This Week In Gastown

 

GLOBAL RELAY Gastown Grand Prix 2018
WEDNESDAY, JULY 11
6PM – 9PM
Gastown

For one day, the charming cobblestone streets of Gastown become transformed into one of the fastest and most challenging cycling race courses in North America.  Free for spectators, this event is guaranteed to be a thrilling day out.

A Criterium, also called a “crit”, is a high speed action-packed bike race that is held on a closed course usually between 800 and 1,500 meters. Criteriums are mass-start races where riders travel around the course for a set number of laps or time: i.e., 50 laps or 90 minutes. During the race, riders will also race for prizes called primes. If a rider is involved in an accident, they can have one free lap to repair the damage in the mechanics pit before re-entering the race.

The event combines three different race categories: youth, women and men.

Canada’s Classic Bluesman, Harpdog Brown is home off the road again and this time he’s bringing a whole new show never before seen at Guilt & Company..

Harpdog Brown has grown a reputation as a real-deal purveyor of classic electric blues. These days, he’s been touring more and more as Harpdog Brown & the Uptown Blues Band – a vintage New Orleans Blues sound featuring slide trombone, keyboards, bass, drums, sax, and clarinet. Still a vintage vibe, just a different vintage and more in the realm of Louis Jordan, Satchmo, Sonny Boy Williamson, Wynonie Harris, and Duke Ellington.Dixieland Brunch
