    I think I would have given it more stars if I only came here for drinks but unfortunately I was here for food.

    We got their current dinner special of $25 set dinner. It comes with a choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. I went for the Bruchetta, fillet Mignon and berry pie. Out of the three, I actually like the bruchetta the most. It is actually surprisingly good. The fillet mignon, my choice of entree was a major disappointment. The meat is very old and rough, requiring tons of chewing! Finally, the berry pie just doesn't taste good.

    Overall, I got full from the meal but I was not impressed with the food at all. Service was good and it definitely has a vibrant bar scene. I would suggest skipping the food here!

    Like every other pet owner, I am cautious when it comes to picking a good vet, especially in the city. They tend to charge you so much it scares you away.

    I called several places including Humane Society and Bidawee and turns out this vet clinic is almost as affordable as the Humane Society and you don't need to wait a month for the appointment.

    The regular exam is $65 and each shot is $25 so your annual visit is $110. My cat needed bloodwork so he could get his teeth cleaned and the blood work is $140, which is about the same as Humane Society. The dental work is only $185, which is actually really good.

    In addition to the affordable services, the doctor we met was very friendly and patient. The wait is pretty short and they are open on Saturdays!

    We went to Turtle Bay on a Saturday night and it was what we needed. It has two floor of space and the cover is $5 but it includes a well drink.

    We had about 13 people in our group but we managed to find tables to sit down and chill. We checked out upstairs, which is a dance floor with loud dance music and we were not in the mood. So it actually works out they had a floor for drinking and chilling and another for dancing.

    The bar is not fancy or anything though. I wouldn't make my way out to come here.
