The parental unit of Vancouver Slop, Slop Press, had its website launch at Walrus gallery. The place was jam-packed full of tweeps, artists, hipsters, and Vancouverites in general.

I am not sure how wise the choice of  such a small venue was as this event was beyond popular. It was extremely difficult to move around. However, I commend the staff on the great service.

The food by Roaming Dragon, Re-Up BBQ, Benson Brother Cheese, and Bear Flag Wines was great. They kept making the food all night and the wine was flowing through out.

Everywhere I turned was a familiar face from online and IRL. The evening was full chatter and scrumptious appetizers. I felt bad for the servers trying to make sure everyone got a sample, but I had to pounce when I saw anything tasty.

Despite the drawbacks and big crowd, it was a fun night of friendly faces. I finally got to meet fashion blogger extraordinaires Nicole Soon of Le Mode du Jour and Lisa Wong aka Solo Lisa.

The cheese assortment from Benton Brothers Fine Cheese was superb. The servers were friendly and accommodating in the cramped venue with friendly smiles and warm comments.

I love the photo of the hip artist guy with his baby. I think it encapsulated the evening of hip culture and professionalism nicely.

It got pretty warm and crowded but it was a blast. It is hard to blame an event for being popular and for good reason.
