The Bimini Public House (Kitsilano)


I have a buddy who works at The Bimini Public House, so one Sunday evening I went to this Kitsilano pub to check it out.

Alas, the buddy wasn’t working that night, but I stayed and ordered their Sausage plate with a Coke.


You had a choice two sausages with two mustards, and the plate was served with fries and sauerkraut. I picked the Smoked Jalapeno Cheddar and Heritage Beef Banger sausages with the dijon and stone ground mustards.


There were a couple of flatscreens right in front of me – I sat at the bar – and I could see the Pittsburgh-Philadelphia NHL game on NBCSN (haha the Penguins lost!!!!) as well as the local Vancouver-Winnipeg tilt (yawn).


Overall, a decent place to catch a ballgame and have some dinner with the game. … And ohhhh, apparently on Sundays, you could play ping pong and pool for free (as indicated on the sandwich board outside).



O Cafe (Richmond Olympic Oval)


I was at the Richmond Olympic Oval to check out a BC Major Midget Hockey playoff game, and stopped by the O Cafe on the ground floor of the building.

The pasta caught my eye this time, and I ordered a large one to go.


The taste was very ordinary – and expensive too – but at least the hockey game wasn’t too bad. I guess you can’t win ’em all. But in all seriousness I would recommend eating become going to the Oval, or bringing your own food.



But obviously I wasn’t there for the food; I was there for the game and to talk to the winning side:

…and the broadcaster too:
