Best of 604: Today's the Day

Comments 7 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Tonight at 6:00pm about 200 people will be gathering at The Cellar for food, drinks, supporting the Food Bank, and celebrating the efforts of all those who contribute online in Metro Vancouver. Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect today for the Best of 604.

Doors are at 6:00pm and admission is by monetary (cash/cheque) donation to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. I will have three lovely volunteers handing out a complimentary drink ticket (until 7:00pm), accepting your donation, and handing out raffle tickets. There will also be some finger foods supplied however as we’re at max capacity make sure to show up on time in order to get in on these goodies.

The awards announcements will take place around 7:15pm/7:30pm and I’ll go through all the runners up, as well as announce and award the winners with prizes donated by our gracious sponsors.

Please make sure to RSVP here – we sold out already but I have released a few extra tickets.

A note to the ladies (and the gents), I know a few of us are dressing up a little (I’m hoping to get a sweet dress this morning). As I explained on Twitter last night, my business is blogging (freelance,, sixty4media consulting etc.) so I won’t really have an office Christmas party this year. This is as close as I’ll get so I’m going to try and doll up a bit and celebrate the year with all of you. This doesn’t mean you have to dress up – jeans are very welcome – it’s just that I’ve had a few inquiries about attire.

Finally, be sure to have cast your vote for the awards – we have almost 6,000 votes in already so make sure you have made your favourite known.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to seeing everyone tonight. Remember to RSVP and I’ll print a list of the winners right here on tomorrow morning.

    I hope there wasn’t anything significant about the Facebook copy of the event getting cancelled? I was initially a little worried.

    Also, re: dressing up, I’m coming straight from work, so my normal respectably-dressed self may be as fancy as it gets. Hope that’s okay….

    I wish I could make it to the party but I am Mr. Mom tonight. The event sounds like a blast though. Nice work with the contest. Have fun all!

    Unfortunately none of the staff members from The Daily Seagull will be in attendance tonight due to prior commitments. But big thanks to Miss604 (aka Miss778) for putting on this event to recognize the talent in Vancouver.

    Hi Miss604,

    I just wanted to say thanks for organizing something that’s really great for the Vancouver blogging community. I’m sure it takes a lot of hard work and time.

    Unfortunately I cannot attend tonight since I’ve had a class tonight scheduled for a while.

    Thanks again for doing this for everyone! You rock.

    I hope the event goes well. A friend of mine nominated me, I am sure I did not win. I am just a girl from Richmond. It would have been fun to head out and be apart of this in person, it is just that .. I was writing my final.

    Because of this I am going to become more aware of the local blogging community. Take a gander at local blogs, and find out where people are from on other blogs that I visit regularly (I can honestly say that I do not know where most are from)…

    I will be adding you into my regular rotations though RSS. 🙂

    Great job! Such a lovely night!

    Sorry I’m such an awkwardly quiet person that has to get fellow bloggers to introduce me!
