Vancouver resturants/shopping for teenager?

ChristineCanuck | | Dec 8, 2011 07:06 PM


My 16 y/o son and I will be in Vancouver next week for Prince and Guns N' Roses. We live in a small town in the middle of nowhere that lacks in decent resturants and shopping so we plan on making up for it big time during our visit. I hope you can help me make this an awesome trip for him.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to resturants and/or shopping that would impress a 16 y/o boy? He is a hard rock guitartist so music/guitar shops and t-shirt shops would impress as would anything to do with gaming. I heard there was some x-box preview set-up at Park Royal mall. Is this still in existance? Will the downtown HMV still be open next week?

As for resturants he loves sushi and the usual teen fare, pizza, burgers, etc.. We are going to try some of food trucks, Japadog, Veras, The Templeton, Sushi Mart, Aki and Ebisu on Robson. He was too young to have experienced Planet Hollywood or the Hard Rock Cafe. Are there any places like that anymore? Any places with live music that allows minors?

We will be staying at the Hyatt downtown and will not have a car so we need things within walking distance or easily accessed by public transit.

Any resturants, shopping or music related suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks kindly and happy holidays to all.
