The City is hopping as high winds gust through what’s left of the leaves on the oak-lined streets. Even though I’m currently sitting in the Marriott in Zurich overlooking the Limmat River I’m missing out on a lot back home. Luckily, I have saved up a big stack of emails so I can unleash this hefty month-end Link Fest.

  • Reminder, the National Yoga Challenge is this weekend at the Richmond Olympic Oval.
  • TEDx Vancouver takes place this Saturday.
  • Twitter and Facebook told me there’s a flash mob happening on Saturday as well regarding the BC arts cuts, Meetup at noon on the nose over on Granville between Robson and Georgia.
  • Apparently the “Real Santa” arrived last Friday already at Richmond Centre.
  • In honor of the film Ninja Assassin, bloggers and Tweeters are encourage to come out to play some laser tag at Planet Laser in Richmond starting at noon on Saturday. Test your ninja skills (with lasers) and the Top 3 winners from each game will receive an exclusive movie prize package with passes to the advance screening and other promotional items.
  • Fabiola Carletti is inviting you to her birthday party this weekend at Science World (grown ups only, cash bar).
  • Hearth Therapy is an art show in the Downtown Eastside that is kicking off this weekend as a party of the Eastside Cultural Crawl. It will feature Pamela Masik’s work, “Uncovering Vision: A Discovery of Art Forms by Men and Women on the Downtown East Side” at Maurice McElrea Place (361 Heatley Ave). The showcase will run from November 20th & 21st (4:00pm – 10:00pm) until Sunday (11:00am – 6:00pm).
  • Heading into the first week of December, CBC Radio Food Bank Day is December 4th.
  • And head out to LaFarge Lake in Coquitlam on December 6th for the Light the Lake Festival.

    Finally, Make It Vancouver (@MakeItShow) kicks off again tomorrow at the Croatian Cultural Centre. This multi-day event showcases some of the best fashion, designs, artsy, crafty, and hand-made items you’ll find in town.

    They have offered up a special promotion so if you are one of the first 20 people to walk through the door and let them know you heard about the event through this site, your admission fee is covered. That’s it. Just say you read about Make It Vancouver on Miss604.com and you’re in.

    What if you’re not within the first 20? What if you want to bring a friend? Easy, just click here, print the 2 for 1 ticket, bring it on in and you’re all set. There, now there’s no reason to miss this season’s Make It Vancouver event.

    I’ll see you back in Vancouver next week and in the meantime if you have an event you would like to promote in some way through Miss604.com, please feel free to contact me.
