TL;DR: Vancouver Oppo meet with David Obuchowski, if you have not RSVP’d, please do below. Date & Time: June 29th at 6:00pm at Granville Island Brewing. Looking forward to it! I’ll have my Fiesta ST. Estimated attendance: 10 people (give or take a few)
Hello everyone, it was brought to my attention that David Obuchowski (Automotive writer, Jalopnik contributor and Tempest podcast host) is coming to Vancouver for a few days so I reached out to him to ask if he wanted to grab a few beers with fellow Jalops/Oppos. He’s down for it.
He’s in Vancouver on 27th through to the 30th of June with the 28th and 29th being full days and will also be going to Victoria and Chemainus. So we’re having it on the 29th since that seems like the best day for everyone so far. Also, he’s looking to see if anyone has a story for Tempest in BC/Canada.
I feel like Granville Island is probably a good location, most of us know where it is and it is more car friendly than some places in Vancity. Also, we’ve done this before and know that Granville Island brew pub doesn’t take food orders past 7pm.
Lowest underground level of the parkade accessed off Old Bridge Street, approximate address is 1450 Old Bridge Street. Just keep driving down until you hit the bottom. If your vehicle doesn’t fit or we need more space due to how busy the island is, we can park across the street.
