Old Style Pilsner, Sticky Chicken Wings & The Hi-Strung Downers

Let’s chat old style Pilsner, day-drinking beers, chicken wings and the Calgary music scene.

It’s a Tuesday afternoon and we’re meeting Greg Callsen of The Hi-Strung Downers at Swans of Inglewood for meaty wings and ice cold beer. We’re at Swans because the chicken wings are saucy, the beer is cheap, and the waitresses are sassy, no-nonsense, servers.
