  The Vancouver Art Gallery and the Hotel Vancouver
by Carmanah

Fondest memory: Eating hotdogs on the steps of the Vancouver Art Gallery. There's nothing quite like sitting on those steps and watching the people go by on a warm summer night. During the day, the chess players, tarot card readers, magicians, musicians, artists, environmentalists, Hare Krishnas, pot-smoking punks and ravers are all found on the main steps. I personally prefer the side steps at the Robson Howe intersection instead. About getting a good hotdog in Vancouver - the best hotdogs can be bought from the vendor across the street from the art gallery on Robson. He's quite a character! Sauteed onions, sauerkraut, Korean hot sauce, mustard and a dill pickle. Yum!
