Opening soon...

Actually, opening for dinner tomorrow night (Fri. Mar. 2): the new Cactus Club English Bay. Beach Ave. at the foot of Denman (right across from The Boathouse). Been in there off and on since mid-July installing the surveillance cameras. Place is really nice, and it's gonna be THE hot spot for fireworks.

Also fully built to LEED environmental standards, so yeah, there's a lotta money in this place. "Live" roof, herb garden, waste containment, the whole bit.

We're back to finish the outside cams once the weather is more amenable.

I think Cactus is backed by a handful of people.

But the face that had the idea behind Cactus is Richard Jaffray.

I think I read that Cactus is related to Earls and Browns SocialHouse. (Related in terms of financial backing).

"Browns Socialhouse owner Scott Morison proved when he co-founded what is now the 20-location Cactus Club Cafe chain that he can envision and execute a winning restaurant formula.
The ambitious 44-year-old is at it again, 23 years after he and then-co-worker Richard Jaffray left Earls Restaurants Ltd. to found Cucamongas Café, an ice cream and sandwich shop.
The duo sold Cucamongas in 1988 and opened the first Cactus Club, in North Vancouver, thanks in large part to 50% financing from Earls owner Stan Fuller."

Scott Morison profile

Love how a lot of businesses in Vancouver seem like they're competing with each other but they're actually under the same ownership

As I understand it, Scotty left Cactus under, shall we say, not-entirely-amicable terms... now it's kind of an ongoing competition.
