Got to keep a stiff upper lip, eh

It’s a shocking time to be a North American. Week in, week out, the news has continued to be filled with reasons to be grateful we live north of the border.

This would be a good year to take some time and really celebrate how damn lucky you are to be here in Canadaland (and you’re in the best part of it to boot). Here are some handy ways to get yer leaf on, craft-style. Give’r.

Festival Details: goldenspike.ca

Rocky Point Park in Port Moody has one of the better festivals going every Canada Day weekend. Three strong things Golden Spike Dayshas going for it:

  1. It runs all weekend
  2. You can get to it by Skytrain
  3. it’s right across the street from four really good breweries, who will be on hand at the fest as well, pouring great BC craft beer.

And guess what: all of those breweries have patios, something that our writer J. Random is keen to remind you of. See our Story Of The Week below.

STORY OF THE WEEK

ULLAGE & SPILLAGE:
Patio Season in the Lower Mainland

By J. Random

Yes, Mr. Editor, I’m aware this issue is all about travel, but who in their right mind leaves Vancouver this time of year? Ten million tourists simply can’t be wrong. We locals have suffered through the gloom of our wet winter and cold spring. We deserve to enjoy our summer, particularly when you consider our new collection of craft-brewery patios..
