Only one week until we leave on the cruise. I’ve almost got all the orders that I need to ship before we set sale done, but I’m nervous I’m going to forget something on the vacation side of things. So I’m asking you guys if you have any reminders of things I may want to take on a cruise and then a drive from Vancouver to Seattle. The cruise leaves from LA goes up the cost stops in Catalina, San Fran, Victoria and Vancouver. If any of you have been on this cruise or gone to these places let me know if there’s anything I shouldn’t miss.
As is normal with our vacations, we’ll be hitting all the thrift stores and record stores looking for vintage patterns and obscure LP’s for the music maker as we drive (if you know of any send them my way). We’ll have more flexibility in Vancouver and Seattle too so I was wondering if any of you guys know any good local dives, like not too pricey eateries in Vancouver or Seattle?

What do you like to eat?
I’m not from the area (understatement of the year), but I was on vacation in Vancouver, Seattle and San francisco two years ago (exactly 2 years ago). It was fun fun fun!!!!
In vancouver there’s a cute place called “the wild garlic bistro” which was very nice if you like garlic. Vancouver is filled with Japanese, chinese and the likes and it’s all great and not very pricey. There’s also a place called “the elbow room” that has nice breakfasts with a very “unpolitically correct” additude.
Also, ther’s a place called “O’doul’s” which is a hotel and their restaurant have the best eggs benedict I have ever eaten. It is pricey though.
In Seattle we visited family, so we didn’t eat a lot outside but I remember good places in chinatown and a very good french patissary(sp?) very close to pike market. Oh, and a great Thai place in the U-district.
You can email me if you need address for any of the suggestions.

Oh Vancouver! These are the 2 must-trys: Landmark Hotpot House (4023 Cambie St., Vancouver) and Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant (3888 Main St., Vancouver) – their Alaskan king crab dinner cooked in 3 styles! Have fun!
I second Sun Sui Wah.. their dim sum is freaking amazing. and cheap! I just went for dim sum the other day and it was amazing as always.
Plus then you’ll be on main street with all the awesome vintage stores.
