Invading The Austria Club

The Austria Vancouver club held their annual summer shindig today. I always look forward to this event because it’s a good way to step outside the norm and get some culture. Richmond is mostly Asian so it’s really a step outside when you enter a place where everyone is white and you are the only Chinese guy there.

I remember the first time I went to the Austria club. I wasn’t sure what to expect so I brought along a camcorder to tape the events in case I didn’t make it out. Anyways, this is the video of the first time I visited the Austria club. All I have to say is there are sure strange things going on inside the Austria club!

  6. Strange Indeed, a prospera bear along with some mighty fine dancing

    1. The men had to do all the hard steps though. The women were just waving those wreathes above their heads.

    2. Goob says:

      Yeah, the women looked kinda goofy just twirling around like that. πŸ˜†

  7. Don Wilson says:

    Wow, this was a great video. I loved the Schindler’s list part.

    1. Lewis Empire says:

      I hope there are no Austrian club members on here today!

      1. Goob says:

        Haha, me too!

  8. No new video from today’s get-together, John? Really curious if there were any mascots at this one, too. πŸ˜†

  9. Maybe I felt similar when I went to Singapore first time. Asian culture is shock if if it is fist time. And I like Asian culture and food.

    I actually do have some austrian heritage, and I had no idea there was an austrian club. Was the beer free?

    Maybe this austrian thing will finally pay off…

    People are…different! You can always learn something from this site. πŸ™‚

    This is weird… and I am from Austria. I assure you that not every club in Austria goes down like that :mrgreen:

    What the hell is this? I live in Richmond. It’s about 1/2 and 1/2 and I’m not Asian and I don’t even think about it. Does that mean when I go into a Chinese restaurant and I’m the only Caucasian there that I should feel uncomfortable? Well I don’t and neither should you. You’re not in China now-there is no racism here like there is there. Or maybe there is and I’m just too naive to think otherwise.
