There is a pub/hostel downtown called The Cambie. I have spent many the drunken evening there. The pub is divided down the middle with a picket fence, you can drink and eat on either side, but you can take your kids to the restaurant side.
My son loves going there, I think it makes him feel grownup. He didn’t want to wear one of my Ben Sherman’s, so we came to a compromise on my Buzzcocks t-shirt. He still felt it necessary to be a dufus when I took our picture.
We were sitting at the table and he turns to me ” Momma, why did someone write in pig latin on the table?” I replied ” For the same reason someone drew a penis on the table, just under your arm. I have no idea.”
