Danielle, Brian and I decided that a little Saskatchewan road trip was in order on Saturday. We jumped in the car, tossed in a CD and drove an hour and a half to eat at a diner in Hafford Saskatchewan. Most people would ask what would take us out to the middle of nowhere to get a burger.
If a 16 pound burger or a 45 pound pizza isn’t enough, there is the atmosphere. The Silver Sword and Chalice is one strange place. With medieval swords and gold chalices decorating the place, it has the kitsch that you only find in a small town. Mix in the stories of the Chef, an orphan from Toronto that picked the area by throwing a dart on a map, and you have a fun way to spend an afternoon.
For less than $10, you can get a 1/2 pound burger, fries and a pilsner beer. But if you have the appetite, AND 15 friends, the 16 pound burger is a measly $55. Just make sure to bring your own rubbermaid container so you can take home the leftovers.
