His Take: Amazing Curry Deal in London’s Brick Lane

His Take: Amazing Curry Deal in London’s Brick Lane

There are two types of people in this world: those who love to bargain, and those who hate it. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. Jamie hates it, which is fine for me, because that means that when we head to places like Brick Lane in London, she is more than happy to sit back and let me go for it. When ... Read More »

His Take: Bellwoods Brewery and the Best Garage-Made Beer in Town

His Take: Bellwoods Brewery and the Best Garage-Made Beer in Town

Everything about Bellwoods Brewery wreaks cool. The huge outdoor patio in the summer complete with picnic benches, a classic white picket fence, and outdoor BBQ on which sausages are being tossed up create the impression that you’re chilling in your best friend’s back yard. The interior, an auto garage turned micro-brewery, gives off the vibe of a super chic urban ... Read More »

His Take: Ridiculously Cheap Sushi, Lunch Special at Sake Maki

Although the list of things to love about Vancouver is endless, any local would agree that the city’s sushi should be right at the top. After spending 4 years of University in Montreal with buddies that almost entirely hailed from Van City, I became enamored with their stories of “Vancouver sushi” which eventually pushed the food to legend status in ...

His Take: Why Rovinj is the Most Romantic City You’ve Never Heard Of

His Take: Why Rovinj is the Most Romantic City You’ve Never Heard Of

I was recently reading an article on the web that ranked Venice as the most romantic city in the world. Not exactly shocking as the image of a man with a striped shirt and red scarf paddling a gondola through the tight canals has been emblazoned on the cover of countless “vacation in Europe” travel guides. What Venice is missing ... Read More »

His Take: Plitvice Lakes, Out of the Way and Overrated

His Take: Plitvice Lakes, Out of the Way and Overrated

Before Jamie and I made the trek to Croatia, we had heard from scores of various people about this place called Plitvice Lakes. Apparently, it was otherworldy. “Like, straight out of Avatar,” one guy told us. I had even seen Plitvice on a list of “Top 10 Places to Visit Before You Die.” There must be far too many people ...

His Take: Cheap Gourmet Tacos at Grand Electric

His Take: Cheap Gourmet Tacos at Grand Electric

It’s always hard to tell what you’re going to get with so called “trendy restaurants.” Often there’s a ton of hype, a huge line, snooty service, and $30 later I’ll be looking for a cheap slice of pizza around the corner to really fill me up. On the other hand you can get places like Grand Electric opening shop, taking ... Read More »

His Take: Cypress Mountain, Best of the Vancouver Locals

His Take: Cypress Mountain, Best of the Vancouver Locals

I’ll just go out and say it, Vancouver is probably my favorite city on the planet. On a sunny day, I don’t think that there’s many people who would disagree with me. But it’s not just the city, it’s the lifestyle. I think my sister’s boyfriend said it best, “Vancouver is where people do whatever makes them happy, and everyone ... Read More »

His Take: Cliff Jumping in the Okanagan

His Take: Cliff Jumping in the Okanagan

There are few pleasures in this world that deliver as much of a rush as cliff diving. I don’t know what the difference is about leaping from a pure rock face when in comparison with a diving board that may be just as high, but the rock face wins every time. Perhaps it’s that a diving board suggests that you ... Read More »
