It happens but once a year: that day when kids are not only allowed but encouraged to eat pure chocolate for breakfast. There’s fun for adults too…the whole family, in fact, at the Easter brunch buffets that take place around town.

Here are five with extensive options that will please both kids and adults–whether the latter want to slurp oysters or secretly just want to eat multiple desserts for breakfast, too.

All of the following brunch buffets take place on Easter Sunday (April 5); be sure to make reservations, and come hungry. (You have been officially warned not to fill up on chocolate eggs!)

Winter Wonderland 1,000 Feet Above Vancouver: Peak of Christmas Returns

ddi131211_gmr_poc_0545Over the weekend, Vancouverites living downtown awoke to discover a rare dusting of snow on the streets and in the parks.  Overnight flurries had turned the city into a winter wonderland, at least for a couple of hours.
