This Friday evening a long line will form outside of a church near Main Street and 10th. Unfortunately for Jesus and team, these are not God-fearing Christians looking to do a few Hail Marys to preemptively admonish their sins; namely the mass destruction they are about to inflict upon women in Vancouver’s nightclubs this weekend (the other Bush Doctrine).
No, they’re here for the perogies.
Friday Night Ukrainian Suppers (Perogy Night in Vancouver) are held on the first Friday of the month from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Holy Ukrainian Orthodox Church. For just 12 bucks you get a giant plate of delicious, hand-made, gut lining, hangover preventing perogies. The plate also comes with two cabbage rolls, sauerkraut, Ukrainian sausage and a coffee.
And you’re going need to all them eatables because you have a big night ahead of you. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 177 is just around the corner, where you can get drunk and share tales of manliness and warfare; then slip across the street to Planet Bingo, and retell those tall tales to women who are starting to look surprisingly good for their age.
