Yarrr… International “talk like a pirate day” isn’t until September 19th (seriously), but you can feel like a pirate on Wednesday, August 14, 2019, for White Spot Restaurant’s annual ‘Adult Pirate Pak’ day!

This annual event not only gives you the chance to feel young again by eating out of a paper pirate ship, but it is also an excuse to give back to an amazing cause.

For the uninitiated, the Pirate Pak is a classic children’s order from White Spot that features a hamburger (or another dinner item) placed in a fancy cardboard pirate ship. Sounds silly? You’ve obviously never enjoyed the thrill of finding pirate treasure (i.e. a gold chocolate coin) in the hull of a cardboard ship!

The Vancouver screen scene is in a perpetual state of flux, where everything is constantly coming and going.

And for more details about all of this, see you after the jump.

Where has the summer gone!? It seems like June just passed us by, but somehow we find ourselves in the middle of August. Have you been taking advantage of these sunny, hot days of summer?

The big finale of summer in Vancouver comes in the form of the Fair at the PNE, a summer tradition since 1910.

Highlights of this year’s Fair include the “hypnotizingly” amazing Reveen, an immersive “selfie photo” experience, a new star-studded lineup for the Summer Night Concerts series and the medieval-style Knights of Valour jousting show.

But, we all know what’s really the most important part of the PNE: the food! Along with the classic favourites of corn dogs, blooming onions, and everything you can possibly think of deep-fried, there’s some… interesting things… on the menu for PNE 2019!

Check out the list below:
