Links – Port Moody Banners and Casino Hotels

Red Robinson Show Theatre Coquitlam Boulevard Casino

It’s officially the dog days of summer. Basically it means we aren’t getting much done at work, Costco has just put out the Christmas stuff, and it’s a smaller edition of the links.

The City of Port Moody is looking for new banner designs for the streetlights around town. This year the theme is “Faces of Port Moody”, so if you’ve got a design you’d like to see up on a post, get your design in before Oct 21st.

Last Thursday August 11th, the Tri-Cities experienced a magnitude 3.3 earthquake. I was sitting on my couch, didn’t feel a thing, but reading Twitter, there were a lot of people who felt a little shakin’ going on.

Boulevard Casino is getting ready to build a hotel at their location on United Boulevard. They will be holding an open house on Aug. 24 from 3 to 8 pm at the Red Robinson Theatre for the public to check out the new plans before they go to council. I suggested to my wife Amber that it could be a swell romantic destination. She doesn’t feel that a 10 minute drive over the freeway is exactly getting away from it all. So apparently we’re not the target market, but more hotel rooms that would allow the Tri-Cities to host bigger groups and events can only be a good thing for the area.

The Vancouver Sun has been running these map features with info about the commuting habits of different neighbourhoods. This week it’s the percentage of people who commute by car. While Langley has us beat, apparently we’re not exactly great users of transit. Real shocker there.

Anmore is accepting nominations for their Community Spirit Award until September 1st. As long as Anmore council isn’t involved in making that decision, I’m sure it will all go smoothly.

The Coquitlam Foundation is asking the provincial government to restore their gaming grant, so they can carry out more programs in the area. Two years ago community philanthropic organizations were cut out of the gaming grant money.

Who doesn’t love restaurant reviews? This week headed out to the Keg in Coquitlam for dessert, and Foodosophy checked out Hee Rae Deung Korean Chinese Restaurant.

Finally, we all know about the big yellow sulphur pile at Pacific Coast Terminals, but this video explains a little more about their operation out there in the Inlet.

  1. Thanks for the link connection! We visit your tri-cities often for our meals, so stay tuned for many more (and of course, would encourage your readers to check out our past posts too!). Cheers!

  2. Of course we’re not exactly great users of transit – we’re not exactly great RECIPIENTS of transit!
