Sled Island
I know I mentioned this last week but still... go.
June 24th- June 27th at various venues
Please see website for ticket info

AND I quote from the web page "One of Calgary's Newest & Hottest night clubs is so popular because of its OLD SCHOOL/RETRO vibe. Along with the funky decor, the DJ brings it back to the 80's & 90's with the best old school Mash-ups! Vinyl has revolutionized the night club scene by moving backwards through time. "
Didn't the place just open? I'm not a bar going kinda girl but who can turn down a retro dance party with a bunch of strangers?
located 213 10 Ave SW, Cover $8 (includes coat check)

My Choice Picks if I wasn't already slammed full of stuff this weekend:
Sled Island or Calgary Jazz Festival ... (or if you are particularly ambitious BOTH) nothing beats being music drunk. THOUGH if you are under the age of 25 you might actually want to go check out Vinyl but then I might doubt that you'd even remember the 80's. Of course I plan to buy some num-num's at the Stephen Avenue market this summer... I just forgot today. Tuna was calling my name and so was "Bear-a-me".
