    Surly Mermaid in Sidney BC (happyhour/restaurant review)

    My go-to place to stop in for a quick drink in Sidney.  Feels like I’ve been in close to a dozen times in the past 12 months, now.  Mostly this summer. The initial hook was it’s the only place on the peninsula that has a peanut butter burger on the menu.  (No one else I’ve…
