Toronto Beer Week!

It’s Toronto (First Ever) Beer Week!  (Sept 20 – 26) To commemorate the occasion (and because we’re celebrating a birthday) we’re going to The Cloak & Dagger (394 College Street)  for, what else?  Beers..and possibly Beersshhh…by the end of the evening. Check out the other venues for Toronto’s FIRST Beer Week!

LOCAL FEATURE: The Blake House

Location: 449 Jarvis St  Toronto http://www.theblakehouse.ca Open only three months, one of the last standing heritage structures (built in 1891) in Toronto  has been converted into a restaurant called The Blake House (previously, The Red Lion). One of the three owners and brothers, Jim Vasilakakos sat down and chatted with us as well.  He described … Continue reading

Mill Street Brewery

Location: 55 Mill Street, Toronto http://www.millstreetbrewery.com For beerfests and the like, Mill Street Brewery has the capacity for the people and the beers. Check out their Ontario‘s first “Original Organic Lager” for a light and hoppy flavour. I’m now more interested in their new Lemon Tea Beer and this contest they’re having.

Overdraught Irish Pub

Location: 156 Front St W., Toronto Overdraught is what I like to consider a hidden gem of an Irish pub, situated underground right between Joe Badali’s and Canyon Creek Chophouse. Here you can find all the usual pub details: dark corners, cheery folk and most importantly, GUINNESS. The fish n’ chips and wings are just bonuses. … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Stirling, Scotland, No. 2 Baker Street

Location: 2 Baker Street, Stirling As far as pubs go, No. 2 Baker Street (yes, sounding very much like a popular 80s TV show) is the No. 1 place to go.  A local favourite, it serves up my favourite beer Guinness, and serves it EXTRA COLD. They don’t serve food at the pub, but bags … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Mr. B’s Bistro, N’awlins

Location: 201 Royal Street, New Orleans, LA http://www.mrbsbistro.com So, this is another one of those overdue/back-burner pieces. Better late than never, right? Located in the French Quarter, and coming highly recommended from many a source on the world wide web, my first impression of Mr. B’s was that it seemed more suited towards a 40+ … Continue reading

Frugal Fare #6: The Banknote

Location: 663 King Street West, Toronto The Banknote is one of those work-lunch and after-work dinner/drinks places serving up burger & beer type meals in a bank setting.  Yes, aptly named The Banknote, as it used to a bank, they still have the ol’ vault in the back and teller booths.  If that ambiance doesn’t suit you, there’s always their cosy patio on … Continue reading

O&B Canteen NOW OPEN + O&B Cafe, Oakville

Locations: O&B Canteen: 330 King St. West, TIFF Bell Lightbox, Toronto O&B Cafe & Grill: 240 Leighland Avenue #235, Oakville The new TIFF building’s restaurant is now open – here’s their menu online. It seems to always be packed in there and one day I will try it. Not too long ago, we dined at … Continue reading
