moose’s down under and donating my hair to cancer

mooses

moose’s down under is more of a restaurant that serves alcohol than a pub. it has a great vibe that makes you feel right at home. i think the staff plays a huge factor in creating that vibe – they are all aussie, and just SO friendly. if you arrive in a group, they’ll take everyone’s names and ask if you want separate bills right off the bat, which eliminates any hassle in splitting the bill at the very end. they’re all very attentive and always make sure you have something to drink – it’s like being over at a friend’s house who is an amazing host!

the drinks are cheap, and they have great specials… like $6.50 double long-island iced teas on fridays. they serve delicious pub food that’s great to share if you want to munch on something while you drink.

this is where i met kelly for some drinks and food after i finished cutting over eight inches of my hair off, to donate to cancer.

it’s been on my bucket-list for a while, but as any girl with long hair knows, it’s surprisingly hard to part with that much of your hair. i finally just committed to a date to get it done, took one last look at my long, beautiful hair, along with a deep breath, and walked out of there five pounds lighter, with an amazingly cute haircut thanks to dawn (ps. if you are looking for an awesome stylist in vancouver, let me know and i can give you one of her cards, which will give you a bit of a discount for your first visit). axis can donate your hair directly to the children’s hospital for you, and they promise that every inch of hair is used up. it’s great to know that all that hair is going to be made into a wig for a little girl that just lost all her hair involuntarily to chemotherapy and radiation.
