The other day I went to a bbt (bubble tea) restaurant called Joy-G. It was the first time I've been there and the place is unique in the sense that they offer boardgames for you to play. They have a large selection of games which varied from the basic checkers to the complex dungeon and dragons. Furthermore, they also have foreign Asian games that I've never heard of. Ideally this concept would be great, however they charge by the hour if you want to play with their boardgames. I forgot how much they charge, but I remember it being some what expensive. However they do offer a "all you can play and drink" price as well, where you can stay for as long as you want for a fixed price. This may be worthwhile if a bunch of your friends stay there for a long duration and play something that takes hours. ie Settlers of Catan or Monopoly, but it's going to cost $20+ each. On a side note, back when Twinkle (another bbt restaurant) was still opened they too offered customers boardgames, the only difference being that they didn't charge a price for it. Nevertheless, that could be the reason why they are no longer in business. (But you can still find them at the night market)

Alright, it's time for another update. A couple of days ago, while it was nice and sunny, I decided to venture out to Steveston Village in Richmond. For those of you that arn't familiar with Steveston, it is a historic fishing village that has many unique and interesting mini boutique stores and restaurants. The picture below shows one of the many historic museums that depict the history of the area.
Like I mentioned, the village has many unique shops and restaurants, one of my favorite places to visit is this mini donut shop named Outpost Mini Donut Co. They make mini donuts with many different and unique flavors. I like to buy the dozen assorted, where they just give you a bunch of random flavors. Oh btw, you can receive 10% off your total purchase by grabbing a coupon that's available in the village post office beforehand. A side warning the donuts can be addicting and eating too many of these mouth-watering donuts will certainly make you a bit chubby.

I don't exactly recall what flavors I got, but there was powdered sugar, lemon, chocolate, and others lol. Another side note about Steveston is that they have these public water fountains that are attached to fire hydrants, I found this pretty unique. Check it out.

Another cool place to visit is Heringers, it's a meat shop that specializes in pre-maranated meat. I brought a couple of steaks and flanks that I later grilled up back home. It was definitely yummy.
Anyways until next time =) KEEP IT FRESH
