Anyone aware of a patio with TV's? I'm trying to take my father out Saturday to watch a EURO game, and still prefers the patio over inside

Pretty sure Yates St Taphouse’s front patio has a bunch of TVs.

2020:


The usual price for this gastronomic disaster is $67, a nod to 1967, the last year the Toronto Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup.

But because managing partner Ken Whitaker is feeling good these days — his Montreal Canadiens remain in the playoffs while the Leafs have been chased to the golf course, just as God, or at least Guy Lafleur, intended — you can order this appropriately overpriced mess for half the usual cost.

And then this week the menu item has “resurfaced”. Dozens of news outlets all across the country and beyond have it.

This speakeasy in Victoria asks hopeful visitors to make a literary choice to enter

 

Artemis Whiskey Bar boasts a collection of 200 different whiskeys

 

https://www.cbc.ca/n...y-bar-1.6583558

 

 

 

 

"Speakeasies are about having that unique element," Patel said.

 

Just like the book shelves by the entrance.

 

"Unless you pick the correct book, you're not allowed in," he said.

 

"There have been several instances where people [said] 'I don't wanna pick a book' and then they just leave and we let them leave because we are trying to create that secrecy and trying to create that experience where you've got to pick the right book. We are very unique.

 

"The business has its own personality."

FFS.

 

I walked by this place the other day. I didn't know what the books were all about at the entrance, and the place looked closed. So we kept walking.

 

Sort of a #fail, I guess? Secrecy and history go well together.

A big huge nope. Drinking at home is way easier. But I'm also way past hipster age.

I don’t know how they can have 200 whiskeys. Something doesn’t add up.

The pick-a-book speakeasy sounds like a cool idea.  I'll have to check it out, though with my luck I'll guess the wrong book. :)
