Yaletown’s Kissmas enables you to get all your shopping done early—and locally. On weekdays from now until December 13, select vendors (including Skoah, HerSociety, and Luxe Beauty Lounge) are putting together extra special gifts, promos, and giveaways. Shopping close to home is better for the environment, and also something you can brag about at holiday parties while everyone else is grumbling about Uber.
When: Monday, December 2 – Friday, December 6 and Monday, December 9 – Friday, December 13Where: YaletownMore Info: yaletowninfo.com
Fable Home is hosting Fable with Friends: The One With the Wine Tasting this week, which doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the actual TV show but is a great excuse to relax in a New York Chic space with friends old and new. Tickets get you tastings of three Portuguese wines paired with Portuguese-inspired eats by chef Juno Kim, plus a cocktail or Windfall cider.

This San Diego-born Gen Z’er may be only 20, but don’t let his 1.6 million Youtube subscribers hear you knocking his talent. Conan Gray’s dream pop jams have been appealing to moody teens since his debut album Sunset Season in 2018, and his Comfort Crowd tour is rolling in to Vancouver just in time for his 21st birthday (that’s Wednesday).

If you love hearing second- or third-hand stories of that gal who got stood up at a couples massage or that guy who wore crocs and socks on a first date, you’ll love Story Party. Part comedy show, part party, this is one evening celebrating the best of the worst dating stories. Taking the stage is both professional storytellers and local amateurs—take the stage before your ex does.
When: Saturday, December 7 7:00 p.m.Where: Biltmore CabaretCost: $25More Info: storyparty.co
Finish off the week by settling in to a holiday movie night at Bells and Whistles. Planes, Trains and Automobiles is the second in the Christmas movie series (you may have missed Die Hard, but you can still catch Home Alone on the 15th and Elf on the 22nd). Chow down on free popcorn and happy hour specials like $7 Negronis and $5 classic hot dogs—it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, which means you can binge on both movies and snacks guilt-free.
When: Sunday, December 8 9:00 p.m.Where: Bells and WhistlesMore Info: bellsandwhistlesyvr.ca
