Zebra Club – Customer Appreciation Night (Nov. 14, 2008)

The first time I heard of the retail shop Zebra Club (3101 Granville Street) was when someone gave me a free coconut flavored lip-chap as a promotional item for the Granville Street shop. I thought it was the best smelling free lip-chap I have ever gotten and immediately made my friends smell it too. Weirdly enough, we have a video of us analyzing and sniffing this little tube of moisturizer. Ah…good times, and thus, my strongest memory of Zebra Club. Anyway, I don’t shop much at Zebra Club, but if you do, check out their wine and cheese customer appreciation night from 6pm to 10pm. Here’s the Facebook Event.

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.
