    European Delicatessen at Davie and Bute in Vancouver's Davie Village - Buy their Persian flat bread, warm it in the oven at home and dip it in their hummus, which is the best you will ever eat. A destination unto itself.

    Donald's Market - Best Independent Grocery Store in Vancouver | Grocery and Organic Products - beats Whole Foods hands down. Mind you, the quality of their fresh meat is so-so. Everything else is fabulous! Free, but limited, street parking. Carmen works at the Hastings Street location...once you tell her your name she always remembers it. Really. She literally knows thousands of customer names. It's freaky.

    Downtown Costco - tired of schlepping to the burbs for your Costco fix? Borders Vancouver's International Village, Downtown, and Yaletown...with cheap underground parking ($2 for 2 hours). It is far less busy than your typical Costco, especially on a weekday evening. Great selection and it's on the Skytrain line. Costco-filled prescriptions are the cheapest in the city, and you don't need to be a member to use the pharmacy. What more do you need?

    The Orpheum | Home of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Every seat is a good seat and the venue is stunning. Was at the June 14, 2014 VSO's 95th anniversary season finale concert with James Ehnes and Maestro Bramwell Tovey. Performances - Britten Peter Grimes: Passacaglia, Elgar Violin Concerto in B minor, Berlioz Roman Carnival: Overture, Respighi Pines of Rome. My favourite VSO night so far.

    Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden - “Canadian Garden Tourism Garden of the Year 2012” awarded by Canadian Garden Tourism Council, in consultation with a Canadian and international jury network. A world-class garden and a significant cultural heritage. Also the “World’s Top City Garden”, recently named by National Geographic. For me...a surprising oasis of tranquility in Vancouver's urban center. The free section is good, the paid is worth it. Only $35 for a year membership.
