We're going to do something a little different this Saturday. We have fun practicing English at the coffee shop, at the pubs, and all over the city, but this Saturday we're going to have fun just for the sake of fun. Put your dictionaries away for a night, and get ready to dance and drink with music, lights and friends!
We're going to Gossip Nightclub. Gossip is a big fancy club near BC Place Stadium, which is famous for holding the Olympics and for it's retractable roof. If you're coming from the direction of downtown or the closest Skytrain station (Stadium-Chinatown), the easiest way to get there is to walk down Beatty Street until you reach the Stadium, then walk around the Stadium until you're on the other side. Then you will be on Pacific Boulevard, and from there you should be able to see Edgewater Casino. Gossip is right next to Edgewater Casino, so if you get to there, you're at Gossip.
Although Gossip Nightclub is packed with local Canadians on most nights, on Saturday nights they are very popular with ESL students! If you go to an ESL school, you might see other people from your school hanging around. the DJ's (disc jockey) for the night will be Downlowe, KIDD and a surprise special guest, who will play music like electronic dance, R&B, hip hop and party anthems. Best of all, there will Easter Egg giveaways of candy and shots of liquor, and I will have a certain number of FREE DRINKS to give away for us! I'm not sure how many free drinks I'll get, yet, but I will give preference to people who RSVP first when handing them out. Sign up early to make sure I can give you free liquor!
There is a fee if $15 to get into the club. That is pretty normal. DO NOT wait in line to pay cover like everybody else. They gave me tickets, so buy your tickets from me, instead. That way, you don't have to wait a while like others, and also, I will be given more free drinks to hand out to us! Free drinks are good! I will come to Waves on Thursday and/or Friday, so you can meet me there to pick up the tickets. If that doesn't work, meet me outside of Gossip, and you can get your ticket there. If I am not outside, text message me, and I will come outside.
You must be at least 19 years old to attend; don't forget that you need two valid pieces of identification, and that at least one of your IDs must show your photo. You're allowed to show up late, but if you show up after 11 PM, they will make you pay an extra $5. If on the day of the event you have any problems (lost, can't get in), feel free to text message me at 778.918.7156.
