This past Halloween, I started off my night of barhopping in Yaletown at Elixir and Opus Bar and arguably one of the cornerstone venues most representative of the YUPPIE crowd. Now, Opus Hotel needs our help and support! Opus Hotel has made an application to the City of Vancouver to allow additional height and floor area to accommodate a seasonal 250-seat rooftop restaurant.
Their fifth and final approval meeting will be at City Hall (457 West 12th Avenue) this Friday, November 7th from 6pm to 8pm and the owner of Opus Hotel, John Evans, is soliciting your presence, support and positive feedback at the meeting.
After 13 years making her world a Riot (the store formerly called Raya), owner Brenda McGuire has decided to move on to new surroundings. “I am definitely going to miss my neighbours and this community,” admits Brenda. “After so long, I have developed great friendships with so many people here, so I’m a little teary-eyed to go.”
On Thursday, November 6th, make the trek down to 1395 Commercial Drive one last time to take advantage of great fall collections, all marked down as much as 70%!
Sip on wine and flavoured sparkling water while you shop. And with any purchase of $200 or more, save an additional $20! Doors are open from 11am to 9pm so get there early before someone else snags your next discounted deal.
