Storm attacks Canoe

Posted By on Tue, Apr 26, 2011 at 3:10 PM

Drama: During Monday night's storm, an enormous tree was uprooted by the wind and crashed onto the outdoor dining area at Canoe. There were a few diners eating on the awning-covered patio but nobody was hurt, apparently.

The tree did not damage the rest of the restaurant. My source says pandemonium broke out when the tree fell. The power went off, people were yelling and the open kitchen, without ventilation, filled the restaurant with smoke.

My source says his favorite moment occurred when an apparently unperturbed diner, oblivious to the power outage, asked him if he had an iPhone charger on him. And people laugh when we say that cyberspace is overtaking real time.
