There’s music playing and a whole lotta fun and feel-good vibes, especially when people start reclining their chairs back and even doing a the “wave” among those who don’t mind feel as if they’re going to falling backward from so high up off the ground. There’s lunch, dinner, brunch, and even late-hour happy hour experiences, with prices starting at $149 per person. Dinner in the Sky was founded in Belgium over 30 years ago and now happens in 62 countries around the world. It
I had the chance to visit Mission Hill Winery a little while back, and... Wow. If you've never seen the jaw-droppingly beautiful estate , put it at the top of your list.
In fact, if you're looking for something to do if school doesn't resume in these parts soon, I'd recommend finding a way to get out of work and go on a road trip. And if you're lamenting the lack of resources to visit the grapevines of Italy, take heart knowing that B.C.is home to wine-making spots that ar
Can you spot the mouldy dog poop? There's nothing like getting out for a walk in the gorgeous greenery of Lynn Valley.
The North Vancouver region has stunning trails for people of all ages and fitness levels.
How totally disappointing and just plain gross to stumble across not just piles of dog poop here and there but mouldy piles of dog poop.
This is what happens to your beloved pet's waste, dog owners, when you shirk your responsibility and let it sit there: That's n
Let's compare, shall we, the diet of Grinder and Coola, the two Grizzlies up at Vancouver's Grouse Mountain, and that of the average American baseball fan.
Is it any wonder there's an obesity crisis?
I don't even know what a Funnel Cake is, but knowing that it comes from the same vendor that sells fried Twinkies, I don't want to know. Let's compare, shall we, the diet of Grinder and Coola, the two Grizzlies up at Vancouver'sGrouse Mountain, and that of the average America
Imagine this, parents: a trip to Whistler that didn't involve a stop at that playground near the Olympic rings. Granted, as far as playgrounds go, that one is pretty fine, what with its rubbery turf and all. But I sure enjoyed not having to hang out there this weekend, a getaway for our 10th anniversary.
The highlight: hopping on our bikes on Saturday and cycling for hours. I'm not talking hard-core uphill stuff. I'm talking the lovely, leisurely Valley trail, with stops e
Every November, my family goes to Tofino for a few days of surfing, eating, reading, walking, and relaxing. The pilgrimage that we share with friends has become an annual highlight. And every time we’re out that way, we go to SoBo Restaurant (unless it’s closed, which it is at some point every winter, which results in us being very, very sad).
The place started out as a food truck selling fish tacos and has gone on to become the best place to eat in the area: delicious fare
We just came back from two nights to Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound, Washington.
Let’s start with the good stuff: the kids loved it: the waterslides, the wave pool, the basketball pool, the obstacle course, and the Magic Quest. Now, onto the stuff no one tells you. - There is a US$14.99 “resort fee” PER DAY that isn’t included in the rates you see when you book. Supposedly this covers things like “free” Wi-Fi (which, by the way, wasn’t a great connection). But wow, it com
Trevor Bird is chef and owner of Vancouver's outstanding Fable Restaurant, located in Kits. He was runner-up on the second edition of Top Chef Canada. Shoulda won.

Heather Cunliffe opened Cafe Bliss in 2008 in Victoria with a simple goal: to provide pure nourishment. Her brother, Joe Cunliffe, joined the team in 2011 and together the siblings have drawn a loyal following of health-conscious individuals who come to Bliss for unique local, raw, organic food. They've gone on to open Be Love, a Blanshard Street resto with raw and cooked food. Heather Cunliffe She shares a recipe for Carrot Curry Coconut Soup from her book Blissful.
There's nothing better than a night spent sipping fine wine and sampling fine food. Even better when your entry fee goes to a good cause. The 12th annual North Shore Food and Wine Festival happens Saturday (October 19) at Park Royal North, with funds supporting the North Shore Youth Safe House. Sixty bucks gets you the chance to taste of 134 wines from 27 wineries in B.C., California and around the world, including some of my faves, Blasted Church and Okanagan Crush Pad; fo
