happy friday!

If Friday night finds me having a drink in an atmospheric pub with a friend, it's a good start to the weekend, and one of my favourite areas in Vancouver to go out is Gastown. Gastown's a historic district by Vancouver standards--the city isn't very old though and a lot of Gastown cobbled, old-world charm was manufactured in the 70s. Nonetheless, it's a pleasant place for a Friday night, especially since the seabus is just a ten minute walk away (I have to take a 15-minute boat ride to get to the nearby suburb where I grew up). I got to spend two Fridays in a row ranting and raging and recalling with the lovely Alexa, who you may remember I visited in Lyon earlier this year...

Happy Friday everyone! Do you prefer to spend Fridays in the pub or flaked on the couch? (I think there's a lot to be said for that option too).

I'm more of a couch girl, but that does look and sound like lots of fun! :D
I love your snoopy shirt

I'm not keen on the pub really, but I'd like to be out dancing- lindyhopping! I also like the couch though!

@Kezzie: Lindy-hopping sounds great! I learned a bit of swing once, but never enough to do it properly except with my sister. :)

It all depends on how stressful my week has been as to whether I go out on Friday night or not.

That top you have on in the first picture is adorable.

@Lauren: for sure, although often I try to force myself out anyway because I know I'll perk up.

Gastown looks so pretty! And I prefer to spend my weekend out! It makes me antsy to sit at home!

I'm definitely a couch potato. I guess my perfect friday night would be at home but with some of my favorite people over to have drinks and laugh at silly things!
