Station Six pumps out the patties for Burger Week

The Spryfield restaurant has sold over 1,200 burgers and counting.
In March, around the same time the first case of COVID-19 was reported in Nova Scotia, triggering a province-wide shutdown, over 150 restaurants were preparing for Burger Week.

For richer or pourer

Locked away in Onyx’s cellar is the most expensive bottle you’ll find on a Halifax wine list. What makes it worthy of such a price?
The wine list at Onyx is extensive, to say the least, with 320 bottles of red, white and sparkling wine ranging from $29 to thousands. Appropriately, they label their wines by occasion–"everyday," "celebratory," "special occasion" and "you only live once"–to organize, and perhaps to legitimize, the small fortune one might pay for a wine in the latter category.
