So, we decided to drive into Vancouver to try this new place out. We drove up and down the street looking for the place. We had the map, the address, apparently is was right there... somewhere. We couldn't see it. So, we parked the car and started walking up and down the street. Where is IT??!! Maybe it's on the other side of the street. Nothing. Hm, maybe it's this place? Nope. "Hey man, do you know where The Black Lodge is?" Nope. Man, we're getting hungry and getting tired of walking around the four corners of the very busy, noisy, and garbage strewn streets. Well, if this palace exists, it doesn't have a sign. So, we went somewhere else. As it turns out, the lodge was closed that day (nothing on their facebook page or elsewhere say'n they're closed). And now that some people have added photos of the storefront, you can see -- there is no sign. So, if they're closed, I guess they just close the curtains and that's it. Probably some hipster joint where they think it's totally cool to have no signage so only people in-the-know know where it is. Awesome.

Cons: nondescript location, I'm not cool enough to be in-the-know, filthy noisy polluted neighbourhood
