Rebel’s Rock evokes a traditional Irish county pub, where a cozy atmosphere complements made-from-scratch dishes and a draft-only beer selection. The menu lists three poutine variations, including Dawnes Mess, an Irish interpretation sporting three irish cheeses, Trimelston beef gravy, and a charming brogue ($7). Requisite Irish eats abound, from shepherd's pie ($10) to fish and chips, made with beer-battered North Pacific haddock ($10/5 oz.; $14/10 oz.). The Rebel burger flouts the rules with its combination of a juicy patty and house-made square sausage and its fondness for drag racing ($10).
With its wood-panelled walls, dartboards, and impressive collection of draft beers (not included in this Groupon), The Brassie Pub brings all of the pocket-watch and penny-farthing panache of a British public house to Toronto. The alehouse menu serves up North American favourites alongside traditional English pub eats.
Employing professional broadcast equipment, the memory restorers at Toronto Home Movies weave threadbare tapes into a sleek tapestry of digital imagery. Adept analog whisperers gently coax VHS, HI8, 8MM, Digital 8, and MiniDV ($12.50 per hour) or film ($25 for 100 ft. of 16mm film) into selflessly giving their content to the 21st century. Audio/visual virtuosos ready home videos, old movies, and public service announcement collections for transfer with a thorough cleaning and conditioning. After technicians edit out reel markers and empty frames, computers step in to scrutinize and enhance every frame for optimal colour and clarity. Customers leave with a high-quality DVD that, like every sequel ever made, is a vast improvement on the original.
