Today, after hitting the Sunday farmer’s market (not to be confused with the Saturday farmer’s market which we also make a point of attending), we headed on over to the Waldorf Hotel for Food Cart Fest. The weekly event started on July 29th and is continuing, every Sunday, until September 2nd. It’s a chance to check out a bunch of Vancouver’s best food trucks – along with a few other surprises.
We got there for kickoff, 12:00 noon, and line-ups had already started to form.
Did a few tacos as well. Meh. So far as I’m concerned, nothing beats the tongue tacos at the Tacqueria. Yes, you read correctly.
Akemi and I actually discovered Earnest Ice Cream at last week’s (Sunday) farmer’s market.
I was mightily impressed by the quality of the ice cream and ended up picking up two pints for home –
Akemi polished off the Whiskey-Hazelnut in about a day. The Cinnamon Donut didn’t last much longer. Today, we ended up going one better, picking up three pints: Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs, Roasted Banana, and, of course, Whiskey-Hazelnut. Let’s hope they make it to Wednesday.
Continuing our trip down SGA memory lane…
Great. The Ancients were about as successful at holding on to Atlantis as they were the first time they had it. So now, it’s up to Sheppard and co. to retake the city from Asuran control and, oh yeah, help out a trapped O’Neill and Woolsey who are off causing all sorts of trouble of their own. An episode with a nice mix of action, humor, character moments, mythology, twists and turns – an nice, satisfying pay-off to part one’s set-up. And while things end happily enough as things return to normal for our gang on Atlantis, one big question lingers: Where the hell is that Ancient ship, the Tria? Well, given the fact that we don’t hear mention of it again after this episode, take your pick: a) It was destroyed by the Asurans when they took Atlantis, b) It was hidden by the Ancients – hidden so well, in fact, that no one has been able to find it, c) It was sent off on some unknown mission (by either the Ancients or the Asurans who claimed the ship after conquering the Ancients) and was subsequently lost, d) Add it to the pile of cool technology gathering dust at Area 52 like the goa’uld healing device and the time traveling puddle jumper.
Let’s hear your theories!
