Tomahawk

Tomahawk | Legend | A kitschy diner in North Vancouver that was founded in 1926. Most notable for its brunch line-ups and typical colonial appropriation of First Nations cultural imagery. Bryan Adams was a dishwasher there, so there’s that, too.

Usage: “Wait, are you saying that’s there’s no actual thunderbird in the Tomahawk’s Thunderbird Burger?”
