Bridges is that big, yellow building you see down below as you cross the Granville Street Bridge. "That look neat", you say to yourself, "I should definitely go there sometime!" Days turn into weeks, weeks into months, yet every time you cross that bridge the giant, yellow restaurant beckons like a seductive siren on the high seas. "Granville Island is so touristy, too many people", you tell yourself when the guilt of not following through creeps in, "maybe when summer's over and things quiet down."
Did you know that, in the area in and around David Lam Park, you can park your car for free, forever? A quick $3 trip across False Creek on the water taxi, a pleasure in itself, and you're in the hustle and bustle, you're part of the scene, you see why people travel the globe to visit our great city! Do yourself a favour and visit the Island tomorrow! Did you know people in Sweden dream of one day doing so? That Russians, in a far-off, smoke-filled bar, are discussing all the art studios and farm to table restaurants?
The first thing you notice about Bridges when you walk through its grand entryway are the smiling faces. The hostesses are happy, the waitresses are happy and the people behind the small ice cream counter, the Sugar Bay, serving Bridges house made gelato, are happy. And you'll be happy too, trust me :)
