It was very poorly run in recent years. I have a relative who worked there for years and says things have gone way down hill and staff were unhappy. It was over a year ago that he first mentioned he wasn't expecting them to be open much longer.

I always liked The Freehouse, but it could definitely have had a better indoor space for what was there. They had interesting food options, although the last time I was there the food was just okay.

I have great memories of the Freehouse. That being said, if it's anything similar to The National, then it will be successfully. Arguably the most popular chain of pubs in Calgary (4 locations) - three of which are in close proximity to one another (8th Ave, 10th Ave, 17th Ave)

I didn't realize that the mez at the new Atlantis is a boardroom, although it does not seem private. You can also get catering from Malt City.

Capitol patio U/C today. The new trees along Hamilton are leafing out nicely as well. Taste of Tuscany has apparently closed on Scarth.

I heard it was Spices of Punjabi and I heard it was going to be a more authentic Indian menu and that they would be putting a patio on Scarth.

Taste of Tuscany was, for all intents and purposes, an Indian/pakistani restaurant anyway. Had a strong curry smell (good) and curry dishes in the buffet when I was last there over a year ago. Weirdest "italian" place I've ever been to.

I noticed this morning as I was walking to work that there are now seven patios on the Scarth Street Mall: Beer Brothers, Gilmour's Corner, Pita Queen, Spices of Punjab and Good Earth - all on the east side of the mall; and Fat Badger and The Chopped Leaf on the west side.

I'm mean really, Scarth Street in the summer is as good as it gets in Saskatchewan. I'm hoping something interesting goes in the Hill Tower I retail spot as it would lead in nicely to the park

Cathedral Social Hall will open on Albert by mid-June.
30 beer taps and a fancy keg cooler room:
