Local luxury consignment store Mine & Yours is bringing you the next best thing with virtual shopping appointments. Fill out a questionnaire, select a time, and a staff member will meet with you virtually to pick out the most stylish of #stayhome ‘fits.

Zoom into the Art Gallery twice a week with Art Connects, a new program that streams live and interactive artsy events straight into your home. This Tuesday, April 7 at 1:30 p.m. is a curator’s talk with curatorial coordinator Ashlee Conery and senior curatorial fellow Tarah Hogue. They’ll chat about curatorial decisions and interpretive lenses used in lineages and land bases, the gallery’s permanent collection. It’s probably good to muse over some serious culture in between episodes of Tiger King.

April is B.C.’s official Wine Month (and B.C.’s unofficial Will I Ever See My Friends Again Month), and our province’s wineries are doing all they can to keep spirits high. Over 175 wineries, retailers and restaurants are offering free shipping, delivery, charitable donations, and curbside pick-up during this tough time. Some are even offering virtual wine tastings: Harper’s Trail Estate Winery is hosting live Instagram tastings April 7, 13 and 19 @HarpersTrail.

Full disclosure: I once had a play produced in this festival, so I was particularly sad when it was inevitably cancelled this year due to the virus that shall not be named. But as they say, the show must go on—the Brave New Play Rites Festival is now a virtual staged reading extravaganza. Tune in to Youtube live every Saturday for a pair of plays written by talented students who one day might make it big in the world of local lifestyle magazines.
