There are certain things a man needs to do in his life to prove his worth as a man — like building a deck, making home brew, and French women. For a weekend of events that’ll leave you feeling mantastic, hit up the Vancouver Men’s Show.
This weekend the Vancouver Men’s Show takes over the TRADEX in Abottsford to bring you the first and only men-specific consumer trade show in BC. Here’s a list of the some of the not-to-miss events:
99.3 The Fox presents the Best Moustache Contest at 6:30pm. Whether sportin a handlebar, a Burt Reynolds, or still trying to cultivate that Ron Jeremy porn star look, this is your chance to show the world that you can grow facial hair, and it’s damn sexy.
The Team 1040 Poker Night goes from 12-6pm in the Beer Gardens (doors open at 10am). The Bachelor Plan girls will be dealing a 3 table Texas Hold’em tournament with lots of wicked prizes. Register on Saturday at the Investors Group Booth and then get there early to ensure you get a seat (preferably close to The Bachelor Plan Girls).
After a not-so-hard day at the show, join us and the amazing Briefed Girls at Phoenix Pub for the Briefed Men’s Show After Party with DJ SLiP. The beautiful ladies have a load of freebies to be given out provided by our friends at the Vancouver Men’s Show, so make sure to spin the Briefed PRIZE WHEEL to win. Limo transfers available from our friends Phantom Limo and Party Bus for $5 per transfer. Also enjoy $3.99 Smirnoff Vodka’s, Select shots and Bottles of Canadians all night long.
Free cover and express line available till 10pm with flyer or Men’s Show ticket stub. More info here.
Watch the Bombers vs Ti-Cats at 10am in the CFL’s Eastern Final; then, at 1:30pm, watch our Lions send those pesky Eski’s back to their igloo (Edmonton). It all goes live on the jumbo screen in The Abbotsford Dodge Tailgate Party presented by JACK FM, with live BBQ shows at each halftime.
