Hello Whistler!

Welcome to Whistler mi Gusta!

90 mins from my place, and we are here!  Free parking and all its glory :)  We bobsled, we skated, we drank, we chilled, we ate MOUNDS of the best nachos ever, and drank and went home.  First Whistler trip of the season, and it was pretty stellar.

Oysters, Lobster, Chocolate Oh My!

Second Valentines day with my Kenyo!  And how do we celebrate - with Sandbar of course!!

Below are some of the amazing dishes we shared over the night.  And the beautiful view we made out to afterwards :)

Superbowl Partayyyyy

Superbowl sunday and we hit up Relish!!!

$1 Oysters, $3 beers, great friends, what more could a girl ask for.  Well, my team won (yay), I won dinner for 2 (double yay), I won a Baltimore Ravens jersey (triple yay), I won a SF 49ers jersey (somewhat yay), and I win 50/50 $150!! YAY!!

Well the crowd wasnt too happy with all of my winnings, as I heard - "not her again" as I go to collect all my prizes :)  Thank you Relish for an awesome night full of prizes, and thank you Ravens for an amazing season superbowl champs!

Seasons In The Park - DOV

My first time visiting Seasons in the Park!

Apparently its Bill Clintons fave place to eat in Vancouver and has his own table.  I think we got a pretty fab patio spot too - with an awesome city view.  Nacho, Rahgan and I had a blast, and had an amazing time finishing off our passport stamps!  Now hopefully, we will win that trip to SF :)

Jimmy Taphouse - DOV on a Hockey Night

First time checking out Jimmys Taphouse!

I'm so glad I went here and wasn't sure why I haven't been here before - especially since its 2 blocks away from Granville and Robson, and they offer $2.99/lb of wings with 10 wing choices on Canucks nights!  Anyways, I came here for DOV - and tried my second $18 dinner menu of 2013.  This one I enjoyed a lot more than Bistro 101.  I cant wait to come back here on a hockey night and have $3 wings!!!

Bistro 101 - DOV 2013

First time dining at Bistro 101 at P.I.C.A!

My BFF Meric and I hit up Bistro 101 located near Granville Island for another DOV dinner.  This was my first $18 dinner menu option from this year.  Im not sure how I felt about the dishes.  The salmon wellington mixed with pasta sauce was a little off, and same with the scallops with beet puree.. but I sure loved my poached pear tart with ginger ice cream!

Thai House with my family!

Finally all the family is together for the first time in a long time!

My brother, my mom, myself, and my brothers 7 foot friend Andre the Giant and I went to Thai House to catch up - and these are some of the amazing dishes we had!  On another note, we had a crazy few hours prior to Thai House!  This is what happened.

  Andre drove my bro from Edmonton to Vancouver.  Andres truck got towed.  We went to get a temporary parking permit.  Permit place needed insurance, and was closing in 1 hour.  Insurance was in truck, in impound lot.  We got to impound lot, got truck.  I wonder why my crotch area is wet.  I wonder why my scarf is wet.  I realize my ENTIRE Vera Wang Lovestruck purfume opened up somehow in my purse and leaked everywhere.  Andres truck wreaks like purfume.  I wreak like purfume.  Everything wreaks like purfume.  Car windows are down.  Went to drive pack to permit place with 20 mins to spare.  Couldnt turn left on to Denman.  Had to go over Lions Gate Bridge during rush hour traffic.  Got stuck in traffic.  Went back over bridge and turned onto Denamn.  Found a spot right in front of permit place with realistically 2 minutes to spare.  Andre gets his permit.  I still wreak like purfume.  We go for Thai.  I get complemented on my purfume.

Gluten Free Dinner at Darby's

Eat, Drink and be Gluten Free at Darby's!

I took my mom to an event at Darby's sponsored by M2 Vodka, while she was in town.  It was a gluten free dinner, paired with gluten free vodka!  Everything was amazing, and I couldn't believe how tasty everything was!  I totally want to recreate everything I drank and ate.
