The Bestest Of Vancouver ~ Vancouver says farewell to.....

by Carmen Cruz

It's the end of an era....

Section 3 is one of my favourite places to hang out at. Despite the fact that it's in Yaletown, the scene here is laid back and completely unpretentious. Arturo (my favourite bartender) makes the BEST mojito's in the city and J (the manager) gives amazing and friendly service - ALWAYS.
Their 'Nerd' sign has to be one of the most photographed bar signs in Vancouver (It's actually my wallpaper on my computer).
And their food! It's a little known fact that the food here is 'off the hizzle'.  They've got stuff like....

Pulled Pork and Goat Cheese Poutine
House-cut Kennebec Fries, Port Demi-Glace

Ultimate Veggie Burger
Whole Wheat Bun, Alfalfa Sprouts, Cucumber, Avocado, Roasted Garlic Mayo, Goats cheese

BBQ Baby Back Ribs
Four Cheese Macaroni and Coleslaw

**They've also got gluten free options. Nice!**

 I've had my birthday, going away and welcome back parties, all at this lovely place. I've even spent a new years eve here.
Now... it's closing it's doors for good. The owners have decided to sell the place and move on to new adventures. You have about a month to head out to Section 3 and take advantage of their amazing drinks, yummy food and awesome atmosphere. I have to say that I'll genuinely miss this place.

Maybe, if you're lucky, one of the staff there will tell you the story behind their 'nerd' sign and how they decided to name the restaurant 'Section 3'. (Let's just say it involved being sued by Robert De Niro. True Story).

As of September 23, Section 3 will be no more.

It truly was one of the Bestest Of Vancouver.
