FIFA Women's World Cup in Winnipeg - FAQs

I've noticed a lot of repeat questions being asked recently from visitors who are coming to Winnipeg for the FIFA Women's World Cup (June 8-16). Here are the most common questions: I can add to this if anyone has any suggestions.
Where is the stadium?
Investor's Group Field is at the University of Manitoba on the south end of the city.
Where should I stay?
There've been several news stories about how all the hotels in Winnipeg - even the Alt Hotel, which just opened - are booked solid. Sorry.
However, you can try alternatives:
(With suggestions from majikmonkie).
How do I get to the stadium from my hotel?
FIFA put together a guide on transportation options. The first two options are for driving, but I would recommend NOT doing that, especially if you're driving there during afternoon rush hour. Pembina Highway (which is the main route to the stadium from downtown) will probably become a parking lot in the afternoon with all the additional traffic.
However, there are four Park-n-Ride locations:
The Park-n-Ride costs $5 for people over the age of 12. Buses start departing 2 hours before afternoon kickoff. You might want to make a point of catching one of the first couple buses, since Pembina Highway is going to be a nightmare.
A note from werno - DO NOT try parking on the residential streets around the stadium. You will be ticketed and possibly towed.
Beaver Bus and Greyhound will also be operating a downtown hotel shuttle (also $5). Buses start departing 2 hours before afternoon kickoff. You might want to make a point of catching one of the first couple buses, since Pembina Highway is going to be a nightmare. If you're staying downtown, look for a shuttle stop (white circles) near your hotel:
(With suggestions from majikmonkie).
In not-stadium-specific transit news: Downtown Biz is going to be offering a free trolly to get around downtown. Winnipeg Transit also has free buses that will get you around downtown; #1,2, and 3 are all free all the time. (Thanks to supercantaloupe for the addition.)
I'm coming in from [country]. Do I have to get my money exchanged or will establishments take my US dollars/pounds/pesos/bits?
If you're using your credit card, most places will take a Visa and Mastercard regardless of country of origin. Most credit cards will give you a pretty fair exchange rate. However, you might still want cash for small purchases, bus fares, parking, etc.
Some places might take US dollars, but it will either be at par (which would be a horrible deal for you) or at an unfavourable exchange rate. It's probably a good idea to get your cash exchanged if you plan on carrying cash.
Also, plan on getting handfuls of change back when you pay. Canada has coins for $2 and $1, so after a few transactions you've got a handful of big coins to carry around. Also also, Canada no longer uses the penny, so all cash transactions will be rounded up or down to the nearest $0.05. Debit and credit transactions are still charged to the penny.
(With suggestions from Becau5eRea5on5, kent_eh and tmlrule).
How do I drive to Winnipeg from the US?
(Info via scopar). There are several border crossings between Manitoba and the US, with 3 crossings from Minnesota and 11 from North Dakota. However, all of the border crossings a very small except for the Emerson, MB/Pembina, ND crossing that is at the end of the I-29. This crossing has multiple lanes and is open 24 hours a day. The other border crossings are usually single lanes and have limited hours of operations. You can find information on the border crossings from North Dakota and Minnesota .
US citizens need proof of citizenship to enter Canada: a passport, birth certificate, or citizenship certificate. A passport will make your crossing the least stressful, and will probably make getting back into the US easier as well. The CBSA has information on identification requirements on their website . If you have a criminal record, you may have trouble at the border. This includes a DUI, which will probably prevent you from entering Canada. The US/Canada share access to criminal record databases so they will look it up.
Don't bring firearms or ammo with you. Canada has very different and more restrictive gun laws than the US. There is no constitutional right to bear arms in Canada, so please leave them at home. The CBSA link above has a information on prohibited items. There are also limits on the amount of booze/cigarettes you can bring with you. When crossing the border (both ways), it's always best to be upfront and don't hide anything. If they discover you lied about something, you're more likely to be pulled over and searched. I'd highly suggest doing a search of your car before you hit the road to make sure you don't leave anything unwanted in there.
Where can I get a drink?
(Info via landlubber1976). Legal drinking age is 18. Drinking in public (i.e. outside a restaurant, hotel or private home) isn't recommended and is illegal. We're not Europe. You probably won't get too much hassle, but it might cause someone to call the police on you. Don't drink and drive, please.
Alcohol generally more expensive than the US, by a fair bit.
Most restaurants will be licensed, and some may allow you to bring your own bottle of wine, but unless that bottle means something special to you, it probably isn't worth it after they apply their corkage fee. You can order a bottle of wine with dinner and you can take what you didn't finish home with you. Just make sure it is in the trunk if you're in a car, or at least not accessible.
Is there an official FIFA FanFest in Winnipeg?
Here's the lowdown (thanks to scopar for the info):
Winnipeg Fan Zone
What: Open to the public (free) on June 6 (with a viewing party of Canada’s opening match). Open to FIFA Women’s World Cup™ Winnipeg Stadium ticket-holders on matchdays only.
Where: Winnipeg Stadium (Investors Group Field)
Hours of Operation
What else should we do while we're in Winnipeg?
Well, there's lots to do. Special things happening while you're here:
Anyway, welcome to Winnipeg!

My weekend trip, buying a motorcycle in -40 degrees celcius and driving it back on a trailer for 14 hours.

It all started with looking at new bikes about 1 year ago... I wanted a z800... I wanted a z900, I wanted a versys... in the end I always thought the bike I wanted was lacking.
Finally... I decided to go back to my dream bike. I upgraded my ninja 650r and went a step further. I noticed a very low price of 8000 dollars for a 2014 Ninja 1000 ABS about 1300 KM(850 miles~) away from where I live. I currently live in Manitoba(Winnipeg), the bike was in Alberta(Calgary).
I made a phone call quite worried that this was too good to be true. I got a carfax for the bike... I asked a MILLION questions. The guy said in a thick accent that he was 65 and that the bike didn't have a scratch on it. It had 4000KM on the bike... I thought out so many ways of bringing that bike back... Do I drive i back in the spring? Do I drive there, pay the man then ship it via truck... I finally remembered that my Dad had a trailer. So, another piece of the puzzle fell into place.
I called the guy up. Tried to get him to lower the price by about 200 dollars. The guy didn't budge... O well, can't blame me for trying. I tell him I'd be there in 2 weeks to cash out some investments.
Finally, the money was in my account. I call up my dad who is retired and ask him "Want to drive to Calgary?", my dad is awesome btw, he doesn't ride but understands how important this hobby and lifestyle is to me. He agrees. I book a day off on Friday the 13th of January... We shovel out the trailer... we look up videos on how to tie down a motorcycle on a trailer. And the plan is in motion. The next day I wake up at 8:00am and get the trailer hooked up, we drive to the bank I get a certified cheque for 7700 and 300 dollars cash in case I can bargain.
At 10:30, we leave, pass multiple cities and after 14 hours of driving/stopping, we get to a hotel in Calgary. We booked a hotel near a casino to see if I could "win" my bike with a 20 dollar bill (I work for a casino company... I know better)... But we're so dead tires we just go straight to bed as we know there's another long day ahead of us. We get there at about 1:00am.
7:30 am, we go meet the guy. This guy... is freaking awesome. He owns both a ninja 1000 and a R1. He's actually 65, selling them to get a cruiser Yamaha bike. I get to the bike, it's literally wrapped in 2 big bed sheets and covered by a motorcycle cover. I look at the bike, and can't notice a scratch... not even a bug on the radiator! He's cursing away at people trying to low ball him, says he'd burn the bike rather then to sell it for 100 dollars cheaper. We chat and chat, he gives me a "don't kill yourself" speech. I've never had more respect for a 65 year old guy. Not only that, he's a mechanic. Oh, I forget to add that he's throwing in genuine products... a tank bag, 2 spare windshield, the tarp, fender eliminator already installed.
This is a no brainer, I buy the bike. This being the first time strapping a bike to a trailer not really designed for bikes... Were struggling but no worries. The guy helps us. To give you an idea about this guy... he asks if I'm cold... I reply no... and he goes to tell me that the bike is cold and that I should put 2 blankets on it! He gives me the blankets he had to wrap it.
Anyways, we say our goodbyes and go on our way. Now, I made an error with strapping down the bike... I strapped it with the motorcycle cover and blankets to protect it from anything. Well the tarp ripped 1.5 hours into the ride. So we took it off. (See pictures)
Left at 9 am and got home at 1:30 am. And here we are, I'm finally home and I've got this bike... this amazing bike I can't fucking drive. And I'm not counting down the days until spring.
TLDR: Bought a 2014 ninja 1000 abs from a 65 year old guy and I have no regrets. I drove 14 hours away to pick up a bike without ever having strapped a bike before. I can't be happier and counting down the days until spring.
