My story on Storm Crow Tavern is finally up on the Vancouver Sun website, and I assume it ran in yesterday’s paper too. You can read the piece here.
I’m pretty excited about this place, especially since it’s just up the street from where I live. The menu is somewhat limited (no brunch—yet) but I love the fact that you can stop in any time and the one screen in the joint will be showing cinematic fare such as Forbidden Planet and, as was the case yesterday (Friday) afternoon, The Last Starfighter. (Thanks to Rodney DeCroo‘s friend Michael for identifying the obscure 1984 sci-fi movie.)
I’ve been meaning to stop in at the Storm Crow more often than I have , but this is owing largely to the fact that most of my discretionary drinking-out income goes towards paddles of craft beer at St. Augustine’s. However, I do grow weary of that joint’s sports-bar ambience (numerous TVs tuned into TSN). Old episodes of Rocket Robin Hood are much more to my taste.
