Finding Bob Geldof: The Georgia Straight Ride
Thursday, June 10, 5:00pm - 6:00pm
Notes: Meet on Pine street just North of Broadway
By: Jamie OllivierBob Geldof worked as a music journalist for the Georgia Straight in the 1970s before he returned to England and joined the Boomtown Rats. This is the premise of this ride, we are trying to reclaim our roots and find Bob Geldof. Okay, so maybe people who LOOK like Bob Geldof will do. The Ride starts on Pine street just next to the new Georgia Straight headquarters. After a brief history of the Paper, we will ride down Pine street to the seawall where we will cruise around false creek, ending up in Gastown for Irish beer. Just before we start drinking, we vote on who looks most like Bob.
