I've been browsing through Patrick O'Flaherty's Come Near At Your Peril: A Visitor's Guide to the Island of Newfoundland.

It's a frikkin' hoot, and packed with good advice. For example, on food:

The general rule is: if you come here with a cholesterol problem, you will be sent home in a casket.

Car Maintenance:

You will probably get a flat tire during your stay here. Do you know how to change a tire? If you don't, learn how to do so.

Nightlife:

You will see. . .squat, barn-like structures , sometimes unpainted, set in a gravel pit and called "lounges." These are taverns; too often, they are foul-smelling places, dark and dismal to be avoided by the sensible visitor who wants to stay out of trouble.

A good read.
