Koi carps in Chinese restaurants

Ever notice the fish tanks with koi carp near the entrance in many Chinese restaurants? A friend told me that they are actually there to indicate (perhaps through the number or type of fish?) whether the restaurant owner has paid up to the local Chinese mafia (triad). Is there any truth to this or is it just another urban legend?

Help me find a good venue for a class reunion

I'm going to be organizing a pub night for my class from the grade school I went to at some point — probably in September or October. The best location for the pub is probably in the north end of Toronto, say on Steeles or Finch somewhere, and not too far east or west. Not being very familiar with that area, I'd like suggestions as to a good venue. I'd like a quiet and comfortable atmosphere, decent food, and definitely nothing dive-y or too bar-like.

What in the tammershand is a "Scot Burger"?

My mother was reminiscing about food she enjoyed as a youngster/young adult and she mentioned a "burger chain that had a 'Scot Burger'" that somehow involved some craziness that sounds a whole lot like coleslaw but made with Green Goddess dressing. She swears it is not Green Goddess dressing, per se, but could be similar. My google-fu has turned out the link above, but fails me as to the exact make up of the alleged "Scot burger". Please help!
