I hit the bars last night -- the night life in Guelph is quite vivid in comparison to most small Canadian cities, most likely thanks to the business that the University brings. It's nothing like the insanity of downtown Reykjavik, though. The bars are only allowed to stay open to 3:00 and last calls are at 2:00. The local custom seems to be to stack up on beer just before last calls and then consume vast amounts of alcohol very quickly, with the result you'd expect. This is further support of my theory that strict regulation of alcohol creates an abnormal and unhealthy drinking culture.
