Bridges!

If you have been in Vancouver for long enough, you must have at least heard about Capilano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver. It is one of the main North Shore tourist destinations. I have been there once in early 2009, and was somewhat impressed. The view from the bridge is breathtaking, and the tree-top adventure is pretty cool – it made me feel so tiny in comparison to the surrounding environment. The place is very crowded though (I was there on a Saturday, during Summer – not the best choice), and there were traffic jams all over the route. The prices are fairly steep, with $31.95 for a GeneralĀ Admission, $25.95 for students, $19.95 for Youth (13-16), and $12 for 6-12 year olds (kids under 6 getĀ in for free). Also, do not forget to add HST (or, soon-to be GST/PST again [edit: already GST/PST as of Apr. 2013]) on top of that.

Late Night Munchies, or a $100 Hot Dog

After a night out – clubbing, drinking or twister at your grandma’s (it is wrong, unless you are Swedish), people tend to get the feeling of hunger, which is commonly referred to as “munchies”. I prefer donairs – my favourite place is Donair Dude on Davie, mainly for their gigantic portions for funny prices, and very friendly staff; but many prefer pizza and hot dogs over, I guess, due to their mass availability.

Birthday things

Screen Shot 2013-03-19 at 3.28.28 PMSome companies in Vancouver want your business so much they are nice enough to give you free stuff for your birthday. Some things are free if you show your ID, others require preparation and coupon clipping, so it is better to have a look in advance. Free latte, cakes, movie tickets and etc – all listed in this lovely guide by groceryalerts.ca.
