Top Two

How can a day that starts off like this be bad?
It was off to the Albert for lunch...a lunch fit for a king! Thanks for cookin up some delicious treats Soupy. Yeah, I said that a bit early but whatever. First off is the veggie burger. It is homemade by the man himself, fresh everyday. There is some fancy veganaise concoction on there as well as some avocado. The usual veggies make an appearance as well. A nice fresh locally made bun and you have a contender for best veggie burger in the city.
Next up is the vegan poutine. Fries, chickpea gravy and vegan cheese. If you order this, do yourself a favor and look at it for a while and admire and cherish the fact that you aren't burning yourself. FryGuy def burnt himself on more than one occasion.
Sarde enjoys the burger at an extra special price!
Oh well isn't that cute, TyGuy and Mel sharing some poutine.
This is basically the new spot for lunch if you are in and around downtown. Respectable prices and delicious food. After lunch was done, BiGuy and I enjoyed a very deliberate handshake. I bid these people adieu and it was onwards to watch the first semi final of Euro2008. Germany won and got a spot in the final but it was a stretch and I would go as far as saying they were outplayed a touch by Turkey...yes Turkey. Even though I didn't really care who won that game...I did care about the snack that was consumed during said game...
Here it is! Vegan white chocolate. Sinfully delicious. Chill and I put the smash on the whole bar. It's a rare treat to say the very least.
WTF is goin on outside?
Oh Ripley!
Tompkins was gettin tired from another hard day of chillin out.
These two adorable cats haven't shown themselves on here in a long time...but more importantly this little guy has been away too long. Here he is...Mac Johnson! Asleep.
A hulk-like wake up for the little dude.
No smiling today uncle boogles!
This little guy is getting bigger and bigger and if you hold him he'll walk up and down on top of you. I personally can't wait to hear the knowledge he drops when he starts talking. After fun with soccer and babies and cats was done it was off to the gym. After the gym there was some business to be taken care of. Out of control rhubarb bush.
Jim and I made quick work of that and I got a delicious ingredient to boot!
It was time for some food, so why not compare Soupy's vegan Albert burger to the North Star veggie burger? On the way there had the pleasure of running into this specimen. Yeah there were ghost horses airbrushed on the side of the car and horseshoes on the back. The traffic sign arrow was left in the picture to direct your attention in case you missed it and the red light was meant for the girl in the car...please stop.
The other contender for best veggie burger in the city. The North Star brings it every single time. Sriracha sauce being available is a glorious touch. The fries are always a great and a Jones cream soda really makes the meal. I would fuck with either of these on a regular basis. Don't ask me to choose my fave though.
And here is Robbie Tibbs enjoyin a shake from the North Star.
Ruiner is playin Thursday, at the Rocker which is the third floor of mondragon at 91 Albert Street. I have treats ready to rock for this show and I just plain can't wait to see Ruiner. If you read this and live in Winnipeg, come buy some cupcakes at the show! Also, Russia plays Spain in the second semi final of Euro2008. MOTHER RUSSIA!
