5 Reasons to Get Out of the House this Week (March 18-24)
March 18, 2019
Get up and at ‘em – there’s something for everyone (except kangaroos).
Dig in Down Under
The Royal Dinette & Four Winds Collaboration dinner is serving up some of Australia’s finest eats with select Four Winds creations. The menu includes potato gnocchi and seared kangaroo loin (hey, it’s apparently a more eco-friendly alternative to beef or pork) and Four Winds’ La Maison and Cherry Operis bottle-conditioned beers. You’ll want to bring your (non-vegan) friends.
Get a taste of new works by Women of Colour, Multiracial, Indigenous and Metis artists at Boca Del Lupo’s Envision. This show is made up of a series of micro excerpts from new contemporary productions, and tickets are super accessible – Monday is a pay-what-you-can night for all audience members, and the other shows are $3.70 for female and non-binary BIPOC performing artists. The pricing is part of the company’s 3.7% initiative, named for the small percentage of key creative roles held by diverse women in Canadian theatre.
Listen and Learn
Bring your listening ears to Surviving Vancouver: Gathering in Our City, a Museum of Vancouver panel focusing on Indigenous food systems. Panelists include herbalist Lori Snyder, lawyer Woodrow Morrison, and interdisciplinary artist T’uy’t’tanat- Ceace Wyss. Be a responsible foodie and learn how Indigenous practises can help limit climate change.
Boom Boom Pow
Hey ya! Throw it back to the 2000s at the Fox Cabaret’s Work it: Best of the 2000s Night. Wear your apple bottom jeans, bring your single ladies, lose yourself in the music and above all, make sure your hips don’t lie. We’ve gotta feeling it’s going to be a good night.
Dinner and a Show
Check out Toque Flamenco, Vancouver’s most popular Flamenco band, while you chow down on chana masala and spinach paneer this Friday. East is East’s Broadway location will be hosting the high-energy local group, who’s fiery Rumbas have had fans dancing since 2014. It’s time to treat your taste buds (and sound buds?).
