Tygiel Pub, Senacka 9, Krakow, Poland www.facebook.pl/tygiel.pub I very interesting place just off the main drag and shopping area of Krakow in the Old Town area. The patio area out side is much different from the pub its self. It sits about 14 people or so. When you enter, you go down stairs and half way down there is this cool brick tunnel area that sits about 15-20 people. You continue your way down which feels like a story and a half down. They have a small sit up bar and a iron spiral stair case to a small seating area just above the bar. They have 2 or 3 types of beer on tap, but I went with the Zubrowka Bison Grass Vodka. The bottle has a stem of grass in the bottle with a slight grass taste to it. Can't tell you about the food as I did not eat here. Interesting place for sure!

778-574-4446 www.originaljoes.ca It has a great location right on the North West corner of Hwy #10 and Hwy #15 in Cloverdale, B.C.. Excellent for travelers from U.S.A. heading to Whistler or where ever. It is about 7 miles straight north of the PAC Highway border crossing and on the way to Hwy #1. They have 16 different types of beer on tap including 5 of the Original Joe's beer. They also have numerous canned and bottled beer as well. Thursday is a great day to go as it is 1/2 price on all bottles of wine. They have daily food and drink specials. There is a catch to this place.....they allow children. When we were there any one who came in with young children were all seated along the north wall so they didn't bother the rest of the patrons. There is a nice sidewalk patio that faces west and runs the whole front of the bar. 2 large roll up garage doors can be opened up from the inside area to the patio. They have a nice sit up bar that seats 11 people. Along the walls they have booths and the rest is high bar chairs and tables. Several of the tables seat 6 easily. The food was very good. I had the Hawaiian burger that had peppered bacon, pineapple and terriaki sauce with lettuce, tomato on it. It also comes with your choice of 2 side dishes, I had the coleslaw and the french fires which also come with gravy. Other sides include salad, yam fries and a couple of other things but I can't remember. The burger, fries and coleslaw was all very good. There is a lot of food on your plate. My assistant the "Blogger Babe", had the fish tacos which she said were very good and she gave them an 8 out of 10!! There was no shortage of servers all of whom were were very friendly and helpful! With 6 flat screen TVs you won't miss any sports either! The washrooms are very modern and clean, they should be as they have only been open for 6 weeks! I really enjoyed my visit here and for sure I will be back. It is located in a small mall with a Chocolate shop, Staples, M&M meats, Vera's Burgers, Starbucks, Rexall Drugs and a few more opening up.

Toby's Tavern, 8 Front Street, Coupeville, Washington, USA Ph# 360-678-4222 www.tobysuds.com This was another fantastic fine, and thanks goes out to my good friend Dean Sr. for this one!! It is located right on the water in down town Coupeville, Washington. It is on Whidbey Island which is also home to the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. Here is from Toby's website:
"The building is on the shore of tranquil Penn Cove, waters known for its abundant crop of Mussels. Originally a mercantile built in approximately 1890, the structure has housed many businesses. Following prohibition, it became a beer parlor and has been a Tavern/restaurant since the early sixties.
The back bar was originally brought around the horn and placed in the Fort Warden officers club in about 1900. It then moved to Fort Casey and then eventually to the Central Hotel in Coupeville. When the Hotel suffered a serious fire, the back bar was then moved to its current location at Toby's."
Toby's opened up in 1938. The Front street is full of shops and places to eat all of the buildings are from around the late 1800's early 1900's.
They have beautiful ornate sit up bar that is full of history. The sit up bar was full for the 1 1/2 hours that we were there. I would say it sits around 15 people or so on backless stools!
The food here is awesome! We were there with a bunch of friends and ordered the 2 pounds of steamed Mussels. which came with wonderful fresh toasted bread. These were probably the best mussels that I have ever eaten. One of our friends ordered the Ruben sandwich, which came on fresh dark rye bread and lots for french fries. Other friends had the fish and chips which were also very good. The service was fantastic and the girls were running all the time keeping every one happy!
There is a good variety of beer on tap, as well as a decent wine list. It is great sitting here, looking out at the water and watching all of the boats passing by.
They have one pool table, but no one was using it when we were there. This place was packed the entire time we were there. There are all kinds of things on the walls from a moose head, buffalo head, a 5 person rowing shell from the 1950's from the University of Washington. Just come in and check it all out.
You have to go to Coupeville as it is so beautiful here, great shopping and of course you have to go to Toby's Tavern! It is a definite two thumbs up for sure!

www.rockinghorsepub.ca phone 250-468-1735. This was a great find, it is located on a 5 acre equestrian centre in the country. The house was originally built in 1972 and in 1977 it was converted to the Rocking Horse Inn and an extension was added. It has gone through several changes over the years. When you enter the pub is to the right and the resturant is to the left and is adorned with beautiful antiques. Out back there is a beautiful patio area and also extends on to the grass looking out to natural area of the ranch. The pub has a English pub look and feel to it. The sit up bar is beautiful and seats about 8 people and stands about another 8 people. There are 5 picnic style tables around the inside perimeter of the pub with 6 round tables with pub arm chairs. They have one country style table that seats 8 people. There is one pool table and 3 flat screen TV'S. The food was very good, I had the steak and Guinnes pie which came with home cut fires. My wife had the Chicken Medetrainian Salad that came with black olives, feta chese, sun dried tomatoes, cucumbers mixed greens with a beautiful balsamic vinagerette dressing. She said that it was very good. There is a fire place with a wood stove insert that actually burns logs....not a fake one! The serivce is very good, and the regulars very friendly. I learned alot about fishing, crabbing and prawn fishing, if you are in the area maybe drop in for lunch and get a few tips before you head out on the ocean. This place is well worth the time to stop in. When I was there a British Sports club car dropped by with 10 old sports cars. There is lots of paking aswell! Great find!!

If you are ever in Pacific Beach you have to go here for sure!

www.bonvinsandiego.com It was fairly quite when we were there. They sell wine from California, France, Italy and Spain. There is a tasting room in the back and a sit up bar where we sat. In front there are comfortable chairs to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. To go with our wine we had a cheese plate with three different types of cheese. Bon Vin is located in an old heritage building. The plaque on the front of the building offers this information about the building:
The Lewis Brick Block, Stingaree Hotel 1887. Known as the Lewis Brick Block, the upper floors were referred to as the Stingaree Hotel in reference to the area's red light district. The main floor was used for cigar and tobacco shop, billiard hall and revival center. This Victorian building is characterized by decorative b rick arches over the second story windows and stepped brickwork along the roof line.
It is a very nice relaxing place to have a glass of wine, some cheese and let the day slip by.

www.coronadofirehousebarandgrill.com This is a Coronado Historical Landmark as it was the site of the first fire house in Coronado in 1892. Obvious fire dept theme. Sit up bar with its checker plated face plates, seats 25 and is 45 feet long. They have roll up garage doors at the front to open it all up, with side walk patio. 20 flat screen TVs through out the bar. The food was very good, I had the pizza, which was very good!

They have a nice patio area in front and it is a very relaxing place to enjoy a drink and something to eat. With 14 beer on tap, a large selection of craft beer and the usual beer as well as a nice wine selection you can't go wrong. Very wide open feeling here and mix that with all the sunshine it is all good!! Two thumbs up!!

www.pbalehouse.com . I can't tell you about the main area of the alehouse as we sat upstairs in the Sky Bar area. The bottom picture shows the inside of the main part of the alehouse. Upstairs was great, sitting up there in all the sunshine! They brew their own beer on premise and have seven of their beer on tap. Happy hour is Monday to Friday 3-6pm where they have $ 3.00 house beer and well drinks. The sit up bar up top holds 6 people. A covered area, for those who have to watch them selves in the sun is just beside the bar. On the roof top they have 2 flat screen TVs so you don't miss anything. A full food menu is available but we did not try any of the food, just the wine! It is half a block from the beach, very modern and upscale. There is glass on top of the walls surrounding the bar to cut out any breeze. The glimpse I had of the main area....it looked pretty nice, but we were n a hurry to sit up in the sunshine. The service was very good. I would go here again if I had a chance!

www.hennesseystavern.com Est 1976, This is an Irish theme bar if you haven't figured that out. The sit up Bar seats ten and extends through the wall to the outside area and that section also seats ten. They serve 10 different beer on tap. Very good service 4 waitresses. 2nd sit up area is opposite bar facing pub area and seats 10. Through out the bar there are 10 TVs. . Food and drink specials through out the week. "Grady" the bartender when I was there was great. He had a genuine smile on his face and really took pride in his job. The food here all looked really good when I saw it coming out. I tried the thin sliced potato chips, kettle cooked with sea salt and vinegar. They were very good. There were quite a few people here having lunch from all ages (no kids under 21). The out side area is neat with a covered area that goes around the walls and covers about 6-8 feet deep with the center area open. They have a gas fire pit in the middle as well as the front patio area. I give this place two thumbs up. Say hi to Grady the best bartender in the San Diego area!!

www.analogbar.com This was interesting, we were there on a Sunday afternoon around 33o pm. This place was rocking to techno pop style music. Girls were dancing with glow sticks, and the guys were dancing as well. You would have thought that it was 1:00 am and not 3:30 pm on a Sunday. We chose to sit out side on the side walk patio area, where we could hear the music but not go deaf, LOL! The bar in the picture is the right side of the bar, the quieter side is to the left with booths and a couple of large tables in the middle. As for food and beer I have no idea, I didn't venture in side too far other than to use the washroom. You choose if this is your kind of place.

www.winestyles.net/coronado A very nice wine shop that you can sit down and order a glass of wine and a nice cheese plate. They have a very nice sidewalk patio area in front. In side there is a 6 person sit up bar and 6 bar height tables for two. There is a very good selection of wine. I suggest ordering the wine flight which is 3 half glasses of wine. They change the types of wine daily and you can do reds or whites. A daily wine special is another feature they have. With a good selection of cheeses, they will pair it up with your wine. The back room has a wine tasting area and it was very popular when we were there. I think you pay a small fee and they take you through various wines. The Wine Styles also has a great selection of gifts all with a wine theme. If you are n to cigars they have a nice selection of fine cigars. They had a live singer when we were there.....I could have done with out him. I preferred the recorded music and the singer got kind of cheesy! I recommend you try this place out if you are ever in the area!

There are alot better bars in the area.
