Spoiled Rotten


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I feel somewhat guilty writing this article. So to clear my conscience I’m gonna tell you something up front— the meal was free except for the gas to Rustico and back. The restuarant knew I was considering doing an article, and I had a feeling my money would be no good. But today, I’m glad I did it, because it ended up being a dining experience I will never

After ‘Setting Day’


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

There’s something about a Sunday drive in the country. It’s relaxing, but at the same time exciting. After all, there’s so much to see down a road you’ve never driven or a path you’ve never walked. About ten years ago a good friend took me for a Sunday drive down a road I’d never seen just outside Murray Harbour. I discovered two things that day; it’s a

A Friend for Breakfast


I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

For a time in the mid-nineties I lived in a three bedroom apartment above the Root Cellar on Queen Street in Charlottetown. Most of the people who lived in the building were about the same age with similar interests, so it had a very communal feel. The doors were always open, or at least unlocked, and you never had far to go to find a coffee and a conversation.

The Best Damn Pint


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

The Trans Canada from Vancouver to Calgary is possibly the most stunningly scenic drive in the country. It starts off in the rather flat lower mainland of BC. By the time I reach the stinkiest town on the Trans Canada, Chilliwack, the highway starts to weave its way into the Coastal mountains. Before I know it I’m on my way up the Coquihala Highway. It goes up

Rule Number One


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

Years ago I was a restaurant manager. Assistant manager actually. I saw the nightly sales. I helped develop budgets. I did inventory and calculated food and liquor costs. I trained staff and I waited tables in the meantime. But more importantly for what I’m about to recount, I saw just how slim the margins are in the restaurant business and I understood the

Matinee Performance


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I don’t find myself indoors very often on Sunday afternoons. Especially beautiful, sunny, summer, Sunday afternoons. Golf, frisbee, beaches and just relaxing in the sun are far too attractive for me to turn down most of the time. But every once in a while there’s a really good reason to go inside, even on a sunny, summer, Sunday. On this occasion it was a

The Yearly Reunion


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

Spring was tough and far too long. It rained, and it was cold. People were complaining about it, maybe just a little more than usual. Even the mosquitos and blackflies sought shelter. It took until mid-July for summer to really hit this year. Luckily, it came just in time for one of the finest social events of the season. It’s one of those events that, for me,

Grand Opening


I'm Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

It was supposed to be the grand opening of Thirsty’s bar in Cavendish... It was about seven thirty Friday night and I had just returned home from an after-work pint at my usual after-work joint, The Churchill Arms. I had a real urge to go out so I called my friend Rick. He was sitting at home playing guitar. When asked what there was to do he had an immediate

The Sunday Oyster


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

It’s a tradition of sorts on PEI. Take a beautiful, weekend summer day, a friend, a car and a couple of hours and suddenly you’re a Sunday driver. I love the Sunday drive, or the Saturday drive for that matter. There is so much to discover down a yet to be traveled road. Even on this very small Island there are still things I haven’t seen. There are dozens of

A Good Fit

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I called bingo for five years at the Royal Canadian Legion in Charlottetown. Under the tutelage of “Johnny Boy” Dunn I honed my skills and mastered the craft. But like many a talent, calling bingo lost its usefulness, and for many years it sat on the back burner waiting for a chance to shine again. Not too long ago the back burner got turned on, and I found
