The Odyssey Is Finally Closing

In: Nic, Totally GAY!

Well, after what has seemed like years of the historic Odyssey Nightclub in downtown Vancouver closing, it’s finally happening. The Odyssey has gotten word of it’s closure and the last night it will be open will be September 5th.

The club has fought long and hard after BC Housing declared that the site would be used for social and supportive housing in May of 2008. A site was originally set for the club to relocate to Denman St. in the westend of Vancouver, but locals and the city made sure that it never happened after complaints, protests, and petitions. Yet after a letter writing campaign to the mayor and city, headed by General Manager Will McGuire, and backed by all of us at Homorazzi and the GLBT public and supporters, BC Housing had to admit that they were not ready to make the move and start the project, thus the club was bought more time.

In this week’s fitness tip, Mike talks to you about a great lower body (legs) & shoulders workout you can try out at the gym today. The workout includes a four part complex designed to push you to your limit, providing little rest between each of the sets.

As with any workout, it’s important to remain focused on the task at hand – really engage your muscles and don’t focus on rushing through the exercises. It’s better to go slower and do the exercise properly, as this also works your muscles harder and leads to better results…and that’s what you want, isn’t it?

T-Dance @ Nu Restaurant, Sunday July 18th

In: Charge It, Patrick

Attention gay Vancouverites. Summer finally’s arrived in Vancouver. What better way to celebrate the sunshine than to drink some refreshing cocktails and cold beer with a few friends. On Sunday July 18th, Homorazzi in collaboration with Martini Presents and NU Restaurant are holding a T-Dance that will end all T-Dances.

It’s a coming home of sorts for Vancouver T-Dances. NU Restaurant (formerly Rileys Cafe) is the birthplace of the legendary Riley Cafe T-Dances in Vancouver. Located underneath the Granville Street Bridge on the downtown side, it’s a perfect way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon listening to tunes by DJ Jason Van overlooking False Creek while munching away on complimentary tapas. Advanced (*cough* cheaper *cough*) tickets can be purchased at masc skincare, 433 Davie Street (at Homer).

On the fence on whether it’ll be a great time, check out videos from a couple of our previous events. Also, who can forget that awesome party held at the Vancouver Art Gallery during the Winter Olympics. Martini Presents and Homorazzi.com always show you a good time.

Lights, Camera, Action! Vancouver (and Canada in general) used to get a lot of big Hollywood productions due to the financial incentive of filming up here. Then, all that went away when it became…not so attractive. Now, it appears that things are gearing up once again with numerous productions currently filming as we speak…as in literally today. Here is a list of 6 big productions, either movie or television that can be found “out & about” in Vancouver alone, right now.

The Big Year

This star studded movie is currently filming in Vancouver and based on the ensemble and premise, it sounds like it’ll be quite a successful comedy – something along the lines of “Best in Show”. The movie is about three avid bird watchers that are competing to spot the rarest birds in North America at a very prestigious annual event. Love it! Main characters include: Anjelica Huston (Witches), Jim Parsons (Big Bang Theory), Jack Black (Tropic Thunder), Rashida Jones (Parks & Recreation), Owen Wilson (You, Me, and Dupree, Starsky & Hutch), Steve Martin (Pink Panther, Big Mama)

In this week’s fitness tip, the importance of warming up is addressed. With warmer weather comes more outdoor physical activity (jogging, hiking, soccer, beach volleyball, etc.). If you’re not warming up your body and your joints, you are increasing the chances that you may get injured and I don’t have to tell you that you don’t want that.

Just a handful of 30 second warmup exercises can make a big difference. Not only is it going to prevent injuries, but it is also going to make your workout more effective and allow your muscles to be at their best.

Check some of Mike Dirks suggestions…I do these ones all the time!

Vancouver Gays Do the Math
Local health organization wants you to calculate your risk

The Health Initiative for Men (HIM) has just launched their latest health communication campaign, Do the Math: Calculate your Risk. As the summer heats up and the clothes come off, HIM wants gay men to think about the kinds of sex they’re having, who they’re having it with and any risks involved.

Postcards, posters, condom packs and banner ads on gay cruising sites will be used to promote the new campaign which depicts gay guys from Vancouver in various situations where risk might exist.

“This campaign prompts gay guys to use their head, to do the math and calculate their own risk before making decisions about condom use.” says Jody Jollimore, HIM Project Coordinator.
