Who is your favourite Vancouver author?
Bill Richardson. His Waiting for Gertrude was given to me by my wife on our first date, and I adore it. I recently saw him at the Vancouver International Writers Festival where he interviewed Sarah Waters—so charming and witty!!

Where's the best place for coffee?
There is so much great coffee in Vancouver! If I'm right downtown, I always try to hit Caffe Artigiano. If I'm on Main, I stop in at Bean Around the World—amazing coffee and some scrumptious carrot cake!!!

What's your favourite restaurant for a romantic dinner?
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary recently at the new Pourhouse in Gastown. We went on a week night, so it wasn't super crowded. The atmosphere is quite intimate and the food is amazing. I can see on the weekend how it might get a little rowdier, but our time there was very romantic.

What's your favourite bar?
Well, I am currently reading a great book on forgotten cocktails, so I've been seeking out bars that make drinks from forgotten recipes and ingredients. I've been spending some time at Voya recently, enjoying their unusual potables.

Where do you plan to watch the Olympics?
I live across the street from False Creek where the Athlete's Village, Sochi 2014 House, Molson Hockey House, several provincial pavilions and BC Place are all located. So, I'll be able to do some amazing people watching from my balcony. For sporting events, I'll either be relying on the big screen at home, or wandering to one of the free venues downtown where they will have screens - maybe for the bigger games (like if we make the gold medal round
in hockey!) There is a great list of free events and venues at City Caucus.

Thanks Kate!

Far from the Maddening Crowds, mostly
