I usually like to check out the As Seen on TV shit, but dude dont make me sit though the whole spiel when I just want to buy the damn thing.. Last year I couldn't buy a Sham-wow cause I had to watch the whole presentation.. Walked away with 10 other people wanting it too, saved myself money by buying a bulk pack of microfibers from Costco.

I wouldn't go for the BBQ, you can get that shit anywhere and better quality too. But I always end up getting mini donuts and tickets for the prize home.

Speaking of the PNE....

ScanBC
‪#‎Vancouver‬ Police are responding to the PNE, 3300 E Hastings St for a report of two Carnies fighting.

It's just not the fair unless carnies are fighting

I went yesterday, mainly just to be fat and eat everything. I should've saved all the pics from my snapchat story, gdi.

Red velvet donuts were OK. Mini donut poutine was actually pretty good. It's a unique texture, and I liked it haha. Ribs, pulled pork and brisket was pretty good. Not like, amazing, but not bad at all. I got them from Gator BBQ, and the ribs were so good we all totally forgot about the sauce. Also tried the Chicken and Waffles, and it was pretty good, IMO. On the way back out, I bought another one and gave it to my mom, and she loved it lol. I also went to the Craft Beer thing. It was kinda small, but all the beers I tried were pretty good. The little cup thing they give you is kinda neat too; it's gonna go to all the house parties with my friends now lol.

You'll get in easily after the initial mad rush. Give it half an hour, so 11:30ish. It varies from year to year. Usually, the entrance by Pacific Coliseum has the shortest lineup, while Playland and main entrances are pretty nuts. I saw one C-lai run faster than Insane Bolt to make it before the 1:00 pm deadline at the PC entrance, hee hee. I was about to get my hand stamped for reentry later in the evening when I saw this spectacle.

IIRC, there was little to no lineup at around 1:00 pm at the PC entrance.

It just sucks now that they sell tickets for the prize home year round online instead of just to fair goers.

Plenty of free street parking on Hastings. Gotta remember to get out by 3:00 PM. for those who have or friend has handicap card, you can park on residential streets for three hours. It's a Vancouver thing. I don't have a card, so not 100% sure.

I was looking for you, but so many people. You'd think a father would be able to find his son a little easier. I was mainly at the marketplace. Ceramic knives, ftmfw! Get new set every year for life. Watched some hula dancers. Meh, being part Polynesian I know what's good. Anyway blew the joint. Will come back later in evening. Got hand stamped.
