wednesday night, we went out to celebrate shawn's birthday and we decided to check out the new hot spot in yaletown, george. it claims to be vancouver's premier cocktail bar and lounge. overall it is a pretty sexy place, the cocktail list was extensive and the ones i sampled from the list (i'm into champagne ones lately thanks to fides) were pretty good. the food was just o.k. -- i know that this is not the focus of the place but for the price point it should have been a bit better. the mood and the atmosphere was mixed, but probably because it is just gaining its footing. i imagine that in a couple of years it'll be that fabulous place in manhattan that it aspires to be.

that being said, i'll probably pop in for a drink or two in the future.

happy birthday shawn!
