Being offline most of the weekend was a delight as we traveled out to Chilliwack on Friday then I made my way down the I-5 for most of yesterday. This week is a big one, with several festivals and events taking place so here’s a quick link fest roundup.
CBC’s Bob Cole is a stand-up guy who is now blogging about other classy gents that have graced the sport of hockey
Skittles is the talk of the web this morning with their new website that goes beyond browser barriers. The “friends” section just takes you to Facebook and the “chatter” section links directly to a search for “skittles” on Twitter
Next weekend we change our clocks to spring ahead for daylight savings
The Hollow Tree will be upright once again this summer
The Canada Line will open in August 2009
As I observed at Northern Voice, yarn and knitting are taking this town by storm although the comments on this particular Vancouver Sun article are rather mixed
I have a big post about theatre productions in Vancouver that is long overdue but here are a few that may be worth checking out in the meantime: The Real Thing, The Threepenny Opera, Munsch Alley, and Johnny Grant: A Rollicking Adventure Story
The Wine Fair and Wine 101 are taking place Tuesday and Wednesday and I announced my winner of the Wine Fair contest this weekend
The Midforms Festival kicks off at the end of this week
Wednesday March 4th the Women in Film Festival begins with a day of panels, an opening night screening and social media sessions with some familiar hosts.
On Saturday March 7th I’ll return with the bloggers to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre to capture their experiences for Rigoletto
I’d also love to get Twitter responses embedded in the bottom of my posts, near the comments, however none of the plugins I have tried have been ideal (ie. Tweetbacks won’t allow me to place the discussion box anywhere on my site). If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears.
