“Here comes the summertime, the feeling’s in the air.
I remember cigarettes, tube socks, sun burns and long blond hair.
Here comes the summertime, yeah it’s coming soon.
I remember living upstairs, drinking iced-tea and swimming pools.”
-Josh Rouse, Summertime

In case you’ve been holed up in some Point Grey-area “garden suite” for the past couple of weeks, the weather in Vancouver has gone from miserable to nearly bearable to halfway decent more times than Paris Hilton has been in and out of prison. As summer unpacks its bags and decides to stay a while, things can only get better. Here at Eat Vancouver, what interests us most about summer is the food. But what exactly defines summer eats? Surely it’s different for each person, but to me it’s light, refreshing, perhaps grilled, and hopefully al fresco. This summer, we want to find the best summer eats in and around Vancouver.

To document our quest for the best of summer eatin’, we’ve created this new Summer Eatin’ series. to seek out and review Vancouver’s summer eats in an attempt to identify the best of the best. Be it burgers (especially relevant given the closure of the beachside Vera’s), hot dogs, sweet patios, margaritas, or mojitos, let us know about places we should check out, by visiting our new message board, the Mess Hall, under the discussion related to Summer Eatin’.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

    Since you made fun of the Canadian Thanksgiving Holiday with Turkey Dinner on another site, you should be aware of the fact that Thanksgiving was invented in Canada. The November Stars and Bars version is an immitation of the real thing!
