Something To Crow About

This is the sign painted on the narrow walkway leading to a backyard BBQ place that recently opened by the railway tracks that run behind Dupont St.  Named after Big Crow Lake in Algonquin Park (one of the most popular provincial parks in Ontario), it is said to be inspired by the park, by canoe trips, and cooking food over an open fire. Apparently it is completely outdoors with just a roof for covering. I haven't tried it yet but hope to get there before the summer ends!

You'll have to let us know. Good BBQ is hard to find.

Sounds like a great place. Hope the BBQ lives up to the hype. Love the illustration style of the purple crow.

That is one scrawny-lookin' crow! But I'd still try the BBQ place.

Sounds like a great idea! Almost as good as going to the real Big Crow Lake...and a lot closer.

That is a good sign, RedPat. I hope the taggers leave it alone.

So, your folks still live in the home where you grew up. Deep roots up there!

Those massive claws and open beak are very impressive. A great sign and mural.
