Notable Now Vancouver: January 17, 2014

Now On: Dine Out Vancouver Festival 2014 (January 17 to February 2, various locations)
You’ve heard and seen the hype surrounding one of Canada’s largest food-centric festivals, now it’s time to taste for yourself. With a record number of participating venues involved (more than 260), special events, seminars and noteworthy happenings, it’s a no-brainer, do-not-miss. To get things rolling, check out the Chef Soup Experiment presented by the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts starting Friday at 12:30pm. Find all DOVF details, menus and reserve your table here.   

Secret Supper Soiree – By The Sea (January 17, 24 and 31 available)
Do not miss this unique event that sells out every year and will have guests exploring the city’s unique culinary hot spots aboard a double-decker bus. The night begins as you’re greeted and then whisked away to one of many hidden locations for cocktails, canapés and dinner. Dress your best – it’s a culinary tour that could land you in the lap of luxury (or close to it). For info and to secure one of the remaining spots for the above dates, email: Tickets are $110 per person.

Coming up: FUSE featuring PuSh Festival (January 24, 750 Homer Street)
Next Friday, be sure to set your evening aside and head to the Vancouver Art Gallery for a special FUSE event in honour of The PuSh Festival that unites performing and visual arts. The two are joining forces to co-present a special edition of one of the city’s best art parties that sees the gallery transformed into a hub of activity and entertainment. Check out visiting PuSh artists, a unique poster project, performances by The Chop Theatre, DJs, and catch Cris Derksen’s experimental hip-hop cello performance. It all goes down starting at 8pm until late. Find info here.

Eat Local: Winter Farmers Market (4601 Ontario Street)
Every Saturday, head out to Nat Bailey Stadium and hand pick the season’s best.  Hundreds of vendors will be on hand selling freshly picked goods, artisan offerings, baked breads, preserves, produce and plenty more. It’s the perfect excuse to stay on that New Year cleanse – while supporting local farmers. If you’d rather tip the scales this month, gorge yourself at the January Food Truck Festival happening on-site.  Find all the details here. Market runs from 10am until 2pm.

Last Chance: Uncle Vanya (until January 18th, 1895 Venables Street)
Don’t miss out on one of the final performances of Anton Chekhov’s heart-wrenching and touching Uncle Vanya at The Blackbird Theatre (presented by The Cultch). It’s the perfect blend of love-story and drama with a masterfully woven 19th Century storyline that will completely capture your attention. It’s on for a few more weeks – so don’t miss out. Purchase tickets and find more information here.

The Nightmare After Christmas (1006 Granville Street)
Just when you thought you’d shaken off the holiday spirit, The Cellar is set to play host to a night of nerdy fun. Geekenders presents a quirky Halloween-in-January-style variety show with Burton-esque twist! Doors to this unique show open at 6pm with plenty of entertainment to keep you enticed until the wee hours (including Geekenders DJ, belly-dancing, burlesque performances and magic). Before the night is done you’ll have been introduced to Jack Skellington, the King of Halloween, as he explores the forbidden world on the outskirts of Halloween Town. Find all the details and purchase tickets here.
