I called my girl Keighty to see when we should meet at the club. “There’s a wait list,” she said, “but I’ll see you at 9:30.” I grabbed a cab and made my way through downtown Vancouver B.C. and over the bridge to Chinatown. Beyonce’s “Lemonade” was cued up in my headphones in true pregame fashion, and when I arrived at 261 Union Street, I was ready to go. It was 9:30 a.m. on a Tuesday morning and I was about to give this club everything I had.… Read More
