It bears an uncanny resemblance to the aroma of a burger topped with poutine. Speaking of which...
Prepare to get cozy with SpritzBurger, a Lakeview burger shack filled with fizzy cocktails and hamburgers that may be considered immoral in some southern counties, opening tonight.
The Hearty Boys joined forces with Gale Gand to convert Hearty into someplace that’s perfect for lovers. By which we mean lovers of spiked egg creams, Cheetos mac and cheese and butterscotch pudding.

That last one’s perfect for Valentine’s Day.
