Snowed In Comedy Tour

For something a little less cultured, we’ve got just the idea! The Snowed In Comedy Tour is stopping in Vancouver this weekend, as part of a massive coast-to-coast extravaganza. This tour has been rocking since 2009, and if that doesn’t give you confidence in buying a ticket, we don’t know what will.

When: Sunday, January 23rd
Where: 918 Granville Street
Cost: $42.76

Canyon Lights

If you still haven’t been, know that this is the last weekend to enjoy one of Vancouver’s most beautiful attractions- Canyon Lights at the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Things might be a little busy because of the weather, so try to head down early and catch the sunset as well!

Watch an iconic movie on the big screen

We consider it a rite of passage to stumble across a Hayao Miyazaki movie and end up binging like 3 or 4 in a row. But, very rarely to we actually get to see one of his works on the big screen. That changes this week, since The Cinematheque will be showing the adorable My Neighbor Totoro.

When: Showtimes throughout the weekend
Where: 1131 Howe Street
Cost: $14 for GA

Alright, that’s what we’ve got on tap for this weekend in Vancouver! Have some fun and go enjoy yourselves out there!
