INSIDE A-LIST 2020

W E L C O M E to our annual A ★ L I S T celebration

D

uring the past several months, we have learned to live in a new normal due to COVID-19. Businesses have had to adapt quickly and be nimble in order to survive, and we all came together as a community to support these local businesses during tough times. The Tri-City News also had to adapt – we could no longer celebrate the winners at our annual event, but we are able to give back by telling the stories our readers need to hear. A★List 2020 is setting records and our readers came out and voted like never before. The thousands of responses demonstrate how much these businesses mean to all of us and how strongly we all feel to highlight our favourites in over 135 categories across three cities. We have also highlighted how these businesses have given back to their communities during COVID-19. Read how Dinakis Mediterranean Grill Restaurant delivered meals to over 400 frontline workers and the numerous ways all of these businesses profiled were able to give back. These are the stories we are happy to tell and why they are considered the best in the Tri-Cities. We proudly congratulate each and every winner and finalist on the A★List from those who have been recognized year after year, as well as the newcomers. We also would like to congratulate Robyn Chambers, the winner of a $500 gift certificate from Coquitlam Centre, and Queenie Wong, winner of a $150 gift certificate for Dinakis Mediterranean Grill. We encourage you to keep the 2020 A★List magazine handy and refer to it often. These businesses need our support more than ever to help them recover and ensure they continue to be the best in the coming years.

COQUITLAM’S FAV O U R I T E S

M

ore than 140,000 people call Coquitlam home and it is easy to see why.

From the beaufitul hiking trails and outdoor parks and green spaces to the community events, like Lights at Lafarge and Kaleidoscope Arts Festival, the municipality is an excellent place for families to live, work and play.

These days, the city is undergoing many changes. The addition of SkyTrain in 2016 has connected the municipality to the rest of the region, helping to spur on new shops, cafes and restaurants while leading to a significant increase in townhouse and highrise development. The area also has a thriving private sector, with businesses opening up in newer parts of the municipality, like the City Centre neighbourhood, as well as historic neighbourhoods, like Maillardville and the Austin Heights area. Some of these businesses are celebrated in The Tri-City News A-List for 2020. Check them out on the pages of this magazine.

COQUITLAM

O U R FAV O U R I T E S

WITH JAI SINGH JAI YOGA COQUITLAM After a day of work, where do you go to unwind, or what do you do to relax?

During my free time, I focus on doing activities that help broaden my mind and increase my knowledge about my passion, which is yoga and meditation. You can find me buried in a book or watching a documentary about yoga and spirituality.

How do you refuel your mind, body and soul?

Prem and I love to spend each morning in meditation and pranayama (yogic breath work) before sunrise, followed by a brisk run and then a grounding yoga session. This way we are honouring our body, mind and soul. I always then look forward to teaching the first yoga class of the day at Jai Yoga Studio.

What’s your favourite outdoor spot in the Tri-Cities to spend time in?

We love spending time in Mundy Park as it’s close to Jai Yoga studio and is a fantastic spot that is so central in the Tri-Cities to get grounded in nature.

Are there any hidden gems you might recommend to new or long-term residents?

Our favourite cafe — Coffee & Vanilla! Family owned and close to Jai Yoga Studio as well. As a family owned business ourselves, we strongly believe in the importance of being a patron at small, family owned, local businesses.

What are your favourite roads or paths to travel during a relaxing afternoon trip in the Tri-Cities?

Travelling along Pipeline Road in Coquitlam is relaxing. You find yourself leaving the city behind and eventually ending up in total nature. It’s a perfect way to have a mini-road trip when you’re short on time.

How have you given back to the community this year, especially in light of COVID-19?

During the lockdown, we continued doing online yoga classes. Since March, when COVID-19 came to B.C., we could see how this situation affected so many people. In the news, we were reading about how anxiety was increasing among the general public. Instead of shutting our doors completely during lockdown, we continued to offer yoga classes to our community through virtual because we knew this is when yoga is needed the most. Since reopening, our doors at the studio in July, our mission to promote authentic Indian-style yoga that is transformational, mind body and spirit has become a strong focus for us — more than ever. It is during these times yoga is so important for our overall wellness and well-being. .tricitynews.com || 2020 2020 || www.tricitynews.com

COQUITLAM

O U R FAV O U R I T E S

W I T H J A S O N Z A N AT TA N OV O T E X T I L E S C O . COQUITLAM

For people new to our community, is there anywhere you recommend they check out?

Hike through Mundy Park and witness incredible old growth trees and nature in the middle of central Coquitlam is always impressive.

Are there any hidden gems you might recommend to new or long-term residents? After a day of work, where do you go to unwind, or what do you do to relax?

Pivoting Novo into full Surgical & N95 mask production during a global pandemic, then scaling that production upwards to meet Canada’s health-care demand has left very few hours to relax and unwind. There will be plenty of time to relax and unwind once we’ve defeated COVID-19 – and ensured Canadians are protected by legit, lab-tested, and Health Canada-certified PPE, not questionable (foreign-made) garbage.

How do you refuel your mind, body and soul?

Spending what free hours I do have with my family is the best recharge I could ask for. No matter what is happening in the world, playing a game of basketball with my sons Hudson and Leo in our driveway, taking our bulldog Caesar for a late-night walk, and after the craziness of the day has ended, enjoying a late-night nightcap with my wife and partner Julie, talking the day over on our backyard deck is all the fuel I could need to keep going and pushing forward.

What’s your favourite outdoor spot in the Tri-Cities to spend time in?

Rocky Point Park coupled with any of the patios on Brewery Row are the makings for a perfect day and night in the Tri-Cities.

Has to be Golden Boot Italian Café on the south side of Blue Mountain Park. Incredible Italian food. I’ll say their gnocchi is as good, or better, than any I’ve tried in any Italian restaurant from Vancouver to NYC. Legit home-made quality and flavours throughout their menu. During these times, all Tri-City residents should make every effort to support locally owned restaurants bars and breweries.

What are your favourite roads or paths to travel during a relaxing afternoon trip in the Tri-Cities?

The one from my factory that leads home at the end of a long day building a world class PPE factory here in Coquitlam.

How have you given back to the community this year, especially in light of COVID-19?

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve donated many thousands of level three surgical masks to local elementary schools, along with Coquitlam Metro Ford Soccer. We want to ensure Coquitlam’s families are protected using locally made Health Canada-approved product. Shameless plug time: Need masks for your Tri-City business? Contact us at: orders@ novotextilesco.com – discount codes and free shipping apply to all Tri-City residents and businesses.

P O RT C O Q U I T L A M

P O RT COQUITLAM’S FAV O U R I T E S

P

ort Coquitlam is a lively city of about 60,000 people spread out in family-friendly neighbourhoods along green belts and the Coquitlam and Pitt rivers. With a thriving downtown that is undergoing a major transformation to promote walkability and cycling along McAllister Avenue and the Donald Street Pathway, free parking and bustling shopping areas on both the north and south sides of the city, PoCo has become a city of note in the region. Local families are also benefiting from new schools — a rebuild of Minnekhada middle school, now complete, and at Irvine elementary school, where construction of a new building will soon begin. Sports and recreation are important to PoCo residents, as evidenced by the popularity of the PoCo-Traboulay trail and city parks, where alcohol consumption was permitted this summer. The city has also been able to open portions of its brand new civic facility — with ice arenas opening up this fall at the Port Coquitlam Community Centre (PCCC) while construction is also well under way for underground parking, large gymnasium and third ice rink at the PCCC. Indeed, the coming year will provide many important milestones for the city, even as COVID-19 continues to circulate. Port Coquitlam residents have a lot of pride for their hometown, where national hero Terry Fox grew up, and the coming months will be no exception.

O U R FAV O U R I T E S

W I T H C H R I S T I N E TO S S A R E / M A X L I F E S T Y L E S R E A LT Y P O RT C O Q U I T L A M After a day of work, where do you go to unwind, or what do you do to relax?

I do love going home to spend time with my family! I enjoy crafting, reading and walking along the Traboulay PoCo Trail.

How do you refuel your mind, body and soul?

My friends and family are extremely important to me so it’s important for me to carve out time to spend with them. PreCOVID, I loved getting together for paint night.

What’s your favourite outdoor spot in the Tri-Cities to spend time in?

Oooh, that’s a toss-up between Lafarge Lake, Rocky Point and the Traboulay PoCo Trail.

For people new to our community, is there anywhere you recommend they check out?

The best thing about living in the Tri-Cities is that there is an abundance of activities, festivals, farmers markets, local businesses and events.

Are there any hidden gems you might recommend to new or long-term residents?

My personal favourite is Western Sky Books and they are extremely helpful and I love to unwind with reading.

What are your favourite roads or paths to travel during a relaxing afternoon trip in the Tri-Cities?

I have a very big sweet tooth! So I definitely love to hit up Europe Bakery and Deli, Gabi and Jules, Rocky Point Ice Cream, Matteo’s Gelato & Caffé Divano.

How have you given back to the community this year, especially in light of COVID-19?

During the pandemic I am an essential service worker and also was able to volunteer with Share helping/organizing driving groceries to seniors and for seniors’ phone-a-friend services. I encouraged my office to take part as well. For my business, I try to feature a local small business to help promote them on my social media as I find those businesses are the ones that are really struggling during COVID. I love giving back to the community and have made that part of my “Creating Smiles” mission statement. From every transaction that I do, I donate to the Children’s Miracle Network and I also donate to a charity of my clients’ choosing. Now, more than ever, I find it so humbling being able to help others out.

Interior Design

It certainly has been an interesting year so far! In the beginning of this journey we found ourselves on, we retreated to our homes, found ourselves working from the kitchen table, the bedroom, the basement, wherever there was some quiet space while the kids and the pets were going stir crazy. All that as we struggled to find new ways to connect with our loved ones. Whew! Are we done yet? While we can’t embrace each other we are adapting and learning ways to embrace the uncomfortable. We as a business also took a step back, from the personalized service that we love to provide, to taking it on line via zoom and video tours of your spaces, just so that we can still make a difference and help you find comfort in your home. We are spending more time at home and our wellness is hugely influenced by our day to day surroundings. We have also found our new normal. You are welcoming us back into your home for personal in home consulting, because that is, after all, still the best way to help you “Turn your house into a home”! With social distancing and safety protocols in place, of course. Thank you Tri-Cities for voting us your favourite Interior Designers (INSERT PROPER AWARD TITLE)

Spending time with my family always helps me relax and when I want to unwind, I like to enjoy local craft beer with my friends.

How do you refuel your mind, body and soul?

When I want to decompress, I like to play snooker with my friends. We really enjoy Cue World billiards in Coquitlam.

What’s your favourite outdoor spot in the Tri-Cities to spend time in?

Lafarge Lake, Rocky Point and Buntzen Lake are some of our favorite outdoor hangouts.

For people new to our community, is there anywhere you recommend they check out?

Well the obvious answer is Dinakis if you’re in the mood for amazing Mediterranean eats. We also have the best happy hour in town.

What are your favourite roads or paths to travel during a relaxing afternoon trip in the Tri-Cities?

The drive out to Buntzen is beautiful — the views are amazing.

How have you given back to the community this year, especially in light of COVID-19?

We thought it was really important to give back to our front-line workers. We delivered meals to over 400 staff at Eagle Ridge Hospital. We also offer a 25% discount to all front-line workers to show our respect and appreciation.

P

ort Moody is the Tri-Cties’ hidden gem that’s not so hidden any more.

Already renowned for its lively craft brewery scene that draws visitors from across the Lower Mainland, the city is also a destination for its scenic and recreational splendour. The Tri-Cities’ smallest city is nestled around the eastern-most arm of Burrard Inlet. Its seaside charm can be enjoyed from parks like Rocky Point and Old Orchard, or from along the 3 km Shoreline trail that connects them, from which walkers and cyclists can catch glimpses of seabirds, eagles and even the occasional bear. Just minutes away, more adventurous outdoor enthusiasts can access an unlimited variety of hiking and biking trails that stretch deep into the rugged backcountry of the Coast Mountains.

The city also enjoys a lively entrepreneurial spirit, borne from its roots as the original western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the completion of which is celebrated every year with its Golden Spike Days festival. Small, independent businesses — many of them featured in this year’s A-List — strive to satisfy almost every whim and need, from high-end restaurants to a toy shop, butchers, and even an olive oil emporium.

WITH CHRIS CHONG BUTTER STUDIOS AGENCY P O RT M O O DY After a day of work, where do you go to unwind, or what do you do to relax? I like to grab a bite from one of my favourite local restaurants!

How do you refuel your mind, body and soul? With great food (or dessert)!

What’s your favourite outdoor spot in the Tri-Cities to spend time in? Tie between Rocky Point Park and Lafarge Lake

For people new to our community, is there anywhere you recommend they check out?

There are so many outdoor activity options like the Coquitlam Crunch and an abundance of trails, Brewer’s Row, Buntzen Lake, White Pine Beach, Old Orchard Park.

Are there any hidden gems you might recommend to new or long-term residents?

Lazy Den Bubble Tea in Port Moody, pockets of shallow water beside Coquitlam river (great for anyone with kids wanting to cool off during the summer), and now due to COVID-19 food wholesalers like The Lobster Guy and Pasta D’Angelo are retailing their amazing food for public purchase. Henderson Place’s food court.

What are your favourite roads or paths to travel during a relaxing afternoon trip in the Tri-Cities?

I love driving around Westwood Plateau and also through Anmore.

How have you given back to the community this year, especially in light of COVID-19?

Raised funds for BC Cancer, sponsored the Tri Cities Stay at Home Gala, SHARE/BCLC Givergy Online Fundraiser, sponsored 12 Brand Videos for businesses struggling due to COVID restrictions.

O U R FAV O U R I T E S

WITH CHRISTINE IRVINE C H R I S T I N E C AT E R I N G P O RT M O O DY After a day of work, where do you go to unwind, or what do you do to relax? My own backyard, going for a walk with the dogs.

How do you refuel your mind, body and soul?

I work out at Coquitlam fit body boot camp. I stop there every morning before work.

What’s your favourite outdoor spot in the Tri-Cities to spend time in? Hiking for sure — love Bunzten trail or Minnekhada trail

For people new to our community, is there anywhere you recommend they check out?

Tap and Tacos, Brewery Row for sure - all the food trucks around there have amazing food and beer.

What are your favourite roads or paths to travel during a relaxing afternoon trip in the Tri-Cities? Road to Anmore or Belcarra. It’s relaxing and love the view and nature.
