    blarneystone - always fun, best on friday night (don't try a fake, they scan them)
    shine - they have an 80's nite every thursday
    bourbon or cambie are always a blast on a saturday, especially with a big group of people (no cover at these)
    some of the pot cafe's can be a good time (new amsterdam is my fave)
    stanley park has some really beautiful scenery

    Kitsilano Beach is nice.

    Take the tram up Grouse mountain if it is clear out, and look down on the city from there, it is a great view, day and night.
    Gastown is funky.
    If you rent a car, the drive up to Squamish is beautiful too.

    the thing about gastown is explore the side streets. if you just walk the main one you get alot of tourist stuff, which is still ok but there are some really cool shops in that area in general...

    that was easy to find... www.purplethistle.org

    here is what their site says;;;

    The Purple Thistle is a new-school youth project located on Commercial Drive. If you are between the ages of 15 - 26 and want to get involved with a funky croo, check us out. You can be in school or out, have artistic skills or not, have big ideas or not and you can attend as much or as little as you like.

    The centre is democratically run, and works something like a community centre, something like a youth centre, something like a college. You can get involved with a currently running project, work on your own thing, meet cool kids and/or find the support to get new projects happening.
    We have a whole range of groups running, from visual arts to writing and publishing to travel to photo, as well several affiliated projects on the go. Each of the groups works with a mentor to develop participants’ skills individually and collaborates on major, on-going community projects like magazine publishing, murals and exchange trips, among much else.
    You can hang out, do your own work, get support to develop ideas, work with some great mentors, get career and educational information, get help finding a job/school/training, use our gear.
    Schedule
    Our schedule changes quite often, but this space is usually kept up to date. We have a long series of classes, workshops, events, projects and programs, most of which usually stay in place at a particular time and day of the week, but things do shift around.

    why is the good soundin stuff always for those under 30? i think thats age discrimination:p

    I hear ya, but I don't think it is their fault. I see no reason why 30+ people can't start up similar groups. I wonder if the reason they don't is that they kind of gave up on fun. Most seem to be so busy making a living, they are missing out on life. I remember going to college when I was 21 and feeling so old......lol. Yet, I also saw how different my attitude was towards learning. Most of the 18 yr. old students were totally disinterested.

    I hope that I live to be 90 and if I do, I will make a point of going to some hot dance club and gettin down.

    yeah, i'm not a typical 34. certain 'friends' of mine think i should grow up and stop being a kid. i think its sad they think that 30 means the end of the road. i identify better with younger crowds usually more so than i do with my age group...especially the ones who have had children. ugh.

    i certainly hope that 30 isnt the end of the road!!

    i've known people in their 70's and 80's who are still going strong, living life.

    ps, what's a "typical 34"? hahaha!!

    make sure you send me an invite LOL, i'll bring my 3-d holo-recorder
