  • Babes On Babes Vancouver // FORTUNE SOUND CLUB

    Babes On Babes Vancouver // FORTUNE SOUND CLUB

    Let me review the venue first.  If you’ve ever heard of downtown Vancouver I supposed you’ve heard it’s dangerous; “a warzone” full of “the walking dead” and other such fashy, dehumanizing drivel. The people saying it’s dangerous are for-the-most-part totally ridiculous, when they’re middleclass tourists with cameras running through the clearly demarcated shooting galleries and…

  • Samz Pub in Langley BC (#live happyhour review)

      2:27pm, Saturday, 9/23/23 At Samz with my fiancée and her roomie.  The roomie and I have both ordered the cheap-o 20oz glass of house beer.   Somewhere on maps or something my lady saw a $4.50 happy hour sleeve of lager.  They don’t do that anymore.  I was excited enough anyway, 20oz is four ounces…

  • Langley Buffet (spoiler: it’s incredible)

    Langley Buffet (spoiler: it’s incredible)

    Holy shit I was just complaining about how Mandarin doesnt charge $13 for lunch anymore and then I move walking distance of this place.  How fucking incredible is that?  Maybe it tells you something about the relative cultures of outlying Vancouver VS outlying Toronto; the wild west rises again, or something.  (We’re on the frontier,…

  • Travelodge in Langley BC

    Travelodge in Langley BC

    Apparently shitty-altho-clean hotel rooms are $200 now? Jesus, this place would have been $85 in Campbell River as recently as you like. That’s the whole review.  My friend read somewhere that there was a pool which is why a room was booked at all for the visit, and this place takes full payment with the…

  • Me-n-Ed’s (pizza place review)

    Me-n-Ed’s (pizza place review)

    I have been wanting to go to this place since spotting it in August.  It absolutely looks like my idea of a “hub of Langley” so the intrigue was high: That’s the side patio.  Kind of rinkydink innit, apart from the signage.  A little user-hostile, even.  Cement, bare-bones table/chair sitch, and more cement.  Oof! I…

  • Om Chicken (korean fried chicken place review)

    So when you tell gmaps to take you to “Ladner” it leads you to a stripmall called Ladner Centre. If you decide to eat there instead of driving somewhere else, you’ll probably be eating at Om. It’s pretty nice, it’s got a few things going for it.  I have a general gripe though. Decent ambiance.…

  • Satan Wants You premiere (movie review)

    Satan Wants You premiere (movie review)

    A few weeks ago there was a piece on the local news about Satanic Panic in the 80’s and how it was related to the island.  That’s where this starts, in a way. Click here to skip directly to the review of the doc itself However, there’s some backstory on why this story was of…

  • Poseidon in Langley BC (restaurant review)

    Poseidon in Langley BC (restaurant review)

    This place is open Mondays and the sushi place next to it isn’t.  Indeed, this place is open 7 days a week.  That’s so anachronistic lately, they must be lowkey hot shit; An Institution.  Any Langleyites want to leave a comment explaining the local lore surrounding the old location? I’m enchanted by the way it’s…
