I'm In the same boat as you man. Soup kitchens down town like 'The Door is open' has been a pretty cool experience for me.

this way, I may run into a former coworker who has lost his way and ended up in the DTES. Been living there for a good 12 or so years.

You get what you feel out of it. The DTES is a really pleasant place if you aren't too afraid of it. I love the vendors on the street. I tend not to haggle with them when I see something I want. The binners worked hard for that shit.

LOL it's changed sooo much...gentrified to the max, especially Chinatown and the immediate area around Army & Navy (e.g. Pigeon Park)
