We had a really great time!
Most of my posts about the weekend are over on SpyGirl.
I'm covering my Vancouver food experiences here on the Glutton.

That was OK. I was a little under the weather from eating one too many fig bars on the drive up.
I opted for chicken soup up in my room, ordered from the Blue Horizon's inhouse restaurant, Abode.
Our lobby call was for 10:00, to gather before embarking for some coffee and shopping on Granville Island. On Granville, our meetup spot was Blue Parrot Coffee.

Beautiful displays of fresh fruits:
Next, Louisa, Pat, and I went over to the Gastown district and had some nibbles at Purebread.
I had this pizza bruschetta thingie:
I posted my dessert over on my Dessert Safari blog. Yes, eventually you will visit all my blogs.
After an exhaustive exploration of the sewing emporium Dressew, Pat and I ambled back to the Hotel for the group clothing swap. Find that on SpyGirl soon.
Next on the agenda -- dinner!
We gathered at Earl's one block down the street.

|I made a wise choice: Field Greens + Fennel Salad with|
Apples, grapes, spiced candied pecans, in champagne vinaigrette
I DO regret not ordering the Sticky Pudding. I got a meh ice cream sundae for dessert.
Sunday, another 10am lobby call and then a stroll to Forage.
I opted for the Two Rivers turkey sausage hash etc. Delicious.
