  1. Sounds like a bargain, since hot water and a tea bag would likely cost more than twice that.

    Must be something about Calgary. I hear Moxie's is pretty good too.

    Fried Chicken in Vancouver

    You're joking right? Fried chicken & watermelon? Hey, let's perpetuate some more food stereotypes ... no grits in there? Black eyed peas perhaps? Jeesh. A. ← Wow, I didn't know people were so threatened by Fried Chicken being served with <gasp> watermelon! Please elaborate on just what you find so offensive and why you believe this is stereotypical... ← Coupl'a news links might shed some light on it: Seau says 'watermelon' remark was a joke King's birthday was mocked on campus with chicken and watermelon
  4. I've been haunted ever since I saw this.

    Gill Review of the Week

    I found it less snide than usual. Though her whiny complaint about the mushroom: is par for the course. Now I know the who's part of the demographic that needs the "caution, filling may be hot" warning on McDonald's apple pies.

  7. This statement has me puzzled. You are either saying: a. the quality of their food varies with the makeup of their clientele; or b. your enjoyment of their food varies with their clientele.

    Gill Review of the Week

    Yeah, that's same reason I don't play in the NHL. I choose not to.
  9. Actually, the pay in the Army does not suck at all. A cook in the army (and you'd actually get trained for free) would start as a buck private at $2400 a month. After about 4 years, assuming you were showing promise and got promoted to corporal, you'd be making twice that much. That's $48K per year. With 5 weeks vacation, and a pretty sweet pension to boot. Granted, you don't get to work too often with foie gras and the tuna & cheese you make is actually just tuna & cheese.
  10. You should try their cloth bag. I hear it's not too bad.
  11. a.k.a. "The Anna Nicole Smith Theory".
  12. I foresee Beavertail huts on Robson, poutine trucks staking out street corners, and little carts hawking Inukshuk-shaped maple sugar candy - all in the name of giving visitors that essential taste of Canadiana. I hope they all leave with the departing torch, except for maybe one poutine wagon.
  13. I can see the TV ads right now: [several fast pan shots of happy, gorgeous, smiling people.] Voiceover: "Come for the washrooms. Stay for the food." or maybe: [Wide shot of a sparkling, spacious washroom.] "Hello, Chuck". "Hello, Feenie".

    'Newbie' to Rum

    Dude, of course it's not legal! YOU LIVE IN CANADA! (Actually, it's probably not even legal to mail it from one state to another). 'Cause the tax man always needs his cut of the booze action. If you really want it, the LCBO may be able to order it for you. Or try Buffalo.
