Kitslilano’s Bimini’s Pub Overs Dinners Great Value
Named after the Bimini Islands in the Bahamas, Bimini’s first opened its doors in 1974 after being granted the Province’s first Neighborhood Pub license. The busy bar was quickly embraced by the post Summer of Love-era hippie locals; environmental agency Greenpeace’s head office was across the street, and many of their radical plots were hatched in strategy meetings over pints. Aging myself here, I’m going to say I probably first went to the pub in the late 80’s and Michael and I have dropped in here and there for their great selection of craft beers and a quick bite or two. I’ve had a nice mushrooms scramble there the other day for brunch as well.
Since it’s in the neighbourhood, just down a few blocks on West 4th Avenue, we thought we’d check out the dine out menu here and it’s a great deal at just $20 for three course. We sampled through all but the mac and cheese, and opted to pass on the wine pairings Michael was in the mood for beer and I’m sadly off wine for now.
