fuckyeahvintage-retro: Las Vegas, 1968
On September 7th of last year The Society for the Preservation of Historic Revelry embarked on one of its most ambitious expeditions: The Arthur Erickson Dinner Series. With a mandate to gather, party, and collect content at every Arthur Erickson site in the province of British Columbia, small teams have been assembling themselves outside Erickson sites as part of the Revelry Society’s 5th Official Expedition.
It is with great excitement that this journey continues, over a year since it started at the law courts in Vancouver’s downtown core, with a 4th dining event at the Museum of Anthropology on the UBC campus in West Vancouver.
