    So I'm heading to Vancouver on Wed. for 5 days. What should I do? Where should I go? Where should I eat? I'm sure there's a ton of you guys who've been there, and a handful who actually call the city home. Give me some advice

    You want to stay downtown if possible. Closer to the ocean is best.
    Robson Street is the happening place. I havent been there in a couple of years and didn't do any partying but I hope that helps.

    Whiterock is awesome, and full of rich people to abuse.

    I think it's more of a suburb, though.....

    why the fuck is everyone telling him to hang out on robson? so he can go to banana republic , foot locker, guess, or any of the other many exotic stores they dont have where he's from? theres a few things to see, but its largely a tourist trap. its not like he needs to be pointed that way. If your old enough to hit up some clubs you wont find anything out that way worth going to.
    take a look at http://www.georgiastraight.com for any upcoming concerts, and a listing of all the club nights.

    tell me what your looking for, maybe I can steer you somewhere. oh, and get an umbrella. you'll need it.

    I'm definately staying downtown, somewhere directly east of the University I believe. Here's some stuff I'd definately be interested in checking out if you guys know where it would be at.

    -Good Sushi/Seafood (I know there's lots, but what are your favorites)
    -Import Electronics Store (this is a stretch)
    -Snowboard Shop (skate shop works too)
    -Contemp. Arts Stuff
    -Some other amazing type of food I have to check out
    -Anything else you thought was cool

    I know I could get most of this info anywhere else on the net, but I'm sure whatever you come up with has the possibility of being much cooler. Great advice so far

    We've got some good sushi here.
    Don't be a trendy freak and hit Robson st, although they do have some nice sushi bars on Robson.
    West 4th is good for skate/snowboard stores.
    If you want to paint just jump on the skytrain(metro) and follow that-just keep looking out the windows and you'll see some spots.
    Misanthropy(gallery) is having show this week-) misanthropygallery.com. Last week they had some pretty decent writers stuff there.
    Pick up a Georgia Straight-it's the local free"what to do"paper
    If you arrive on wednesday night maybe hit the freestyle battles at club Sonar at 66 Water st. in gastown(kind of the old heritage part of town)
    Thursday hit a local pub(maybe the King's head in Kits, because you'll be close to there and the food is cheap and good) and watch the Canuck's play. Root for Detroit!!!!
    Also if you're into some 'high' times go to blunt brothers on Hastings for an amsterdam adventure.
    Hopefully this helps give you some stuff to do....

    If you're looking at painting here email me at wheresthegspot@hotmail.com and we'll see what my schedule is like.
    I'm normally pretty busy but my bag of rattlers is always ready.
