A coffee meetup for creatives, a long table dinner inspired by Quebec's Cabane à Sucre and a soul and R&B dance party.
Here’s your weekly roundup of the top events in the city, including art exhibitions, local theatre, restaurant openings, concerts, film, markets and other to-dos we think you’ll love. If you have a Vancouver event you’d like to submit for consideration, send an email to email@example.com.
Come take in some groundbreaking cinema at everyone’s favourite art house theatre. After debuting back in 1991, Julia Dash’s landmark indie film has since become iconic in cinema history for its cultural impact and innovative storytelling becoming the first full-length picture by an African American woman to receive theatrical distribution in the States (appallingly long overdue). It’s also cited as a major influence for Beyoncé’s “Lemonade.” Need I say more?

Come indulge in the sweet taste of French Canadian heritage (no, not poutine!) for a dining experience that’s inspired by the traditional “Sugar Shacks” of Quebec. This long table dinner serves up a seven-course family-style menu with Québécois favourites and perfectly paired bevvies to wash it down. As long as the Bonhomme Carnaval doesn’t show up—that guy scares me to my core.
