I went to my first concert at the Starlite room at 17. I had never really been in downtown Edmonton before that. No real reason to go. It was dark out and the snow was falling. Seeing people crowd around this alleyway made me feel so cool. The mixing of cigarette smoke and the breathe of conversation in the air. It made me feel like I invited to this secret party as we waited in line.
Tall brick buildings squishing it's patrons two by two as you hear the opener through the walls. This started my love for Edmonton. I've become a large participant in public events and buying through local businesses. I advocate for this city whenever I can.
