Block Party Friday

Nothing says Pride like street party shenanigans. If you're looking for something to do tonight, this should be it:

Here's my write up from the Pride Guide. See you there!



Davie
Street Pride Party

Anything goes on Davie Street. Locals know
this. International visitors see it all summer long. This year, the same
philosophy will rule the annual the Davie Street Party, which is taking place
on Pride Friday (July 31). Gates open at 7pm and Davie will be closed from Bute
to Burrard until midnight.

This street party is the David Hasselhoff
of street parties: drunken, hairy, yet strangely majestic in all it’s
trashy-trashed glory.

Remember: nothing says “nice to meet you”
like putting your face in a stranger’s groin, so make sure to take your turn on
the giant Twister board.

This year also features an expanded DJ
line-up for a beat pumpin’, feet stompin’ good time. Don’t miss DJ Betty Ford,
who is a good friend of electro-smut princess Peaches. Her set will break your
ears and then break your heart. DJ G-love, DJ Dickey Doo and DJ Popmachine will
round out a great roster.

You should also make sure to check out live
performances by the always-smoldering Destineak, as well as by Vancouver’s own
pop starlets Armstrong Jr. and Peter Breeze.

For a $7 unlimited re-entry cover fee, you
can beer garden hop at your own leisure before ending up at one of Davie
Street’s many bars or circuit parties. Don’t miss out on this one.
