GDD Summitters: Be Our Guest!

False Creek Ferry Science World 1000x350

View of Science World and False Creek from Stamp’s Landing

For those of you heading to beautiful British Columbia next week for the GDD Summit, you may want to carve out some time to experience a few of our favourite things in the city of Vancouver.

Both Tania and I are based in Vancouver and we thought, why not plan a little sightseeing day on Monday and showcase some of the best the city has to offer? Anyone who would like to join us would be most welcome!

Here’s a rough schedule for the day – feel free to join at any one of these scheduled stops:

10am: Meet at JJ Bean cafe near English Bay, we will grab a coffee and walk along the seawall to Sunset Beach (10 min walk)

11am: Take the False Creek Ferry from Vancouver Aquatic Centre dock at Sunset Beach to Granville Island (6 min water taxi)

11am-2pm: Explore Granville Island, there are plenty of shops to peruse and places to eat

2pm: Take the Aquabus from Granville Island to Stamp’s Landing (13 min water taxi)

2:30pm: Pull up a chair to enjoy the sunshine and a beer on the waterfront patio at Mahony & Sons. The first round is on NamesCon 🙂

From 4pm onwards, the night is yours! You will have plenty of time to make it back to Richmond for the GDD Cocktail Reception.

For the rest of your stay, Tania and I would be happy to make dinner or drink recommendations, but here’s a few suggestions we narrowed down that are within a reasonable distance of Mahony & Sons:

Please note that all food, fare, beverage or other associated costs for this outing are your sole responsibility.

Contact us ( with any questions, otherwise we look forward to seeing you at JJ Bean on Monday morning!
