The Alibi Room in Gastown has a ton of beers on tap if you don't want to hop from place to place and just enjoy a whole bunch of local (and imported) goodness from one spot.

50 taps going, pretty hipsterish and good food. I haven't been there in a while though.

edit edit: seems like there's a ton of places i need to check out around here. I'm usually a lager or stout kinda guy not huge on the IPAs though

Why wait until the afternoon?

If you have to wait go for a walk around Stanley Park?

Go to Van Dusen gardens for Christmas fun type stuff?

Robson Street for shopping?

Check out The Drive for hippy goodness? Commercial drive in East Van.

Go to numerous coffee shops..Revolver, Matchstick, Parallel 49, Bump and Grind (on the drive).

Meat and Bread for a tasty lunch. Revolver is very near Meat and Bread.

Hike Dog Mountain on Seymour for a great view of the city.

Lol. I hope the Sky train which goes underground doesn't break....

Head to the Evergreen and check out Twin Sails, Yellow Dog, Parkside, and Moody Ales!

Or go to the drive! I recommend The Cannibal Cafe on the drive for dinner but only if you are headed there.

Got beers with Mark last night, had a great time, meeting up with Amar later today.

Vancouver is a real cool place, I'm glad we took the time to come up

Yeah scheduling wasn't ideal obviously, never got together with Amar either, but I'm pretty sure I need to bring the wife up here someday.

Y'all have a pretty cool town, Stanley park alone is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

Guys (and gals).

A local 240 nut (nicest guy you'd ever meet) passed away a couple of weeks ago. His family didn't want to sell his parts collection individually. I bought the lot, without really looking through everything. I'm just looking to keep this stuff local for now. If you're looking for 240 parts, let me know. My parents are up this way for christmas, and could probably bring stuff back down to the lower mainland/interior between christmas and new years.

Some of the more notable parts are

28mm drop sway bar
16V head
2xK cams
1xA cam
1xB cam
LH 2.4 flywheel w/clutch
Perfect black leather front seats and rear seats (for a 244).
a garrett turbo that needs a rebuild
all sorts of maintenance stuff.
Rear glass for a 245 with flush tailgate....
Piles of ECU's
Piles of MAF's.
Nice floor trays.
sedan and wagon lights
As I unload (up to 3 truck loads of parts already) I'm making a list of stuff that's here.

PM me if you are interested in anything. Can sort something out.

That is probably what I'm going to do.

It will be a huge list.

Condolences on the loss of your friend Jordan.

Good for you for taking care of the parts hoard. I sometimes
think about what would happen to mine were I to experience an
untimely passing.

I'd hope that one of the local guys would be willing to come and
muck it out, and I'd want them to make some money for their
trouble. I'm sure the family appreciates your efforts.

Thanks.

I've had the same thoughts. I've told the wife to use a chunk of my life insurance to pay someone to finish my 242, then store it for the kids. He was quite young- 38. I'm not far away from that.
