Happy New Year: Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games

My husband reminded me that we celebrated the milennium in Vancouver. Hard to believe that was a decade ago.

We've spent several New Year's Eves in Vancouver over the years, which included a leisurely lunch at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver's 900 West Lounge; cocktails at Gotham Steak House; and dinners at C Restaurant and a now defunct resto off Robson near The Westin Grand where we stayed one New Year's Eve. Love their Heavenly Beds (which you can now purchase at Nordstrom!).

But the big new year news for Vancouver is the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Feb. 12-28. If you're not going to see them up close and personal, do like me and watch them on TV. Depending on your taste/locale, it's either NBC in the US or CTV in Canada.

My couch is sooooo ready!

NOTE: 01/02/2010 is a palandromic date. Read more about places around the world that are palindromes, including one in Quebec.
