The Cactus Club located at 5500 No. 3 Road is not exactly styled in the same manner as their other locations… as a matter of fact, it looks like this location hasn’t had a reno for quite some time.
For some reason, I always forget that there is an Earls located in Lansdowne Mall. Maybe it’s because the mall entrance to this restaurant is usually closed requiring you to enter from outside of the mall. I’m only bringing this up because when we came by to visit this Earls in February, we walked right by the outside entrance and spent a perplexing few moments trying to find the mall entrance. We eventually went back outside the mall and entered through their outside entrance and sat down to enjoy some comfortable eats. Read the rest of this entry
On the seventh day of the Lunar New Year, people celebrate Yan Yat… “Everyone’s Birthday”. I suppose in certain cultures, the individual’s birthday was not as important as the New Year’s date so they conventionally added one year to their age on this date.
My first visit to Wings (not to be confused with House of Wings a few blocks away) was on a late December weekday. The lighting inside this pub is quite bright but the decor is mainly dark tones with black tables & seating, and dark coffered ceilings. Read the rest of this entry
Samz Pub recently opened up last year in the old Golden Ears Pub location in Pitt Meadows.

While we’ve been to Romer’s Burger Bar on numerous occasions, we’ve never actually tried stopping by for brunch… and for the life of me, I’m not sure why.
Tucked in the corner of the shopping complex at Marine Drive and Byrne Road is an outpost of Boston Pizza. I’m not sure why they thought this would be a good location since it seems to be very isolated from the rest of the shops but we don’t like crowds too much so it works out perfectly for us.
It’s been years since we’ve been back to Whistler so we decided to bring Sophie with us as we’ve always heard that Whistler is very dog friendly. This time around we stayed in the Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre and were very pleased when they upgraded us from a basic studio to the 2 bedroom penthouse Whistler Suite. OMG, this suite was awesome! Read the rest of this entry
