Easter Around Vancouver

What’s Up for Easter Around Vancouver??

We’re staying in town this weekend and I think the theme will be more spring cleaning than bunny hopping, but we’ll likely at least get a brunch in and Tess, Michael and I will be boozing it up on Saturday night at BC Distilled. I mean tasting and evaluation some local spirits. We’ll also be checking out the newest Greek Restaurant in the city – Nammos Estiatorio, I’m thinking there will be some octopus, dolmades and tarama on my plate soon.  However, we will fit in at least a few Easter festivities and think you should too. Here’s what’s up for Easter Around Vancouver.
