Silver Point Pub – Wing Night

I’ve been planning small social meet and greets at local businesses. I picked Silver Point Pub in Silver Springs because the employee on the phone was so accommodating when I called to ask about reservations. In the past summer, a volunteer brought me here so he could use the washroom and ask for a glass of… Continue reading Silver Point Pub – Wing Night

Brasserie Kensington – Big Taste 2018

Asian Persuasion, Ay Caramba, Office Dad, Lam Jam and I had the most delicious lunch at Brasserie Kensington. For this post, let's listen to a song I listen to rev me up for work - Bitch Better Have My Money by Rihanna. We tumbled into a packed restaurant. We were seated near the window, which… Continue reading Brasserie Kensington – Big Taste 2018

Murrieta’s West Coast Bar + Grill

My colleague Jo picked Murieta’s for her birthday lunch. For this post, let’s play something I listen to on the way to work to pump myself up for the day - Money, Money, Money by Abba. The restaurant is beautiful. The large skylight filters in ample natural light, setting off the stonewalls. There’s a… Continue reading Murrieta’s West Coast Bar + Grill

Rodney’s Oyster House – Happy Hour

Barbie and I checked out Rodney’s Oyster House for happy hour. The Calgary location is more upscale than Rodney’s locations in Vancouver. Judging from the exterior, I was surprised to find the restaurant was so spacious. I liked the use of white in the decor, the high ceilings and the ‘catch’ of netted lights in… Continue reading Rodney’s Oyster House – Happy Hour

What I like about the tapas menu is we can try so many different items but not feel stuffed. The mini seaweed ($2.50) was a generous quantity for the price. I like… Continue reading Redheads

Jamesons Irish Pub

I had a team meeting at Jamesons in Brentwood. I didn't really want to go on a Friday afternoon but that's not very team-oriented to say to my boss! At this time of the year, things get a little crazy at the office. So let's play some appropriate music... Happy hour entails $5 glasses… Continue reading Jamesons Irish Pub

Cactus Club – Yelp Elite Event

I write reviews on Yelp solely to get invited to their 'elite' parties. Most recently, I attended a Taste of Cactus Club. Holy smokes - their management team (Elim, Jim, Curtis and Kurt) can throw down. We were so spoiled, I felt like a rock star. For this post, I think Guns N' Roses 'Welcome… Continue reading Cactus Club – Yelp Elite Event
