Reminiscing; Summer Road Trip Food

It used to be that when I was traveling the Fraser Canyon and I wanted some amazing food experience, I would stop in Hope at 293 Wallace Street or Fat Jack’s just north of Boston Bar. Alas, that is no longer the case because 293 Wallace is gone, and Fat Jack’s has new owners and, […]

A Weekend of Work, Fun, and Food

A good weekend of work, fun, and food. The first lunch on Saturday was in a tiny hole-in-the-wall place near the Executive Plaza Hotel on North Road. Tiny place that I didn’t catch the name of. Very nicely cut sashimi. Finally, I’ve got the outdoor grill up and running again! The kids wanted smokies so […]

Take Five Cafe Take Two; Day 10 NaBloPoMo

Ironically I had to “take five” out of my busy schedule in order to re-visit the newest location of the Take Five Cafe in New Westminster’s Brewery District development. And I can say that I am glad I did. On my first visit I had the medium sized Americano. As I said in my previous […]

Mark Brand Re-Opens the Classic Save-On-Meats

For those unfamiliar with such a beast, it is a chicken deboned wrapped inside of a deboned duck with the final outer layer of flesh of a deboned turkey. 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 3G Restaurant on Cambie Street

After it was announced that the Lotto Max $50 million winning ticket had been purchased at a convenience store in Vancouver, my father-in-law made the assumption that he had won the Lotto Max jackpot. Assuming that he was now a very wealthy man, he called to invite us to a special lunch. Keep in mind […]

Men’s Night Out…Where to from here?

Every year about this time,or sometime before Christmas, I organize my Annual Men’s Night Dinner. It is a night of fine single malt scotch, cigars and brotherhood. Even more importantly, my Men’s Night Dinner is the dinner where I put aside my┬ávegetarian ways and go for the carnivore special. Last year we went to the […]
