We brought all our cupcakes to Grandview Park just before 1, and there were people there giving away free bread and organic produce! What good karma. It only took us about fifteen minutes to give them all away, thanks in part to Steph's shouting "FREE CUPCAKES!" at the top of her lungs, and probably also because it was Commercial Drive and the cupcakes were all vegan (people were seriously thrilled). Jeff and I came home and made soup with the free vegetables, and ate it with the free bread.
See a few more photos from the day here.

Amanda, Laryssa, and Steph came over (we were also joined briefly by Alice & Josh and Sarah & Onur) and we made five batches of vegan cupcakes! Four of them were to give away the following day, but after making the first batch of jelly donut cupcakes we decided we needed a batch that we could eat. We also made rum raisin, vanilla, and chocolate mint. Above is Laryssa doing a shot of the leftover hot buttered rum glaze from the raisin cupcakes.

My mom and Jimm were staying at the Four Seasons overnight for Jimm's birthday, so we had dinner at the restaurant there, Yew. The food was fantastic, and the space was really nice too: high ceilings, jars of pickles and preserves on display, glass tile placemats... My after-dinner Irish coffee came with shaved chocolate on top and walnut biscotti on the side, how lovely.

Work was dead, so I left early. I had a bit of time to kill before meeting someone, so I got a coffee and went and sat in the park. Watching the sun sink, listening to the water flow in the fountains, I felt more peaceful than I had in weeks.

It was inventory day at work, so I had to start at the ungodly time of 6:45am. Thankfully, we finished early so by 2pm I was in the Irish Heather, having an Angry Scotch Ale. Met up with Jeff and we walked through Gastown to his work, where he was kind enough to hook me up with another beer and a portobello mushroom & roasted garlic pizza.

Jeff and I went to the vegan brunch at Malloreigh's, and then hit up a garage sale which was mostly garbage, but everything was free. In the night time I ordered a pizza all for myself and Amanda and Laryssa came over; we drank beers and watched glorious 90s movies (Foxfire and SLC Punk).
