The interactive theatre experience would make for a great date, perhaps preceded or followed by a meal or drink in the area.

Date Idea: Solve Crime with Vancouver Mysteries

Sourced from Vancouver Mysteries website

Sourced from Vancouver Mysteries’ website

It was a dark and stormy afternoon. My boyfriend (“S”) and I had just been assigned to a high priority murder mystery case in Gastown. It was our first major file, and we were curious to see how quickly we would be able to determine the guilty suspect. The case would require our skills of deduction, a willingness to do the unexpected, and above all, the ability to work together as a team. Would this romantic duo succeed at detective work?

I love solving puzzles and playing board games (Clue was always my favourite), so I was really excited when I learned about Vancouver Mysteries, the city’s first urban game company.

More than 100 bands are set to take over the streets of Vancouver’s Gastown neighbourhood for one wild night of music … and it’s all free.

Make Music Vancouver, the event that transforms city streets into an outdoor stage for literally hundreds of local bands, is back, Wednesday, June 24.  This year, Gastown’s Water Street will once again be blocked to traffic and serve as the setting for the free, crowd-sourced music festival.

This is the fifth instalment of Make Music Vancouver, which has its roots in La Fete de la Musique, an event launched in France in 1982.  That year, the Ministry of Culture urged thousands of amateur musicians to flood the streets of Paris on June 21 in celebration of the first day of summer. The spontaneous outpouring of musical talent was so overwhelming that the event later spread to other capitals. Today, it’s celebrated by hundreds of thousands of people in 450 cities worldwide on the same date. Continue reading:
