It’s hard to imagine 2080—in fact, it’s hard to imagine 2021—but artist Sanaz Mazinani has given it her best, beautiful shot. All that Melts: Notes from the Future-Past is a new site-specific exhibition you can’t miss if you’re taking a stroll down Georgia. Digitally manipulated glaciers contrast with Vancouver’s native plants and flowers, but every plant included won’t be able to survive in 2080 given our forecasted climate change.

Listen up, earth-conscious foodies: chef Christopher Lam launched Straight and Marrow last week, and he’s cooking up Asian-inspired dishes with sustainability in mind. His “nose-to-tail” philosophy uses bits and bobs that other chefs might waste (try the bone marrow with chicken crackling and pickled shitake mushrooms). Bar Manager Chad Rivard is pouring drinks that highlight the meat-forward menu—think marrow-infused Mongrel White Rye with B&B and beef stock. Feeling marrow-minded?Where: Straight and MarrowMore Info: straightandmarrow.com
The Chilliwack Sunflower Festival returns this year with a slightly different look, and that probably means it will be easier to score those once-a-year flower power pics. Only 1/4 of the usual number of people will be allowed in the field at one time, there’s wide pathways between rows, and no picnic tables or lawn games. The time to snap a shameless selfie is now—there’s no one around to accidentally photobomb your perfect pose. The fest itself will be open in the next couple weeks, but you can get your tickets starting Friday.

We love reimagined events, we love the outdoors, and we love portmanteaus. Once you register in this year’s Bikennale/Walknnale, you’ll get a GPS bike and walking tour that highlights local art, architecture and history each week. The tours take participants through 24 Vancouver neighbourhoods, and there’s weekly prizes available. It’s all self-paced—time is fake, after all.
