This art exhibit will make you hungry. Feast for the Eyes explores the history of food photography through three themes: “Still Life,” “Around the Table” (the social dynamics of eating) and “Playing with Food” (the role of food in performance and play). Think old cookbooks, fashion photography, vintage cards, advertisements—if it’s food-related, it’s on the table (pun intended, thanks). Entry is by donation.
The Dancers of Damelahamid are celebrating a meaningful year with the 14th annual Coastal Dance Festival—it’s a reimagined virtual fest, and the first one since the passing of beloved elder Margaret Harris (who founded the Dancers of Damelahamid and the annual fest now known as the Coastal Dance Festival). There’s a lineup of local and international acts from across the Northwest Coast, including a short new work filmed at Anvil Centre honouring Harris and her work in revitalizing Indigenous song and dance.
Blueberries aren’t your average pizza topping, but there’s no time like the pandemic to get adventurous in your own kitchen. The British Columbia Blueberry Council (yes, that’s a thing) is putting on a cook-a-long blueberry dinner this Friday—pre-order soon for ingredient delivery on Thursday. On the menu is blueberry prosciutto goat cheese flatbread, roasted yam and blueberry kale salad and blueberry sauce for your ice cream. If you miss the online class, all the recipes are also available online.
Opera fans (and comedy fans) listen up: The Music Shop is this weekend. The show’s plot follows a “meek husband” as he “desperately searches a music shop for a song requested by his wife”—a song he can’t remember the name of, or the tune. This is the Canadian digital premiere of the opera and is performed by local musicians.
The Bellevue Bites food crawl was organized by Sophie Sajnani, a high school sophomore from—you guessed it—Bellevue, WA. Since the pandemic began, she’s been supporting local restaurants through organizing events. Her Vancouver food crawl this Saturday includes a croissant from Nelson the Seagull, seven mini donuts from Cin City Donuts, a bagel from Kind Cafe, a slice of pizza from Vegan Cave, a hojicha oat misto from Paragon Tea Room and a drink from Milano Coffee Roasters. Not bad for $20—and you’ll get your steps in.
