If you told us that K-OS and Hey Ocean! were headlining a show at Vancouver’s lovely Vogue Theatre and tickets were just $35, we would likely barrel you over in our rush to score awesome seats. So imagine if that same concert was actually a fundraiser for an excellent cause? Surprise! The annual #SingitFwd show is just that!
If you’re the sort of person that refers to snow as “pow,” then you’re already 100 % aware that Whistler and Vancouver’s local mountains are already open for the winter season.

Thanks to popular demand, one of our favourite deals is back! Through until December 30, 2014, you can book a stay in one of The Burrard’s downtown Vancouver modern-retro guest rooms through BeVancouver, and you’ll score a $75 American Express gift card to spend on whatever your heart desires.
Yes sir, it’s the holiday season. But that doesn’t mean that everything you do has to be cinnamon-scented and draped with a thick layer of sparkly lights, which is why three out of the four ideas we have for you this month have nothing to do with either!

HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES AT VANCOUVER AQUARIUM
The Vancouver Aquarium knows how to do the holidays right. It’s one of our top picks for visitors with kids (who can resist Scuba Claus?), but features like Jelly Swarm, a light installation created with origami artist Joseph Wu, keep us grown-ups coming back for more as well. While you’re there, check out a screening of the Polar Express 4-D Experience in their theatre, as well as their tree powered by electric eels. Yes. Electric eels.
