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 cityâ€™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!
