The craft beer scene in Vancouver over the last year has been an exciting ride, with more and more breweries opening up or planning to open soon. It’s like the first part of a rollercoaster ride, where it’s all ascension and you don’t know when you’ll hit the peak.
I hate to say this, but I’m sorta taking a pass on this year’s Vancouver Craft Beer Week because there’s so much to do already! How things have changed over the last couple years!
Main Street Brewing Company just opened on May 29, so I went to check out their first weekend of operation. Some kinks to be expected but I see big things from these guys. Continue reading Main Street Brewing opens
After my previous pork-filled trip to 33 Acres, I had to come back to try their weekend-only brunch waffles. Continue reading Fluffy Waffles at 33 Acres Brewing
I love going to farmers markets when cash isn’t too tight. I went to the Trout Lake Farmers Market last week and stumbled across a little bag of morel mushrooms for $12. $12?! Is it worth it? I found out later, but first the rest of the story… Continue reading What Does $12 of Morel Mushrooms Taste Like? Trout Lake Farmers Market
I confess that I don’t go to 33 Acres nearly as much as I should. I guess I’ve been too lazy to walk the couple extra blocks from Brassneck… 😛 But after a fun recent trip to 33 Acres, I’ll be visiting them more often! Continue reading 33 Acres X JJ’s Trucketeria
Glad to see Hawkers Market back for another year of food, music and fun! (Previous posts here and here.) If you’ve never heard of Hawkers Market, it’s basically a warehouse party/rave mashed up with a farmers market/street food festival.
Lotta photos and less words in this time 😀 Continue reading Cookie & Milk Shot Plus More at Hawkers Market – May 10 2014
I love the accomplished Thai cooking in a casual atmosphere that Longtail Kitchen excels at. We went for a late lunch/early dinner on a Sunday afternoon. Since we got there around 3:00pm, we thought why not try their Chef’s Menu?
(See previous Longtail Kitchen posts here.) Continue reading Getting My Tail Kicked at Longtail Kitchen
We’ve been meaning to get back to Burdock & Co. for dinner after having a great brunch a while back. One thing that kicked our asses into gear was reading that Burdock won the Silver Award for Vancouver Magazine’s Best New Restaurant, so we thought that we’d better get in there before it’s slammed! (Farmer’s Apprentice won Gold, so uhhh, good luck getting in!) Continue reading You’re Such A Tease!! Dinner at Burdock & Co.
I was in Toronto for a work conference and Wicca tagged along. We only stayed for a couple extra days but what a time we had! Continue reading I just had to try the oysters in Toronto, didn’t I? Toronto – June 2013
The Rio Theatre on Broadway near Commercial held a Portlandia marathon called Portlandiapalooza, featuring “artisan grilled cheese” and special Portland beers. I had a super-fun time and could’ve stayed a lot longer than I did. Continue reading Portlandiapalooza at Rio Theatre: Artisan Grilled Cheese & Portland Beers
