Local executive chef and pro forager David Furlonger leads you through the most elegant of outdoor cooking experiences in Food Tastes Better Outside, a new video series by Ecologyst. This week’s episode features the making of ceviche cooked right on the beach—you can’t get much fresher. While you’re waiting for today’s episode, you can binge the first two (mountaintop braised vegetables and beach ramen).

You can check out PNE food in drive-thru form this week (probably the most efficient way to try every deep-fried, flash-frozen and chocolate-dipped delicacy the fair has to offer). It’s not the most wallet-friendly activity ($25 a carload, and food is extra) but entry also gets you two passes to next year’s fair, so you can mark your calendars in advance. Sounds like all of the fair food goodness without the motion sickness—well, depending on how smooth a driver you are.
When: Tuesday, August 25 to Saturday, August 29 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.Where: PNE/PlaylandCost: $25 per carloadMore Info: pne.ca
Luckily, six feet apart is the ideal (if not minimum—take care of your eardrums) distance at which live music can be enjoyed. The Firehall Arts Centre’s courtyard concert series has max 40 audience members and new performers every week, and it’s one of the only spots in the city you can get a concert-esque experience right now. Up this Thursday is Elle Wolf, whose galactic synth pop tunes are like “sitting on Mars sipping an old fashioned while reminiscing on past lovers and and the interstellar connections that could be flying your way at any moment”— whatever that means. Count our curiosity as piqued.
When: Weekends at 7:00 p.m. through September 27Where: Firehall Arts CentreCost: $20More Info: firehallartscentre.ca
See a live reading of Zahida Rahemtulla’s newest play, The Wrong Bashir, on Zoom this Friday. The comedy stars an Ismaili family whose son, Bashir, is selected to be a religious leader—but he hasn’t quite been keeping up with his religious studies. Hijinks and hilarity follows, of course.

Russna Kaur is one of three artists opening new exhibitions at the Burrard Arts Foundation this week (don’t miss Cara Guri and Olivia di Liberto’s exhibits, too). The work featured above is from a 2019 display called ‘Ironing, bored’—and that’s the sort of confrontation and cleverness you can expect from her newest endeavours, all of which are rooted in modernist abstraction and South Asian material culture.
