If going to casual-fine chain restaurant openings is the kind of thing that wins you bragging rights among your friends (or you’re just itching for a Sea Bus ride) head to Joey Shipyards for their grand opening this week. The 9,500 square foot restaurant has some pretty stunning waterfront views, and the views inside aren’t bad either—look out for the work of local artists Brent Comber and Shawn Hunt.

You never quite know what you’re going to find in a consignment store—unless it’s the Archive Closet Raid, that is. You can take a scroll through the profiles of local trendsetters Sharday Engel and Jennifer Pistor to get a pretty good idea of what you’ll find. The closet raid features their own pre-loved clothing. No costume-y finds here (unless you’re anticipating going as a style influencer for Halloween 2020).
When: Saturday, January 25 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.Where: ARC ApparelCost: Free admissionMore Info: heyarchive.ca
