Just a little question and warning perhaps. I have heard rumblings in the Halifax area of animal right protesters planning to protest the name Split Crow, saying it promotes violence against crow's. Where does the name originate from and maybe I can get the word out.
Thanks, margreek@hotmail.com

Here's the story on the name - hope it will quell the protesters...
The Split Crow Pub - A History
On July 17th, 1749, Governor Cornwallis granted a license to sell Beer and Liquor to a Mr. John Shippey. This was the first liquor license to be issued in New Scotland, (now Nova Scotia). John Shippey named his tavern "The Spread Eagle", as its sign was taken from the German coat of arms, The Double Eagle. Shortly after opening, the tavern became affectionately known as "The Split Crow".
John Shippey's Split Crow, located at the southwest corner of Salter and Water streets, quickly became a second home for sailors, mariners and travelers. They were given comfortable lodgings, food and generous mugs of grog. In the tradition of the day, music was played, ladies entertained, politics were discussed and, inevitably, fights broke out. One of these fights resulted in the first ever murder charge in Nova Scotia.
More than 250 years later, although in a different location, The Split Crow, continues to serve mariners and travelers from around the world and nearby. A welcome smile, hearty platters of food, generous mugs of grog and, of course, great music.the tradition continues.
You are always welcome at The Split Crow.
thanks for you email
-Kate
