Friday Drinks, dancing, and awesome people @ The Roxy!

Already looking forward to our next big Friday night party? Look no further than here. I have once again managed to secure our entire group free cover to the roxy on August 15 just so long as you arrive before 9:30. The last time we hosted an event at the Roxy we had the back room reserved which got extremely hot and squishy. This time i figure we should just claim space in the main area. So look for our group sitting and standing near the booth's along the wall when you walk in. I'm expecting 100+ people to attend this event so it shouldn't be too hard to find people even if you arrive later than 9:30.

We're a friendly and easy going bunch so don't worry if you can't or won't dance (i certainly can't either). Just show up and have a good time with us!

In order to get in for free you just have to arrive before 9:30 and say that you're with the meetup group. For anybody that arrives after 9:30 you will be able to go to the vip line but you will have to pay cover to get in ($13). Doors open at 8:00 and i plan to get there at about 8:30.

The Roxy has live music every night of the week which is predominantly rock focused. You can also expect the usual DJ stuff.


As usual I will be handing out blue wrist bands to people as they arrive throughout the evening. This is a way to identify and remember who is part of the group as the night goes on and some people move on to the dance floor These wrist bands do cost me money so if you have a few dollars to spare, consider donating via the donation option on the left side of our page. If you already have a wrist band then please remember to bring it.

If you can't find the group or if you have any questions on the night of the event then just send me a

to[masked] 6208. It's going to be an awesome night! I look forward to seeing you all there!

    Hi! My friend and I came across your group at The Roxy and ended up having a great time meeting and dancing with a number of you. Just wanted to say thank you for being a friendly bunch and for a lovely evening. Hopefully will meet you all again in the near future. If we met that night and you'd like to keep in touch, please give me a holler :). My friend Camille was wearing the black Marilyn Monroe-esque dress & I was the one in the hot pink dress.

      Thanks Marc! I'm not sure if Camille has officially joined the group yet, but I'm sure she will soon. If you were the chap with the awesome mohawk and the "balls" t-shirt :D, then yes we met & had a fun chat! Although you'd run out of wristbands by then.

    • Bonny

      That's him! I've ordered more wristbands, so hopefully we'll have more to share by the next big event.

    Just an update. I had to go down to the Vancouver Police Department in person to give a statement even though they had taken one over the phone. The police officer who took my statement at the station actually laughed! Not at me but because the incident is so bizarre. She works Granville and what happened doesn't fit anything she knows. It doesn't bother me because I don't understand it either. She was also quite surprised I didn't have a concussion from the pictures I showed her. It looks like somebody hit me across the side of the head with a board. Anyway, she said they'll send it to the crime analyst and look for patterns. It may be a one-off random thing or a trend somewhere. But just be careful out there. Be aware of what's around you. And thank you to all of the people who wished me well. It is much appreciated.

    That was Awesome! I didn't have that much fun in a long time.

    Thanks, it was fun. Unfortunately on the way to the Skytrain Station I got sucker punched and I don't know who did it. All I was doing was crossing the street, listening to music, looking at my phone, and suddenly something slammed into the side of my head. My vision cleared after a few seconds and there was hardly anyone around when just before I got hit, there were a lot of people. Fortunately no cars were coming because I was bent over on a major street. Right now I have a rainbow halo in the vision of my left eye (and a huge swelling) and I hope it goes away by morning. Just letting you guys know to be careful because there are unprovoked attacks out there.

      Hope you're feeling better and the doctors say you're okay. I've made a General Safety Tips topic in the Discussion Forum. I hope it will prevent something like that from happening again. http://www.meetup.com...­]

      It's highly unusual for anyone from our group to be off on their own at night. It is unlikely to be repeated but it is smart for us to learn from it

  • Jeff W.

    Lost my suit jacket last night; if anyone managed to grab it for me, please call [masked] and ask for Jeff =)

    August 16

    • Jeff W.

      No luck yet. I haven't had time to get in touch with their office manager (only there during the day between noon and 5pm). I'm hoping to speak to them tomorrow

      August 17

    • Tammy S

      Let me know if I can help

      August 18

  • Marc

    Great turnout! Thanks to everyone who was able to attend!! And thanks to Ian for making this possible!!! -
    Keith, I'm shocked about what happened to you and hope you're doing super well now! You're an awesome person and you'll bounce back better than ever!! -
    Okay, folks, I have a request: I got 2 photos taken with a super nice, but super intimidating ('cause he probably could have squished me between his fingers if he wanted), tall and muscular (6-feet, 3-inches+, bigger than any of the bouncers at the club), black guy I'd not seen before. He had an awesome idea for 2 photos, but I forgot to ask him for contact info after he snapped them (so I don't have a copy of the photos, sigh). Some people took a photo of us taking the photos, so I'm hoping those people -or better yet, that guy- read(s) this! ~:0)

    Uh, so... Found some drool between my, er, chest this morning. Must've meant we all had a good night! (Yes, I'm talking to you, Rochelle!) thanks to all who came and made the night so wonderful, welcoming and yes, wobbly. I hope everyone got home safely with new, exciting stories to tell. Happy birthday Henry!

    Hi all! As the number of the attendees is a little overwhelming for someone as new to this group as me, I'd like to ask if there's any gals wanna meet up with me somewhere around Roxy first and go in together. Let me know!

    Hey guys so sorry unable to make it after all!!! So sorry for the short notice! Really sorry to miss this -thanks Ian for organizing

    August 15

    • Rose

      Me too...unfortunately... Sorry. Have a blast guys.

      August 15

  • Ian

    It looks like we're going to get another huge group out to the Roxy! If you're like me and you're afraid of entering a room with over 100 people you haven't met before then i would strongly encourage you to show up at 8:30. That way it will still be a small-ish group as people continue to file in, and as an added bonus it won't be too loud as the live music doesn't start until about 9. I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow night!

    5 · August 15

    • Kevin

      I am afraid of entering a room with over 100 people. HEELLP I am too shy!

  • Laura

    Hey everyone! I'm brand new to meetup and this group but looking forward to meeting you! Im not technically new to Vanvouver as I lived here a year or so ago but I'd like to broaden my social circle and that can sometimes be easier said than done so this sounds like a great place to start!

    2 · August 15

  • Karthik S.

    Hi guys and gals! I'll be coming directly to Roxy around 9 pm. I'm shy at times and I've found it very hard to make friends in Vancouver. Hopefully I'll get to meet many of you today. Thank you for the invite, Ian.

  • Shauna

    I haven't been into the Granville scene in years. Dress code at The Roxy is pretty casual, right?

    August 15

    • Jana T

      I think ive seen a lot of pirate themed bachelorette partys there last time. Jeans and a shirt definitely seem acceptable as well.

    Hi all...I am new to this group. Sorry I couldn't make the gathering tonight but really want to know you all. Please keep me posted of your next gathering and I will try to make it. I am currently in Victoria and will be back to Vancouver in early September :-) Have fun and a great weekend!!!

    August 15

  • Linda W

    See you guys next time. Can't make it tonight.

    August 15

  • Ian

    Hey guys. In case anybody was planning to show up early, I had mistakenly wrote in the description that doors open at 7. They actually don't open until 8.

    August 15

  • Ronald L.

    Hey there, anyone who is interested to meet prior/for dinner, can meet me at the Red Card Sports Bar at 7pm as I'm told they have really good food there (http://www.redcardsportsbar.ca/foodmenu) . I've never been so I'm curious to find out. Ask for Ronald. If you are interested in joining us, please comment below so I know how many seats to get us.

    August 15

    • Rob

      Ronald, you should go Happy Hour meetup at Red Card then! Then you can do 2 in one night :)

    • Ronald L.

      That's a great idea! Ok, lets make it so.

  • Jenn

    maybe this sound like a good time...umm Im still super shy but want to have fun its like eating me up inside I NEED To go out maybe this....??? not forsure yet...but thinking it over...how was the last one..? dancing? anyone???

    1 · August 9

    • Jessica

      Hi Jenn! This is a super friendly group and I clicked with them right away when I joined in May. However, night clubs are not the easiest place to chat because of the noise level bit if you like to dance or drink, you'll love this event. Come out to some of the other events like Frizbee or Board Games for a chance to get to chat and get to know people better. Hope to see you at our events! If you want someone to hang with at Roxy's, just look for me on the dance floor and I'd be happy to introduce you to others.

      11 · August 10

    • Rob

      You should come out. It was a blast last time. They had a live band that played some great tunes.
