Our second task as Canadian Beef Ambassadors is to talk burgers. Well I can certainly do that!
In fact, some of you can attest to the fact that when you get me talking burgers it is sometimes quite hard to shut me up!
Which is good, because tonight there is a Burger Party on Twitter complete with a $500 Burger Prize Pack up for grabs!

This is from a wonderful Sunday I spent driving though Quebec with Gerry O specifically to go to La Binerie (beanery) in Kazabazua.

A friend, and regular CheapEats contributor, has just opened her own bar – The Finn @ 971 College Street just west of Dovercourt.
