Today is the annual Christmas pot luck at work. Unfortunately since my husband was unable to slave away making a tuna pasta salad for me to bring in this year, I stopped off at a grocery store downtown before coming in. I decided to duck into the new IGA Marketplace on Robson and Richards. It seems decent enough and sells lots of organic products with a heart-stoppingly good looking deli but its prices are what you’d expect for downtown (meaning, also heart-stopping but in a bad way). It’s pretty cramped in there so I would advise against doing any big grocery orders, two carts would barely be able to pass each other in an aisle. Watch for Homesense opening up above the IGA in the weeks ahead as well.
Here’s what’s making headlines in my world this morning:
It seems like we’re two of maybe 4 people we know who are staying in town for the holidays. We’re gonna make sure to get in a twonie skate at the community centre, other than that… we’ll just be out in Surrey. For all those not going anywhere or jetting to far off places, what will you be doing in town this Christmas or for New Years? Any favourite Vancouver holiday activities or traditions?
