Happy Leap Year! Leap Day is a perfect day to meet, mingle, and take a leap of faith in the world of dating. To celebrate this special day (it only happens once every four years after all), Events & Adventures Vancouver went down to the Wolf & Hound — one of our city’s finest traditional Irish pubs.
According to an old Irish legend (or possibly history), Saint Brigid struck a deal with Saint Patrick that would allow women to propose to men—rather than the other way around—every four years. So what better way to spend leap day than by having fun with other singles from all over town who are also looking to build relationships with people in a way that isn’t boring and traditional? Our members enjoyed a cozy atmosphere, local craft beers on tap, and all in all, had good ‘craic’ thanks to the great company!
Speaking of Irish traditions, our Events & Adventures chapter kept with that theme and joined in on what is hands down the best St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the city: the Celtic festival, or Ceilidh. A ceilidh is a social event with folk music, singing, traditional dancing, and storytelling—and it’s always a blast! We will be bringing our crew down to the Imperial Theatre this Saturday night for an evening of live bands, traditional music, and Irish dancers. So don’t miss out on this legendary party!
As for the actual day of St Patrick’s Day on March 17th, what better way is there to celebrate that with an intimate group of friends at one of East Vancouver’s finest establishments? We’re going to be hosting an event at Fet’s Whisky Kitchen, where we’ll be sampling some of the finest Irish whiskeys. Fet’s has over 750 different bottlings—one of the largest selections in the world. So let’s hear a round of “Sláinte” for all these wonderful Irish traditions, and so many chances to celebrate while making new friends and meting great people!
