  1. I'm going to be in town right when this event is wrapping up and it would be nice to take advantage of this promotion. I'm hoping someone can recommend a few restaurants participating in this event that would be suitable for a group of gals in their 20-30's in town for a girls weekend (there are 7 of us). We're staying in the Ocean Beach/Point Loma area, and I don't think we'll be taking the car that night (Friday), so someplace within a short cab ride would be ideal. Thanks in advance for your help.
  2. Well I didn't have much luck on the shopping front, but I certainly ate well over the weekend. On Friday night I went to Pok Pok for dinner and managed to save a bit of room for dessert at Pix. Saturday night I had pre-dinner cocktails at Teardrop Lounge & District, and then from there I headed over to Andina for some tapas. Last but not least, I went to Clyde Common for a light meal on Sunday night. All of these places were vastly different, but I enjoyed each of them in their own way. I also stumbled upon the Portland Farmers Market on Saturday morning. What a wonderful place! You guys are very lucky indeed :-)
  3. I'm going to be in Portland this weekend and would love to get some recommendations for places that are solo diner friendly. I'm thinking of cozying up to the bar at Andina one night, and then for night two, I'm looking for something else that is uniquely Portland. I'm staying downtown, but don't mind driving out of the way for a good meal. Thanks!
  4. We're going to be down in Seattle in a few weeks and want to try going to Tavolta on a Sat. night, but it looks like a pretty busy place! Since they don't take reservations, I'm hoping to get a few suggestions for a back-up in case we are sol. Something lively, with good food and in the same area would be ideal. Can't wait to get down there! Cheers, Scout
  5. Just wondering if there's anything new in the area worth checking out. We'll be staying in Bellevue for 1 night this Saturday and would like to find a nice place to take my friend out for her birthday. We're staying right near Bellevue Square (Marriott Courtyard), so it would be a bonus if we could find something walking distance from the hotel. Thanks, Scout
  6. Does anyone know which restaurants are extending the dates for DOV?
  7. Try the IGA Marketplace on Burrard St. I have seen the coffee and filters there before (in the International Foods aisle), but that was probably a good 6 months ago.
  8. Just wanted to thank everyone for all of the suggestions. There's a few in there I had not heard of before. I'm keeping my fingers crossed my pal will invite me along for some 'cake testing' soon.
  9. A girlfriend of mine is getting married in January and wanted to get some recommendations for places to get a wedding cake. Any suggestions you could send along would be appreciated. The wedding is on the small side – approx. 20-30 people. She’s looking for something unique, but not too ornate, and most important, it must taste good. Thanks, Scout
  10. Walking home today I noticed another location of Mui Garden is opening up on Robson St. where the Public Market is. Entrance will be directly from street level, rather than from inside the market. While I'm talking about Robson St., does anyone have the scoop on what's going in where Hooters used to be? There's been a leased sign up for at least a month now.
  11. It's a bit of work, but if anyone wanted to catch the piece last night, you can get it from CTV's website. The giant burger story starts at about 51 minutes into the show and the burger poll results are around the 54 minute mark. http://www.ctv9.ca/streamnews.jsp?id=/news...eaming_news.htm
  12. Usually I like just butter, salt and pepper. However, the last time I made popcorn, I added a bit of pesto sauce to the melted butter and it turned out really tasty.
  13. Went by today and there's now a sign on the door which says they're opening May 9.
  14. Hi All: I'm off to Vegas in a few weeks and would love to find out if there are any good Mexican restaurants on the Strip. Ideally we're looking for a place that is within a short walking distance from Caesar's.
  15. Seeing that Godiva's is airing on Bravo, it wouldn't have been produced by CTV. Shamless plug, I think not.
