Here’s what’s on this weekend in Kitsilano, from dining out, to indulging in sweets, and some cerebral stuff, too.


Thursday, January 18th

The Museum of Vancouver is hosting a discussion night tonight from 7pm till 9pm, called “When Labour Walks the Line: The Workers’ Side of the Story”. Join guest panellists and discuss the significant job action events across Vancouver’s recent labour history. Admission is $15.

The annual Dine Out Vancouver Festival officially starts today and many of your favourite Kitsilano restaurants (AnnaLena, Baru, Cacao, East is East, Fable, Mak n Ming, Mission, Rocky Mountain, and more) are part of this event and will have specially priced and selected menus available. Make reservations now to make sure you get a chance to try some of these places in the neighbourhood.

Saturday, January 20th

Stop by one or all of your favourite Kitsilano spots including Koko Monk, Chocolate Arts, 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters, La Glace, Terra Breads, and Thomas Haas to try their special cocoa concoctions for the annual Hot Chocolate Festival which starts today. Liquid chocolate will be blended with such exotic flavours as matcha, chestnut, hazelnut, blueberry, beet, coconut milk, pineapple, tomato, oregano, melon, mint, and more. Many of these delicious drinks will be matched up with equally delectable pastries.

Sunday, January 21st

Today is the last day of the Kidsbooks Annual Sale (it starts on Thursday, January 18th) where all stock will be 20% off, plus loads of additional deals in-store. This sale only happens four times a year and offers a great opportunity to stock up on birthday gifts. Kidsbooks sells not only children’s books (from ages 0 to young adult) but they also have a wonderful selection of toys, craft kits, puzzles, and stationary.
