I've just come across an amazing new years party. That is going to be very different, more cozy, with a lot of authentic people and great music.
This is a very grassroots party. Aisle 45 is a community space used by dancers, artists and musicians. So it won't be your standard bar/nightclub NYE party.
Maybe last minute for some of us. But it looks really good so I'm going to see if we get in takers.
Everyone get a ticket and we will meetup there.
Aisle 45 New Year's Eve Gala

Wed. Dec 31, 2008

Friends, please join us as we gather at Aisle 45 this New Year's Eve to ring in 2009 with a gala extravaganza! The evening will feature Tambura Rasa, an exciting world fusion band with flamenco dancers, four top DJs and some fresh live hip-hop from around the globe. We're going over-the-top to make a legendary night of revelry that you will never forget.
Come sip on delicious cocktails and complimentary exotic tapas. At the strike of midnight we'll supply the champagne. Plus we'll have a few fun surprises to make the evening extra special.
The venue is the finest in the city. It features a tres sexy mezzanine overlooking a 104 year old heritage gallery and an underground room that feels like an ancient Italian theatre - all centrally located in the oldest district of Vancouver - Gastown.
Come celebrate and toast to newness with all your friends and bid fond farewell to 2008 as we embrace the New Year, bringing new ideas and inspiration to life for 2009!
