The music continues all year with the Vancouver Jazz Festival and much more from spring to summer and into fall and winter.

The 2016 ski season is shaping up to be one to remember in Vancouver, with great snowfall on the local mountains. Now, there’s a way to enjoy all the snow on the cheap, and support a great cause.

Every Monday night from Jan. 25-March 28, ladies can ski for a donation of just $10 at Mount Seymour in North Vancouver as part of the Shred for a Cause event. The yearly tradition, now in its ninth year, has raised more than $150,000 for charity … and contributed to countless memorable nights on the slopes.

This year, Mount Seymour has upped the price of admission for ladies ever so slightly, from a minimum donation of $5 to $10, half of which goes to charity. Still, that’s an absolute steal considering that guys have to pay the full evening lift ticket price of $31. Just pay at guest services (no special vouchers needed this year) and enjoy unlimited night skiing from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Continue reading:

What’s better than birthday cake? How about a free 7-Eleven Slurpee!?

On Saturday, July 11, 2015, Vancouver 7-Eleven convenience stores will be giving away free Slurpee drinks between 11:00am and 7:00pm to celebrate their 46th birthday in Canada.

This highly-anticipated tradition is one of Canada’s largest giveaways with nearly 3/4 million Canadians getting the chance to experience brain freeze with a flavour of their choice on July 11th. I think we can safely call this Canada’s coolest birthday party.
