Sorry for the long delay in posts, folks! I know this one was a long time coming. This post covers the last few days of the Olympics. Although I was sick halfway through the Olympics, I decided to honour the rest of my commitments and go to all the events that I said I would. As a result, I continued to get even more and more sick. But hey, it was fun while it lasted, right? It’s a once in a lifetime experience and in retrospect, I can say I definitely enjoyed the Olympics to the fullest extent!

Lineup outside Club Bud

The last Thursday and Saturday nights of the Olympics were the Club Bud parties… the main Budweiser one and the Lululemon party. At the Lululemon party, it was so crazy that the VIP athlete/celebrity line was MAXED and lined up around the block, let alone the normal lineup! Crazy!

We got to see a number of athletes and celebrities including Mayor Gregor Robertson, Torah Bright, Mark Valley, and well… of course the sexy Budweiser girls.

Danish Curling Team

I was also super stoked to see Canadian medallists Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Jessica Gregg, Marianne St. Gelais, and more. Also honourable mention to the Danish curling team… yes, the captain Madeleine Dupont is very famous for her appearance in a certain “calendar”. Take a look on Google.

Inside Club Bud's Lululemon Party

The inside of the Lululemon party was super cool… they had a number of dancers and acrobats suspended from the sky. I brought my best friends Kim and Anna to the party. Kim actually owns a yoga studio in Vancouver and a number of her students and friends were the dancers on the ceiling!

Here’s me, Kim and Anna having an awesome time.

At Gossip Nightclub for Calvin Harris

A huge number of my friends from business school in university flew into town to experience the Olympics. I can’t tell you how rad it was to see about 12 of my friends from school that I never get to see since they are all working in Toronto, New York, LA, etc. One of my best friends Erik was staying at our apartment, and so I inevitably got dragged along to party with him and the rest of our school friends. One of the nights we headed to Gossip nightclub to see Calvin Harris.

I’m not a huge DJ person, but the music was great and I also bumped into a couple of Allan’s friends there. Great atmosphere.

My friends got a VIP booth

My friends of course managed to get a VIP booth which I happily tagged along and enjoyed!


So great to see everyone!

On the Pedi Cab

Afterwards Erik and I took a Pedi Cab home… that was fun.

At their VIP booth at Barcelona Nightclub

On Saturday after the Lululemon party, Kim and Anna and I joined a couple more of my university friends at Barcelona Ultra Lounge where yes… they also had another VIP booth. Yeesh! These people know how to roll!

Robb, me, Erik

Here’s Robb, me and Erik. Thanks for having us guys! I was stone sober the entire night and it was pretty crazy to see them get kicked out multiple times, only somehow to get back to their booth. Note to self: Show up earlier.

Canadian Olympian Medallists honoured

The last day of the Olympics, Allan and I headed to the Hockey House to watch the Gold Medal game. We had tickets way in advance so thank goodness we weren’t paying the ridiculous amounts of money that people were paying to get tickets to that. We also managed to get there super early and so we got one of the 5 tables in the “non-VIP” area! Woohoo! We saw a number of Canadian athletes honoured for their medals…

… we saw Wide Mouth Mason perform…

The Odds Performing

… and the Odds, with so many guests!


We of course saw Canada win Gold, which was pretty much the greatest moment of my life. I bawled my eyes out for about 20 minutes straight. It was a proud moment. I will never forget it.

Roberto Luongo with Daughter and Gold Medal

And best of all, we got to see Roberto Luongo after winning the Gold Medal with his beautiful daughter!

How cute is that little Luongo jersey?

Thanks for being so patient with me. I have lots more coming up to post over the next couple weeks including a couple of overdue snowboarding movies! We now resume our normal blogging… West coast, surfing, snowboarding, golf, Canucks, food, etc…. you know how it goes! :)


Sunday, February 21st, 2010

We hit up another night at the invite-only Club Bud NHL party at the Commodore Ballroom. I had an absolute blast tonight… there were tons of celebrities on the red carpet and partying inside Club Bud tonight, and it was nice to hang out with a couple of new and old friends.

Me, Amy, John and Rebecca

Here’s myself, Amy, Chris Walts, and Rebecca Bollwit inside Club Bud.

Here’s a photo I took of Chris Walts (the other Club Bud Party Crasher winner) and his friend Mike before the craziness started. Also check out the cute couple Rebecca and John Bollwit who were there to take photos/report on the red carpet as well!

Michael Buble and Lainey Liu (Lainey Gossip)

Lainey Gossip (Lainey Liu) showed up on the red carpet with none other than Michael Bublé! She also showed up with Matthew Morrison and Mark Salling from Glee who all went out to dinner together. I’d say that Lainey rolls with a pretty awesome entourage! ;)

I managed to grab a photo with him and make a stupid face :)

Mark Salling (Glee) and Lainey Gossip

Here’s Lainey and Mark Salling (Puck) from Glee.

Matthew Morrison (Glee)

Matthew Morrison (Will Schuester from Glee) was also there. I managed to get a photo with every celebrity tonight but in the interest of not showing my ugly mug beside their famous faces I cropped myself out of most of the photos, haha.

Jon Hamm (Mad Men)

Here’s the very sexy Jon Hamm from Mad Men.

Hayden Christensen Hayden Christensen

Hayden Christensen (Star Wars) was also there.

Logan Huffman (V)

Logan Huffman, from the TV series ‘V’ was also in attendance with real-life and on-screen friend Jesse Wheeler (plays Brandon in ‘V’) was there. I am a HUGE fan of ‘V’ (and sci-fi in general… the world needs more sci-fi shows) and I could not have been more excited to see them there. I ended up fangirling quite a bit with them, and Amy and I ended up talking to them most of the night. They were fun to hang out with!

Stana Katic (Castle) Stana Katic (Castle)

I was also excited to see Stana Katic there from the TV show ‘Castle’… she’s a great actress and it’s my favourite Monday night show. She was super nice.

Warren Christie (Actor) CTV News Reporter and Canadian Comedian Geoff Stults and Warren Christie (Actors) Cammi Granato (US Women's Hockey)

Also in attendance were Cammi Granato (US women’s hockey captain), Geoff Stults (October Road, Wedding Crashers), Warren Christie (October Road), and tons of TV station reporters.

It was a great night! I took a photo of Amy with the Glee cast as well, and here’s Chris Walts, Sunny (organizer of Club Bud from Karyo-Edelman) and myself… I’m making a pout/duck face because I am super tired after two nights of partying!

Phew! Well, big Canada-USA hockey game tomorrow. Can’t believe it’s only Day9/10 of the Olympics now. Is there really another week to go? Crazy!
