Yes, this is still totally a Link Fest I just felt like having some fun, in the sun, on a Friday afternoon because what could be better? Oh yes, it’s not quite the weekend but it’s so close I can taste the margaritas.

  • I was invited to Vancouver’s first ever Twitter meetup which took place last night. Many showed up at UVA Wine Bar on Seymour and Smithe, so many in fact that we decided to move the event (after an hour) over to the Granville Room. I saw some familiar faces, some new, and spent time with @lisamedia, @colleencoplick, @todmaffin, @hummingbird604, @jennmae, @RochelleGrayson @kdmurray, @nalei, @counti8 @sillygwailo. Unfortunately neither venue had wifi so I couldn’t Twitter a thing butI have a few pics up here.
  • Who walks down the street randomly carrying a box of detergent and decides to discard it in a fountain? I know the other scenario is that this was planned mischief but… really

  • A while back John and I had a meeting in New Westminster and I was looking for a coffee shop close to the Skytrain that had wifi. Unfortunately we didn’t find one, and the closest thing to it was a Blenz up on 6th and 6th, but this morning Marina passed on this news tidbit: “New Westminster has been working with consultants on Wi-Fi and is currently putting together a business plan. With the research completed, the city’s electrical utility commission will review it before going to council later this year.” – New West News Leader
  • Wondering how I did at the Army and Navy Shoe Sale? Check my preview post for an update and photos of the madness… and success!
  • Starting today and running until Sunday the EPIC sustainable living expo will be taking place at the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre. My goal? Meet Mike Holmes. My more realistic goal? To see some Vancouverites out and about, learning about sustainable living, as well as meeting up with the rest of the EPIC/happy frog social media team.
  • Also, since Earth Day is coming up (hence my Green Web posts lately), tomorrow the 7-week FREE Environmental Extravaganza begins in Surrey. Check the site for a list of events and activities.
  • Finally a shout out to Tequila Kitchen that will be entertaining and supplying nourishment to kick off my weekend. I’ll be live blogging from EPIC tomorrow with the happy frog crew so be sure to check for more green content over the weekend and if you come on down to the show be sure to swing by the happy frog booth and say hi!

      I told Dave I’d try and swing by to take some photos. Let me know what time you’re showing up.

    2. Mike Holmes would be lucky to meet you!

      that fountain is at the harbour centre

      there is a webpage out there of a group that has done that to that fountain 4 times in total now, its always being soaped up

      i was there one night, but not involved!

      This type of stuff usually happens at the Wall center. As long as the detergent isn’t poisonous to the environment or its denizens, what’s the harm? I think it’s a nice sight and shows that we aren’t the fuddy-duddy city that visitors come to see us as.

      Not everything has to be about mischief. Why not do something just for the fun of it?

      My highlight of EPIC was the guy i was interviewing for a podcast who stopped mid-sentence and looked right at you and asked (getting all serious), “Are you Miss 604?”

      I think you made his weekend!
