No, there's no TV at our place, no cable whatsoever and so the Internet is KING. Come 8 pm onwards after a hearty meal, we'll settle down to watch the news - http://www.cbc.ca/ns/ (yup, brought to us by CBC Nova Scotia, though slightly delayed. Just click on the link 'Latest News'. Not so sure if anyone outside of Canada can view it. Pls do try and let us know.)
Today's local news featured Midtown Tavern and Grill (1684 Grafton Street). Appearently, quite a popular eating place for the locals here which has been serving fine dishes and beer since 1940s. Its a shame claims most of the patrons. Why? Such a great place has to close down to make way for development (I suppose that's a trend anywhere in any big or developing cities). '
With a rustic feel and somewhat modest decor as shown from the news, its seems to portray itself as an interesting place to go for anybody who wants a taste of what the locals would call, "real food". No wonder, we haven't seen it own any magazines or tourist brochures. And so, the clock is ticking for us now (T-2 weeks and counting), to plan and head off to Grafton Street)
Some of the things we'd like to try if we have a stomach capacity of an ox or a bull, would be
- Roast Beef
- or Keith's beer (which is famous here in North America. keith's draught or keith's red draught)
