Moonrakers was my first pub. It was the first place that I became a “regular”. This visit was a reminder of how much has my life changed, and how terribly old I’ve become. And just like me, Moonrakers has come a long way since its neighbourhood dive days.
When I was just a young lad of 19, Moonrakers was a seedy little joint near where I worked. A good friend of mine lived above it. So it wasn’t long before it became our after work, after school, and after workout hangout. It was dark, shady, and often had questionable people. We loved it dearly.

It was about the size of a foot-long sandwich, with a generous serving of meat. The sandwich also comes with melted Monterey Jack Cheese, grilled onions and green peppers. You have to dress the sandwich yourself among choices such as BBQ sauce, teriyaki sauce and honey mustard sauce. (more…)
