My favourite long weekend of the year.
I love the fall. The rain, the earthy smell of the city, the leaves, the wind! I love all the cozy evenings cuddled up under a thick blanket. Oh blanket buddy where are you?! The skating, the hockey and all those noisy kids back at school finally!
Around 8 pm last night Junior and I went for a walk up Denman Street. It was raining and I expected all to be quiet in the West End.
The Dover had their regular house/cover band going strong and everyone in the Pub was all smiles and boozy-happy despite the rain. Vancouverites dont let a little rain/windstorm stop the fun! Junior and I continued on down the other side of Denman heading towards those potatoes … as we passed by Central Bistro the windows had that rainy, hazy candlelight glow and the sounds of a local jazz band playing. I was tempted to throw some jeans on Junior and sneak him in for a blueberry tea or ten… but we pushed on with a very specific destination in mind. Potatoes!
But before we could get to the potatoes, the sound of Flamenco music at Dulcinea stopped us again. I love my neighbourhood!
Im telling you, Denman had it going on on this rainy Sunday! The street was alive with flushed faces and music and strollers and doggies – it was wonderful!
The whole point of our walk was to go to Mr. Kumpir for the second time this weekend! I love this place and recommend it wholeheartedly. For $3.99 you find yourself with a full meal in a potato! They have about 50 toppings and you get three choices for your $3.99.
I know what you are thinking. Potatoes.
Just go there. Do it. These things taste so yummy, beyond all logical explanation …
Just do it.
Because I said so and I am often right. =)
