GroundZero is no more

Vancouver Afterhours Club, GroundZero had to shut its doors for good.

vancouver afterhours clubVancouver’s newest afterhours club,┬áSadly, we┬áhad to shut it doors for good on Friday. After much though, we decided to shut the afterhours down as none of the 3 partners had time to invest in this business venture 2 days every single weekend.

My partners have a similar work ethic as I do and if you look at my commitments… I am currently :

  • head programmer currently working on the DateSuite online dating application and database.
  • head project ,manager working on a mobile marketing campaign with 2 new co workers
  • full time CEO of imVancouver – Vancouver’s TOP Internet Marketing Firm since 1998
  • part time DJ instructor currently with 3 DJ students
  • owner/programmer/developer/tester/marketer for well over 200 seperate sites ranging from online dating, to wedding dj search engines, to a blog listings of the top djs in the world.
  • freelance DJ for weddings, corporate events, high school dances, proms and grads.

And on TOP of all those, I was spending 2 full days a week running GroundZero where people barely showed up. We thought Vancouver was well over due for another Afterhours being added to the list. I thought this, since I personally love to dance…but now when i go to places like the basement or Gorgo mish… I am angry! They play the lamest, boringest, unimaginative music found anywhere and there is no alternative.

HOWEVER…. I personally, solo, spoke to the GroundZero venue owner and am in the process of making a deal to throw 1 big event a month, where everything is done more like artists… the events will have themes and guests must dress up. I believe the first on will be June 9th to go hand and hand with the Vancouver Full Moon Beach Party, but i am not 100% certain yet.
