The return of last year’s sensation Hot Brown Honey!

Hot Brown Honey returns to Vancouver from Mar 15 –  30. The cabaret of politics, dance, poetry, comedy, circus, striptease, and song was a smash hit when it played the York Theatre last year, and it’s coming back to the Commercial Drive venue for another run.

Reviewing the show last year for the Vancouver Sun, Jerry Wasserman wrote: “It’s an immensely clever and entertaining show that blatantly sugar-coats, or rather honey-coats, its serious political message. Fighting the power, the Honeys promise, never tasted so sweet.” Find out more below.

Top 5 Offbeat Events at Dine Out Vancouver Fest, Jan 18-Feb 3

It’s almost Dine Out Fest time again in Vancouver.  From Jan. 18-Feb. 3, hundreds of the city’s top restaurants will be serving up three-course, prix fixe menus at bargain prices of $18, $28 or $38.

But for the 11th installment of the restaurant festival, Dine Out has also added dozens of culinary themed events.  Some may be familiar from past years, including Street Food City and the moveable feast which is Secret Supper Soiree.  But there are also plenty of new and unique events in this year’s lineup.

Here’s a preview of five of the more offbeat offerings at this year’s Dine Out.  Tickets are on sale now and the best events have a tendency to sell out fast.

Cabaret Evening at Electric Owl: Part gastropub, part live music mecca, Electric Owl is one of Main Street’s hippest venues.  This event pairs a three-course, Japanese-inspired meal at the Owl with a performance by the acclaimed Lovers Cabaret.  The all-female cast combines burlesque, contemporary and jazz dance to evoke a bygone era of stadium rock stars.  Jan. 27; $38.

Dinner at the Birdcage: The 1996 cult comedy Birdcage centres on a gay cabaret owner and his drag queen companion.  For Dine Out, Vancouver’s own music venue FanClub on Granville Street is transformed into a cabaret of its own for one night.  Over a three-course dinner, enjoy a stellar show starring the city’s celebrity drag queens. Jan. 31; $30 ($50 with dinner).  Continue reading:
