Hockey and an anniversary
we'll be up in Vancouver Friday and Saturday from Seattle, any recommendations where to watch the game near the Westin Grand downtown? I am also looking for a place for our anniversary Saturday night, leaning toward a more European or northwest meal than Asian, again any recommendation
I assume you want to watch the game on tv vs live? It depends on what kind of viewing experience you want. There are a couple of outdoor venues for the public to watch (no food no beverages but great local energy). If you are thinking of a bar/pub every place in town that has a bar will have wide screen tvs (or pretty darn close). The last couple of games have taken the fever down a notch alas but you would need to get anywhere fairly early to get a good seat. Perhaps right in the hotel bar would work.
As for dinner a quick search will turn up many good choices such as Le Crocodile, Cioppino's etc. but there is a newly opened restaurant with a highly respected chef that has already got great comments: http://www.hawksworthrestaurant.com/m... . Very local cuisine in a very nice setting -newly renovated heritage hotel in the downtown core. I'd check it out if I was looking for something special.
