who doesn't love an excuse to buy a new black dress?  deemed 'the blackout' as a bit of a marketing nerd joke (i assure you no one was intoxicated to the point of blacking out), we recently set out for a night of fun for vanessa's stagette.  and i must say, my fellow bridesmaid jessica planned a mean party here in the city!


we began the night at 1181 lounge on davie street.  there's no better way to start out than with hot, shirtless bartenders teaching us how to make cocktails!  we enjoyed some drinks there before the limo picked us up for some tunes and a quick city tour.


dinner was at the reflections patio lounge at hotel georgia which was stunning!  you simply cannot beat the vibe there, and we even had a mini celebrity encounter when mary zilba from the real housewives of vancouver sat at the table next to us!  we then headed to granville street for some dancing and perhaps a few more drinks.  was such a great evening, can't wait for the wedding!
