It was an odd Christmas eve... the two of us wandered up to Davie Street for a glass of wine at The Fountainhead. The waiter advised us that it was last call. The place was scheduled to close in 10 minutes at 6:00pm. We stretched the 10 minutes into 35 minutes while reminiscing about past Christmases and I decided that red wine did not mix well with a head cold!
Back on Davie Street we chatted with a young First Nations man about his choice in reading material and his changing locations on the street. His smiling face always greets us from a nest of sleeping bags and other acquisitions.
After walking back and forth we decided to place a take-out order of sushi at Samurai. There are four sushi restaurants in two blocks along Davie Street and this was the only one with a line waiting outside...must be good!...and it was!
Waiting for our order.
