January 11, 2011 - FIRST - after this you have to go check out our pages of The History of The Buffalo Wing under "Did You Know".
We have been here for over 30 years and providing great food, but even more, a great atmosphere where patrons are surrounded with great people. We can stand up in history as being the Best in Ontario for that alone. After the fun exercise of learning about the history of the "wings", we realized how proud were that our customers can choose not only GREAT wings at GREAT prices (45 cents each), but even better, they have the option to order wings as an appetizer and match them with our 10 ounce SIRLOIN STEAK carefully grilled as YOU like it, topped with onions and pepper and simmered hot (and wait until you see the price!) Okay, so, on January 11, 2011 at 11:11 a.m. we realized we are a part of the wing history, made perfect. We, in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, are proud to say - we go up to bat for you. Along with being proud to be Canadian, we love to serve all our visitors from everywhere around the world that reflects our True North hospitality and fresh served food, (not in a freezer brought home, it's just not the same).
The History of Buffalo Chicken Wings stops here.

The sport of darts began as training in the martial arts, (well, the martial art of archery). Darts began in Medieval England. Historians surmise, because they don't know for certain, that those teaching archery shortened some arrows and had their students throw them at the bottom of an empty wine barrel.
The fact that the bottom of an empty wine barrel was used is a clue to how the game developed into a pastime. It is thought that the soldiers took their shortened arrows with them to the local drinking establishment to both exhibit their skill and have fun at the same time. When the bottoms of wine barrels proved to be inconvenient or in short supply, some inventive dart thrower brought in a cross-section of a moderate sized tree.
The "board" provided rings, and when it dried out, the cracks provided further segmentation. This cracked and dried board began to evolve into what we think of as the current dart board.
A game as fun as darts could not be hidden from the upper classes and they soon put their own stamp on the game. The oft married Henry VIII was reputed to enjoy the game immensely. So much so, that he was given a beautifully ornate set by Anne Boleyn.
