Re: “The hunt for Winnipeg’s best veggie burger”

In response to The hunt for Winnipeg’s best veggie burger, published March, 25, 2009.

Never having sampled a veggie burger from the Lo Pub I cannot comment on Jonathan Dyck’s remark about the “uninspiring rendition” of the veggie burger offered up to him (March 26 edition). I can however, agree with his other comments that the Lo Pub is “a great place to have a drink and check out the awesome music.” I would also like to point out that while the Lo Pub provides food for its customers it does not prepare that food. The food comes to the pub via the adjoining restaurant which is part of the HI facility. This is a point that seems to have been overlooked. I feel it is quite unfair to place the blame for the poor quality of the burger on the Lo Pub.

The Lo Pub is great new venue for the local music community. It is also a great meeting place and a wonderful pub. It should not be blamed for something that it has no control over.
