6 God in Vancouver for another night

Praise be to the 6 God, Drake added a second night in Vancouver to his tour dates. Summer Sixteen is about to get a hella lot hotter in the 604.

Both Andrea and I already have our tix (thanks AMEX front of the line!) but if you haven’t bought yet, tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, 10 a.m. on April 29.

The heat!! Lien prayed for Drizzy to show up at RiRi’s show in Vancouver, sadly nada. 

If you wanna avoid buying with the basics, there are a number of presales still happening:

Middleton Magic at the Taj Mahal

Kate Middleton positively dazzled on the final stop of their tour in India. This Naeem Khan (read: Indian-American designer) was absolute perfection on her. The dress was from the designer’s 2015 Resort collection. I appreciate that she’s finally opted to do more of a pointy-toed pump and left the boring round toes in London.

Key to point out, her earrings were anything far from crown jewels. Always one to represent high street, she purchased them from Bhutan’s Tiger’s Nest monastery for reportedly less than $10 CAD.

I think Lady Di would be proud. Kate and Will certainly seem to have created a much happier memory than when Diana was photographed in one of the saddest photos ever at the Taj.

Red Hot Red Truck

I love discovering new things about my city. As a born and bred Vancouverite, it’s so fun to be surprised. Did you know that a GIANT rad brewery, complete with tasting room and food service lives behind the many garages off Main Street and 1st Ave.? Clearly, I didn’t.

Turns out, Red Truck Beer has been in that spot for the past year. VERY much big rig-themed, the room was unpretentious to say the least. And they managed to make truck stop food taste pretty decent. I was a fan of their meaty reuben sandwiches on toasted rye and crispy, garlicky fries. Prices for beer were reasonable too, just $5 a pint.

It wasn’t my usual scene but I think I can get on board. For a quick tour of the place, scroll through the Soulcialite Facebook Live video.

If you’re already looking for sweet summer plans, the brewery is stepping up to host a summer concert series again, right outside their front doors! Over a 1,000 people are expected at the Truck Stop Concert Series.
