Hello, E.V. readers!
I’m still finding my footing here at E.V., but I wanted to make sure that I got the word out about this VERY sexy week! This is one hot and sexy Summer we’re having this year, and this week is a fine representation of exactly how sexy our city really is!
SEX TALK IN THE CITY
WHERE: Museum Of Vancouver, 1100 Chestnut Street
WHEN: Now – Sept. 2
DESCRIPTION: “Sex Talk in the City is a multifaceted exhibition that teases out how people in Vancouver learn about sexuality, define pleasure, and respond to particular politics. Sex Talk in the City addresses issues of sexual expression, diversity, politics, and education in a fun, approachable, and thought-provoking manner. Sex isn’t only biological, it’s cultural.
Visitors can expect to gain context on the materials and stories they are exposed to every day – from online dating to safe sex ads to the pride parade. You’re sure to leave recalling your own “birds and bees” talk with your parents and other such stories.”

WHERE: Waldorf Hotel, 1489 East Hastings St.
WHEN: Sat., Aug. 17 – 9pm to 2am
COST: $15 at the door / $12 in advance, or in zombie costume

This year we’re staging a 100% venue takeover of the legendary WALDORF CABARET – the oldest surviving Tiki Bar in North America!
Note that this year, we’ve changed the name to reflect the massive upscaling to our biggest Zombie party to date. This just might be not only the biggest Zombie themed party Vancouver’s ever seen, but also the biggest alternative-themed party in general! What used to be known as Zombie-A-Go-Go is now called HOUSE OF 1000 ZOMBIES!”

Want to gush about an experience that was new to you, to understanding ears? Curious about what real kinky lifestyles and relationships are like, beyond what you’ve read in recent blockbuster novels? Then the Newbie Munch is just the right place for you! Although this event is targeted at people who are new to the scene, more experienced players are welcome as well (as someone will need to answer all those questions!!). This would be a great place to bring friends who’ve expressed interest but aren’t sure about jumping into attending a party! Menu and info is available at :http://tippermenu.blogspot.com/ . They do have good gluten-free options, including GF buns for burgers! The RSVP is under the name “Andi” — we’ll be in the back room!”

EAST VAN MUNCH
Third Wednesday of every month
WHERE: Trout Lake, near the picnic pavilion
WHEN: Wed., Aug 21 – 5:30 to 8:30
DESCRIPTION: “A Munch is a fun social gathering, in a casual setting, of people with an interest in BDSM/kink . There is no fetish dress-up or play; casual conversation is not limited to BDSM/kink. We’ll meet nearby the Trout Lake covered picnic area: http://goo.gl/maps/WM4eo. I’ll be there early and will bring my wreck beach blanket. If anyone is able to bring portable/lawn chairs that would be helpful. The pavilion itself has been reserved so we will most likely not be able to make use of it. Last month the park was incredibly busy and we had to relocate to the other side of the path and closer to the beach. I expect this will be the case again, even still i should be able to find a spot within view of the pavilion and will prepare a visual indicator with the image I’ve used as my profile pic.
BYO food (& plate/utensils/etc) for yourself (if you want to bring something to share that’s cool too!). There are fountains in the park and a spigot/tap. There is a concession stand very close and a coffee shop in the rec center. There are bathrooms nearby -including a wheelchair stall- but are not terribly clean. There are also accessible bathrooms in the rec center a little farther away but still pretty close. The bathrooms are segregated multi-stalled facilities not gender neutral.”
