Investigated Gastown. Went to the awesome fabric store called DressSew, didn't buy anything but it has fun looking at all the colors of zippers, elastic, ribbon, and buttons.
Went to La Brasserie for dinner, DH had steak frites, he's so predictable, I had trout cheeks. Very flaky and tender! We each had 2 macroons for dessert. Pistachio was the favorite!
