It’s hard living in Vancouver and not having an issue with Yaletown. We’ve blogged about some of the great stuff there like Goldfish, The Hamilton Street Grill, Phat and Elfsar Comics, but parking is a bitch and at night the area turns into the sort of meat market that few people would feel beautiful enough feel as if they fit into.
Again though there’s still some great stuff, including a whole host of cool bakeries, coffee shops and of course the best comic book store in the city in Elfsar. (Full disclosure of vested interests I work on a very part time basis at Elfsar. They however are not paying me for the mention, and I was a regular customer for a year before being hired). If you’ve not really checked Yaletown recently they’re having the latest in a series of summer block parties tomorrow (Friday August 8th) and the next day (Saturday August 9th) [ytbia].
The Yaletown Business Improvement Association’s website hasn’t yet really gone into detail about what’s going on, not having updated their site since June apparently, but a number of the store, banks and resturants will be having special sales. I had to go from a Facebook posting from Elfsar for any information on what other business were doing and that’s below the jump.
