Best things to do in Hamilton are the things just outside the actual city. The escarpment means there's some good hikes and mountain biking, particularly up toward Ancaster/Dundas. Waterfalls all over the place. Picked a shitty month for it, although it will probably be nice after a snowfall tomorrow.

Canadian Warplane Museum by the Hamilton Airport is actually pretty cool, if you're into that kind of thing. I know some people from Australia who are pilots and way into planes, and they were dying to go. It's apparently pretty famous among aviation enthusiasts. It has one of two remaining Lancaster bombers in the world that still fly.
Flys pretty much every Saturday and sounds like tank is roaring 10ft above your head.

Anybody that’s been to Kauai have any recommendations? We’re taking a helicopter around to mostly see the “Grand Canyon of Hawaii” and the coast today but still looking to fill out some days.
There's the most westerly bar in the world (apparently it's the closest one to the International Date Line) Their sign reads "Last drink before tomorrow".

You should also try and see the west side of the island from a boat. The cliffs are spectacular.

alright, so I am in Hamilton for a couple days for work. I started with seven hearings in two days, now I'm down to three and may soon be down to two so I will have some extra time to spare.

anything worth seeing / doing / eating?

I am downtown with a car.
You could watch the freedumbers protest Trudeau. I'm told it's like going to the zoo.

One of my co-workers just got back from a week in Cancun. On his last day there, he was sitting at the swim-up bar chatting with a friend when this jarhead MAGA Texan came by and said "Don't tell me. Canadian?" When my co-worker said yes, the guy went into a tirade about how all Canadians are commie pussies and that if they were in Texas right now he'd have both his guns pointed right at him. The guy's wife tried to tell him to lay off and he told her to shut up and pushed her into the pool. Then he and his buddy kept on berating my co-worker and his friend, who tried in vain to tell the guy that they didn't want any trouble, their families were there and to please take it somewhere else. The entire pool was staring at these clowns.

Someone called security. A 5'1", 100lb girl and a guy in his 70's showed up. Unsurprisingly this did not deter the Texans and they began threatening the security people. Finally this idiot's wife got belligerent with him, asked him what the fuck he thought he was doing and got him to leave.

I went to a swingers resort my only time in Cancun. Interesting. "Temptation resort". Although they got a big makeover a couple years back. it was a shithole back then. You could smell syphilis on the walls. Not a fan of the area. Really loved Mayan area.

The fuckers were literally launching fireworks in the streets downtown throughout the night. One misfired and was going off on street level just outside the Sheraton. I could see it all from my hotel room window.

Truck horns, hooting and hollering, whistles, and the odd "Fuck Trudeau" chant.

Weirdly enough, the protest didn't seem to start until like 8 or 9 pm. It also seemed like folks were just driving in circles blaring their car horns for fun.

I was pretty annoyed because I wanted to sleep without truck horns blaring all night. Seems to have calmed down by 11ish, or I just slept through it.
