I like simple tweetups in joints I go to anyway. I jumped at the chance to return to Bella Gelateria for some of the best gelato in the city and hang out with the cool people there.
Mmm... I love my gelato. I stuck with my usual offering of espresso and dark chocolate 85%. There were a few special flavours for the night including ginger and cinnamon, Gewürztraminer, lavender and honey, and chocolate and mint Schnapps with two flavours for the price of one.
I love hanging out and drifting in and out of conversations while sneakily snapping some shots including organizer Amy (top). May (bottom left) is a little more open to them versus fellow V.I.A.er and photographer Maurice Li (bottom right) who likes to be the one doingthe shooting.
The place was buzzing with the usual suspect busy tweeting like my friends above, Colene (bottom left) and Dennis Pang (top and bottom right). It got crowded pretty fast and a little cramped. I was very happy when they moved the chairs a tables out of the after a few newbies left. I wish more places cleared things out to accommodate more people being able to stand around and mingle.
Amy got a nice haul of canned goods for the Vancouver Food Bank.
A big shout out to maestro gelatiere James Coleridge (top right) and Amy for putting on a pretty wicked meet up. The place was jam packed and the gelato was flowing along with the good conversation.
