One-Month Abstinence 6

Over the last couple weeks, I’ve been drinking a bit too frequently with my vacation and other things that have been going on. I decided today that I’m going to challenge myself to abstain from alcohol for an entire month. Normally after a hard day of work I’ll have a beer at night. This challenge ...

Welcome to the Jungle 3

We took my sister out to her favourite club last night. It might just be the last club in the world that plays Motley Crew, Bon Jovi, Guns & Roses, AC/DC and Deep Purple. I’m not denying that other clubs play this music, but who’s really going to show up to head bang to 80′s ...

Clubbing Cabbie

On Saturday night Han and I were in a cab after the 311 and Rebel Emergency concert, and we were fortunate to be taxied by a very unique and entertaining cab driver. He was probably somewhere in his forties, slightly chubby and appeared to be of East Indian descent. The music he was playing in ...

One in a million 1

Last night we saw Panic and the Rebel Emergency open for 54-40 at Lee’s Palace. When cousin Tony (He’s not really my cousin, we just call him that) was getting dressed to go out last night, I doubt he had any idea that somebody else at the club would be wearing the exact same shirt ...

Party Cougs 2

My buddy Mike and I went to an Irish Pub with a patio for lunch today on account of the beautiful weather. As a result of the beautiful weather, there wasn’t any seating available on the patio and there was a 30-40 minute wait to get a seat. So on account of 2 ladies looking ...

The Shmooze dilema: Dignity vs. $2 Martinis 4

In February, I posted an article entitled Club Bouncer Egos. Well the club I was referring to is an after work bar in Toronto called Shmooze. A girl I know through a friend had a bad experience at this same club and shared her experience by writing an article to a Toronto Newspaper (The Metro). ...

My Last Words 6

As everyone is already aware, the Pope has passed away this weekend. According to an account published in an Italian Newspaper, the Pope’s last word was “amen“. After reading this, I wondered what my last words would be, so I put together a top 5 list. Vote for your favourite. 1. F#ckin A 2. Latez ...

Club Bouncer Egos

My friends and I occasionally go out to a bar after work on Fridays. There are 2 bars that we usually frequent because the ‘Happy Hour’ replenishes us with $2 beers until 9PM. The bouncers at the one club are very unfriendly and as of late, have been finding reasons not to let us in. ...

Dirty Dog Saloon

I was at a bar in Hamilton last night called “Dirty Dog Saloon”. It’s a Coyote Ugly type bar where the (female) bartenders dance on top of the bar. They were tossing women’s undergarments into the crowd. Not sure if it was used underwear or not They have a website (Link) where they have profiles ...
