Despite the morning news and radio talk show hosts telling me that it was going to be pouring rain yesterday and today, it’s been a gorgeous week so far in Vancouver. I can’t remember the last time I used a song lyric in the title of a blog post, and I also can’t recall the last time I walked home from work in the sunshine and felt like skipping – or had the energy to skip. I just don’t think adults skip often enough.
The sun will shine clear through the weekend and our schedule is filling up yet again. Here are a couple of events put on by some good people that I’d like to plug, some of these can be found on my Facebook calendar as well.
Gastown Photowalk: Walk. Take pictures. Geek out.
Wednesday May 9 from 5:00pm – 8:00pm, Meet @ Bryght, Suite 400 – 1 Alexander, Vancouver, BC [Google Map] [Facebook Link]
SuperHappyDevHouse, Vancouver Edition
Socialtext’ers are descending on Vancouver as part of their annual migration to meet, hack, and plan. They came up with the idea of bringing the Bay Area-based Super Happy Dev House to Vancouver.

Metamorphosis: Written by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Mary Zimmerman, directed by Christine Willes, and starring the 2007 graduating class and guest artists of the William Davis Centre for Actorsâ€™ Study, this is a theatrical event not to be missed!
