  • Burgers and Brew - Taste of the Town is Back

    Last night I had the privilege of trying the food at Burgers and Brew for the return of Taste of the Town. Taste of the Town is an annual event where local restaurants highlight locally grown or raised food from around the Peace area.
    Burgers and Brew is one of the eateries offering this experience. We were greeted by the friendly staff and we were able to seat ourselves. The interior of Burgers and Brew offers a warm atmosphere to sit and eat along with have conversation. The sounds of classic rock could be heard through the restaurant enough that you could hear but quite enough you could converse in a normal voice. I enjoyed the ambiance, now on to the food. We ordered the special, it was beef penne pasta with cheese and tomato sauce, It was delicious, The beef was not ground beef, no no it was local beef from right here in the Peace, The pasta was cooked to perfection. The sauce was creamy and cheesy with just enough heat not an over powering heat but just enough to compensate with sweetness of the tomato sauce. The beef was cooked with care and was juicy and spiced right. The whole dish came together and was great. When you are out and about taking in Taste of the Town next week Burgers and Brew should be on your list of place to eat! –Derrick Hand

  • Taste of the Town - Mastaro Sushi

    There are very few things in the world I love more than sushi and ice cream. I never thought I’d come across a restaurant that would satisfy both my love for dynamite rolls and green tea ice cream, but miracles happen. And that little miracle, was found as Mastaro Sushi in Fort St. John. Read More

    My friend Marilyn sent me this video. It's amazing! Read More
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Was Good

    I went to the new Ninja Turtles movie this weekend. Aside from Megan Fox, who was just awful as April O'neil, it was an amazing flick! I ended up being loaded with nostalgia and digging out my copies of the original three movies. Secret of the ooze is still my favorite! However, this tasty jam at the end of the first movie is far superior to Vanilla Ice's Go Ninja. Hey, look over there! Read More
  • And They Were Worried About Metallica's Performance

    Yoko Ono performed at the Glastonbury Music Festival. I recommend you watch the video. It's not good. But it's the kind of train wreck that makes you feel great about yourself! Hilariously a lot of the bands and event goers were expressing displeasure at the fact this festival is headlined by Metallica. They didn't feel they fit the vibe of the festival. Probably because of that whole talent thing they are filled with. I used to think I was the worst singer in the world. But after watching the Yoko Ono performance I'm now 100 percent confident that I'm only the second worst! I could probably have a few drinks and still out karaoke her. I should talk to the festival organizers and see if they want to hire me to perform my sweet rendition of Devil Went Down To Georgia next year. Hey, look over there! Read More
