"when free will becomes destiny" trip

June and July have been busy months.... I am so behind!

But still wanted to post some pictures of places that we enjoyed in our trip to Vancouver BC for Joe's show with Jesse Reno, Dave Barnes, and Mandy Tsung at Ayden Gallery.

Here is one of the pieces when still in our back yard (his natural habitat). This piece was one of my favorites (sold, of course!).
The day we got there, we were really hungry and Joe saw this place called "Foundation". We got lucky. It was really good, and it seems that it is one of the best vegetarian restaurants in town. It was around Main and 8th.

The next day, we went to Stalney Park, north from downtown....

And we headed to downtown, where we had a bite in a little place called Cambie Cafe (on Cambie street). It was this little little place that surprised us. Aparently, they are renovating the place, changing the name etc (kind of like us at the shop)... they are a bakery and coffee shop. Food was really good and very affordable.

Some pictures in downtown....
Coffee breaks....
the view from the room balcony....

it was a short trip, but it was fun!

japanese meeting Monday, July 13, 2009 @ noon

Hello my Japanese speaking friends,

As many of you already know (or noticed), I have canceled all activities in June and July because I’ve been trying to organize the shop…
By beginning of September, we are hoping to have our deck, the beer and wine license, and a “new seasonal menu” with appetizers and fresh greens and fruits from our neighborhood farmer Kollibri.
There are still lots to be done!

But it happens that my friend Mika’s parents are in town, and they would love to meet some Japanese speaking Americans!
They live in Brazil (very close to my parents!) and they are visiting Portland for another week or so. They are Tomohisa Sunago e Kazuko Sunago.

The best day for them will be next Monday, July 13 at noon. Can you let me know if you can come?
Ah! The theme… the theme will be about a trip again: “ryoko”.
Please bring us a good story of one of your trips and tell us in Japanese.

Tomohisa-san please bring us your sketch book with your wonderful drawings of places you’ve been visiting in this trip.
They are now in Canada, coming back Sunday… isogashii-desu neh!
I’m hoping to have a good and fun Japanese meeting group next Monday.

See you soon,
