The curving three-piece roof that shelters its entrance makes Finnegan's Pub and Grill easy to spot from afar. Through the doors, wooden banisters lead into expansive rooms filled with massive HDTVs, games, and more than 16 types of draft beer. Plates of hearty sandwiches, pizzas, and signature grass-fed and aged Angus beef steaks grace tabletops inside and, during the warmer months, outside on a large patio. Every Friday and Saturday night, DJs spin tunes and live music echoes through the halls like a drinking song stuck in a canyon; sports games and UFC matches are broadcast throughout the week. The bar shares its property with its sister establishment—Phoenix Lounge—an upscale lounge that hosts vibrant dance parties after nightfall.
Wigley's regales crowds with an eclectic mix of gourmet dishes and contemporary bar fare served alongside an extensive selection of wines and cold beers. Diners can summon edible comfort with the ribs and chicken platter ($18.99), a slow-roasted duet of charbroiled chicken breast and baby-back ribs glowing with the bloom of youth and a barbecue or honey-garlic glaze. Guests with piquant palates can dive into a bowl of spicy Cajun jambalaya abounding with chorizo sausage and succulent prawns ($13.99). Afterward, a frosty pint of beer ($3.99–$6.50) can nurse fiery taste buds and read them a bedtime story. While an army of televisions broadcasts sports games or a live band serenades conga lines, patrons can sidle up to Wigley's bar and fuel up with bar-menu offerings such as calamari ($8.99) and spicy, cheese-covered ranchero chips ($11.99).
Just a few weeks after they first make a splash on the big screen, Hollywood flicks draw gasps, laughter, and sighs from the audiences at Cottonwood 4 Cinemas. The slight delay in the theatre’s roster of films enables movie-goers to catch recent blockbusters at a less expensive cost than the traditional ticket price. In addition to family-friendly movies, comedies, and thrillers, Cottonwood hosts a variety of special events. Screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show invite audiences to participate in the cult classic by dressing up, reciting lines, and bringing props, and a film series presented by the Chilliwack Arts Council treats cinephiles to a lineup of international films. The theatre also welcomes watchers for party packages, including a red-carpet bash where kids invade the concessions area to make popcorn and cotton candy, then force their parents to eat broccoli.
Comfort is key at Knight & Day Restaurant, a mantra evident in the eatery's cuisine, decor, and ambience. Pub favorites––including burgers, seafood platters, wings, and pizzas––emerge from the kitchen to the cozy dining room. Whether seated at plush booths or even at couches surrounding the tables, diners feast their eyes on cherry-wooden wainscoting and columns illuminated by hanging lamps.
