Similar to the Gastown Shop Hop a few weeks ago, Yaletown is holding a shopping night on December 19th from 5pm to 9pm. Celebrate the holiday season with 36 of Yaletown’s finest retailers and restaurants and spend the evening shopping for yourself or loved ones. From looking at the list below, it seems like most of the deals are around 20% off – which isn’t that much but if you had your eye on something in Yaletown anyway, this Friday would be the night to buy it! Skimming the list below, perhaps you can stop by Section 3 for 2 for 1 appies and drinks after you shop? Or get your hair done at Blo at 15% off before heading off to a fancy Christmas party? I would recommend clicking on the map below and printing it out to bring with you.
I can’t believe I got postal mailed VIP invitations to Caprice’s Winter Wonderland clubbing event this coming Thursday, December 18th. I guess this didn’t really come as a surprise because they called me a few days ago asking for my mailing address. But how they got my phone number is another mystery. I don’t know if I’m going to go yet, but it’s definitely an option for this Thursday since I have three postcard invitations for me and a guest! What music should you be expecting? “DJ DARYLO spinning the best of top 40, and Hip Hop.” Anyway, just because they took the time, effort and postage to do that for me, I feel like I should reward their targeted marketing and put up their event flyer on Modern Mix Vancouver.

Last night was the monthly Van Gogh Live Art Series held at Opus Bar in Yaletown. The unique event concept featured local artist, Michael Solomon, creating art on the spot. On a nearby table was an auction form on which potential buyers could put a bid on the piece of artwork by the end of the night. Guests were also treated to an in-house DJ and complimentary tastings of Van Gogh vodka mixed with hot chocolate topped with whipped cream.
The Van Gogh Live Art Series takes place the first Wednesday of every month at Opus Bar and Hotel in Yaletown.
