    heh, my friends go to UBC and always go to that beach.

    I'm heading out there next year Rain, guess you'll have to give me advance notice of when to steer clear of it.

    Regardless, a number of excellent reasons for relocating to Vancouver have been listed here. My better judgment, alas, compels me not to elaborate. [​IMG]

    Back in the day when Ralphie was in his first term he stayed in the hotel i was working at. I was working room service that night and had the distinct pleasure of getting him nice and loaded.

    It's not just that it's a nude beach, I mean we have those in NJ and stuff, it's the fact that it's on a university? What would a University have to do with a nude beach, is it a public beach that's owned by some university?? Is there a Nude Beach 101 for students to take??
    Just seems strange to me

    Mark, that hotel wouldn't be the Louie would it? Correction, I just re-read your post. I don't think the Louie had room service. Perhaps it was his watering hole.

    The Louie?? I use to drink there on Wednesday evenings. On Sundays we went to a small cafe shop / bar / whatever on the main floor and had grilled steaks and watched whatever CFL game was playing.

    The place has even been visited by the BareNakedLadies!!

    Damn, thats bringing up some memories!!

    And now, just last night because of the homeless shelter incident, my premier admits he has a drinking problem. Good thing in spring he just called and won the election. Welcome to Ralph's World indeed! [​IMG]

    Wreck Beach is pretty over rated. If you want to hang out with a bunch of 60 year old naked men, then it is your kind of place. [​IMG]
    The beach is on the University campus. It is controlled by the GVRD (Greater Vancouver Regional District) under the parks board. The University administration has at many times tried to close the beach down.
