, it's much easier to pick up in Winnipeg than Vancouver...MUCH easier
ya know what ahm sayin? - boiiii-eeee?! eh?!
