Jersey Boys in Vancouver

When: November 14 to November 19, 2017

They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story — a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.

Featuring the legendary Top 10 hits: “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Walk Like A Man”, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, “December, 1963 (Oh What A Night)”.

Weekend Wine: TintoNegro 2015 Mendoza Malbec

Thursday, September 21st, 2017 — 1:20pm PDT

Miss604 and The Wine Syndicate are pleased to present a new bi-weekly series to help you gear up for the weekend in style. Weekend Wine will showcase new-to-you wineries, familiar favourites, and perfect pairings that you can pick up at your local purveyor.

Weekend Wine Selection

Mendoza is responsible for producing over 70% of Argentina’s wine and is by far the largest and best-known winemaking region in the country. For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec.

TintoNegro, meaning black wine in Spanish, is meant to celebrate the essence of Malbec in Mendoza. Known for its dark, blackish color Malbec is definitely a TintoNegro.

Tasting & Pairing Notes

Sourced from Mendoza’s Primera Zona of Maipu and Lujan de Cuyo, this Mendoza blend is meant to showcase the exceptional value and approachable profile of Malbec.

It’s a rich and textured Malbec, with the dark juiciness of a handful of blackberries. Pair with a charcuterie plate rounded out with aged cheeses, and berries. Of course pairing it with red meat is also highly recommended in Argentina:

Where to Buy

The TintoNegro 2015 Mendoza Malbec is available widely at over 100 BC Liquor Stores for just $14.99.

Please enjoy responsibly. Must be 19+.

The Museum of Vancouver (“MOV”) explores our city’s rich history of protest demonstrations with City on Edge: A Century of Vancouver Activism, a new photo-based exhibition showcasing rarely seen walks of resistance.

The collection features 650 photographs of demonstrations, occupations, riots, blockades, and strikes from the early 1900s to the present day, capturing those transformative moments when the city showed up, stood up, and rallied for change – or exploded in anger.

MOV Presents City on Edge: A Century of Vancouver Activism

Dates: September 28, 2017 to February 18, 2018
Where: Museum of Vancouver (1100 Chestnut St, Vancouver)

Visitors will find themselves in a dynamic and interactive environment of large digital projections, short films, and animated sounds of protest rallies and choirs, inviting the public to engage with and think about the impact of grassroots activism in their lives.

The photos capture emotionally raw and transformative moments in the lives of Vancouverites. Large digital projections and films coupled with animated sounds of protest choirs will create an immersive environment that will inspire the public to think about the impact of grassroots activism in their lives.

From the shore workers’ strike at the Battle of Ballantyne Pier in 1935 to rallying of anti-logging groups at Clayoquot Sound in 1993, these records demonstrate the power of “ordinary people” in mobilizing public opinion and effecting change locally and globally.

The exhibition is designed by Amir Ofek and co-curated by Kate Bird, a retired Pacific Newspaper Group librarian, and Viviane Gosselin, Director of Collections & Exhibitions at MOV. Kate Bird’s new book will be published in the fall by Greystone Books entitled City on Edge: A Rebellious Century of Vancouver Protests, Riots, and Strikes. MOV’s upcoming exhibition expands on this book, showcasing a significantly larger number of photographs in a dramatic multimedia environment.

BelleWood Acres Apple Farm in Lynden

“I would hate to have to confiscate your apples,” the Canadian border guard said with a smile as I re-entered the country. I was returning from a trip to Lynden, Washington where I spent three days bike riding, whale watching, appreciating art, and learning about local history. One of the highlights of my little getaway on the other side of the 49th parallel was BelleWood Acres apple farm. While I did not pick any apples, or attempt to bring any back across the border – since you can’t do that – I did sip cider, sample spirits, roll through the orchard in a golf cart, play among sunflowers and corn stalks, and eat one of the best turkey sandwiches around.

  • Location: #6140 WA-539 (Guide Meridian Rd) less than 20 minutes directly south of the Aldergrove border crossing.
  • Hours: Daily 8:00am to 5:00pm

Bellewood Acres is one of Northwest Washington’s largest apple orchards. You can pick your own apples and your own pumpkins from their pumpkin patch, and their farm market features fresh, locally grown produce. They have around 20 varieties of apples grown on site, from Honeycrisp, Gala, and Mountain Rose to Sunrise and their own BelleWood Prince.

Heading south of Guide Meridian, or north if you’re coming from Bellingham, you can’t miss the big red barn. The 14,000 square foot building hosts an expanded farm market, gift shop, Country Cafe and bakery, and the distillery tasting room.
