Weekly Shout Out – Saint Franks, Andy Shauf, Turtle Express

Greetings pretty ponies! First of all, we apologize that our hiatus from web wrangling went on much longer than anticipated.  We won’t bore you with the particulars, suffice to say, work/family obligations took precedent.

Malahat Chalet/Moonwater Lounge

Good afternoon, pretty ponies! A couple of times a year, we like to go on a mini-getaway right here on Vancouver Island. Last week, with Valentine’s Day looming and canoodling on our minds, we decided to make the short trek down the Malahat to scenic Moon Water Lodge. Moon Water Lodge, a casual, chalet style […]

Spinnakers Pub

Good afternoon, pretty ponies! On a weekend afternoon, there is nothing we enjoy more than sauntering along the Songhees, the picturesque walkway which extends from the west end of the Johnson Street Bridge, all the way down through to the municipality of Esquimalt.

The Bengal Lounge

Bengal Lounge Victoria BC Curry Buffet

Monty’s favourite lounge. Definitely a splurge, but worth it for the relaxed opulence of the British Raj theme and the popular curry buffet. Romantic and sophisticated, it’s an experience you won’t soon forget.

Habit Coffee

Horsing Around Victoria Habit Coffee

Habit Coffee may be the favourite destination for young urban nihilists in Victoria. Tattoo and piercing aficionados while away the hours quaffing delicious latte macchiatos – think deep rich espressos topped with a whiff of foam. The Pandora Street location is stocked with a superb selection of magazines: Saveur, Paris Review, Atomic Ranch, and Bomb […]
