a peak experience

We’d never put much thought into what made soft serve ice cream soft til we heard that Soft Peaks was opening in Gastown. Soft Peaks whips up (literally) soft serve ice cream using organic milk from Avalon Dairy, has less sugar than most ice cream and only a small percentage of the stabilizers – most of which are organic – that go into conventional soft serve.

vancouver: kid & family friendly events

It’s time for another winter weekend in the rainy Lower Mainland. But don’t let a little mist and few droplets keep you inside! Join wintery walks in Lynn Canyon or Stanley Park and discover local birds, or check out the Vancouver International Boat Show. If you’d rather stay dry, head over to BC Place for more boats; discover the Honu (sea turtle) at the Aquarium; or check out fun science and literacy activities at Science World. Vive les Voyagers is happening in Fort Langley – and this French Canadian celebration is always worth the drive. MORE

best baking

When Bâtard Boulangerie & Cafe Moderne opened early in January on the same block of Fraser Street as Earnest Ice Cream and Graze, the neighbourhood rejoiced. The area has long needed a bread-focused bakery, and when that bakery is the joint project of Chris Brown of Rise Artisan Bakery, and Bruno and Sally Born – and their daughter Elsie – of Finest at Sea, so much the better.

fair fishing

If you resolved to eat better this year, why not think more fish and less meat? And if you’re thinking local and sustainable when it comes to seafood, then you’ll definitely want to check out Skipper Otto’s Community Supported Fishery. Just like a CSA, but for fish, this fishtastic business has changed our family’s fish eating habits for the better. MORE

vancouver: kid & family friendly events

Well, the holidays are over, and we’re all settling back into our regular routine. It’s a great weekend to get off the couch and head out for skiing, skating or other winter sports and …. well … burn off a few lingering cookie and eggnog calories. There’s also Persian music, movies, a puzzle contest, and art activities to explore. Also, check out a special fundraiser at Hennessey Salon & Spa to help kids with cancer. MORE

reduce, reuse, recharge

The New Year is here, and it’s time to clear out the dead wood quite literally … (we’re looking at you Christmas tree!). Now that the excesses of the holidays are behind us, we’re cleaning house starting with chipping the tree and donating unneeded children’s clothing and toys. MORE
