I think it goes from 5:00-6:00 p.m. nightly.

The reception won't be anything fancy. Just a few bowls of peanuts and chips, plus an open bar. By this time, most people arriving on the Wednesday would have had a chance to look at the recommended ethnic restaurants provided by one of my students who lives in the area.

      >Remember that while you are in Canada, there are two types of taxes. The Provincial Sales tax which is 7.5% and the federal GST, which taxes everything, including service, at 7%. Being Americans, you will be able to get a refund on at least some of the GST when you leave Canada (so keep all your receipts).

Also, be aware that the Vancouver Airport has some kind of fee that must be paid when you leave (I forget what they call it, but it will probably be about $10-$15 Canadian, and it means another line-up to get the piece of paper that says you paid it and then give it to someone else to get through a check-point).
