Let’s face it, you’re not going to do the Scotiabank Half Marathon just to bang out 21.1 km and get a souvenir t-shirt. You could do that any day of the week around your own neighbourhood. Heck, you could do it on a treadmill. No, the reason to do any organized run is a combination of being part of a common effort by like-minded people, and the course itself.READ MORE

If we’re looking for a theme among the things to do in Vancouver in April, we guess it would be getting fat and happy! Looks like we’re obsessed with eating and drinking, and putting a smile on that dial. Without further ado, here’s our pick of things to do in Vancouver this month.
THE SUNDAY SERVICE AT THE FOX CABARET
We find that the end of the weekend is when we’re most in need of a laugh, so The Sunday Service couldn’t be timed better as far as we’re concerned. Improv is where it’s at, and the Sunday Service crew have it dialed, having niftily tucked more than 20 Canadian Comedy Awards nominations under their belt over the past few years. Doors are at 7:30 pm, which gives you time to sneak in a pre-chuckle pint or two at one of four craft breweries within a few blocks of the Fox.
