Hey Vancouver folks, in case you weren’t aware, Glenfiddich are rolling their Cask of Dreams through our fair city on Thursday and Friday this week. That’s Thursday April 26th and Friday April 27th in case you’re reading this in a different week. If that is the case, you’ve missed it, by the way. That’s a shame, it was [[super fun/really dull]]! (note to self: fill this in after the event)
The “Cask of Dreams” is an American oak barrel (really a series of them) that you get to inscribe a wish on, and it might come true! It should be noted that if your wish is to buy a bottle of whisky finished in your optimistically-inscribed vessel later this year, then it has a somewhat higher chance of coming true than most of the others.
Here’s the schedule:
Thursday April 26th
10.00am-11.00am – Stanley Park & Lions Gate Bridge (610 Pipeline Road)
11.30am-12.00pm – Granville Island (Anderson St and W 2nd Ave)
12.30pm-3.00pm – Vancouver Convention Centre and Olympic Cauldron (1055 Canada Place)
4.00pm-7.00pm – The Irish Heather (RSVP required) (210 Carrall Street)
Friday April 27th
9.45am-10.45am – Grouse Mountain (6400 Nancy Green Way or 6000 Cypress Bowl Road)
11.15am-1.15pm – City Centre Canada Line Station & Yaletown (Georgia and Granville)
2.00pm-3.00pm – English Bay (1600 Beach Ave)
4.00pm-6.00pm – Alberni & Bute (768 Bute St)
In the unlikely event I have any stalkers out there, I’ll be at the Granville Island stop on Thursday! My crack undercover security team will be watching though so don’t try anything funny. I’m just saying.
