Briefed on the Weekend (September 16)

There’s only a day to go, so it’s time to start making some plans, lest you spend the entire weekend on your computer, in sweatpants, Googling for those Scarlett Johansson nude cell phone pics (do that tonight instead).



Ain’t no party like a lederhosen party cause a lederhosen party don’t stoppen.

This Friday and Saturday night check out Oktoberfest at the Vancouver Alpine Club. The Beer Barrels band will provide live tunes as you down German beer and challenge strangers to yodeling contests. Spring for a pair of funny pants and not only will you fit in at the party, they’re perfect for a game of hide the bratwurst with mein fraulein when you get home.

Tickets are $30 and the doors open at 7pm.

Turtle Power

Tough week at work and you’d rather wind down than leder-up? Donatell-us we don’t have something for you to do.

Friday at midnight the Rio Theatre is rockin the original Ninja Turtles movie. Relive your youth with Splinter and the gang for just $8 bucks; a good price since you might also want to get in on whatever made Michaelangelo so calm and cool (as if it wasn’t obvious). Dress up as your favourite turtle and get a buck off.

And remember, ‘Forgiveness is divine, but never pay full price for late pizza.’

Rugby World Cup

We finally got a team in a World Cup and we actually ain’t that bad.

After a dramatic win over Tonga, underdog Canada is up against highly ranked France in the Rugby World Cup. Sounds like a good cause to get behind. So stay up all night, pass a girl off to one of your Wings, and watch him work his magic in the scrum until he realizes she was just a Hooker (no wonder she was so good at securing balls during scrummages).

The action begins at 1:30am and you can catch it at the Blarney Stone in Gastown.
