Set your clocks Vancouver
I bet you can remember exactly where you were when the opening ceremonies for the Olympics were happening. Me, I was at the Shark Club with some long-time friends and some new ones, who wouldn't stop talking when I was trying to take in every breath-taking moment.
Not sure if I'm just a nostalgic kind of person and want to one day say I saw every moment of that historical event.
The world's biggest sporting event, which is similar to the Olympics, takes place every four years, starts tomorrow and for those who aren't in the loop, they also have an opening ceremony.
Since we can't all be there, CBC is airing the World Cup opening ceremonies at 5a.m. tomorrow. I know it's early, but really, wouldn't it be nice to see it in a spot where others are gathered, soaking in the world spirit of friendship, county pride and of course, cut-throat completion.
No really, the competition part is what gets out adrenalin and testosterone flowing, but the feeling of the World coming together in spirit of everyone being the best they can, that's worth getting up for, don't' you think?
I will be.
Cafe Amici at 1344 Commercial Drive is opening their doors, as they will be every morning for the World Cup, and will be showing the opening ceremonies. They are making it an event, and bringing in authentic African food!
FYI...And don't let the small outside look of Cafe Amici fool you, like many of the 'little' spots on Commercial, they have a back room complete with leather sofas and a big screen. Yep, my kind of spot!
I'm not done yet...
After the opening ceremonies, you can head over the Afro Hair Studio at 4th and Commercial. They will be open at 7a.m. for the South Africa and Mexico games.
Little rumour is that you might even get to shake your booty as they might fire up a DJ!
Set your clocks Vancouver, or just don't go to sleep.
