Eating the food of chefs you respect is always a humbling experience. This week has been particularly awesome. Tonight, I had the honor and privilege to sample the fare of @chefbrookew and @hudsonhousebar. Her food is delicious, approachable, and sexy. And the staff was warm and friendly without being overbearing. It sucked being on a budget tonight because I wanted everything on the menu. But I’ll be back next time I’m in Cali!

Gazing out & around Gastown — ever get that feeling you’re being watched? ... “Better to be looked over than overlooked.” ~ Mae West. #maewestquote — Gastown‘s faces of yesterday embedded in its heritage buildings at the location of the original townsite of GRANVILLE or “Luck-Lucky” (Native namesake by indigenous peoples for the fragile settlement full of promises) HUDSON HOUSE ... the original Hudson’s Bay for an early frontier town, emerged in fortified brick, stone & mortar because the perilous mill-town, a shantytown of wooden shacks strung along a ramshackle mucky muck on the edge of nowhere, went up in flames 🔥. See, when the brand new City of Vancouver (1886) no sooner announced itself to the world it had a routine brush fire to clear the clearcut logging debris — and well, things got out of hand ... it was a hot dry summer’s day, the wind whipped up and it took off ... & took out most of the City’s centre ... Here one day, then gone the next. Talk about making a scene! Optimism & faith in the future rebuilt everything again ... so like a phoenix rising from its own ashes, it would grow stronger. REBIRTH - REBUILD - RENEWED ♻️ Life Cycle.
Vancouver’s contradiction is it’s one of the youngest incorporated cities in the region yet it outstripped them all —- so now the older places are merely its suburban satellites. Makes you wonder what stories these stony faces could tell us of the things they’ve witnessed in 125+ years ... #hertiagevancouver#vancouverhistory#vancouverhistorywalks#gastown#mygastown#hudsonhouse#gastownvancouver#waterstreetvancouver#vancouverarchitecture#vancouverheritage#smallstudiodesign

Works progressing nicely at Hudson House, discovered a complete re-wire was needed to rectify shoddy and very dangerous works by cowboy electricians. Be weary of the cheapest quotes, Electricians can sign off and give certificates for their own own work. So always have their work checked by an independent certified body or get an NICEIC Electrical Certificate check, a good way to spend £100. #hudsonhouse#IndependentPropertySolutions#ipsinc#ipslimited#hudsonhouseips#licklimited
Ni önskade att få se mer filmer från bygget så fram tills lunch imorgon kan ni hänga med på Insta stories och se hur det ser ut inne. ☺️ Får kalla det Modern rundvisning för nära, kära och nyfikna som inte bor i närheten. 🍂
OCH missar ni händelser eller vill kika i efterhand så samlar jag mina favoriter från händelser i ”höjdpunkter” - (tryck på de små runda bilderna i profilen så kommer de fram filmer) -
