Hollinger's Redux?

Passed by and saw a liquor license application in the front window and all the "For Lease" notices removed.

Anyone have any more info? I would love the old menu to come back, myself.

    All I noticed on the application was bar and grill. I almost got an LCBO parking ticket going over to read it.

      The liquor license application in the Star stated "sports bar".

        Noticed a new sign up today -- Remarks Bar & Grill. And yes, looks like a sports bar.

          Dang. Well, one can hope they have good pub grub I guess.

            At least they are not calling it Hollingers this time. It is a big place, especially if you include the basement.

            A good pub? With a few notable exceptions Canada does not do good pubs. I think this is a factor of the culture rather than the premises.

            Went past last night. The flat screen TVs are up and running. They are in the process of cleaning up and signage.

              They are now open. Seems awfully quiet in there.

                Well, they need time I guess. Nothing compelling to draw me to it. Looks like just another sports bar from the outside, which just means more wings and fries.
