17 Mile House Pub, 5126 Sooke Road, Sooke British Columbia, Canada www.17milehousepub.com This is great pub recommended to me by by Nephew and he sure came up big on this one!! Located right on the highway (Ok it is about 4 feet from the highway or 1.2192 meters). It is called 17 mile because it is 17 miles from City Hall in Victoria. In 1894 travelers heading to Leech Town to heck their gold claims would check in here for the evening. If and when you go to Victoria, you must make the trip here, I don't care how...even if you have to walk it is worth it! In side it i very quaint and busy! The bar is rounded "L" shaped and seats 12 people and is in the middle of the pub. We sat in one of 2 or 3 church pew styled booths. They have a separate room with a pool table. Lots of ole pictures and memorabilia on the walls. Out back is a great area with covered patio and big picnic tables, horse shoes and grassy area. There are 6 beer and one cider on tap. They have a decent selection of wine as well. As for food: I had the seafood chowder n a sourdough bread bowl. It was great with lots of seafood. I would order it again one of my lunch partners had the lunch special which was an open face brioche bun with shaved prime rib, sauteed onions and gravy with Cesar salad. Another great choice!!! My other lunch partner had the One Seven Burger and fries, fresh house made patty, mushrooms, onions, cheese, apple-wood smoked bacon and 17 mile sauce on a brioche bun. Right up there in the burger world for great burgers!! Great service, even when very busy, great atmosphere. We all loved this place and can't wait to come back!!

Beer Park by Budweiser Rooftop Bar & Grill Located at the Paris on the Strip. I didn't put the address because if you can't find the Paris, you have probably already had too much to drink and shouldn't be going here! Great location open air bar with a retractable roof over looking the strip. They have 2 large sit up bars, each seating 40 people. There are 2 pool tables, shuffleboard, beer pong, 3 kinds of Jenga gm3s, the regular one, a middle sized one and the large on the ground ones and Foosball table. Loads of Flat screen tables through out. Lots of the tables are picnic table style and artificial turf covered floor. They have over 100 different types of beer including 36 different types of beer on tap. My brother in-law had the Bourbon lemonade which he said was awesome and he said he could have sat there all day drinking that! The Nachos were very good! We also had the loaded Tater Tots which were covered in a good cheese sauce, mmmmm good! Week before the Super Bowl party and they said that they were already sold out. I can only imagine what a good time it would be here! Service was pretty good and nice and friendly. We all had a blast here and suggest you try it out if you are on the strip!!

Pinehurst Pub 11753 15th Avenue NE Seattle, Washington U.S.A. Went here for lunch on a Friday and the 12 person "L" shape sit-up bar was full. Beside us there was one person at table. Several local regulars were sitting together. Small , non fancy bar. There are 2 pool tables and by the pool tables is a 12 person pub high table. They have pull tabs if you are interested in them. There are 8 TV's through out. This place seats around 60 people max. The previous owners had it for 10 years. the Pinehurst has been here for over 40 years. For lunch we shared had the Whiskey burger with 2 strips of bacon on a brioche bun and tater tots and the pretzel and beer cheese dip. The burger was home made thick and juicy very good too! But make sure you ask for it to be cooked the way you want because mine was on the pink side in the middle. The bartender said next time just ask for your cooking preference. The warm pretzel was good but the dip was a little flat, needed a bit more zip to it. The wine is $7 per glass and very decent size. Pop is $2 and bottomless. 10 different types of beer on tap. New carpeting through out and all of the chairs and stools were in excellent condition. They have a beautiful 4 foot wide Budweiser sign behind the bar and can bee seen in the picture above. I would come here again for the burger for sure!! This bar is 21 years and over.

This is an awesome place! It has been around for for over 20 years,but the building was built in 1945 and was an automotive repair shop. Lots of automotive pictures etc on the walls. This place has an area for 21 and over that features a small 5 person sit up bar. That is all for seating in the over 21 area. Fro wine it is red or white, no other choices LOL! there are 9 or 10 beer on tap and hard liquor. The front has 3 roll up garage door style windows for the nice weather. There are 12 tv's through out. Now for the wings, I had the teriyaki ones which were big and dripping in sauce. They were great We also had the #3 hot wings and apparently they were good too. I can't do hot wings. The deep fried pickles were awesome too! They have the "7 Alarm challenge" You must follow the rules to get them for free, a free t shirt and you picture on the wall. All you have to do is eat 7 7 Alarm Wings in 7 minutes, no drinks at all and clean fingers with in 7 minutes. If you don't succeed you pay $7.77! A challenge that I am not up too! Judging by the photos on the wall lots have taken the challenge ans succeeded. the service is good as well as friendly! A well known place and I loved it. I cant wait to come back again!!!
