For over two years we have been partnering with Chivas on a number of social entrepreneurship projects, including the Global Citizen Exchange. We spent July 6-11th in Vancouver working on a new campaign with Chivas that we are excited to share in October 2016.
In the time when we were not working with the Chivas team, we enjoyed exploring Vancouver with our wives. Thanks to some amazing feedback on the Apolis Instagram, we received quite a few quality local tips. We loved the Gastown district and thanks to our longtime friend & tour guide - Darian Hocking, editor of Freemanbrand, we got to see everything! We started by visiting our friends at Old Faithful, who were one of our first retail partners for the Market Bag City Series. We also spent a little time with the team behind Nifty-Do, another Apolis retail partner in Gastown. We enjoyed a few unreal espresso shops: Revolver, Nelson the Seagull and the birds & the beets. We also were pleased to get dinner at Kissa Tanto & Bao Bei.
We love Vancouver so much that we could not resist the urge to make our own Vancouver City Series Market Bag. We had a great time north of the border and are already looking forward to our next visit. Until then, enjoy the following photostory to summarize and unforgettable week in a great city.
