Good news, slowpokes; there are still tickets left for The Nutcracker. The Royal Winnipeg Ballet production, co-presented with Ballet BC, is in town for five performances, from Dec. 8-11 (matinee only on the 11th) at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre (650 Hamilton St.).

For many dance fans, and folks who just plain love a Christmas-y spectacle, RWB’s Nutcracker is a holiday tradition. Besides the Tchaikovsky score, the beautiful dancing and gorgeous costumes, the ballet had been Canadian-ized to include a snowy pond hockey game and a battle on Parliament Hill.

Another one of the great things about Vancouver’s food scene is the quality of vegetarian and vegan dining choices out there. Dishes at these establishments are inventive, often showcase local and/or organic ingredients, and, frankly, are delicious for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

Well-known vegetarian restaurants include long-running The Naam (2724 West 4th Avenue) for its popular stir-fried Buddha’s Feast and various Dragon Bowls; Zend Conscious Lounge (1130 Mainland Street), which specializes in organic, gluten-free, nutritionally dense cuisine; and The Acorn (3995 Main Street), which has become one of Vancouver’s top, award-winning dining establishments. The restaurant offers creative and lip smacking dishes that highlight fresh, local produce. For example, their beer battered halloumi with a zucchini and potato pancake, smashed peas, mint yogurt, and lemon balm is a playful veggie rendition of English fish ‘n’ chips.
