Summer Time is the Best Time!

I just absolutely love summertime. Fresh, cool air breezes through the city and brings with it the aroma of sizzling meat on the barbecue. In Vancouver, the groups of people clustered on Robson Street signal the latest in-store sales and product promotions. In Toronto, the  GO trains become packed with Blue Jays fans waiting to see Ricky Romero wind up on the pitcher’s mound. Ahhh, summer.

This past Saturday was a great summer day for myself and some friends. If you live in Vancouver and were anywhere near Gastown this past weekend, you know that the Vancouver International Jazz Festival was on. As we strolled down Water Street, the atmosphere surrounding us was uplifting. Magicians and jugglers lined the streets, welcoming any and all spectators. Nearby pubs were packed with jazz fans yearning for a pint. Lemonade stands and corn on the cob stations offered food to satisfy anyone’s taste buds and two different stages hosted the smooth, rhythmic beats of Jazz.

Looking around, I couldn’t help but really feel a part of something that day. People lucky enough to live in Gastown hung out their windows, watching the live performances from the comfort of their own home. The crowds watching the shows were both young and old, tourists and Vancouverites alike – all coming to enjoy the same genre of music. It was a great day!

If you didn’t get the chance to go out this past weekend – shame on you…buuuutt don’t worry. The Jazz festival will continue until July 4, 2010.  For more information on show times and locations, visit the website.

Ummm so snow in the forecast!? In the middle of march!? Can anyone say global warming lol. It’s strange how winter seems to becoming in so late i feel like i should be going into hibernation soon. I’m more of a summer girl so I’m not down with snow. But there is something to look forward too…1)INTERNeX PuB NiGHT at The Blarney Stone and 2) St. Paddy’s Day woohoo. So this annual festival celebrates Saint Patrick, one of the most commonly recognized of the patron of saints of Ireland. This event is generally celebrated on the 17th of March and even though it is widely celebrated world wide and is considered to be a national holiday of Ireland, we wont be getting a day off from work for this one. Too bad i know! But that doesn’t you have to miss out on the festivities. You can start the week off right by joining us at the Blarney Stone (216 Carrall Street, Gastown) where you can eat, drink and party like the Irish! Home to one of the biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the city, you can enjoy the festive joys of green beer, a full Irish menu and Irish dancers both day and night. So originally the color associated with St. Patrick was actually blue, not green. However, over the years the color green and its association with this day has grown so let’s do it like the Irish and at least wear one green item…but the more the better really! So gotta run but I really hope to see you all out next Monday night at 8pm at the Blarney Stone Irish PuB.
