Stuff to Do

Blood Alley

My husband rawks my casbah, and he knows me really, really well. So he got me a great present for my birthday that suited me just fine.

We were part of the Vancouver Police Museum’s “Sins of the City” walking tour. So he took me for a two hour walk on Saturday. It’s a two hour tour of Gastown, Chinatown, and Japantown. I’m really stoked about getting this photo, and learning more about the rich history of vice in the city of Vancouver. It was a difficult choice between that photo and the photo of the trapdoor to the basement of a business in Chinatown. That business used to be a gambling den!!

I could have gone my whole life without knowing what Mitzi the Stripper did with ping-pong balls, but hey.
