Burgers on the Grill

As you hopefully remember, it was Mother’s Day on the weekend just gone. To be precise, it was on Sunday. I had made reservations at one of our favourite local eateries (not A&W this time!) but, seeing as the weather was hot and sunny and we had just got our backyard pool set up, we […]

My first impression is WOW. So much sunshine can now pour onto Front Street. Of course I also […]

Big Smoke Burgers SFU

Yesterday afternoon I took my little bears up to SFU for a walk about and a burger at the SFU location of Big Smoke Burgers and I’m sad to say, while the walk about was fun, we were not impressed with the burgers. First off, perhaps I am getting to be a grumpy old man […]

Parkside Brewing and New Restaurants in the Burbs

There are a bunch of new places that have recently opened in the burbs and I need to get to and try out! Port Moody has become a “go-to” location for craft beer. Parkside Brewing will be the fourth brewery on the strip along Rocky Point and they will be opening up on June 8th-ish. […]
