Booooooom x The Juice Truck: Summer Ender Party

Tonight is our Summer Ender party with The Juice Truck! We are releasing a cold pressed juice together called “Brain On” that actually helps your brain function, and will be available at The Juice Truck all month. Come try it tonight, and put your brain to the test. There will be mind puzzles, music, beers, and lots of good prizes (including some of the last remaining Booooooom x Herschel bags I saved to be given away).

 

Booooooom x The Juice Truck Summer Ender Party

When: TONIGHT – 7pm till late

Where: The Juice Truck Cafe – 28 West 5th Ave

 

In honour of our brain juice I am re-posting this puzzle from Wired that I shared way back in 2009. It is still one of my favourite puzzles. If you don’t live in Vancouver and you can’t come to our party tonight maybe you can whip up your own brain juice at home and tackle this puzzle.

You are welcome to voice your frustration in the comments but if you know the answer please don’t ruin the fun for everyone else! Apparently this puzzle took me roughly an hour to solve in 2009. Good luck!

Creative Mornings / Vancouver Event

Creative Mornings / Vancouver event
Ahhh! (that was a girlish scream not the sound of me relaxing) I’m speaking today at Creative Mornings.

Apologies to everyone who was unable to get tickets, I was told they sold out extremely fast and unfortunately the venue is quite small. I will let you know how it goes! If you managed to get tickets please come up and say hi afterwards!

Wish me luck!

Creative Mornings / Vancouver Event

Creative Mornings / Vancouver event
Next Friday I will be speaking at Creative Mornings. This monthly lecture series, created by Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss), has quickly spread to 36 different cities including Vancouver.

The main reason I am doing this talk is because I am making a conscious effort to pursue everything that I am afraid of. I will be talking about aliens, and the 1996 blockbuster film “The Rock”. There is a possibility I will never speak publicly again.

Short interview on Creative Mornings/Van Tumblr: HERE.

Tix for my talk go on sale on Monday (they are free): HERE.
