Best Bouncer/Door Person

Carl "Gooch" Comeau (Lower Deck)

“He’s pretty much the mayor of Halifax… he knows everybody,” says his “sidekick,” doorperson Toni Landry, who’s been backing up Carl “Gooch” Comeau for 6 of the 12 years he’s worked the Lower Deck. “He’s a lifer,” she says, laughing. “He’s huge. Nobody messes with him.” She adds that it’s not just intimidation that brings him the votes for Best Bouncer/Door Person. “He’s a big friendly teddy bear. There are regulars who come here and look forward to seeing him. He’s really… there.” Lower Deck, 1869 Lower Water, 425-1501

First runner up: Dave Spare, Halifax Alehouse
