Neil is spoiling me again. Tonight we went out to check out of some of the restaurants in his neighbourhood. Neil lives in the area known as Davie Village, which he says is Vancouver's Gayborhood. Not sure what that's all about, but everyone is so friendly. Even the guys hold hands out here! LOL Anyway, think of Davie Street as being like Queen West in Toronto, which has so many good restaurants. We found a Greek place called Stephos. But there was a line-up on the sidewalk, in the rain. I took that as a good sign. If people were willing to stand in the rain to get in, then so was I. It took about 25 minutes but we got in and got a table. I don't know what the appetizers were, but Neil said not to worry. He was right. They were awesome. Something with cheese, and spinach and philo dough. I wasn't sure what to order, but the waiter said the roast lamb entree was popular. So I ordered it. After enjoying some Greek wine, the waiter brought out a slab of roast lamb the size of a small dog! It was amazing. Potatoes, rice, vegetables, greek salad and roast all for $9.95! No wonder there are line-ups. After supper, we walked home and dropped by the English Bay beach area. It was a bit overcast, but still nice to see the ocean. Then Neil found a liquor store. Eight oclock on Labour Day evening and we bought Scotch and Beer! You can't do THAT in Ontario. Tommorow is a new day. Going to Seattle.
