The best part of doing a podcast (sometimes, not all the time) is when you get to interview your buddies and chat with them about the cool shit they're doing.
Case in point: This chat with Simon Fallick and Patryk Drozd of Hero's Welcome.
Our talk has been in the works for sometime now and, well, I'm honestly happy we waited because they both had plenty to say.
Having already experienced the ups and downs of opening, and then running a bar together (they co-own The American), listening to their journey about why and how they took over the once extremely popular Taurus Veterans Club on Main Street left me elated. They each have a role to provide within their partnership and you certainly get a sense of how each fills it during this conversation. It's a big fun space with plenty of history and pedigree. It's in good hands now and should become a fixture in that part of Mount Pleasant for a long time to come. This discussion will give you all the goods you'll want to know about Hero's Welcome. Another small independent establishment run by two excellent fellows, exactly what Vancouver needs more of. I'm all for it and I hope you enjoy this one.
