Split Crow Pub in Halifax Puts Twitter to Good UseAnita Kirkbride
It was the blizzard of ’14. The snow was all the way up to here! It was colder in Hammonds Plains that day than it was on Mars. I had to walk all the way to the end of my driveway to pick up the flyers that day and boy, I didn’t think I was going to make it back. Hubby’s office was closed and the kids wouldn’t even go outside to play! But one restaurant in downtown Halifax didn’t wimp out.
The Split Crow Pub, a staple on the downtown Halifax bar scene, knew that it was likely business as usual for the downtown business district. Their staff managed to make it in over icy sidewalks and while avoiding numerous snow plows, so they could only assume many other business people had too. This tweet caught my eye that day.

If you made it in to work in downtown Halifax during the great blizzard, you deserved a break. And heck… their staff were there and needed something to do. The food wouldn’t keep forever, so they might as well fill the place and earn some brownie points in the process. Good on them. I counted at least 10 of their close-by competitors who were tweeting they were closed that day. Someone had to feed those hungry people!
BONUS LESSON: It pays to check my Halifax Restaurants list on Twitter before heading out for lunch any day. You just never know what you might find!
