go big or go home

One of the first things I did when I got to the East Village Sales and Experience Centre for the VIP sneak preview on Saturday was check out the interactive map that I did some work on. The second thing I did, naturally, was snap a photo of one of my own pop-up reviews. It's the real-life equivalent to Googling yourself.

It was quite an amazing afternoon. There was a great turnout of the curious and loads of interest in both the developments that were featured and in the area itself. There really is a lot to love about East Village.

For instance, this is me enjoying my new river-front condo. Can I pour you a little snort?

I took some rather cool photos (if I do say so myself) of the scale model that dominates the lobby of the centre. May I direct you over to my latest post at Cantos/National Music Centre to see some photos featuring the future NMC building that will be a cornerstone of the new East Village?

If music and pictures aren't your thing, perhaps you are more interested in words and food? Check out my article on the Calgary Food Truck scene that I am thrilled made it into the latest issue of EVE. Certainly one of the glossiest, most stylish magazines I have ever wormed my way into.

Awesomesauce! Love the pictures.

Looks like it's going to be a pretty impressive structure.

It's going to be pretty incredible, Al. There are bound to be haters but I think it looks grand.

Barbara, you are amazing!

Me? Pshaw.

I do have to confess that I don't actually have a condo, Vicomtesse. Sadly that was a green screen photo.

Congrats in getting into EVE! That was a fine article, and I am a huge fan of the whole food truck scene.

Thanks, WC! I have been generating website content for them, but it's really satisfying to get into the big glossy print magazine that comes out a couple of times a year.
Every city needs a great food truck scene. Have you had much chance to check out Vancouver's yet?
