Liberal: Hy's Steakhouse and cocktail bar; D'arcy McGee's Irish Pub on Sparks Street.
Conservative: Hy's Steakhouse (it underwent a renovation after the Tory victory, but with its dark wood and plush seating looks pretty much the same) and D'arcy McGee's continue to be favourites of all sorts and political stripes of staffers. The new power breakfast spot is the Sheraton Ottawa Hotel.
Liberal: Paul Martin wasn't fussy about who cut his hair and frequented different barbershops around town.
Conservative: Rinaldo's. It was the choice hair salon of the Mulroneys, and its haircutters are responsible for Stephen Harper's new election 'do.
Liberal: Paul Martin loved Kraft Dinner.
Conservative: Stephen Harper has been known to buy hot dogs from street vendors.
This is exactly what people have been looking for instead of the recycling of press releases and televised kabuki theatre. Well done, Jane! Maybe you'll make a real live reporter one day!
