OLYMPIC 411

I’ve been holding off from writing about this seeing as though the entire planet (exaaaageration) is… I like going against the grain, but this past week I’ve noticed some serious changes around the city.  Beyond asthetically and infustructure… PEOPLE are getting jacked up! I LOVE IT! Fiiiiinally.  We’re finally embracing the games.  But not everyone is in-the-know about what, where, when, of all the glorious things to do around VanCity- Not to worry peeps, Frank’s here!

Ok people, after hours of research I’ve condensed all you need to enjoy- SERIOUSLY enjoy the Olympics.

1) GET OUT AND ABOUT

So this comes with a bit of a reality check and attitude adjustment.  Yes this city is going to be crazy and yes getting around is gonna be silly times.  Make your peace with it and embrace the chaos!  Lots of you will be working wacky hours etc. and most businesses will be a bit more accomidating at this time, so take advantage-  get your pallies together and start a bit of chaos of your own 🙂

2) NO MONEY HONEY

Ok if there is 1 thing to take away from this post, this is it. Have you heard of LIVECITY YALETOWN?  Didn’t think so lol.   David Lam Park will feature a number of top local, Canadian and international entertainers on the stage, plus big-screen Olympic Winter Games sporting coverage, Olympic sponsor and partner pavilions, educational and family programming. Big named performers include: Default, Mother Mother, DJ SPOOKY, MATISYAHU, Alexsisonfire, Mariana’s Trench, SAM ROBERTS, aaaaaaand DEADMAU5…. yaaaa no big deal!!  For full sched http://vancitybuzz.blogspot.com/2010/01/livecity-yaletown-olympics-schedule.html

Ohhh did I mention— This is free? Gosh I love a deal!

3) GROUND FLOOR FUN

Simply put, get to ground zero for fun times! It’s estimated that a few thousand foreignors will be here within the first few DAYS of the games… Imagine all that fresh meat lol So seriously get to Granville, Olympic Village, Gastown, Robson Street- pretty much this is the best time to meat (haha I mean meet) new people that are here to party. 

I know the job of being host/hostess is a thankless job… Ok read between the lines. So really if you don’t have an amazing time during the Olympic games, it’s your fault cus VanCity has done its part. DO YOURS 🙂

Lots o love VanCity,

~Frank Fierce
