Thx corn. Getting pretty stoked for next year already lol.

I'm coming back to van this week and am wondering where the fuck to eat now. Any suggestions? I want to hit some dim sum maybe chinatown and if Gigis pizza on broadway is still there I'll snag one. I've been away for almost 20 years has it changed much lol?

Dan, just my 2 cents for someone who's not visited Vancity in 20 years. Stay the fuck away from Chinatown.

First, it's no longer Chinatown. It's dead. With no real Chinese businesses (restaurants, shops, etc.). It's been gentrified and if you want to eat in over-priced, pretentious crap in hipster-run joints... then it's for you.

Second, remember that Gastown is situated on one side, Chinatown on the other... in between? Famous Skid Row. But because the government has no money to keep people in the psychiatric wards, guess where they are running around... without their meds? Hard-core druggies, the schizos... and the walking dead all running around yelling randomly and looking for your change. And brains. But you should be safe. Kidding!

Personally, I think Pink Pearl dim sum has been crap for years and it's not far enough away from the chaos I just described. When a dim sum place has more white people than yellow-face... yeah, sorry.

Unless you want to head out to Richmond (ie. Hongcouver) for real good and authentic dimsum and dodging really bad drivers, you might want to try these:

1. Pelican Restaurant (Not the On Lok you were thinking of, but on Hastings & Victoria. Close to Pink Pearl but far enough away from the war zone) - 1895 East Hastings St.

2. 1886 Parq Vancouver - http://www.parqvancouver.com/restaurants/1886-2/ (All you can eat. Weekends only & requires reservations. Really fancy, so they probably won't let you in. Also, you probably don't have $38.88 anyway... kidding :mrgreen: )

Gigi's on Broadway... OMG, that place is still there. The sign with the shooting flames. Still working. Exactly the same. I had my first slice of pizza in my entire life there... as a kid in the late 70's. Every time I walk by there, I smile and I think to myself, "What a fucking dump".

I don't know if the pizza is still good, if it was ever good, but I should go back there one day just to relive my childhood.

You're going to love Vancity 2018 edition. You're almost expected to fire up and smoke a doobie in public. If you can't smell the second-hand weed, you're doing Van wrong.

Oh yeah. You're welcome! ;) :lol:
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

Holy fuck what a response! Thanks man. Oh dont worry about coin...i work in the oilsands and usually make out pretty well barely working 8 months a year. I love to rock the hippy doo and it definitely closes doors for me but good thing theyre the doors i want closed. I hate fake suits and conservative baloney

Chinatown was always shithole. I worked for a chinese owned electrical contractor all over there in the early 90s. I worked in cockroach infested boat people housing and in weird old chinese mens clubs with odd 1800s english colony names like diocesese club and chinese benevolent society. All thats gone? There used to be a pretty fair dim sum upstairs somewhere down there. I was usually the only round eye in them. Yummy yummy... chicken feet.

Gigis was always a damn good feed. Especially for stoners wanting to grease the burnout away. I think I'll hit that one too if its half as good as it was i bet its wicked. Remember i live on a farm in the middle of bumfuck alberta...we dont eat out its all garbage. Unless we go to edmonton or cowgrease i guess

So whats the deal with the weed stores? Everyone says theyre everywhere and i have to see this lol

I was going to say Pink Pearl as well, but guess it's not up to Hank's standards. *hehe*

Happy Valley is pretty good for dim sum imo.

If you can get out to Richmond, I hear there are lots of good places for chinese/dim sum.

For pizza, there are tons all over the place, prob a couple in every busy retail street. Some of the big chains are pretty good (ie: Pizza Hut, Dominos, Boston Pizza). Boston Pizza is prob my fave for the big name ones (great place to watch a game too). For smaller, I'd suggest:

http://www.natspizza.com/

I think it's Ryan Reynold's fave pizza joint. If you go to the one in Kits, they have some Canuck memorabilia (stuff from Luongo/Linden years).

Sushi/Japanese and Pho noodles are pretty big in Van-city as well. I suggest you give em a try if you get a chance, tons of nice places to try.

WTF, guys!? What's next, a step by step guide on where UDL should go to wash his shit stained underwear after eating too much fucking dim sum? Jeeesus

This fucking thread is called 'Canucks Young Guns', i don't know for sure, but im kinda thinking that that is the topic that posters are anticipating reading about when they take the time to come here. I know its off season, but mods, really? Maybe take the vacation/restaurant guide to another thread like the 'bar and grill'?

There are many aspects of the upcoming season I am looking forward to watching.
Sure, I want to see the new recruits but for me, I want to see Boeser absolutely light it up and potentially put up 80+++points.

By the way, Dan. If you want to really light into something basic that you had forgotten how good it could be;
Try Five Guys, in South Surrey or down town Van.

Easy there, nuckster...

Like peeps said, it's summer. And nobody spoke up when there were constant derailments of guzzling, cultish behaviours, trump supporting and oh-ma-gawd, whining... ad-nauseum?

Just trying to help out the old Alberta pot-head so he doesn't end up on a chinese menu himself.

Is all good mate, everyone carry on here. (Sorry, need one of these... :D )

As a Mod, I'll say "It's summer - chill out, relax and let the threads derail a little."

As long as it stays civil, the derailments will continue.

If you're not into conversation, it be a good idea to go outside for the day and get some fresh air.
