Rolla is tiny hamlet about 15 km from Dawson Creek. A cosy community, it is home to the famous -- or infamous -- Rolla Pub.
It doesn't look like much when you drive up -- just a run-down square box of a building with a sign out front. But open the door and suddenly you know you are no longer in Kansas, Dorothy!
The walls of the Rolla Pub -- heck every available square inch -- is covered with photographs, plaques, pictures, pennants, knick knacks, and more. It's an explosion of kitsch.
Check out the photos on the wall. They're of local families, their kids and friends. Trophies and plaques commemorate events and accomplishments that you would expect to see in someone's living room. In fact, the Rolla Pub feels like someone's living room -- a cosy, cluttered, well-loved living room.
Service at the pub is warm and friendly and before long, folks at the next table are chatting us up. The beer is cold and the company warm which makes for a great combo!
