Dinner at NEW Save On Meats restaurant with Karen Fung and Raul Pacheco in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

July 3, 2011 4 comments

From Save On Meats:

SAVE ON MEATS / A Vancouver Institution for 54 Years

Al DesLauriers opened Save On Meats at 43 West Hastings in 1957 amid the shine of dozens of neon signs up and down what was then considered Vancouver’s main shopping and entertainment district. The famous ‘flying pigs’ were a beacon for customers and a major attraction along Hastings Street.

But while the city grew and other businesses closed down or moved away Save On Meats remained in its original location serving its loyal clientele for the next 54 years.

In 2009 Al retired and the butcher shop was shut, leaving Vancouverites to mourn the loss of Vancouver legend, not to mention one of the best burgers in town.

ABSTRACT

Rules, Norms and Web 2.0: Etiquette in an Era of Evolutionary Social [Dis]Organization

Etiquette is frequently seen as a constraining set of behavioral rules, delineating what behaviors are appropriate within a certain social arena and which are not. But in a context of online multiverses, each with its own culture and demographic, what is truly the “right” thing, and how can we know it? Culture clashes and rapid evolution of social norms are ubiquitous in social media: why? What is appropriate etiquette? Is it portable across platforms? What are the ‘right’ kind of rules and norms in an unruly arena such as the online social media world? The participants in this panel will engage in a conversation about what constitutes etiquette, whether or not it relates to a moral imperative, whether it emerges as self-appointed leaders create specific sets of norms and discuss the evolution of etiquette in emergent social media. The implications for codes of behavior and etiquette in Web 2.0 are also discussed.

Many thanks to Chef Gerry Kleinhout’s own personal warm hospitality and attentive staff at the St Regis Bar and Grill helped to make a stress free and successful Vancouve Bloggers MeetUp.  

Below is a photo of Chef Gerry Kleinhout graciously giving  April Smith cheesecake after filming an informative evening of social media etiquette. The lucky folks who were able to sample the cheesecake remarked that it was very delicious!
