VANCOUVER FOODSTER OLD FASHIONED COCKTAIL CHALLENGE
Until October 27
Origo Club is one of a number of local bars and restaurants competing in the annual Vancouver Foodster Old Fashioned Cocktail Challenge. For this year’s competition, Bar Manager Winson Ho created a custom rendition of the cocktail standard called ‘The Peculiar Fashion’ which combines the sherry-like flavours of Jura Vin Jaune with 15-year-old Madeira Cask Irish Whiskey Tyrconnell for a libation that is at turns dry and mellow, warming and fresh. The Peculiar Fashion will be available at the Origo Club bar from now until October 27 for $20.
‘PRESERVING THE HISTORY OF NINSTINTS’ EXHIBIT
Until October 27
Artist’s Talk Saturday, October 12 from 2 to 4 p.m.
Origo Club is proud to present realist painter Bob Gunning’s ‘Preserving the History of Ninstints’ exhibit of Haida totem-pole paintings in its art gallery from now until October 27, with a special artist’s talk talking place this Saturday, October 12 from 2 to 4 p.m.
Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ninstints (SGang Gwaay Llanagaay) was once part of a community of 26 Haida villages scattered throughout Haida Gwaii, and the totem poles that are found there comprise the largest collection of Haida artwork still in their original location. Part of Gunning’s purpose in painting the poles is to help preserve the history and culture of the islands for generations to come. The Origo Club art gallery is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and admission is free.
