Brett and I had such a rad Friday night yesterday! We did so many things and it was such a beautiful night weather wise that even just walking around the city felt a little bit magical.

First, we went to see our first movie this year of the Vancouver International Film Fest. We chose Sarah Polley’s new film, Take This Waltz. It was a great movie- good story, great actors (Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, Luke Kirby and Sarah Silverman), beautiful styling (I want to own every piece of clothing that Michelle Williams’ character wears in the movie) and some great shots of Canada (The movie is set in Toronto and Cape Breton). Oh and also a cool soundtrack! Plus, seeing movies at the film fest just has an extra nice vibe to it. All these people are there to see really great art, so it just has a different atmosphere than a regular movie.

After the movie, we walked over to the CBC Vancouver building, where there was a free, outdoor concert to celebrate the first annual Culture Day in Canada. Playing at the concert were The New Pornographers, The Midway State and The Stars. I had never heard of Midway State, but the other bands are two of our faves. It was AWESOMES!! Well, it was a bit short, but how can you complain, it was FREE!!! So we rocked out for an hour or so, then we hopped on the skytrain back to our hood.

Where we went to……St. Augustines, for yummy seasonal beer on tap and the best nachos I think I have ever had. EVER. They were amazing. Fresh guac, fresh salsa, oh my…..heaven. And the beer I had was called Red Racer Pumpkin Ale from Central City Brewing in Surrey. Who knew there was a microbrewery in Surrey!?!? I must go there……

Hope the rest of the weekend rocks as much!! Enjoy yours!!
