Lobster Summer at The Keg

This is going to be a bit of a bias post, as The Keg is one of my favourite restaurants. I love the fact that you get constantly good service and the food is great. So when I was invited to The Keg Yaletown to sample their new Lobster Menu, of course I said yes….

Exile Bistro

I’ve heard a lot about this small restaurant. Located steps from Davie St, Exile Bistro started off as a vegan/vegetarian place with a decent brunch. It is now a forage-forward style restaurant that puts most farm-to-table restaurants to shame. It is also well known for their innovating cocktail list. I took some of my favourite…

Tasting Plates YVR – Fraserhood

Last night was Tasting Plates YVR #Fraserhood which took myself and my friend from Edmonton along a food journey on Fraser Street in East Vancouver. Presented by VanFoodster, this food adventure took us to 4 locations on Fraser between King Edward to Kingsway, and the starting point where we picked up our passports, the Honey…

Confessions of a Pokémon GO Widower

Ok, so two days ago my wife lamented to me that the free “Pokémon GO” app wasn’t available in Canada. I stared at her blankly trying to figure out how to respond. I vaguely remember Pokémon being some type of game from the 1990’s, and the name “Pikachu” along with a fuzzy image of a yellow smiling…

Find Cheap Gas Around You with Gas Buddy

There are literally hundreds of thousands of websites on the Internet, as well as tens of thousands of software applications that you could install on your cellphone. The problem with so much information is knowing which one’s are the most useful and can help you in your daily life. Aside from basic practical apps like…

Into the sky with Whistler Superfly Ziplines

When it comes to staycations in BC, I can imagine Whistler Blackcomb easily one of the top destinations, and not just in the winter! In the summer months, Whistler has a great variety of outdoor activities, including trail biking, sightseeing tours, jet boating, bungee jumping, horseback riding, ATV tours, white water rafting, and more. My friend…

TuriCentro Los Chorros in El Salvador, Central America

I recently travelled back to my home country, El Salvador, for a short visit to see my family. I know that at the moment El Salvador is not a hot tourist destination, and I find that sad. It’s such a beautiful country full of beautiful things to do, Paul Walker used to travel down there…

Not your average ready-made cocktail: Meet Black Fly Beverages

I’m a fan of any product that makes entertaining easier. But I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my cocktails. Even thought I’ve been known to use a little bit of mixes when creating my drinks, I usually don’t serve ready-made cocktails at my gatherings. I find most of them too sweet,…

Nuun Hydration

Let’s talk hydration, shall we? My reason for bringing it up is that it’s summer, it’s hot (sporadically in Vancouver, apparently) and you’re out and about getting your sweat on. You may drink H2O or maybe even have a sugary sports drink if you’re sweating for longer than an hour, but are you really getting…

The New Boston Pizza Summer Menu is Here!

Summer is here and that means sun, sand and patios. Boston Pizza has the best patios around, and now, with their new All-Start Burger Lineup, the best burgers too. The crowning gem of the All-Start Lineup at Boston Pizza is the MVB (Most Valuable Burger). It consists of a 100% Canadian Beef patty, lettuce, tomato,…
