David M.'s Christmas Alone In No Fun City 2014
Dec 21, 9-11:30 pm
Railway Club
579 Dunsmuir, Vancouver
It's the 29th year of the Vancouver No Fun Christmas tradition! Obviously the 30th year will get all the attention, because who cares about the 29th year of anything? I mean, the traditional gift for 29 years is furniture. Furniture. Anyhow, if you see it this year instead of next year you'll get just as much if not more Yuletide entertainment, and AT POPULAR PRICES, for that is how Capitalism works. So join No Fun's David M. and his friends Dave (Sneaky Dragon podcast) Dedrick, Ed (Liquor Kings) Hurrell, and Pete (Wardells) Campbell at Vancouver's venerable Railway Club, because IT JUST ISN'T CHRISTMUS WITHOUT "U"!
