He wore black & I wore white, he would always win the fight

Cheers to firsts!

I had never been to the Cambie before, so the boys insisted we go there on a friday night.  Crazy times it was!  Jorge, Lesley & I ordered some food... and I also dared Jorge to drink out of a pitcher for 25 cents.  That boy does anything :)

Saturday, Jorge, Nacho, Catalina & myself met up for some seawall strolling, & shopping.  We started off at La Taqueria with some yummy tacos.

Afterwards we ended up at the Lamplighter for some patio drinks and Jorge suggested we order what we got the night before to share - poutine and nachos..

I cant stop loving you

Joeys patio & drinks in New West

Since it was a coworkers bday, and a beautiful sunny day - I finally made my first visit to Joeys Brentwood!  I must say I feel in love with their rooftop booths.  They were so comfy and I did not want to get up!  I had the most deelish ahi tuna salad, and edamame to start.

One of my coworkers ordered the lobster grilled cheese with mushroom soup that also looked amazing!

After thursday, I had a super stressful day, so lucily Nacho suggested after work drinks.  We ended up going to New West - and I havent been there in years.  We ended up going to a place called Rivers Reach that has 1/2 price appys every day until 6pm.  We ordered a few to share which we couldnt even finish, had some drinks, and watched some basketball.

It was dark dark dark, in a big big park

Mothers day traditions and more!

Hope everyone had a fabulous mothers day!  This was my first day without spending it with my mom since she moved to the Yukon, but I kept tradition and did the seawall.  This year, Ken joined me for our first Seawall stroll together :) 

After a wonderful stroll, we stopped at the Mill in Coal Harbor for some patio drinks :)

Later that week on tuesday I met up with Ariele & Jorge for tuesdays at Sanafir!  Neither of them had ever been and they were excited to try the 50% off menu.  Below are pictures of the dishes we all shared!

Love was changing the minds of pretenders

Cinco De Mayo & Other Good Times!

Ignacio, Diane & Jorge & I started off Cinco De Mayo at Warehouse with some $4.95 dishes!  I cant believe I have never been to this place before, when the food was really good for the value!  I had spicy chicken nachos, and corn on the cob.  I was soooo excited about the corn!  Normally when I make my corn on the cob, I put on hummus, hot sauce and parmasean.  I have never seen it anywhere else like that, and this came pretty close!  It had chipotle mayo, chillies and parmasean.  I was so excited, and it was sooo deelish!  A must try at Warehouse for sure.  Diane also had nachos, Jorge had fajitas, and Ignacio had the works burger with fries.

Since Nacho wanted to watch the Mayweather boxing fight, we headed over to Speak Easy to watch it.  I still dont get why 50 Cent & Justin Bieber escorted Mayweather to the ring.  However, I learned boxers have really gorgeous wives!

The following friday, Nacho, Jorge & myself started off at Cinema on granville for their happy house special!  Its $6 for 1lb of wings and beer.  Nacho had 1 order of salt & pepper, and guiness bbq, and Jorge & I shared 2 orders of BBQ & 1 order of hot wings.  I must say, this is one of the best happy hours in the city thats offered at a few Donnelly Group places.  We sat on the patio, and watched the Granville district, including a crack head get naked and change her clothes right on Granville & Smithe.

Afterwards we headed over to Las Margaritas and met up with Ken, & grabbed a patio table.  While waiting for our table, we headed over to Zulu where I picked up 10 more Vinyl edditions to my collection, and my Toots & the Maytals tickets!!

We had lots of margaritas...

I also ordered their Tequila tasting that Ken & I split.  3 Tequila shots, with a 3 course meal for $30.  I started off with all 3 shots :)

We also recieved complimentary chips & salsa which the boys loved.  Then I had the scallop ceviche.  The only other time I had scallop ceviche was at Sanafir, and I found the one at Las Margaritas way better!

Jorge had quesadillas which he was super excited for as you can tell.

Ken had the chicken mole that came with the tequila tasting menu.

We had a few more yummy drinks..

Nacho showed off his favorite piece of my new Vinyl collection.

Then we had the last of our meal with the crepes which we all shared.  Good patio times on a friday night :)
