What to do this weekend in Kits: June 1 – 3


“Canned tuna” at Fable – the newest addition to Kits’ edgy restaurant scene.


1) Visit Fable Restaurant before the final episode of Top Chef, June 4. Top Chef Competitor Trevor Bird and partners threw their grand launch party last night and the local media was out in full force to sample eats like: chickpea fritters, picked red onion, shoots, curry mayo; potato crusted chicken with ratatouille; slow cooked arctic char, gnocchi, kale, leeks, spinach purée and bread pudding with mascarpone. We want to know what you think about the newest Kits hotspot.

2) Enjoy retail therapy at the new Leo Boutique. Leo brings hip, designer clothing for both guys and gals (J Brand, Rich and Famous, Opening Ceremony) to 2074 West 4th Avenue.

3) Hide from the rain in Fifth Avenue Cinemas. Bernie, Bruno’s Blues, Hysteria and the feel-good Judie Dench/Maggie Smith double whammy The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel are all playing at Fifth.

4) Get tix for Bard on the Beach. The beloved Vanier Park Shakespeare Fest is on now through September. Seats go fast, especially for the bbq event.

5) Sign up to host a Car Free Day block party, June 16-17.  Car Free Days, June 16-17, are one of the most festive block-parties of Kits summer along with Greek Day, Canada Day and Celebration of Light. Hosting a party is easier than you think. To get started, go to the Host a Block Party in Kitsilano page.

    Sunday at 4pm: be on Kits Beach for a photo showing you oppose oil tankers in BC!


    “Prime Minister Harper wants to build pipelines across BC and let foreign oil companies bring supertankers to our coast to ship oil to Asia.

    That’s a bad deal for everyone. It’s a disaster-in-waiting for our coast, and it will bring the world one step closer to runaway climate change.

    BC’s Premier, Christy Clark, says she hasn’t made up her mind on this issue yet. We say it’s time to take a stand. If she cares about our future, she needs to say no to pipelines and supertankers.

    If you agree, then we want to put you in the picture! We’re taking out a full page ad in the Sun and Province — see below — so that we can tell the Premier that it is time to act. These ads will be seen by hundreds of thousands of British Columbians!

    Originally we planned to just invite constituents in the riding to join in the photo, but the response we’ve had on the street has been so overwhelming that we’ve decided to invite everyone who cares to join us on June 3rd for the photo shoot. The current and future voters of Vancouver Point Grey are organizing this and collecting donations for the ad because Christy Clark is our MLA. However, she’s everyone’s Premier, so if you care and want to send a message, then join us!

    Ready to take part? Please meet us at Kits Beach at 4 pm on June 3rd for the photo shoot for the ad. We hope you can contribute to the cost of the ad, and we also hope you will “register” for the event, because the ad is just the first step — we want to build a strong network of concerned citizens so that we can call on government to take action. Questions about the campaign? Contact us at climate_action@vtacc.org.

    A full page ad in both papers costs $13,440. That’s a lot of money — until you divide the cost up between all the people who care about this issue and want action. Many small donations will get the job done! Money raised as of May 26th: more than $10,000.
