John B. Pub - Egg-cellent Burger

John B. Pub

AngryRussian had been dying to take me to John B. Pub, a place he’s been going to for years, and one night we finally had the chance. John B is a casual pub restaurant in Coquitlam with an attached liquor store.  It is super roomy with plenty of tvs to watch the games from.  There’s […]

Pumphouse Taproom

After a raving review from The Awkward Diner about Pumphouse Taproom, especially that they have a huge beer list (and a yummy fruity one to boot), I enlisted Six to accompany me to Richmond for a taste. The place has a full-on pub vibe for sure.  In fact, when we visited, it was ALL men […]

Karl Strauss Brewery – Sorrento Valley, San Diego

After a week of Latin festivities…back to our regular programming!  Specifically…my coverage of San Diego! San Diego is full of local craft breweries, and on the third night, I was taken to one of these – the Karl Strauss Brewery in Sorrento Valley. Karl Strauss Brewery actually has a few different locations.  This particular one […]

Irish Heather

Woohoo!!! Mr. ESL is getting married!!! To commemorate his last days as a bachelor Ms. Awkward Diner organized a fantastical and super fun stag for him. It all started with dinner at The Irish Heather. Or was it the Salty Tongue??  I say this because although we had reservations at The Irish Heather, we were […]

Fanny Bay Inn

Over the May long weekend Hitman and I went to the island for a mini vacation.  He’s lived his childhood here so he was a great tour guide, showing me his childhood hangouts and whatnot, and telling me all about the shenanigans he’s caused with his friends back then ;P Along the way to his […]

Wings Pub & Grill on Kingsway

L and I felt like wings and beer after a swim.  Actually, we went swimming just so we can have wings and beer afterwards.  She lives really close to Wings, and her place has a pool, 1+1=2! We didn’t realize it was the first night of the restart of UFC though, so basically when we […]

The King’s Head Pub

The King’s Head Pub really isn’t a place I would’ve chosen to go to, based on how it looks.  It looks really dingy and dark and dirty.  However the reviews mostly seem to be good, citing good food, good drinks, good atmosphere.  Plus, the new friend that I made suggested we go there as it’s […]

Bobby G’s Pub

Update: This restaurant has closed. Wendy and I finally ordered the Entertainment Book. We love to wait when the book drops down under $20 to pick it up. The book fully redeems itself in a meal or two. Tonight, we decided to go somewhere we haven’t been before. In search of this, we located Bobby […]

Boston Pizza – ‘Italy for Little-y’

Wendy and I really wanted to try the Milestone’s promotion of “Couple’s Night’ last Wednesday.  But because I get off work at 8PM and could make it back into Richmond by 8:30PM, it was too late.  The waiting list was quite long and they stopped taking names.   So, we walked over to Boston Pizza to […]

Original Joe’s Cambie

Today was Cambie street’s All-Access party…I think it’s to celebrate the reopening of Cambie Street.  However, it doesn’t seem like it actually IS reopened…since construction was going on. A bunch of coworkers and I went to join the party after work.  Honestly, it wasn’t much of a party.  However, we went to Original Joe’s for […]
