Why Ottawa will never win

Having moved from Montreal to Ottawa I often find myself frustrated at Ottawa's small-town attitude, conservatism, and generally not being a world-class city.

Walking down Elgin Street the other night, nyxie and I passed a bar (can't remember which) with a sign out front that read

Live Jazz

Tonight
7:30 - 10:30


Let me establish again that this was a bar, not a restaurant. What sort of screwed-up city has early evening jazz clubs? Sheesh, in Montreal I might arrive by 10:30.
