Lynn's Comments: Here, I go into my own family history to reveal the diner/pool hall that my wonderful, eccentric aunt Margaret owned. Oakview Lunch and Billiards was a landmark on the road to Wasaga Beach in Northern Ontario. One summer, I took the bus north to help her for a week or two.
Lynn's Comments: Working in Aunt Margaret's pool hall was a crazy experience—one I'll never forget!
Lynn's Comments: Aunt Margaret's assortment of regular customers would arrive every day. It was a social hub. These regulars would spend their time playing pool or sitting in the coffee shop. It was my job to make and serve them breakfast or burgers and fries. If they ever took a good look at the griddle we used, they might not have swallowed their lunch.
