What's the name of your bar?

Since we usually stop in at odd times of the day...

Well actually we come by when there is very little going on. The crowd is low, and most likely full of regulars. This is the best time to grab a beer, check out the pits around and actually listen in on the local gossip.

Well we did just this but we had to dare ourselves to go in. The place looked like a house with a neon bar sign in the window. Right on main street, with double doors and new siding.

The bar was awesome as it was old, wood and hand crafted. Well lit and actually had charm that made you feel at home. We sat and admired the atmosphere and the 'old school' quality of this pub/bar.

A crazy kitchen gadget

I love gadgets, I walk through gadget stores all the time. Not a clue on what they are for half the time, or why most were even invented.

A melon baller for example, I have never desired to ball a melon. I am not one for design. I am a good cook but presentation is always lacking with the dishes I serve.

As much as I love gadgets, some shouldn't be in my drawer. You know that drawer? The one with all the gadgets that you might have used twice if it was lucky. A collection of kitchen gadgets, the 'must-haves' that find themselves drawered.

Cheers Sports Bar

Pitstopper rating
561 George Street

Has separate smoking room, many TV's and sticky tables. Not exactly what I look for in a place but it just seemed to fit with the surroundings and mood.

Breakfast Sundae

It takes energy to get ready in the morning to start a new day. Usually on a schedule, mornings may bring on a hectic pace. To pump your body with good energy sources, build yourself a breakfast banana split.

  • Start with a potassium-rich banana splitting lengthwise
  • Spread with peanut butter on the banana
  • Top with calcium-filled yogurt
  • Small hint of chocolate syrup
  • Sprinkle with crunchy low-fat granola
  • and enjoy.
