Christmas Jazz Club

I usually don't look forward to the holidays overly much, but this weekend has been so awesome, it's really changed my outlook. We brought our tree home and decorated it Friday evening, did some Christmas crafts and baked brownies. While looking for some music we found an old CD, all of this 1930's jazz/swing type music. I'm not even sure…


Vancouver Tourism Challenge

I’ve just had the most amazing weekend, and thought it might be of interest to others living here in Vancouver.

I wasn’t even aware of this until a couple days ago, but there is a great program here called the Vancouver Tourism Challenge, which is available to everyone working or volunteering in the tourism industry in the city. How it works is each spring participants are given a tourism challenge passport, which grants free admission for themselves and a guest to a whole slew of tourist attractions in the city and surrounding areas for the next month. By collecting stamps in the passport at enough of these attractions, they earn free admissions for the entire year, as well as discounts at restaurants, hotels, and being entered to win prizes.
