Happy Canada Day

So, apparently today is Canada Day! I am in London, but there are lots of Canadians here and the one place they all go on a day like today is the Maple Leaf in Covent Garden.


This shows the line to get in at 1pm...what you cannot see is the eight-ten police officers standing around to make sure there is no trouble. There were signs up a few days ago that said the Canada Day Block Party would not happen and that open container rules would be enforced. I also did not show how long the line is, which went down the block and around the corner. Anyway, I happened to be walking by so I took a picture.

This is also the first day of the smoking ban in England...which means no more cigarettes in bars and restaurants. I went with Stuart last night to enjoy the last evening of smoking in a pub...we ended up at some really crap place near Baker Street Tube stop. It was kind of anti-climatic!
