Stampede Bison Grill. Toronto, ON
Gord and I grabbed a bite to eat late this afternoon at Stampede Bison Grill (Queen W/Brock).
Contrary to the name, they don't serve bison burgers anymore.
It was such a nice day that we sat on the patio.
We both ordered beef burgers and split an order of onion rings. Here's mine ...
These two guys provided some entertainment. The guy on the left was begging for money outside the liquor store (which is next door to Stampede). He was hammered yet was able to buy six big cans of beer, which he shared with is buddy while sitting on a stoop across the street.
The begger started out good-natured ... some people laughed him off as they walked by them, others ignored him. He came onto our patio and asked the guy at the table next to us for some money. The guy was reading and having a beer and basically told the begger to take off. Then it got ugly and the begger started threatening the guy. He left the patio inviting the guy to fight, crossing the street and mouthing off.
The begger came back across the street and the owner of Stampede talked to him and things seemed to be fine. A couple of cops on bikes came by and had a chat with the begger. He walked away, leered at the guy on the patio and called him a rat. At Queen W/Brock, he turned around and gave the guy the finger.
