Club Bud NHL Night

Comments 6 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Day 9 for me at the Vancouver 2010 Games included hanging out with John for the first time in a while. We took it easy in the morning before heading out to Granville to cover the red carpet at Club Bud‘s NHL party for several hours in the evening.

As each guest passed through, many were stopped for interviews which consisted of a few staple questions. Are you enjoying your time in Vancouver? Can you believe this crowd?. All of the celebrities took spent time with each reporter, posed for photos, and then headed up the stairs into the enveloping dance-beats of the Commodore.

Red carpet stars included: Jon Hamm, Hayden Christensen (with Rachel Bilson), Lochlyn Munro, Kristi Yamaguchi (with Bret Hedican), Michael Bublé, Logan Huffman, Geoff Stults, Bryan Greenberg, Shaun Majumder, Patrick Chan, Tara Lipinski, Joe Sakic (who just squeezed by as media was distracted) and many more.

Hayden Christensen

Some other special guests were Chris Walts and Michael Doyle from The 49th Parallel podcast. Chris won the chance to be the Club Bud “Party Crasher” to document the night using social media on behalf of Club Bud. Even yours truly was interviewed as well for Shaw TV.

Inside VIPs mingled about the crowd, obliging fan girls and boys with Facebook profile-boosting photos, before heading to their lounge behind the velvet rope. The atmosphere inside the venue was far different than the previous evening that was hosted by Burton with more men in jerseys and women in micro-dresses. However, the attitude was happy, joyful, and boy could the Bud-pumped crowd bust a move.

Club Bud is hosting three more nights with sponsors Under Armour, lululemon athletica, and the Budweiser party itself on February 25th.

    Well at least some fans got their Facebook stock boosted. That’s, I think, what red carpets are for nowadays.

    I was downtown that night. Man was that fun! I didn’t get a chance to see the red carpet events though so it is nice to see what I missed out on. Thanks for posting.
