Dim Sum = Towing
We went to the Jade Fountain in the basement of the Red Lion on Douglas St. here in Victoria. I checked the car before I walked in and found this notice on the car. I asked for a parking permit as I going to eat downstairs. They refused until I insisted. Basically the takeaway is: if you go to Jade Fountain for Dim Sum, you may tow your car from their lot while you in their bunker.
For the record: until today, there was no notice of a need for a parking permit. If you really, really need to go to the Jade Fountain, insist on a parking pass from the front desk before you descend into the Earth to eat dumplings.
