What On Weekend – year end 2011

With Christmas upon us, most people will be spending time with family and friends. However next weekend is the weekend we should be planning now…if you haven’t already.
Let’s take a look at what’s happening around town for the festive party season!

Ongoing Festive Festivities:
– ongoing, through the Holidays are a number of festive fun activities including Vancouver Christmas Market, The Peak of Christmas at Grouse Mountain, Capilano Suspension Bridge’s Canyon Lights, VanDusen Festival of Lights, Bloedel Conservatory Jewel Box of Light, Heritage Christmas at Burnaby Village Museum and Bright Nights in Stanley Park
– Arts Club Theatre Company’s has three productions running: White Christmas at The Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage, Blood Brothers at Granville Island Stage and The Patron Saint of Stanley Park on at the Revue Stage.
– Vancouver Playhouse has La Cage aux Folles at the Mainstage

– for those who don’t want the hassle of cooking Christmas dinner but still want a great meal with the family can check out the option of a take out Turkey-to-go meal from some of our great hotels & caterers most of the order deadlines have past but there’s still one day to order from Sutton Place Hotel for a Turkey Express To-Go Meal.
– if you don’t even want to do the dishes head out on the town for a festive feast: The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, The Fairmont Waterfront, The Fairmont Vancouver Airport and Fairmont Pacific Rim are all offering festive menus and features. As well Sutton Place Hotel Vancouver, Pan Pacific Hotel, Rosewood Hotel Georgia, Metropolitan Vancouver and Yew @ Four Seasons Vancouver are all offering special Christmas and New Year events/dinners
– After you’ve fill up on food and listened to the Queen’s Speech  head to Junction Pub for Christmas with the Queens – some drag, drink and presumably a few drunks but mostly some fun!
– if you were a good girl or boy you may have found tickets for the Avicii show at Vancouver Convention Centre, that’s the only way you’re going to get there as it’s sold out!

– it’s the night to get on your glad rags and party until the wee hours…as if we need an excuse…as we welcome in 2012.
