You Should Probably Make an Appearance

The latest AdDrinx event has been announced for Vancouver! We’re holding it on the (G0d willing) sunny patio of the Art Gallery.

Some appetizers will be provided courtesy of AOL, and there will be a few door prizes. But mostly this is a great event to come hang out on a sunny patio with your friends, co-workers, and other industry folks. Super casual.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been planning my Halloween costume since November 1, 2012. I’ve narrowed it down to three ideas. The not-so-big reveal will happen at the first-ever Halloween event for the Vancouver media, marketing, and advertising community – PARANORMAL AD-TIVITY. This even is being put on by both NABs and AdDrinx, and is going to take place on October 31, 2013. That’s a Thursday, which is perfect, right?

There will be drinks (duh), dancing, and prizes for best costume. Tickets and venue info will be coming soon, but in the meantime, join the Facebook event by clicking on the poster below and SAVE THE DATE!

It’s going to be big.
It’s going to be unforgettable.
And you can bet things are going to get wicked.

Paranormal Ad-tivity

You Should Probably Make an Appearance

402110InvWith the taste of white wine still lingering my mouth from last night’s NABS BBQ at Cossette, I’m here to tell you about the next industry commiseration libations. AdDrix is having their Summer Luau! Hooray! And they totally scored the sweetest location in all of Vancouver: the Art Gallery Cafe!



5:00 – 8:00PM



What is AdDrinx?

Because we often find ourselves too busy to see each other, AdDrinx is a fine excuse for advertising people to get together, raise a glass, catch up on advertising gossip, and – very importantly – donate a few dollars to a worthy cause while doing so.

At each AdDrinx social, 100% of the proceeds we raise gets passed on to those in need in our local community. Over the last two years, our supporters and regulars have helped us raise thousands of dollars in toys and cash donations for our community. If you are able, we invite you, too, to bring our industry together and make a difference.

It’s drinking on a patio for a good cause, you guys. RSVP on their Facebook event page and see you there!

Vancouver Advertising Event: AdDrinx

Tomorrow is Dos de Mayo (yes, Dos), a Mexican fiesta put on by AdDrinx.

For those of you who don’t know them, AdDrinx is Vancouver’s quarterly Advertising and Media industry social. It was created so that busy ad folks, like yourself, can get together, raise a glass and catch up on the latest industry goss. Plus, at each event they select a different charity and 100% of the proceeds they raise goes right to those in need within our community. So drinking equals caring.

This time, they’re helping out Dress for Success by collecting gently used handbags and computer bags for low-and no-income women and their transition into the workforce. So ladies, clean out your closets tonight and bring your interview-appropriate purses or laptop bags that you no longer use. By donating, you’ll be eligible to win gift certificates, wine sets and more!

Event starts at 5pm and goes until 8pm at The Bottleneck, 870 Granville Street.

RSVP on Facebook.

Mmmm! Tastes like giving to the needy!

AdDrinx Vancouver Festivus Party

It’s that time of year. The holidays are fast approaching and calendars are filling up with fundraisers, dinners, cocktail hours and Christmas parties of all sorts. Be sure to remember the less fortunate this season and do what you can to help.

In the advertising industry? Check out the AdDrinx Fextivus Party, happening next Wednesday at Cinema Public House.


Join us next week for our AdDrinx Vancouver Festivus Party!

Where: Cinema Public House (901 Granville @ Smithe)

When: Wed, Dec 7, 2011 (starting @ 5 PM; prize draws @ 6:45 PM)

Admission is FREE, but if you can spare a few dollars or better yet, come with a toy donation, that would mean the world because we will be helping the Starlight Children’s Foundation provide Christmas gifts for children and young teens in the Lower Mainland who suffer from chronic illnesses or life-threatening injuries. 100% of the evening’s donations will be given to the Foundation.

Everyone who comes out will receive a Flying Wedge Pizza card loaded with free lunch and anyone who donates cash or toys will be entered to win from a selection of great prizes including restaurant GCs, beauty/wine gift baskets and much more (prize draw @ 6:45 pm)! So come out, see some old friends, raise a glass, and support a great cause at the time of the year it is needed most!

We really hope to see you! RSVP on Facebook now!

Upcoming Industry Events

Tonight is the Lotus Awards  in Vancouver. The Lotus Awards, according to their Facebook page, is “a competitive advertising awards show that celebrates creative excellence in British Columbia”.

I’ve skipped the Lotus for the past few years, but have decided to give it another chance this year. Right after I bought my tickets, an event called Occupy Lotus was announced. The Occupy event, not part of the Lotus Awards, will be held on the same night, at the same time as the Awards, but will be at the Commodore Lanes downstairs. It is described as “an inclusive event for the creative community. We’ll party. And bowl. And have a drink with like-minded designer-types. And there’s no entry fee.”

I’m all for giving people choice. I think it’s great that there is an option for folks who might prefer more casual, less-structured socialization. Or for folks who don’t agree with the “awards show machine”.

But at first I was a little disappointed in the timing of the event. I though it disrespectful and conflicting and didn’t understand why both events couldn’t live harmoniously. But then I realized if Occupy Lotus was at a different day and time – on top of the name no longer making sense – they wouldn’t have grabbed as much attention as they did. Kudos, boys. After checking out some of the attendees, I’m sure the event will be a blast.

ABCOM’s Christmas Lunch is one of Vancouver’s most anticipated parties. Probably because the bar opens at 11am. Last year, I only made it to 11pm. But the party went on into the wee hours of the morning.

Join the AdDrinx Facebook page and keep your peepers peeped for their Christmas event. Last year, they were collecting new toys and cash donations which went to needy kids (sorry, I forget the exact charity). But they do a lot of good while having a lot of fun.

So far there are no events listed for NABs, but add them of Facbeook and stay tuned for the Cannes Reel Screening sometime in January.

Anything else that I’ve missed?

Terry thought he had a fool proof way to get from one Christmas party to the other. The account executives disagreed.

First AdDrix of 2011

Date/Time: Thursday, March 10 from 5-8 p.m.

Venue: Cinema Public House (901 Granville St)

Cause: Cystic Fibrosis Canada (Vancouver chapter)

Spring is still a few weeks away, but this doesn’t mean we should stay in hibernation until then. Come break free from winter with us – we promise great company AND a complimentary hi-ball for everyone (compliments of Cinema Public House)!

On Thu, Mar 10, the AdDrinx evening will be in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada (Vancouver chapter). 100% of the money we raise will be donated to the organization, which will be used to fund cystic fibrosis research.

Admission, as always, is free, but if you can, we hope that you will donate to the cause. In exchange, you will get one or more prize-draw tickets for a chance to win from a selection of amazing prizes! We will also be having a business card draw. So let’s come together to bring good weather.

RSVP on Facebook to let us know you’re coming!


Did someone say free drink?
