Never Mind Vancouver Burning, Tonight is Spacing Magazine Party Time

So apparently Vancouver took the Stanley Cup loss pretty well, I don't know if you heard anything about it.

We'll be sure to talk about that big hullabaloo from last night at a later date; the story certainly isn't going to fade away within the next few days, and you can guarantee that Vancouver will definitely be hearing about it for years and years to come. But time is of the essence for this next item, and if you aren't doing anything tonight may I offer this event to you for your consideration.

We were lucky enough to have Matthew Blackett of Spacing Magazine sit in on yesterday's episode of Winnipeg Internet Pundits, and the reason that he is in town is for the very first stop on the Spacing Road Show going across the country.

The event is tonight at the RAW Gallery, 290 McDermot Avenue in the Exchange; five dollars gets you admission and the most recent edition of the Jane-Jacobs-Award-winning Spacing Magazine. (I've seen it, it's very nice.) Doors open at 7:30 PM, and the show proper appears to kick off at 8:30 with an urbanism panel combining the Spacing Magazine team with the University of Manitoba's Richard Milgrom, the University of Winnipeg's Christopher Leo, and beloved local blogger -- coincidentally a Uptown Best Local Blog finalist and one of The Uniter 30 -- Robert Galston.

The panel is scheduled for an hour, after which the event will transmogrify into to a more casual social meetup. This means a sparkling opportunity to meet some of the city's brightest and most talented local urbanism enthusiasts, all gathered in one place for stimulating conversation -- and then I'll be there too! In case you like, I don't know, fart jokes.

Tomorrow's post will be a sequel to the post from last Friday, so -- see you here tomorrow, true believers!
