First, Herr's isn't Canadian, you can't even buy Herr's ketchup chips in Canada. Secondly, in dire need of poutine asap and better Canadian beer.

I can't tell you how pumped I was for a Canadian bar. When I got there, though, it felt like a dive in Milwaukee...which is also awesome, but not "Ontario." The service was great, and the Moosehead delicious, but without photos of cottages, lakes, maps of Ontario, Wisers whiskey, Old Dutch chips (although I was oddly happily surprised with Heinz)... and any reference to hockey -- I have to say... are we sure they've actually been to Ontario - or just blacked out there when they drank their liquor? A Canadian friend of mine and I were both disappointed but glad they made the effort.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
