It’s time for one of the most sophisticated block parties of the year.

This Saturday (June 20) is the annual South Granville ArtWalk. If you’re on the hunt for that perfect piece to hang above your mantle or are just curious about the latest in Canadian and British Columbian art, come on down: everyone is welcome.

Just south of downtown over the Granville Street bridge, the South Granville neighbourhood is an area of high-end boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants. (The latter include the famed Vij’s restaurant, which is near the Stanley Theatre.)

Stretching over about 10 blocks, South Granville has the highest concentration of fine art galleries in Vancouver.

They feature a diverse range of art, including Canadian and international conceptual, European modernism and old masters, and photography. There are also two galleries devoted to First Nations and Inuit work.

‘Elements’ at West Restaurant: A New Way to Dine at One of Vancouver’s Top Restaurants

Three months ago, West Restaurant—the multiple-award winner of Vancouver Restaurant Magazine’s Restaurant of the Year Award and one of the indisputable leaders in Vancouver cuisine—made major changes to its interior and its menu. West redesigned its dining room, replacing its old-school, white-tablecloth formality with sleek, stylish stone table tops and warm, urban fixtures to better reflect its innovative, contemporary cuisine, and added a new menu to its famous a la carte and Tasting Menu options: the tapas/izakaya-style Elements.

With Elements, West Restaurant provides a new way to enjoy its phenomenal food at a lower price point than its traditional a la carte fare. From the Elements menu, diners can choose from a range of exceptional-yet-reasonably-priced items, like the Crispy Stuffed Mussels for $2.50 each or the tender, melt-in-your-mouth Fraser Valley Pork Belly for $12, and then share the food, family-style, so that everyone in your party gets to try each of the dishes.
