In celebration of our recent incorporation as The Memewar Arts & Publishing Society, Memewar Magazine invites you to join us for a night of comedy! Clearly, the mass of legal paperwork involved with becoming a non-profit society was anything but funny, so we needed to host a fundraising event which would let us laugh away our bureaucratic nightmares.

Day: Friday, August 21
Time: 9:00 – 11:30 PM
Place: Café Deux Soleils (2096 Commercial Drive)
Cover: $8

Featuring: comedy performances by Antoinette Keane, James Masters, Christopher James, and Andrew von Rosenbach, improv from Dangerous Portion, and special video presentations by Man Hussy.

Sunday, August 9, 2009, the day of the great Bubble Bash! A day when all bubble-loving people will gather and rejoice amidst the massive amounts of bubbles converging in soapy ecstasy! A day when all bubble-fearing folks will tremble in their pants for fear of the swarms of bubbles which shall be flying and floating around downtown Vancouver! A day which, regardless of your personal relationship with bubbles, shall live in bubble-blowing infamy!

At 1pm on this lazy summer Sunday afternoon, hordes of people will gather armed with bubble guns, bubble wands, bubble machines, and bubble soap, and the bubbles will be awe inspiring! Come ready to make bubble art or get into a bubble battle with friends and strangers, and maybe turn some strangers into friends. The awesome sight of millions of small and large bubbles emanating from Commercial Drive will be secondary compared to how magical it will feel to be right in the middle of all of those bubbles!

Brief Deets
What: A massive assortment of soapy bubbles, blowing freestyle
When: 1pm, Sunday, August 9, 2009
Where: Charles St. & Commercial Dr.
