The GOODS from The Parker

Vancouver, BC | The Parker is excited to introduce one of Canada’s prodigious young talents, Chef Felix Zhou. Originally from Hunan, China and raised right here in Vancouver, Felix has been focused intently on making the most of his young culinary career. Most recently the Executive Sous Chef at Whistler’s Nita Lake Lodge, Felix has also been on the teams at West under David Hawksworth and Warren Geraghty. While in London, he earned his stripes at Jeff Galvin’s Michelin-starred La Chapelle and with Michelin Chef Simon Rogan, whose pop-up concept Roganic in Marylebone garnered rave reviews.

With his first Executive Chef position, Felix is excited to be in Vancouver’s historic and dynamic Chinatown and creating a unique, destination-worthy menu. Diners can expect refined presentation showcasing the best of BC’s seasons along with mouth-watering displays of influences and inventiveness. Along with the award-winning team led by Steve Da Cruz, The Parker is finishing a fantastic 2014 with a bang.

The all-new menu will tempt diners with warm wintry fare such as Salt-Baked Celeriac, garnished with pickled mustard seed caviar and apple emulsion; Hand-made Dumplings, seared and stuffed with roasted aubergine then drizzled with pinenut Thai curry; And for the purists, Chef Felix’s vegetarian demi-glace will lift wild mushrooms and roots out of the cellar and into your heart. But save room for his Cheesecake with Endive jam or the torched Persimmons with Kiwi sorbet!

A newly elevated Dégustation will still be the Mealshare hot ticket this winter and diners can depend on an excellent choice of wine and cocktails from Steve’s careful selection as well as his deft touch on the service side. We look forward to hosting you soon this holiday season and thank you for an amazing year.

by Grady Mitchell | GAM Gallery at 110 E Hastings Street is hosting a unique event right now. Paper Presents is halfway between an art exhibition and a holiday pop-up shop. It features the work of over 20 local artists, among them Scout favourites such as Ola Volo and Sean Karemaker, all up for grabs at Christmas-y deals and tied together by a unifying idea: every piece is made from (or presented on) paper.

Curator Tarah Hogue points out that while there are plenty of craft fairs this season, Paper Presents is a bit different. First off, entry is free for both the artists presenting the works and the visitors who’d like to see (and hopefully buy) them. Secondly, every piece in the show has been specifically selected to ensure a wide spectrum of styles and prices.

The show is up now, with a reception complete with drinks and DJs planned for Friday, November 28th (from 7pm until midnight). For more info, visit Gam Gallery’s website.

ABOUT VANCOUVER URBAN WINERY

9726999884_6af27e7e9f_k

vancouverurbanwinery.com | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | 604-566-9463

Vancouver Urban Winery is located two blocks off Gastown in the historic heart of Vancouver’s Railtown. The 7,700 square foot urban winery is the first of its kind in Vancouver and also operates as a unique special events space. The winery features a tasting bar where consumers can learn about British Columbia wines, and the exploding wine-on-tap category. Alongside the tasting bar sits a boutique wine shop full of local items, wine merchandise, artisan foods and beverages……and plenty of wine! The winery manufactures, packages, imports and distributes wine for multiple brands including Roaring Twenties Wine Co. The operations of FreshTAP, which specialize in packaging quality wines in stainless steel kegs for the emerging wine-on-tap category also takes place within the Vancouver Urban Winery.

As an urban winery the business is not attached to a specific vineyard. This enables the winery to source wine grapes and finished product from any appellation in the world. The urban winery concept brings the consumer closer to the winemaking experience in a more meaningful way than a simple wine bar or retail space might. Wine aficionados traditionally travel to remote areas to learn about winemaking firsthand and to taste the offerings of a wine producer in the setting in which they were made. Now, many urban dwellers can hop in their car for a short drive, take public transport or even walk to enjoy an authentic winery experience.

The GOODS from The Biltmore Cabaret

Flux (released Nov. 4 on Nevado Records) is a tranquil, atmospheric and concise album that is sure to land them on your radar soon.

by Sean Orr | Let this stand as the defining image of The Encounter on the Mountain: Police pushing their line forward, clashing with protesters. That cop, though! And the stache! I know it’s Movember, but way to look like the most stereotypical “pig” ever. What a joker.

Oh, but wait…they are, like, totally sensitive and caring: RCMP help keep sacred fire burning on Burnaby Mountain. “The RCMP have done all sorts of good stuff,” Preissl said. “It’s been a real … lesson for everybody…” That’s one way to look at it, or…

“Cops love co-opting Native culture and spirituality as part of their repression of Indigenous resistance, and they often find willing and naive accomplices from within Native communities to do this.” – Warrior Publications.

And for those who still somehow believe and repeat the mantra that the pipeline is about jobs vs. the environment or for our economic benefit: Trans Mountain Pipeline: Big Bucks for US Investors, Peanuts for Us. That’s just rude, man. Many of us are allergic to peanuts.

Meanwhile, in Oilberta: Jim Prentice says Alberta ‘forgot some simple truths’ on energy industry. “Prentice said his goal is to see pipelines built in every possible direction…” Like up his own ass and around the corner, too?

But getting back to cops and how awesomely awesome they are: Distraught Man Killed At Knight, East 41st Avenue. “The 51-year-old man had been shouting and waving a two-by-four piece of lumber”. Yup, our cops are afraid of wood. Here’s a video from 2011 of UK police dealing with a man wielding a machete.

Ante everything: Future is unclear for casino-resort development near BC Place. Not because of gambling addiction, opposition by local residents, concerns about crime, or it’s hideous design…nope; conflict of interest. I love BC!

I mean…I specifically love our non-colonial, historically neutral province on unceded Coast Salish Territory: What’s in a name? Time to move beyond “British”?

The perfect metaphor: Gastown Steam Clock’s cardboard replacement becomes photo star. Tourists flock to cardboard replacement of Vancouver.

See also Facadism.

Only two of 53 grocery stores in Vancouver will be able to sell liquor. Typical. This was the reaction when I told people on the Skytrain.

Bonus: It’s going down in Richmond.

The GOODS from Bistro Pastis

Vancouver, BC | Award-winning restaurateur John Blakeley and his Bistro Pastis team invite you to slow down and enjoy the holiday season. In addition to group lunches and dinners, beginning today, and available throughout the holiday season (and beyond), Bistro Pastis is offering a new $45 three-course price fixe menu, featuring favoured French bistro classics, served in a warm ambient room, replete with cozy fireplace.

Naturally, the menu will change regularly to reflect market-fresh selections. Executive chef, Spencer Watts’ initial offering includes choices featuring herbed leeks, smoked herring, Provencal bouillabaisse, and crêpes Suzette.

Because no visit is complete without a nip of France’s national aperitif; Blakeley recommends beginning your evening with a glass of Pastis, selecting from one of the largest collections in North America.

Over 15 years, Bistro Pastis has retained its relevance as one of Vancouver’s favourite French restaurants. Specializing in classic bistro fare, perfectly executed and accompanied by an extensive wine list, guests at Bistro Pastis bask in the warmth of a cozy fireplace and gracious hospitality of Restaurant Hall of Famer, John Blakeley.

Bistro Pastis is open every day for lunch and dinner (except Mondays) and brunch on weekends. Find Bistro Pastis at 2153 West 4th Avenue in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighborhood, or online at BistroPastis.com.

Located at the north end of Main Street where Gastown gets its feet wet with Railtown, Crab Park is a beauty. It’s real name is actually Portside Park, and to be honest it’s not really a park (it’s more like a long-term loan by the Port Authority). Still, it’s the closest glimpse of the ocean to Scout headquarters in Strathcona, so we have a soft spot for it (it’s even defined in our Lexicon). All of that is to say that we’d love to pick up one of Ole Originals’ recently released Crab Park T-shirts, which are hand-printed right here in Vancouver ($35).

The shite weather has us dreaming of dense warm bread leading to crispy-then-chewy breaded veal parmesan slathered in tomato sauce gone gooey with mozzarella cheese. We recently wolfed this gnarly beast at Cioffi’s new “Cucina”, located next to the delicatessen in Burnaby. A fantastic fill-up for only $7.99. Take a closer below…

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. You can also check it out in The Globe & Mail, from our calendar to theirs…and yours!

PECHA KUCHA | Pecha Kucha Night goes down Thursday night. As per usual, local creatives will be presenting 20 images for 20 seconds each on what inspires/drive/tickles them. The speaker line-up is stellar; expect to hear from artists, writers, community leaders and creative types of every stripe. The musical guest for the evening is Woodpigeon, and they’re awesome. Tickets always go quickly, so grab ‘em while you can.
Thu, Nov 27 | Doors 6:30 | Vogue Theatre (918 Granville St) | $15 | DETAILS

SCORE | Over years exploring the ruins of demolition sites, salvage yards and abandoned buildings across the United States, Craig Pearce of Union Wood Co. has amassed a collection of fantastic vintage American art (mostly 20’s-50’s). With a new workshop space (perfectly suited for a party) large enough to support an exhibition, Pearce has decided to team up with the Duchesse Vintage (also collectors of cool) for an art show, a sale featuring said items, and a bit of a party. Head over there on Saturday night and you’ll find Staring Without Caring, an exhibit of the strange — everything from odd taxidermic specimens and bizarre vintage acrylic portraits to hand painted signage and hand crafted carnival prize sculpture. It’s guaranteed to be a fun night out, like a cross between a flea market and an art exhibition with a cash bar and awesomeness abounding.
Sat, Nov 29 | Union Wood Company (1340 Pender) | DETAILS

ART | Return those empties, sell some books, dip into the piggy bank — do whatever you have to do to pull together some cash and then get yourself to Emily Carr’s Annual Student Art Sale this weekend. This sale is one of the best ways to score original art from talented local artists before they’re “discovered” and their prices climb beyond reach of us normal folks. Browse through everything from paintings and prints to sculpture and clothing. Consider it holiday shopping (but for yourself).
Nov 28-30 | 12pm-5pm (8pm on Friday) | Emily Carr University of Art and Design | DETAILS

PARTY | Belmont barbershop’s Rich Hope will shave Ken Diamond’s infamous beard down to a moustache. Handlebar, Fu Manchu, Dali or Pencil – what will he go with? This is a fundraising event for a great cause – prizes donated by Ken Diamond Leather Goods, Granted, Brassneck Brewery, The Shop, Reassembly, Campagnolo, Block, Still Life, Sanitary Electric Tattoo, and more. The event is being staged to raise awareness for all men’s health, but for one man in particular…this is for you “Bill”. (More information at ca.movember.com search “Ken Diamond”)
Sat, Nov 29 | 5-10pm | Ken Diamond Studio (756 Powell St) | DETAILS

HOORAY | The good folks behind the excellent Marché St George are celebrating their 4th anniversary this week. If you head there this Saturday you’ll be treated to 20% off of stock (everything from tea and olive oil to Pok Pok drinking cider and sea salt soap), plus you can also take the opportunity to check out launch day at the winter pop-up shop (scoot upstairs) for gorgeous textiles (think Mexican wools, beautiful linen scarves, hand knit sweaters) as well as a fresh batch of ceramics by Janaki Larsen (swoon), gorgeous art work by Klee Larsen, Woodlot scented candles, clothing by Mandula, Glasnost, and Clyde Hats and a ton of other good stuff. The 20% off sale is for Saturday only, but the pop-up continues through December.
Sat, Nov 29 | 9am-6pm | Le Marché St. George (4393 St. George) | DETAILS

EVERYTHING WILL BE | Julia Kwan’s great documentary about our changing Chinatown screens at Vanity Theatre this weekend. If you didn’t catch Everything Will Be at the Vancouver Film Festival last month, take this opportunity! From VIFF: “It’s a neighbourhood in transition, a culture in decline – or on the cusp of gentrification. This isn’t an advocacy doc, but a wise, ruminative portrait, an elegy perhaps, but also a celebration of entrepreneurial energy, resilience and creativity.” For a recent Scout interview with Kwan – and a sense of what the film covers – have a look here.
Nov 28 – Dec 1 | Various Times | Vanity Theatre (1181 Seymour St) | DETAILS  

FAMILY FUSE | This is a good weekend to take small people to the Vancouver Art Gallery. It’s Family FUSE Weekend! The theme is Forbidden City: Inside the Court of China’s Emperors. Not only do kids under 12 get in for free with a paying adult but there’ll be live music (Beijing Opera and UBC Chinese Ensemble on site) and some extra fun activities to encourage creativity in an exploration of “The Past, The New, The Now”.
Sat–Sun, Nov 29-30 | 10am-5pm | Vancouver Art Gallery | 22.50 for grown-ups | DETAILS

CRAFTY | The community of Strathcona is getting together for a kickass winter craft fair this weekend. The little neighbourhood (bordering on DTES and Chinatown) is jam-packed with talented, creative, and community-minded people, so it’s no surprise that there will be 50 vendors this year. Put a dent in your holiday shopping list. Bonus: Santa will totally appreciate how you support local artisans and independent designers!
Sat, Nov. 29 | 10am-4pm | Strathcona Community Centre (601 Keefer) | DETAILS

DESIGN SUNDAY | The Vancouver Design Nerds will be hosting a Nerd Jam at The Museum of Vancouver this Sunday. If you’ve not yet had an opportunity to attend one of these, you should give it a try. Expect a community conversation intended to engage Vancouverites in a creative dialogue about housing. As MOV explains, this event will focus on “identifying successful and improvable spaces of connection in our local communities and neighbourhoods. On-the-fly mapping and visual stocktaking of these spaces will allow participants to see how their ways of living connect them to the experiences of others.” Take part in a community conversation and make a solid start to civic improvement on a personal scale!
Sun, Nov. 30 | 2:30-5pm | Museum of Vancouver (1100 Chestnut St) | $15 | DETAILS

EAT LOCAL | There are two Winter Farmers Market to choose from this weekend. Head to the Nat Bailey Stadium parking lot on Saturday or skip over to the skatepark at the PNE on Sunday and load up on locally grown fruits and veggies as well as fresh bread, honey, dried fruits and scores of other goodies (this is the last weekend that the Hastings Skatepark market will be running, after Sunday, we’re down to only one market – Nat Bailey).
Sat, Nov 29 | 10am – 2pm | Nat Bailey Stadium (4601 Ontario St) | DETAILS
Sun, Nov 30 | 10am-2pm | Hastings Skatepark, PNE (Renfrew and Hastings) | DETAILS

Good news for those living/working Downtown

After much speculation and anticipation the location of Chef David Hawksworth’s new restaurant, opening in downtown Vancouver, can finally be announced. Hawksworth Restaurant Group’s new venture will take centre stage on the ground and mezzanine level of Oxford Property Group’s MNP Tower; located at 1021 West Hastings Street. The location was once the home of University and Quadra Clubs and has an eye-catching heritage façade.

“Echoing the original Hawksworth Restaurant, our new venture will still place an emphasis on BC’s seasonal produce and showcase our take on the region’s incredible variety of fresh flavour,” says Chef David Hawksworth. “The vision behind the new restaurant will be clean, uncomplicated, ingredient-forward fare with a modern, playful twist.” A prominent bar will be the focal point, helping to create an approachable, laid-back atmosphere in the industrial rustic-chic space. The new environment will offer a dining ambiance that is perfect for business lunches, after-dinner drinks or celebrations.

“We are extremely excited to partner with renowned Chef David Hawksworth to bring a world-class restaurant to MNP Tower,” says Chuck We, Director of Leasing at Oxford Properties. “The restaurant will be a superb amenity and experience for both Oxford’s customers and the surrounding community when it opens later in 2015.”

Chef Hawksworth’s new restaurant will find its home in a 7,400-foot space seating 120 and with the interior designed by Alessandro Munge, of the multi-award winning Canadian design firm Munge Leunge. Munge Leunge was also the firm behind the James Beard nominated design of the original Hawksworth Restaurant. The MNP Tower, the new restaurant’s location, boasts the last true waterfront views in Downtown Vancouver and was designed by world-renowned architectural firm Kohn Pederson Fox.

Here’s what we wrote about the search for the new location in January:

David Hawksworth, owner of Hawksworth restaurant in the Hotel Georgia and widely regarded as one of Canada’s top chefs, is opening a new restaurant in downtown Vancouver next year.

He recently secured a location in a new building and aims to take possession at the end of this summer. He hopes – with crossed fingers – to open for business six months later. It’s a big space, with 2,500 sqft dedicated to the kitchen and 3,500 sqft earmarked for the floor. The restaurant will offer seating for 120 people, with a long bar being the core focal point. The address is being kept a secret for the time being, and the name has yet to be set in stone. Both will be revealed soon.

The concept is going to be considerably more relaxed than what David has delivered in the past. He likens the style of food to a vegetable-friendly and health conscious Southern Californian blend of Italian and Spanish cuisines with a strong emphasis on sharing. That sounds like a brave and delicious departure from the subtly expressed West Coast Canadiana that has won him so many accolades in the past, dating all the way back to his storied tenure at South Granville’s West.

It also sounds less expensive. Even though lunch at the Cactus Club costs roughly the same as at Hawksworth, there is a perception – on account of the latter’s fine dining credentials and awards – that the cost is prohibitive. David nevertheless confirms that prices at the new restaurant will reflect its casual atmosphere, but jokingly adds that “You’ll have the chance to spend your money if you want to.”

About

L’Abattoir is located in the center of Gastown between historic Gaoler’s Mews and Blood Alley. The restaurant was built in the 19th century and is the site of Vancouver’s first jail. Originally buttressed to the city’s main butchery and meat packing district, the name L’Abattoir pays homage to the neighbourhood’s colourful past.

Set in a refurbished brick and beam building that combines classic French tile work with industrial fixtures, natural wood, and glass and steel finishes, the restaurant offers a bar and lounge setting, elevated dining room and plush, sun soaked atrium.

Chef Lee Cooper and General Manager Paul Grunberg are dedicated to highlighting the finer points of eating and drinking in L’Abattoir’s informed but informal setting. French-influenced West Coast fare is paired with Sommelier Robert Herman’s eclectic wine program and Head Barman Shaun Layton’s innovative cocktail list to offer a truly unique dining experience.

The GOODS from Campagnolo

Vancouver, BC | Remember the joy you felt as a little kid after receiving an invitation to attend a birthday party at your favourite burger joint? You wouldn’t think as an adult such an invitation would muster up the same level of glee. At least not until now. ‘Upstairs’ at Campagnolo has launched two unique and delicious early bird feasts featuring locally crafted beer paired with their most acclaimed comfort dishes: the ‘dirty’ burger and the fried chicken. Designed to be the first party stop of the evening, each feast feeds up to 32 guests and is available only at 5PM.

The Burger & Beer and Fried Chicken & Beer parties include private use of the bar for 2 hours (starting at 5PM), a personal bartender and all the fixings for $1,000. Guests who book the burger party will each receive the infamous dirty burger made with 40-day dry-aged beef, plus hand cut french fries, house made pickles, seasonal greens and growlers of locally sourced beer to share. Those who opt for the fried chicken party will chow down on crispy buttermilk fried chicken, homestyle potato salad, crunchy coleslaw and delicious craft beer. Party planners can even choose to pull out all of the stops and provide their guests with a combination of both parties for $1,400.

‘Upstairs’ at Campagnolo Fried Chicken and Burger Party Breakdown:
