What the Hell Does One Do in North Vancouver?

Seriously Grant. Hike Lynn Canyon. It's right next to the city.

Pie! http://www.yelp.com/biz/vancouver-pie-co…

Even better after a hike, but not required.
3
or, you know, you could just, like, kick it.
4
Eat Persian food.
5
Take the scenic North Ferry back and forth a bit.
6
Or hike the cable pools below Capilano dam. Then go to the Edgemont Village for brunch. Then to Lynn Canyon for a swim (beautiful but cold). Then to one of the great Greek restaurants on Marine Drive. Then to a pub like the Queen's Cross for beer.
7
Hike or take the gondola to the top of Grouse Mountain. It's like seeing Vansterdam from an airplane--the views are phenomenal.
8
I'd head over to Yaletown and down some whiskeys at Blue Water Cafe.
9
Americans go to the Capilano suspension bridge, but it's a rip. I'd drive up to Grouse and go for a hike or drive up to Horseshoe Bay, grab a beer and watch the ferries.
10
There is a water taxi to downtown or you could grab something to eat at the Quay.

i make fun of your earnestness from time to time (Good Morning Charles schtick). as if my opinion matters, i think you're a good egg. even if Grant has already done that hike you mention, coming from you, I think he'd have fun doing it again.
my suggestion: i've never been but wherever they hold the "Under The Volcano" festival would be where I'd go. The unstoppable amazing fuck all ya author of that book and others, such good Literature. Maybe even drink yourself to death, Grant.

That mining museum.
13
Hike Seymour, take the seabus to Gastown for food and drink.
14
The mining museum is in Brittania. If you're driving 45 minutes there, you have to go to the Mountain Woman - great burgers.

Since it hasn't been mentioned yet, Divan Kitchen (Turkish).
18
Grouse Mountain for sure.
19
Alibi Room for brunch and beer.
20
North Vancouver or Oklahoma City suburban mall area- nothing to see there.
One should scurry on down to Hastings to partake of the many happening bars. Then, write a column about the whole experience. Leave copious notes, just in case.

Second Presentation House Gallery.

Mtn bike! Then Grouse mountain & dinner at Star Anise
23
Skinny dipping in the Capalono river (if you wait until Aug.).

Sailing at West Van. Yacht Club is pretty awesome, you could always head that way with beer and a smile.
24
The Windows 95 desktop clouds are prettier than those in Grant's picture. Does anyone, Paul Constant, know of an app I can download to get cloud info - nomenclature, aesthetic stats, fluffiness?
