Vancouver! [Mar. 11th, 2006|11:56 pm]
Darth Paradox
[mood |happyhappy]

So. Sora and I are headed up to Vancouver on Saturday night (after (hopefully, depending on weather) helping xaandria empty out, paint, and reassemble her bedroom). We'll be staying the night there Saturday, basically wandering around the city (or finding something to do, we'll see) on Sunday afternoon, and going to the Canucks-Wings game on Sunday evening, before driving back to Seattle right after the game (and spending a rather late night on the road, as it happens).

So! My request to you, my friends list, is twofold.

1) Who wants to hang out/do stuff on Sunday? I know of one of you that's definitely living in the Vancouver area, but I don't know where many of you live.

2) Who has ideas for stuff to do in Vancouver? Museums, activities, whatever - basically, good ways to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Also, go Wings! They're one point behind the league lead right now, but they've played one less game, and a game is more often than not worth two points to them. (Two for a win, zero for a loss, and one for an overtime/shootout loss...) With Vancouver in the scrap for the last few playoff spots in the Western division (they're currently ranked 7th out of 15, and 8 teams go to the playoffs), this game could set the tone for a first- (or even second-) round playoff series between the Wings and Canucks. (It's also likely my last chance to ever see Steve Yzerman play. I'm not about to miss that.)

Sunday-tomorrow, or Sunday-next weekend?

A-heh. Yeah, I didn't think about that. Sunday-next weekend. We'd be arriving lateish (like 10?) on Saturday the 18th, and we'd be free Sunday the 19th until... say, 7 or so, since the game starts at 8.

Woohoo about the Wings. And getting a chance to see Yzerman play? That's so awesome.
Plus, you'll be watching hockey with a people who truly appreciate it. That's so cool.
Have a good time, you two crazy kids!

It'll be fantastic. Of course, it'll be even better if the Wings win, which they should, but it'll be fantastic anyway. And our seats get us a great view of the goal Detroit will be attacking in the 1st and 3rd periods.

(I bought one ticket before I met Sora, but now she's interested. So I found a pair of tickets, and am selling the other one on Craigslist. Whee.)

Hmm... took a trip to Vancouver a few years ago. What did we do... The Vancouver Aquarium is pretty cool. (There was a sign saying "The Beluga Whale Is The World's Most Romantic Sea Mammal.") What else? Somewhere in the city is a large steaming clock.... Uh... I'll post again if I remember more.
