One of my cousins flew into Vancouver yesterday for a short two day stay to take in the Olympic city. We met up for a few drinks in Yaletown tonight. He was quite impressed with the party atmosphere that prevailed throughout the downtown core.
Since we didn’t have a lot of time, we basically just walked through Yaletown, then down Granville, to Robson Square, and then to Burrard where the CTV late night newscast was going on. It was there we saw Bill Good and Pamela Martin. I was able to see Blake Price up close as he finished the sports. As soon as he was done, he ran out of that holding pen they have out on Burrard and quickly went back inside the CTV building. He’s a lot shorter than I thought he would be.
After that I took my cousin towards the outdoor cauldron near Coal Harbour. I had to go after that. I’m still amazed by number of people who are downtown on a nightly basis. For the next two weeks, there are no real weekends, it’s busy every night.
