They’re getting real close at Pourhouse on Water Street. Menu tasting for staff went down today and the room is booked for a wine tasting on Tuesday. We’re crossing our fingers for the weekend without getting our hopes up.

    The name is “Pourhouse?” Really??? As the province poises to make it a crime to be homeless just in time for Olympic revelry is this name at all appropriate? Sometimes tongue-in-cheek = foot-in-mouth.

    The place is looking great, can’t wait to see it in action, although I might have to challenge Jay on the Shaving award!
