Canada Day in Ottawa


TRIBE Member
Got our pre-drink on at our block party; we live downtown, so The Hill is about a 10 minute walk. Fuelled by burgers & much wine, took to the streets. Glad we were on foot, since all Northbound streets were blocked a few blocks from Wellington.
The Hill was jammed with family hour meets drunken revelry. Only the very most glassy eyed of the over-refreshed made their acquaintance with our local boys in blue (dayglo yellow safety vests in groups of 3 made it ez to spot them).
In the Byward Market, all parking lot spaces were fenced w/ that shit that obscures sightlines. Could kinda make out the mainstage where Deadmau5 etc were doing their thing, except I couldn't actually make out whether there was anybody onstage from teh highly secured entrance.
Having reconnoitered the proceedings, we returned home to continue partying. On our walk home, I joked that it felt like Pride in Toronto, except waaaaay less fabulous.
