Prado coffee shop on Commercial Drive, Vancouver. 

Throw-back to Prado pre-change in ownership. Still fabulous, still serving us some damn fine hipster coffee and gluten-free treats in the heart of East Vanistan.

Evening walks / A light in the darkness.

We in East Vanistan are environmentally conscious, but also kind of slaves to aesthetics. I mean look how cute and pretty and whimsical these houses look with their little glowing windows.

I love the sense of place so present in this photo. I live there. And it _is_ like that. (via Instagram)

East Vanistanis are very passionate about their reusable bags and fresh produce. On account of our being veggie hippie foodies and all. =)

Oh East Vanistanis, always up for a little Disney-themed, peace-promoting caper. *No Disney characters OR mice were harmed in the making of this image.

Stroll through East Van

Sometimes we need to have a little extra East Vanistani light in our lives.

Friends not food. #bikeroute #graffiti #art #streetart #shark #smile #eastvan #vancouver

East Vanistanis are terribly committed to neighbourhood beautification and to combatting the negative images of sharks that are at large in our community.

I should be asleep but instead I’m in a ball pit bus. #jhayneproblems #burners #safetythird (at Croatian Cultural Centre)

In other news, East Vanistan is home to a Croatian Cultural Centre, delightfully eccentric people, and this magnificent ball pit. Rock on, East Vanistanis. Way to be awesome.

#nerdbait #commercialdrive #eastvan #signs (at Renzo’s Cafe)

Renzo’s Cafe, purveyor of fine coffees, is conveniently situated to allow caffeine addicts (so, basically, every single East Vanistani) to gawk at the goings-on in Granview Park. Also, apparently quite the nerd baiter. How can we coffee-gulping people-watching brainy-babe-adoring East Vanistanis say no to Spock and Sherlock?

Many thanks to gotsound.tumblr.com for this submission, which has at least two uses: (1) East Vanistani bingo; and (2) the flag of East Vanistan that accomplishes that most impossibly rare task of accurately depicting the community that it aims to represent. East Vanistan pride!
