If you’re looking for a good excuse to get out of the house on the Saanich Peninsula, why not bring the gang down or just stop by for a fun night yourselves to this welcoming pub? Conveniently located in the family-operated (for over 50 years!) Quality Inn Waddling Dog at Pat Bay Highway and Mount Newton X Road, the pub features plenty of parking and seating.
Spinning your favourite tunes
“There’s a great atmosphere, friendly staff and plenty of delicious food and beverage options,” says Brandon Petraroia, who manages that department at the hotel. “You’ll hear your favourite songs during trivia nights, plus there’s cash prizes to win.”
Music trivia nights, sponsored by Parallel 49 Brewery, happen every Saturday when there is no UFC pay-per-view event scheduled. Which leads us into some other reasons to make the Waddling Dog Bar & Grill a regular stop:
- Your comfortable home for UFC There’s a large number of Ultimate Fighting Championship fans in the area, and you’re invited to watch these special once-a-month events for free. That goes the same even if a big name like Conor McGregor or Anderson Silva is climbing into the octagon. Middleweight Silva takes on Jared Cannonier in the co-main event during UFC 237, starting at 7 p.m. this Saturday (May 11).
- Hockey playoff time, too If the NHL playoffs are more your style at this time of year, or early season Blue Jays baseball action, there’s 17 TVs to watch throughout the pub and you’re sure to find the game you want.
- Wild about wings The Waddling Dog is famous for its chicken wings, which are on special Wednesdays starting at 4 p.m., and every other night after 9 p.m. for a great late-night snack.
- Wine-tasting Tuesdays Last month the Waddling Dog started a special wine promotion for Tuesdays, when selected bottles are available for half price!
Stop in for take-home beverages
With a fully stocked beer, wine and spirits store on the premises, you can make a quick stop on your way home if you’re stocking up for a gathering or to enjoy that bottle of wine with dinner at home.
