I had almost decided to stay home for the night when my friend, Rachel called me with tickets to the Vancouver Shangri-La Hotel event. The tickets were $100 each and I’d actually considered going to the event so I didn’t take much encouraging.
I made Merica & I fettuccine carbonara (no cream mmm) to line out stomachs ahead of a big night. We drank an easy rosé with dinner.
Merica had something to celebrate and had saved a bottle of Veuve Cliquot for two years to celebrate with. We popped that and got ready at hers then grabbed a taxi into town.
At just before ten we were the first people there! I thought people would arrive earlier with an impending deadline on 12pm but I guess not.
We met some lovely people and was invited upstairs to a Dom Perignon party. It was packed shoulder to shoulder. We had the count down up there then went back down to the other party to see Rachel DJing.
Took a taxi to Cabana to see everyone I know there and a boogie then home to bed.
Actually I was eating celery sticks and hummus when Scott got in about 3am and gave me a fright!
All in all, a good night but nothing special, not that New Year Eve often is.
