After the huge post-hockey party on Sunday night, Mr E Man and a friend who lives nearby shared a taxi home from downtown. Mr E Man told me the next morning that the 15 minute ride had been really fun - the driver was flying Canadian car flags and playing bhangra music, and was happy to crank it up to 11 when asked by his passengers, who were equally happy to keep the party going as they headed home, dancing in the back seat with all the windows open, shouting "YEAH!!!!" at pedestrians.
We heard last night that after Mr E Man got dropped off, the party continued even further...
Our friend was having such an awesome time that he asked the driver to take him back downtown for a drive around Stanley Park.
Halfway around the park, the driver was having such an awesome time that he switched off the meter.
An hour later, when our friend finally made it home, the driver gave him the CD of bhangra music as a parting gift.
For me, that story sums up the atmosphere in the city over the last couple of weeks.
