Our Favourite Post from #DEB Vancouver

If you live in Vancouver we are pretty sure that you are aware that Diner En Blanc took place last night. Your facebook feed has probably been hijacked by images of your friends or people that you know dressed in all white for this exclusive event. Through all of the "white" noise, one of the attendants posts stood out from all the rest, and that is why we would like to honour this "no fucks given" partier who trolled the event and had us laughing so hard it hurt.

Thank you Victoria Potter!
