Vancouver Elites Slurp It, Soak It, and Party Bus It Up!
In the Vancouver heat this past Saturday, Yelp Elite and their guests gathered at Sunset Beach where they were met with morning sunshine shooters before boarding the Cherry Bomb Party Bus (care of Vancouver Party Bus). Inside a stripper pole, more shots and “Carebear,” our most caring bus driver, greeted us as we started our boozy bus tour de downtown in search of Slurpee brain freezes. With tongue colours changing to all sorts of hues and the vodka flowing, yelpers rocked out to Caroline P’s CD of summer tunes on our way to our final destination: Vancouver’s Largest Water Fight.
Sugar-rushed, we locked and loaded our water guns, gracing a West End alley with our preparation antics. (Special thanks to the Dairy Queen on Denman who let us use their “Customer Only Bathroom” to fill up some extra water.) War paint, smuggled on board by Sarah O, helped us physically prepare for battle, while Yelp-esque Band-Aids brought by Roanna Z took care of a few “fictitious” wounds.
Into battle we marched, a united Yelp front armed with our dollar store pistols. Getting sloshy and sloppy didn’t take us too long as water bomb balloons hailed from the sky and buckets of water drenched us from behind.
Triumphant in being the wettest, we returned to the bus where the pole finally got some good use by Reena M, Jenni O and…is that Brett C ?! To see all of the incriminating photo evidence, visit our Flickr page and read the first hand accounts in the reviews.
