Capers Whole Foods Market Kitsilano

On Sunday me, my Sweetheart and the girls went to our favourite playground in the city, Kits Beach.

A Visit to Romana Restaurant in Burnaby

One day between Christmas and New Years my father-in-law invited our family out for lunch. We settled on Romana Restaurant on East Hastings (a couple blocks east of Willingdon Ave) after I remembered a Tweet-up I attended at Romana’s before Christmas.

However, such a feast can be ridiculously expensive so I […]

Peckinpah; Vancouver’s Carolina-style Barbecue House

Vancouver has a new barbecue house. Peckinpah is a Carolina-style barbecue house that is opening tonight. And how cool is this, it is located in Gastown on the site where the original Gassy Jack’s Saloon was located. Although Peckinpah officially opens tonight, Saturday night, the good folks at Peckinpah welcomed me and my Banker into […]

Lunch at the Flame Stone Grill

We were visiting a friend yesterday and saw a take-out menu for the Flame Stone Grill on our friend’s coffee table. Our friend raved about the place saying that the lunch specials are massive in size and flavour and yet very reasonably priced. Like $4.95 for a lunch special. So we decided to take our […]
