Been awhile since I added other businesses to my Deacon Blues Approved part of this blog. Time to add three new ones now …


If you’re looking for a GREAT breakfast, then it may be time to head down to Stoney Creek and check out Sunnyside Grill. Please don’t confuse this with the places at Centre Mall or Eastgate that have a “similar” name, they are nothing in comparison. The food was good, the portions will large, and the service was amazing. It can get busy at times, so you may have to wait a little, but they are efficient. The server I had was fast and friendly, not talking too much but more than willing to have a brief conversation if YOU want. This had to make my list.

Next on the list is the BEST place in the GHA to find unique and licensed collectibles and weapons. Into Dragons? Swords? Skulls? etc. Then you need to visit The Dragon’s Lair Unleashed on Ottawa Street. You won’t be dissappointed with the trip. I spent about a half hour just looking at the shelves on amazing pieces.

So, the last place on my list is a gem in the East End of Hamilton and is a great shop to get a tattoo done, and if your not into ink, that’s okay too. They are also a full service barbershop as well. Clean and friendly and one of the first businesses to jump on board to support the community and any other worthy groups in need. I highly recommend Soules Classic Barbers & Ink Ltd.

Please explore the city and feel free to share the places you find and the ones you love the most.
