1000 Cool Things About Vancouver is a pretty self-explanatory Scout column that gives equal weight to the common attributes and obscure intangibles that make our city well worth living in. Getting to a thousand is a pretty ambitious goal, but we believe in our city and are already well on our way.
You know what’s cool? Recognizing and celebrating staff members who stick with a company and help to make it what it is. Main Street’s Wallflower Diner does this by nailing little three-inch trophy name plates to the edge of the six seat bar, each one with the name of a veteran staff member who has been (or was) on payroll for five years or more. I counted six names on my last visit. Plenty of room for more!
