Party at the Vancouver Seed Bank – Choogle on #59

While prepping for an oil painting, Uncle Weed sparks a joint and talks about travel plans (Austin, Texas for SxSW and Mexico for chillaxin’), catches up with the Vancouver 3 extradition situation (and the grandstanding DEA and DoJ despots), then revisits a party at Vancouver Seed Bank (and Toker’s Lounge) with proprietor (and former editor of Cannabis Culture) Dana Larsen who tells about his political work (NDP Candidate for Sunshine Coast), and his new Hairy Pothead graphic novel.

Also, Uncle Weed pitches a speaking gig at Vancouver’s personal expression conference (and good time) Northern Voice, plus other podcasts series and upcoming shows, and finally an update on the Clayoquot art contest, and oh yeah, rumours about another Herby show.

Travel advice to Olympia:
As for Olympia … 4th Ave is laden with interesting shops and establishments i used to frequent. Some faves are Last Word Books (ask to see the Uncle Weed collection with my old collection of weedy books – not too shabby unless the guy doesn’t know where it is in the back), the Eastside Club Tavern – a divey bar where i met my sweetie, first hooked up wi-fi and made their website also took High Times there when they visited (look for the Matt Groening original sketch on the wall) – if you love microbews and don’t mind a bunch of goofballs and dirtbags, this is the place. Like the Mos Eisley cantina of Oly.

Next door is the Clubside Cafe where i got my podcasting start on Clubsidebreakfasttime.com, had the pre-Vancouver going away party and many a tasty meal. They are omnivoires and can make most of their specialties a veggie way. Tell Kenny and Kathryn i sent ya and you may see my buddy Cosmo there or at Olympia Coffee Roasting’s Cherry street cafe (try the Big Truck).

Next to that is Le Voyeur – more of a scenesters eatery/drinkery/music venue, farther along is the 4th ave tav and even further the Brotherhood tavern – both decent. Also New Moon Cafe, Santosh Indian food and Quality Burrito serve decent grub (IIRC).

If you are feeling fancy, then Water St. Cafe or Gardner’s are the choices for the rich hippies. Geez, i just about forgot Billy and Lisa’s incredible new restaurant Cicada. Go there or any meal and be pleased – really.

Oh yeah, if you have a car, drive out to Evergreen (a bit of a roll), follow the signs to “F Lot”, follow the edge of the lot to the back until you see a sign to the beach (there will prob be a few cars parked there), hike down, enjoy the stroll, soak in the legends and toke a doob on the beach. Many other noteworthy folks have.
