New Ottawa Apple Store

July 18, 2009

The Rideau Apple Store opening today was such an adrenaline rush! I felt shivery when I left the mall- the same feeling I get when meeting my favourite bands! I did not anticipate seeing such massive crowds of people. It was a real event to remember.

There was a countdown and seemingly endless cheering! The line spilled out the exterior door of the mall, and went down an entire block of Nicholas St.! Luckily it moved fast, and I was giving and receiving high fives and a sweet free t-shirt, and being ushered into the new Apple Store before I knew it. I was happy to be one of the first 1000!

Here is a short video that I took at the beginning:

I took a bunch of photos- they can be seen here until they are all done uploading, when I will organize them.

I heard this band play for the first time at Warped Tour in Montreal last weekend (July 11th). It’s a great combination of electronica and punk!

I downloaded the following song from their record label’s summer sampler online… give it a listen here 🙂

I’m going to the Ottawa Apple Store opening this morning! I’ll post up some photos later 🙂

I walked around downtown Ottawa today at lunch, and took a few photos of things that piqued my fancy 🙂

The Rideau Centre passage to the Bay

There is a really nice view of the buildings downtown from the passge.

A view of the Chateau Laurier from the entrance of the Rideau Centre

It is a beautiful building, and the gardens behind it are even more gorgeous…

Elephant & Castle

A nice pub downtown that serves delicious club sandwiches 🙂 I came here for a couple of birthdays… I just heard that it will be closing soon, so this photo is to preserve its memory for me.

New Apple store in the Rideau Centre!

I am SO excited! I have never been inside an Apple Store, and I ❤ macs.
