First ever @realwheeldeal x @vanloc.ca Cars & Cà Phê Sữa

HUGE thanks to the team @vanloc.ca for co-hosting the event with me. This idea has lived in my head for a few years and after linking up with the new guys behind Van Loc & CRW Coffee I knew we had the perfect setting.

For the first one, I set it for invite only. I wanted everyone to feel like they were part of something special, because that's what they were. I wanted to buy a cup of coffee for so many people that I look up to, admire, always had my back and been there since Day 1. A recent sentiment in our car community is "it used to be better" - I didn't want those words to be a broken record. I wanted it better today.

A lot of recent car events in Edmonton have had poor outcomes and bad results so I'm hoping this starts a trend of events more focused on friendships and a close group of enthusiasts. Another issue is the state of Chinatown in YEG. A large partition of my childhood hard drive take place in Chinatown but no new memories were being written. Plugging @changechinatown I'm hoping more of us can push for more events and return back to this area of the city.

Biggest thanks to my wife who told me to stop juggling the idea in my head and encouraged me to put the event on. I'm so glad you all got to meet my daughter. ✌️
