Good Lord, I found this question on a Carleton Place subreddit in a  “Controversial” topic today. Yes boys and girls, I am everywhere, you can’t hide, I will eventually find you.:)


Of course it was right under the question: Is there anywhere in town to get custom zippo lighters? 

The title of the post was:

Does Anyone still have Fun at the Moose in Carleton Place?

The shocking comments made by anonymous posters behind a computer screen were:

1.Or is it just kids %%%&^%$ in the tiny ass bathroom & cougars waiting outside for them like tabby cats in heat?

2.Cause last time I was there… made me want to blow my brains out. WTF happened to the good old’e Moose 😦

3.Depends on the time you go in. I’m in there for lunch at least once a week, and fairly often around 5ish, never have any problems.

What are you talking about??? That sounds like an awesome time!!! After all it’s not your average watering hole.

Welcome to the jungle Carleton Place!
