Friday Pub Dining & A Night Out On The Town
We ate at the Earl of Sussex Pub tonight, and it was excellent. The best french fries I've ever eaten--Scouts honor! Later in the evening, we traveled out to Club Soda. The bar was empty, and it was quite boring. On advice from two guys we met at Club Soda, we moved to the Edge nightclub. It was rockin' a little more at Edge, and we had a fairly good time. They played a few too many hip-hop and rap songs, but the crowd didn't seem to mind. After we left the bar and started the trek back to our hotel, a drunk latino stalked us and shouted anti-gay slurs at us. One of the guys we met at Club Soda--I believe his name was Jermoe--was walking home in the same direction as us and was ready to fight the guy!! I got a bit scared for a moment. Anyway, the guy soon left us alone, and we were back on our way to the Westin. Jerome assured us that this harrassment was a rare event in Ottawa and that we shouldn't feel discouraged in continuing to be ourselves around the city.
