For a town as quirky as Dawson City, their taste in mixed drinks is just…weird! Rebecca Palsha and Hank Davis stop in at the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City to see what the “source cocktail” is all about. The cocktail is a straight shot of hard liquor, the classic mix of Yukon Jack,” says the “toe master” Terry Lee. “The sour toe portion is a severed human toe.” It’s not for the faint of heart, but it does give them bragging rights. “Hank Davis and Rebecca Palsha have successfully entered into the elite SourToe Cocktail Club at last!” says Hank Davis.
Channel 2’s Rebecca Palsha and Hank Davis arrived in Chicken (full-time population: 7) just in time to see the start of the annual Chickenstock music festival. The town, so the story goes, got its name after the founders realized they didn’t know the proper way to spell “Ptarmigan” and so opted for a more phonetically-transcribable avian substitute. Among the strange traditions that take place in Chicken during the weekend of the festival is the “panty cannon,” which blows up women’s underwear, and a clear delineation of neighborhoods that divides the few residents between their “downtown,” “uptown” and “suburbia.” During Chicken stock, the town sees it’s population rocket up to 1200. “We’ve never had any problems with this festival,” says one of the locals, “It’s really nice, it’s really family-friendly, it’s a good time.”

It keeps going, but it feels like it,” said Moira Sauer, “and the people are a bit weird. Winter time is the best.”
