canada hockey

So you want to relive some of the Vancouver 2010 experience and gather with a group of people to watch Canada’s men’s hockey team. With the preliminary games starting at 9 a.m. PST, your first option is to throw a PJ party at home and make pancakes with maple syrup. Or you could head down to these places in Vancouver, which will be opening early in time for the opening face off!
