Good times, with Cocktails

Tasty beverages, heavy on the Campari

Celebrating my imminent departure at #YVR

33 Acres on W. 8th in Vancouver is a great place to enjoy some afternoon beers and snacks - so much so that we got a little camera phone trigger happy and drank quite a bit more than was originally planned.  Describing us as tipsy would have been kind.  

The spirit of the beer filled us, and it carried us home in a warm glowy bubble and then deposited us gently on the couch for a mid afternoon nap.  

The perfect pairing: Bones and Quailhurst Rose, al fresco on a Saturday night.

A strangely fragrant Paris Block Negroni from Tuc Craft Kitchen.  I think it’s gonna take me a few sips to decide if I like it, and I’m ok with that.

Right now it tastes like my work week. Waiting for it to transform into Friday night flavours…

First rose of the summer at Salt in Gastown, but she looks kind of lonely. Better order another.

Pretty damn elegant for a margarita, no nachos in sight.

On a Saturday, drinking Wednesdays, at Burgundy. That may just be the best thing ever.

This tiny bar called The Safehouse, in the basement of Seattle creative agency Creature, is perfect hotel secret bar inspiration.

Technically it’s a vault, and the agency has infused it with a, “1970 hipster cabin in the woods” vibe including 3,000 LPs to play with. Signifying the nobody works, nobody gets hurt nature of what a creative agency watering hole needs to be, the bar has but one rule, no working. Smart.
