The Edmonton Muse January 2019 - Page 20

As I reflect back on some of my favourite moments in 2018, a large quantity of them came from Rendezvous.

As well as being a food judge, I am also a huge metalhead. Rendezvous is like a second home to me. Calvin, Dez and the rest of the staff have always been welcoming and it feels good to be recognized when you walk through the doors of your favourite pub.

The Vous has stepped it up a lot over the past year. I can remember the good old days when there wasn’t a lot of choice for what you were drinking when you sat down to enjoy a live show. Now there are local breweries available on tap. There is a great selection of bottles as well. This beer snob appreciates the chance to enjoy local.

Although the Vous is not renowned for its food, the wings are some of the best that I have been able to find in Edmonton. Thoughtful right down to the finger bowls, which no one else in the city seems to do any longer. Wing night is Wednesday and they are 40 cents per wing with a minimum order of 12. You can’t beat that deal!

There is a menu featuring a selection of your pub favourites. Nothing fancy, just simple, delicious food. If you go for food, be patient. The kitchen is always open, but there isn’t always a cook for the late night hours.

Earlier this year, the City of Edmonton had proposed a plan where the building that houses the Vous was to be demolished and the LRT track was going to be built there. This gave a lot of us in the community a huge panic attack. Calvin and the rest of the crew were not going to stand for it and went directly to City Hall to let them know this was not okay! Thankfully the decision was rescinded. Way to go team Vous!
