What to say… I have a bit of a love affair with my hometown which is where this blog is based. Us Vancouverites tend to be a bit smug as we casually talk about last weekend when “I just couldn’t decide whether to play golf or ski… ” We have some of the best food in the world at the best prices in the world – and have recently attracted several celebrity chefs – take that NY! We also have a dark side, with high priced real estate that can make our city a place for the rich, while those that toil live further afield… After all, you can’t eat the mountains.
We like to call ourselves Hollywood North and are a bit of a joke on shows like Entourage where uber agent Ari Gold dismissively talks about things being shot in “vancouver…” – aka instant B List movie and you are a B list celebrity for even considering shooting in Vancouver. But we hosted the X Files for years while David Duchovny got soggy and grumpy. Oh and in case you haven’t heard – the skiers are coming next year and we are all getting very excited about the road closures! 🙂
Our dear city will take centre stage on this blog as I live right in the heart of it and consider it my “room”. Here are a few Vancouver pics to get you acquainted:
