Things to do in Vancouver, March 2015

Things to do in Vancouver  |  02.24.2015  |  

March is when we start to get optimistic – winter’s about done and we can see the light (and cherry blossoms) at the end of the tunnel! This month we’re getting a dose of Warhol, the luck of the Irish, dinner with new friends, and Frank Sinatra’s getting under our skin. Here are our picks for things to do in Vancouver during March.

Andy Warhol Show in Vancouver - The Burrard Hotel
WARHOL: A DIFFERENT IDEA OF LOVE

Whether it’s soup cans on our sneakers or Marilyn screen-printed on your coffee mug, Andy Warhol’s iconic works have thoroughly permeated our day-to-day lives. A showing of 80 Warhol prints and paintings is the sort of blockbuster exhibit that major galleries dream about, so it blows our mind that this show, “WARHOL – A Different Idea of Love,” is being presented in a Yaletown warehouse with free admission.
March 1 – 30 (excluding Sundays), warholvancouver.com

Vancouver Rainy Day Activities - The Burrard Hotel

It’s February in Vancouver, and while other cities in Canada (and much of the US) are getting a ton of snow, we’re lucky enough to have the heavens open and drench us with glorious rain. Lucky? Well, we think so. The thing about rain is that once it stops, it’s gone—no shoveling, no icy footpaths, no scary driving. It’s just back to pleasant, mild temperatures and we can get on with our business.

But while that downpour is happening, you might want to look for a few Vancouver rainy day activities to make the most of your time indoors. The obvious choices are the city’s museums, galleries and indoor attractions like the Vancouver Aquarium. But if you’re looking for something beyond that, we’ve got you covered. (See what we just did?) Here’s a list of our favourite Vancouver rainy day activities.

As you know, we love to show off our mid-century modern style and retro guestrooms to anyone who shows even a vague interest. And all that grooviness and our downtown Vancouver location often attracts the eye of some of Vancouver’s best photographers who see the potential of The Burrard as a backdrop for their next photo shoot. The latest of these photographers was Matthew Chen who was looking for a location as handsome as dapper dude, Todd Talbot.

Things to do in Vancouver, Feb 2015

Things to do in Vancouver  |  01.27.2015  |  

February is a month that makes Vancouverites a bit nostalgic. Nope, not because of the sap-fest that’s Valentine’s Day, but because February was the month that the city hosted the Olympic Winter Games back in 2010! Thanks to the Games, not only did we develop a fondness for this month’s bright winter days, but we also inherited some cool “legacy” events that still happen in the city each February. So if you’re looking for things to do in Vancouver in February, look no further.
