It’s kind of like a stadium-sized potluck.

No where else can you eat cereal made with dandelion and hemp seeds, a blue corn taco with B.C. spot prawns and avocado cream or a summer treat invented by husband/wife doctors. Not to mention learn to make the perfect caesar or receive a cooking lesson from an Iron Chef. Welcome to Eat! Vancouver Food + Cooking Festival taking place at B.C. Place Stadium May 30-June 1.

As we mentioned earlier this month, Eat! has a packed agenda, including their ever-awesome 250 plus exhibitors.

It looks like downtown Vancouver may be getting an injection of L.A.-style glitz.

A gleaming new “entertainment-focused urban resort,” roughly modelled after the L.A. Live complex around Los Angeles’ Staples Center, has been proposed for the area surrounding B.C. Place stadium, according to an article in the Vancouver Sun.

Occupying several city blocks, the $535-million, 675,000-square-foot complex proposed by Paragon Gaming Corp. will feature two new hotels, conference space and stores and will be the new home of the Edgewater Casino, currently housed in the Plaza of Nations building. Continue reading:
