Across the street from Lee Valley is a strip mall with a micro-brewery/pub co-owned Chris Philips from the Ottawa Senators, named, oddly enough The Big Rig. In the same strip mall is an Afghan Kabob place and a Shawarma place.

The two places zdogma mentioned are 5-6 minutes from Lee Valley. We live 5-minutes from Lee Valley, going the other way.
I don't know if they're finished yet, but when I was at Lee Valley a week or two back, they were renovating.

Can't think of anything "Mexican" in the vicinity, though the street zdogma referred you to (Carling Ave.) is a sort of "little South Asia", with grocery stores as well as restaurants. So, probably worth your while to drive down there.

If you're in the neighbourhood, you're always welcome to drop by Casa di Hammer. I should be home most of the day.

I'm not sure if there is any food at Casa di Hammer, but I can vouch for the gear.

Thanks for the invite...

I should clarify perhaps, "in the next little while" in my world could mean anything from tomorrow morning or sometime towards the end of May. lol

If I'm flying solo maybe I'll get in touch before I leave .
If the spousal unit is with me,Ikea will take precedence I'm afraid.

IKEA!!!! If its a Saturday you'd better bring a straitjacket. Its hell. I'm quite serious about that. I would go to the restaurant and eat meatballs. They are OK. The rest is hell.

I only ate there once, and don't have anything negative or positive to say about it, since I don't drink and most of the likely favourite menu items are off-limits for. But after you get burnt out in a shopping spree at LVT, it's nice to simply cross the street to eat.

The welcome is always available with a bit of advance notice, but I'll be on the other side of the ocean for the second half of May.

There ,or the golf course....wherever the blackflies are tolerable.

She Who Must Be Obeyed
You got that from Lawrence Wall on CBC, right? I don't know if he invented the term, but he uses it frequently on the air, when riffing with the host of the afternoon show. I've known Lawrence, and his lovely wife Roz, since we both lived in Fredericton back in the early 90's. (Lawrence's claim to fame was his live reporting from the Fredericton airport, when former N.B. premier Frank "Charlie Hustle" McKenna's plane had busted landing gear and had to keep circling until they could figure out how to get him down safely.) Roz is no shrinking violet, but she can be negotiated with, and does not require obedience. :)
