July 2019 - Oh Canada, Stampede, 3rd annual BUB crawl and more

A few fun moments early in the month before Stampede started up.  Stayed with my drink canadian beer theme, began working as a business developer and playing as a local sailor again.

Day 4 - Invited by an old friend Dan Vacon (lead singer of the Dudes) to watch him and a few others do a few acoustic sets while I ate and drank for free. Thanks buddy.

Day 5 - Boot recovery and Pipeworx party

Side Story - Some how left Ryan's Cantina party on Saturday with the wrong boots.  But I really wasn't sure until I asked around and heard back that another Ryan who got in a taxi in his socks with someone else's boots in his hand. Lucky news was that Ryan was awesome enough to drive my boots to my place pre the Pipeworx party. Thanks Ryan!

That's a bouncer impressed with my

no drink past that one.  "Riding the line."

Day 7 - simply being a good designated driver for a friend. Perfect timing catching cool fireworks on the way to get them at Wildhorse.









Day 8 - BC/DC brought their Nelson, BC AC/DC cover band to the Wildhorse. Steve and friends enjoyed and then stuck around to make a private area where we could interview people as representatives of an Edmonton Radio station.  It's a famous one.

Enjoyed watching this jackass use
his puppy to meet a girl every 5 min
on the train ride downtown.
