ReTales July 7: NSLC trivia, Dowtown Matresses & Dartmouth Crossing Thai

As is typical this time of year there is not a lot of change in the comings and goings of retail stores and restos.

However BuzzFeed named the Halifax Donair as one the world’s 20 best food in the world to eat when you are drunk

Thai Ivory Cuisine is opening in Dartmouth Crossing.

Alfredo Weinstein & Ho closed in 2004, but where can I go today and get a PuPu Platter, Hoagie and Spaghetti all under 1 roof? Nowhere!  it’s a great injustice of Halifax.

local jo market

I really like having, a mini market not far from my home even if LocalJo only hosts it on Thursdays.

Went to McDonalds in Dartmouth Crossing Tuesday disaster, no one knew who ordered or didn’t, garbages over flowing, tables uncleaned, Coke was just water. Feedback I got from others is that is typical on weekdays for that location.

Sleep Country Canada is going to test the downtown waters by opening a store on Spring Garden Rd. in the old TD location.

Armview Food Shop on Quinpool @ Quinn is closing and being converted into a law office.

The big fancy new Spring Garden Area NSLC is no closer to being built, the Clyde St outlet and Port of Wines will be around for another 2 years.

Speaking of the NSLC the most expensive item they sell? Appleton Estates 50 year old at $5000 a bottle or ~$200 a shot.
The priciest wine in comparison is Cheval Blanc 1er Grand Cru  @ $1585 a bottle seems like a bargain.
Both are available at the port of wines.
Cheapest item? Moretti Italian Lager $2.45 a bottle onlt HRM location is at Fall River
