it was an OK place for design. not so sure about the picnic style tables inside.

but it just needs someone that knows what they are doing.

I remember it being very dark inside. With that patio they should be bringing the outside feeling indoors, IMO.

Seems like it's a rebrand with all the same staff (according to their FB post). Opens July 31st.

It must be the old Starbucks because the only other suitable vacant space at Tuscany Village is the small unit in the Original Joe's building that was briefly a frozen yogurt joint.

 

The long-vacant frozen yogurt space has an application in for a pot store, it's directly across from the Papa John's Pizza opening soonish.

Victoria is confirmed to be the Canadian city with the most restaurants, eateries, pubs and bars per person, according to the Destination Greater Victoria.

 

Statistics Canada data shows the city of Victoria to have 4.6 restaurants, eateries, pubs and bars for every 1,000 residents, with Vancouver and Niagara Falls next in line at 3.6 and 3.4, respectively. All other Canadian cities measured have less than 2.8 such businesses per 1,000 residents.

so we have 423 restaurants/bars/pubs?

Technically nothing, semantically it's a dog's breakfast.

You might say a pub has a kitchen and a bar does not. Think of the difference between Irish Times (you'd probably call it a pub) and Big Bad John's (you'd probably call it a bar, a dive bar, even).

But then what about sports bars, is this a case of the exception proving the rule?

Language is weird.

Yeah, makes sense.

As a point of order: View Street Social is more BBJs than BBJs, for the record.

^Big Bad John's used to be a true dive bar a long time ago.  Then it kind of became a parody of itself, and remains so to this day.

Good way to put it! Once it became a tourist attraction, its not a dive bar anymore :).

When did it switch? I don’t ever recall it being a sincere working man’s bar but always a tourism gimmick.

Blue collar.

WTH is a “tavern,” and what is “live entertainment?”

It was literally built and conceived as a tourist attraction gimmick, capitalizing on the Seattle Worlds' Fair.
