Did you know that in sunny California they call this month’s weather the June Gloom? It’s best just to wear a lot of layers and get on with it. Here’s what we’ve come up with for this weekend in Kits to keep you out of the rain:

Shop

Friday, June 9th

Local artist Liz Clay from Cici Art Factory on West 12th is having a spring studio sale from 10am-2pm (10am-4pm on Saturday). Liz specializes in art for little eyes, so come by and pick up a few whimsical and inspiring art prints for the child in your life. Everything will be on sale including $5, $10, and $25 selections, plus free personalization of all canvases and door prizes too. Children are welcome and there will be a craft table set up to keep them occupied while you browse. Bonus – if you bring in a pair of used youth runners you’ll receive a $5 discount off your order. The runners will be donated to a lower mainland school in need.

Saturday, June 10th

The Museum of Vancouver is hosting an Animating History Workshop for families today from 12pm till 4:30pm. Together with your clan, you’ll be able to create your family history through storyboarding, drawing, and developing a short film, all with guidance from experts. No experience is required, just a bit of knowledge on your family’s previous whereabouts. The rate for this workshop includes general museum admission. Register in advance as spots are limited.

Eat

Sunday, June 11th

For something a little different, fancy newcomer Mak N Ming on Yew Street is now open for Sunday brunch from 10am-4pm and offers an unusual menu of Japanese dishes that are beautifully influenced with French and Chinese flair. While it’s usually a seasonal set menu here for dinner, the brunch menu will be a-la-carte and will include co-owner and chef Makoto Ono’s (Mak) take on okonomiyaki (a type of savoury pancake), and some gorgeous desserts created by co-owner and pastry chef Amanda Cheng (Ming). Reservations are recommended.
