Did you know Bryan Adams used to wash dishes at a North Vancouver restaurant noted for its unique burgers? Here's the story ...
Last night, I wrote the following email:
Dear Tomahawk Restaurant, Several weeks ago, one of A Hamburger Today's readers sent in a photo of her Skookum Chief burger, proclaiming it the best burger in North Vancouver. I posted her photo on my site, and, lo and behold, just this evening I get a comment from another readerone of your former employees, in factwho said, "What a surprise to see the Skookum featured on the web! I used to work at Tomahawk in 1980 and I tell you, the burgers are GREAT! The urban legend is that Bryan Adams used to work there as a dishwasher! Ah, the memories!"
So, I'm wondering, Tomahawk Restaurant, to the best of your knowledge, did Bryan Adams ever work there?
And today, I received this reply from Tomahawk owner Chuck Chamberlain:
Yes, it is true Bryan Adams worked here at the Tomahawk as a dishwasher. I also had the pleasure of working with him. He informed me that he was only working to save enough money to buy a guitar and some spare strings, as he was going to be a rock and roll star. And the rest is history.
Amazing. Rock on, Tomahawk. Rock on, burgers. Rock on, Bryan Adams.
