The New Grand Hotel is celebrating its 10th year anniversary this weekend. The building that houses the boutique hotel, the Uptown Sportsbar and Louie’s Steak House is actually almost 100 years old, but the festivities this Friday and Saturday will be marking the huge renovation which took place a decade ago. Uptown bartender Joe Cheech (left) and Lily Smith (right) each showed a handful of fingers to mark the special occasion. On Friday night there will be a toonie buffet, live entertainment with Dallas Wolbaum and door prizes.¬†On Saturday night Ultimate Fighting continues with UFC-130 starting at 6 p.m. The Canucks might also be getting underway on Saturday night and if that’s the case Cheech says to come early because the place is going to be packed.
