If you really need an excuse to order takeout, we’ll give you three: 1) April 15 has been officially dubbed Takeout Day in Canada, 2) local restaurants could really use your support right about now, and 3) you deserve it for being a responsible, upstanding human who is staying at home, washing your hands, and teaching your grandma how to use FaceTime.

Homeroom 604 usually provides in-person meet-ups and evening workshops, where participants can craft things like macramé, kombucha and block prints. They’ve pivoted to online hangouts now, and the first one is this Thursday.

Get inspired at the Sunday’s Furniture virtual pop-up this week. COVID-19 has delayed the furniture company’s opening (check out their new Yaletown retail space whenever Dr. Bonnie says that’s allowed), but you can still tour the store online. They’re also hosting Instagram live walk-throughs, product features, and giveaways. Until the pop-up, erm, pops down on April 17, customers get 10% off all purchases—and $50 from every purchase goes to the Vancouver Food Bank.
