SCOUT LIST | Ten Things That You Should Absolutely Do Between Now And Next Week

June 9, 2015.

FullSizeRender-(3)

by Michelle Sproule | The main objective of this website is to scout out and promote the things that make Vancouver such a sweet place to be. We do this with an emphasis on the city’s independent spirit to foster a sense of connectedness within and between our communities, and to introduce our readers to the people who grow and cook our food, play the raddest tunes in our better venues, create our most interesting art, and design everything from what we wear to the spaces we inhabit. The Scout List is our carefully considered, first rate agenda of super awesome things that we’re either doing, wishing that we could do, or conspiring to do this week. To submit an event for consideration, email events [at] scoutmagazine.ca You can also check it out in the Globe & Mail, from our calendar to theirs…and yours!

ENGAGE | Heritage Vancouver has assembled a panel of planners and heritage conservation specialists to address “what features contribute to the character of main streets and how this character can be maintained while allowing main streets to evolve.” Sounds awesome, right? Following the talk there will be an open discussion encouraging audience participation. The hope is that contributions and feedback on the topic will contribute to The City of Vancouver Heritage Action Plan (an initiative that officially revises how the COV manages heritage conservation).
June 12 | 7-9pm | Goldcorp Centre for the Arts (149 W. Hastings) | DETAILS

ART | There is a kickass group show hitting the walls of the Winsor Gallery this week. Concurrent features works by local talents such as Fiona Ackerman, Andy Dixon, Jay Senetchko, Gordon Smith, Luke Parnell, Adam Stenhouse, Gary Pearson, and many more. It’ll be a good opening night – no question about that.
June 13 – July 11 | 2-5pm | Winsor Gallery (258 E 1st Ave) | DETAILS

PROTECT | If you’re down at Jericho Beach on Saturday you’ll notice crowds of people coming together to celebrate the beach. “The event is free and part of Greenpeace’s People vs Oil campaign […] it is a celebratory/joyful protest of drilling on BC’s coast and Arctic oil exploration.” Expect talking, music, food and art, as well as good intentions, seaweed and sand.
Sat, June 13 | 4pm-twilight | Jericho Beach (3000 Block Point Grey) | Free | DETAILS

FLY | The British Columbia Kite Fliers Association (yup, it’s a thing) is gathering members for a whole bunch of fun at Vanier Park this weekend. Expect demos (you’d be amazed at the mad skills that some of these kite fliers can have), displays and kite-making workshops, as well as music and refreshments. Cross your fingers for wind and watch out for goose poo.
June 13-14 | 10am–4pm | Vanier Park, Kits | DETAILS

NIGHT MARKETS | Wandering a carnival, festival or night market in the lovely warmth of a summer evening can be magic. This weekend there are several options to choose from. Head to Richmond for the Richmond Night Market or the International Summer Night Market (rumour has it that Richmond is the one with game), or take a sublime sunset seabus ride over to North Van for a spin around the Shipyards Night Market. What night isn’t a little bit better after a potato tornado and an ice cream chaser? Add on a new set of cheap socks FTW.
Richmond Night Market | Fri+Sat (7pm–midnight) Sun (7pm-11pm) | 8351 River Rd| $2.75 | DETAILS
International Summer Night Market | Fri+Sat (6pm-11pm); Sun (6-10pm) | 12631 Vulcan Way | Free | DETAILS
Shipyards Night Market | 5-10pm | Lonsdale Quay in North Van | DETAILS

RIDE | Velopalooza is a two week-long community-run bike fun fest that goes down from June 12th to the 28th. With close to 70 events (rides, tours and meet-ups) planned, this is a good time to get your bike out of hibernation and back on the road. This week you can participate in the Heron Ride & Picnic, something called Soft Serve Sunday (presented by East Van Bike Polo), or just take an easy seawall cycle. Oh, and Saturday is World Naked Bike Ride ride, so that’s happening. Naked or clothed, there’s definitely something for everyone.
June 12–28 | Various times and locations | Free | DETAILS

SCORE | This is the season of the Garage Sale. Cruising alleys and driveways for quality sales is traditionally a hit and miss activity. Sometimes you find an exactly perfect picnic blanket or pick up some sweet vinyl. Other times it can be a castaway shit show of headless barbies and VHS tapes. Increase your chances of scoring the good stuff by hitting the Hawks Avenue Yard Sale this Sunday. The pickings are along Hawks Ave. between Keefer and Prior St., and along the edges of McLean Park.
Sun, June 14 | 9am-1pm | Hawks Ave, Strathcona | DETAILS

ITALIAN DAY | Sunday is Italian Day on Commercial Drive. There are few things more intoxicatingly ‘Vancouver’ than a little sunshine on your face as you walk the centre line of The Drive through a gentle haze of incense, weed, and curbside barbecue smoke. Add to that some tasty scoops of gelato, good coffee, and a focus on Italian Art and you’re set. Remember to leave your car at home because this is a car free event!
Sun, June 14 | 12pm-8pm | Commercial Drive (Venables to Grandview) | Free | DETAILS

WATCH | The Vancouver International Film Festival and Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival have combined forces to offer heat-wary Vancouverites the perfect excuse to hide out in air conditioned big screen sanctuaries. The Best of Hot Docs brings together ten compelling documentary films. From Jesus Town USA (“In this cinematically stylish comedy, the Wichita foothills stand in for Jerusalem as a small Christian community that has reenacted Christ’s Passion for 88 years grapples with the news that the paperboy playing Jesus is a Buddhist.”) to Live From New York! (Saturday Night Live alum look back on 40 years of comedy genius), the highly entertaining line up (have a peek at the full list here) could keep you chilled and entertained for most of the daylight hours over the weekend. Come out smarter, cooler, and full of popcorn. $12 a pop (or get frugal and grab three-pack of tickets for only $27).
June 12-16 | Various times | Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour St) | $12 | DETAILS

EAT LOCAL | We are now up and running with a full compliment of neighbourhood farmers markets! Load up on fresh fruits and vegetables, breads, preserves, cheeses – pretty much everything – made and grown by people who honestly and deeply care. Support farmers and artisan makers. Eat well, folks, and rejoice!
Wednesday | 2pm – 6pm | Main St Station (1100 Station St) | DETAILS
Thursday | 2pm – 6pm | Yaletown (1200 Mainland) | DETAILS
Saturday | 9am – 2pm | Trout Lake (Lakewood Drive @ 13th) | DETAILS

Saturday | 9-2pm | Burnaby City Hall (4949 Canada Way) | DETAILS
