  • The Edge Social Grille & Lounge
    Conveniently located in the heart of Vancouver, The Edge is equal parts modern and comfortable, fine dining and casual. A lounge area with cozy, but almost futuristic-looking silver chairs and black loveseats serves as comfy spot for an after-work cocktail. The dining area, though, feels like a stark contrast, with its retro decor straight from the golden age of diners. But the globally inspired menu, unlike any phone that came out earlier this year, is definitely of this time, with ingredients sourced locally and served at dinner, lunch, and brunch. Dinner means an array of signature dishes like flatbreads and burgers or hearty entrees such as roasted chicken breast, pan-seared salmon, and pastas. For brunch, both breakfast and lunch are equally represented, with skillets and french toast as well as mac-and-cheese and crispy chicken burgers.

  • Kay Meek Centre
    Mrs. Kay Meek could be considered a visionary of the theatre arts. She wanted to create a place that inspired the community and brought it together before the stage. To that end, she financed the Kay Meek Centre, a cultural hub that blends classic touches into a uniquely modern venue. With blond wood, soft pink brick, and purple fabrics, the main theatre is timeless, with acoustics that enhance every musical performance and stagehand’s whispered wish to be famous. The studio theatre, on the other hand, provides a more intimate experience, with adjustable seating able to adapt to any show.

  • Vancouver Symphony Society
    Founded in 1919, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra enriches Vancouver with interpretations of classical and popular music at 13 performance venues. Music lovers get to hear the sonorous synchronization of the VSO's musicians and conductors throughout a diverse schedule of performances, including pops concerts and celebrations of Bach and Haydn. An army of woodwinds, strings, and brass joins forces with special guest musicians throughout May, including violinist Augustin Hadelich tackling Sibelius on May 1 and 2 and pianist Alessio Bax interpreting Mozart on May 7 and 9. Most shows take place at the VSO's home in the historic Orpheum Theatre, a former vaudeville house and designated National Heritage Site where many a prime minister got a start in ventriloquism.

  • The Charlatan
    The Charlatan's rich, mahogany ambience complements the smoky, mesquite flavours and applewood-scented entrees that make this local pub one to top the to-do list. Hearty menu items such as the house-pulled pork ($14) assuages whiny bellies, while the chicken pot pie ($13) and mom's meatloaf ($13) satisfy a deeply rooted down-home hunger pangs. Fifteen beers on tap, 12 wines by the glass, and a creative cocktail list cure a homesick soul in one sip, whereas drinking the 911 wing sauce is not recommended unless you've gone and frozen your teeth to the flagpole again.

  • Pacific Cinematheque Pacifique
    Pacific Cinémathèque has been bringing essential cinema to Vancouver for nearly four decades. With an emphasis on international films, art-house flicks, Canadian classics, and under-the-radar movies, Pacific Cinémathèque offers alluring alternatives to the kiss-kiss, bang-bang blitz of Hollywood, earning it honours from the Vancouver Sun as 2009’s best art house/foreign film theatre. Get a double-bill ticket ($11.50 for adults) and activate your celluloid goggles for consumption of two game-changing movie experiences in one night. Upcoming features include a one-two punch from decorated documentary filmmakers Albert and David Maysles, with Grey Gardens and Gimme Shelter chronicling ruinous recluses and rock-‘n’-roll rawness, respectively, while the Italian filmmaker Francesco Rosi’s works get top billing in a special retrospective running May 27–June 10. Other upcoming Pacific Cinémathèque films available on double bills include works by Japanese filmmaking legend Akira Kurosawa and the little-seen American cult comedy Casablanca. Wash down your viewing experience with a small popcorn ($3) and a small pop ($2.50) from the concession stand, both included in your Groupon.
