Mary Shares Her Favorite Places in Vancouver

Mary recently sat down with Wired Magazine to share her favorite spots to hang out in when she visits Vancouver. Click the link above to read the interview in full. Below are some of the highlights:

Favorite Bar

Secret Location has a molecular-gastronomy-type tasting room, and the cocktails are super-inventive. You order a drink that claims to be the essence of some fruit—blueberries or peaches—and it tastes exactly like it. It’s that kind of Willy Wonka-esque experience.”


“There’s a lot of high-end shopping downtown, but I love this place called Oak + Fort in Gastown. Everything is really minimal but really striking, different than what other people are wearing. When I first walked in, it looked like the kind of place where you know everything is going to be at least $500. But then I found an amazing sweater for 40 bucks, an amazing piece of jewelry for 20 bucks.”

Best Beach

“We take our dogs to Spanish Banks Beach, where the tide goes out so far that you can walk out for what feels like miles. Then we go to Forty Ninth Parallel Café & Lucky’s Doughnuts, which has the best latte and best doughnut—maple-honey-glazed—I’ve ever had. Ever.”
