The Diamond's rookie bartender seminars help avid amateur cocktailers and home bartenders improve their drink-slinging technique to impress friends, family, and house-bar flies alike. Courses are taught by award-winning bartenders and will include an initial demonstration of six artfully constructed cocktails, followed by a student-tasting of the samples. Once students have swilled the lovely libations, they'll be expertly guided in constructing their choice of two of the demonstrated cocktails. Classes are typically centred on a rotating theme and include such sessions as whiskey cocktails, classics, gin cocktails, and vodka drinks, among others.

Chefs pile plates with hearty diner fare ranging from all-day breakfast platters and simple sandwiches to ribs, meatloaf, and pot pies. Kitchen scholars helm cooking classes focused on grassroots food preparation and tactical food-fight strategies in butchering and canning.

Running for three weeks every January and February, the PuSh Festival brings more than 100 performances and events to Vancouver and showcases new and innovative theatrical pieces. Performed by award-winning Mexican touring ensemble Teatro Linea de Sombra, Amarillo weaves a mesmerizing tale of a lost man travelling between Mexico and Amarillo, Texas. The performance makes use of multimedia imagery to add dimension and keep audiences from becoming distracted by neighbouring gum chewers or compulsive aria singers. The Idiot, one of Vancouver magazine's entertainment picks, presents Fyodor Dostoyevsky's acclaimed novel in a musical format, produced by Neworld Theatre and Vancouver Moving Theatre. The play tells the story of the preternaturally good-willed Prince Myshkin and the chaos he unleashes on the circles of Russian society. Performed on a slowly rotating stage, El pasado es un animal grotesco —Spanish for "the past is a grotesque animal"—follows the lives of four young Argentineans. Taking place across a ten-year span, the show demonstrates how the characters enter adulthood while dealing with both their country's economic crisis and the need to crisply project everything they say.

For their first Canadian tour in more than 20 years, Roxette explodes on the stage like a shaken soda, saturating their fans with decades of pop classics. Playful, zesty, and brimming with infectious hooks, the gregarious Swedish duo first made an international stir with haymakers such as “The Look,” “Joyride,” and “It Must Have Been Love,” featured in the film Pretty Woman. With 70 million records sold throughout its career and a fanbase that could take down ABBA's army, the band keeps moving in support of its latest album Travelling. Assembled from songs spawned in soundchecks, concerts, and hotel rooms, Travelling captures Roxette’s live spirit with tracks such as "Easy Way Out." Joining Roxette’s quest to transform dance floors into trampolines, Grammy-winning Canadian pop-rockers Glass Tiger spout out hits such as “Don’t Forget Me When I’m Gone” other pop classics from their album Thin Red Line.

As half of “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” duo Brooks & Dunn, Ronnie Dunn has played everywhere from the arena to the rodeo, beer joints to casinos. His Texas twang and electric guitar chronicle 20 years of wide-ranging exploits on his self-titled debut solo album. After he and Kix Brooks played their last show together in 2010, Dunn set to work as the new album's sole producer and main songwriter. "This time around, I baked it,” he said. “I baked it and cooked it, and cooked it again.” His signature rowdy honky-tonk kicks through in the single “Let the Cowboy Rock,” and the poignant ballad of forgiveness, “Bleed Red," urges listeners to “turn the anger into water / let it slip through our hands.”
