Generations of ale aficionados have viewed a hearty pub as their home away from home, although most proprietors draw the line at dragging along the duvet and pet iguana. Get cozy with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks at Black Sheep Pub on Jasper Avenue.
Camaraderie prevails at this cheery establishment, whose gourmet pub grub keeps sports fans, DJ fans, and fan fans well energized. Snack champs can begin with yam fries ($5.75), wings in a dazzling array of flavours ($9.50), or classic poutine ($9). For heartier fuel, those inspired by the elegantly framed photos of sheep may turn to the Black Sheep lamb burger ($11.25) or the Jack the Ripper, whose entirely benign ingredients include spicy blackened chicken with bacon, aged cheddar, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, and a crispy, nonmurderous pickle ($11.50). Salads, soups, and internationally inspired edibles almost complete the picture, but Black Sheep grazes in more than culinary pastures. Games beam vigorously from large flat-screen TVs, and on Friday nights, DJs, like snake charmers, turn even the shy into slithery dancers.
