Happy Hour x The Cascade Room x Mount Pleasant

Happy Hour at The Cascade Room on Main Street in Mount Pleasant with Colene, Nicolb, Vanessa Chu, and Angela Jung on August 25, 2010.

I got the privileged honour to drink and dine with four of Vancouver's absolutely loveliest and most delightful young female aspiring or up and coming creative professionals.

The inception of the evening started as a three way Twitter conversation between Colene, Nicole, and Angela about Pimm's, the alcoholic drink, with somebody recommending The Cascade Room on Main Street. Eventually, a happy hour excursion was planned to drink said drink. I noticed that I knew and had actually met all three ladies while each of them had not met one of the others. And thus, I weaseled my way into the dinning adventure, inviting Vannessa along with me.

Unfortunately, Cascade was out of Pimm's which made all the girls sad and sort of negated the impetus of the entire evening. I could not have cared less as I was on board for the delightful dining company.

Instead, we got a pitcher of strawberry Tom Collins. I like strawberry and I like Tom Collins. I enjoyed the fruity drink among my female company and relatively secure with my masculinity.

I thought the dishes we ordered, crisp polenta fries, mussels, calamari, and goat cheese pizza, made for really enjoyable cocktail food and fairly light dining.

As someone who has eaten at a lot of bars, this was an obviously much classier step up from typical bar food.

Vanessa and Nicole impersonated Vancouver's favourite serial entrepreneur and demanded I capture the moment. All in all, it was a genuinely enjoyable evening filled with some ridiculously interesting conversations. Many of us agreed on aspects of Vancouver's social scene. The time flew by and I found the tales and discussions about life and the relationships insightful and entertaining.
