Flashback Friday

“Back in my day you had to walk through a blizzard, uphill both ways, to get to Sneaky Dee’s for some King’s Crown nachos!”

We found this picture of College & Bathurst back in the day before Dee’s was Dee’s and knew you had to see it!

Now that we’re feeling all nostalgic, why don’t you join us on this journey through time, and check out a few of the wicked artists that have made their mark at Sneaky Dee’s in the past few years!

Remember when GOB came to play for our 25th anniversary? Tom Thacker saluted Toronto with “I love this fuckin’ city!”  followed by a “Here’s to you, fuckin’ TO!” from Theo Goutzinakis, right before busting out “Prescription”. It had been over three years since they were in town, and they were so stoked to be back at Dee’s!

This was probably the sweatiest mid-December night that we’ve ever seen! Monotonix made quite the entrance crowdsurfing from the men’s room to the stage. We’ve heard stories of people “banging” in the bathroom, but never on a travelling drum kit…

Were you there when Fucked Up packed the house in October 2008? Damian’s “Thaaank youuu!” at the end is oh so gracious.


1. The coolest bands from in and out of town eat here. Stick around long enough and you might just run into one! Need proof? Check out these links…

That’s right, a Sneaky Dee’s app. Who knew life could be so great?! We’re all excited to see your faces out this month.

A Photo Story: The Roseville Band

We can’t believe North by North East was over a week ago! We made some great memories, met so many talented artists and partied with some pretty amazing music fans. Speaking of talented artists, we were lucky to have The Roseville Band, all the way from Wrexham, Wales, come in to try our legendary King’s Crown Nachos.

The boys from The Roseville Band are no stranger to Toronto. They have played several times and were even named the 2012 Stand Out international band at NXNE! They love this city and always enjoy coming back. This time they came back to launch their brand new record ‘Temper’, which was written about their last trip to Toronto! The album was released today on Itunes, so make sure you pick up a copy! You can buy it here!

Steve, Andy, Neil and James gearing up for their first King’s Crown!

You can’t have a King’s Crown without a little Beer first

Cheers boys, get ready for the best nachos of your life

Look what they found, pictures of the Fucked Up Breakfast. Neil is a Vegetarian… and clearly excited!

And so it arrives!

Time to dig in. More importantly, what is the best way to eat this!?

I bet they have nothing that compares back in Wales, although we’re sure Mint Lamb is pretty great!

Make sure to dig into some of that guac!

This is business! Serious nacho face!

“Well that defeated me” – Andy

Well done boys, you got ‘er done.

Take some of the Hot Sauce to bring back home!

Thank you to the band for coming in and trying our King’s Crown Nachos. We had a blast with the guys, and got some lessons in Welsh (which we didn’t retain).

Make sure to pick up The Roseville Band’s brand new album ‘Temper’ out today!
