How was your time in Victoria Helene? Did you get to most of the places you wanted to? Victoria is becoming quite the little foodie city-I can't keep up with all the new restaurants and stores! There is a real movement to eat local food too which is wonderful.
Unfortunately the last two times I have been to rebar I have had awful service. In fact one time stands out as the worse service I have ever had in a Victoria restaurant. I want to love the place because the food is good so I am going to give it a third try. Sounds like you enjoyed your experience there.
I also see your son's team did well and is on to the championships.
Sorry I don't have the cookbook (I actually gifted mine to kayaksoup!).
And sorry for going off topic.
You think you're not ever going to be able to eat another thing, but alas, you will find yourself feeling strangely peckish around teatime. The more you eat, the more you want. That's the way it goes."
