PIT Collective at Performance Works - July 8th to 17th, 2017

Vancouver, BC: Set in Los Angeles in the late 1940s this musical blends the technicolor, real world story of Stine (Donal Thomas-Cappello), author of detective novel City of Angels, and the film noir world of Stine’s screenplay which he is adapting from his book. The project is in the over-controlling hands of Hollywood producer - director Buddy Fidler (Paul Herbert) who, aided...

Sablefish

I love eating the grilled fish from the fresh fish sheet at Sandbar so it is crazy that the memory that sticks with me from our Mothers' Day dinner was not the perfectly cooked Alderwood-grilled, miso-marinated Sablefish, but the potatoes that I got as a substitute for the regular rice accompaniment. The sablefish was delicious but it was the texture and smoothness of the potatoes that kept me having just one more bite, till - so much for my carb-restricted eating plan - my plate was empty.

 Fringe Festival Part III. Reviews by GL and ARL.

In an interesting convergence of programming, there were common threads running through the three plays we saw in sequence at Studio 16 relating to ideas of recurring nightmares and to life moving off course. What we think our life will be and the way it actually plays out causes many of us anxiety.  What happens when the path we thought we were on diverges from our reality? In many ways, these three plays work to answer that question, although that's where the similarity of content ends.

Vancouver, BC: Scary as I find the thought of being on stage with lines that I am supposed to have memorized, the thought of having to be spontaneous and improvise on the spot is even scarier....

The downtown area limits for our walk

The challenge: two friends visiting Vancouver, one in June, one in August.  One staying two nights with me in Yaletown. One here for a conference and staying at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle downtown hotel on West Hastings Street.

Both wanted to get a feel for what downtown living is like in Vancouver. Both had two days to experience the city. And I wanted to show them that Vancouver  has some of the best dining, anywhere. What to do?

The possibilities were so many...
