Back to the mall


Metropolis at Metrotown

Originally uploaded by The BH.

I was trying to think of an elaborate Back to the Future parody post to sum up my return to working in Metrotown, but I couldn’t think of anything particularly clever. Instead I’ll just say, “Hey I’m back working at Metrotown.”

Which so far is novel once again. The food court options are exciting (“Oh look it’s hot dogs!”), the shopping options are nice for my break and it’s good working in a place where I don’t have to run to the Hotel Vancouver each time I need to pee. It’s also nice to once again be commuting against the tide, moving away from downtown out to Burnaby while everyone else is going to the office.

Having said that the mall will eventually be the death of me. I know this now, it has been written.

    This reminds me of a comical post you wrote some time ago about never having to see the outdoors what with Skytrain practically directly from home to work then spending all day in the crazy world that is Metropolis. Indeed, that monstrous mall could be a sort of study on the dynamics of a world. =P

    Actually Metrotown has a great food court. Look past the hot dogs for Roasty Jack (for a yummy roast beef, roast chicken or roast turkey dinner), Opa! (fantastic Greek food), Nando’s (awesome bbq chicken), and the best deal coming in at less than $4 including tax – naan wrap with butter chicken and rice from Curry Express.

    I could eat there every day!
