|If you were to create a Venn diagram where one circle was labeled “cheap” and the other labeled “awesome”, the middle point where they cross over could be labeled “Vancouver on the Cheap”. In other words, this is a weekly series on things to do and places to go in Vancouver that fall into that magical category of being both cheap and awesome.
Got a cheap-living tip you’d like to share? Send it in!
I’ve featured Xua Xua Productions‘ Show and Tell before, and I’m featuring it again, because it’s an awesome event and it is still incredibly cheap. Next Tuesday, May 14th – doors are at 7:30pm and the show begins at 8pm sharp, is another round of show and tell for grown ups.
Vancouver gets a bad rap sometimes for being an unfriendly city. We know deep down that’s not the case – we care about each other and what’s going on in our lives, and its events like this that highlight that fact. Friends and strangers gather to share a little piece of their story, to ask each other questions, and get to know each other more in a positive way. It’s super friendly, super laid-back, and a lot of fun.
It’s also CHEAP because entry is by donation and you can get drinks for only $4. This event is held in a super-cozy chocolate shop (Cocoanymph), and so audiences are very small. Pre-registration is a definite must (do it here). They accept donations as little as $1 to register for a ticket, so really, this is a community event for everyone.
PS: In other Cheap News this weekend, the Firehall Arts Centre is hosting its annual event, BC Buds, a by-donation weekend festival of boundary-pushing theatre. And don’t forget about the Eastside Flea tomorrow!
