Vancouver Events We Recommend This Week
Currently nestled in the Naramata Bench, we are enjoying our stay at Quidni Estate Winery and are very reluctant to leave! We’ve had some great food here and tasted some amazing wine and beer, so stay tuned for a Penticton/Naramata travel edition. We’ll be up in Kelowna for the next little while arranging our wedding (3 more sleeps), but if we were in Vancouver, there’d be a few things we’d check out.

Vancouver TheatreSports™ League’s (VTSL) presents Western World
We’ve seen this and it’s absolutely hilarious! Head to the Improv Centre on Granville Island and check out Western World, inspired by the HBO series Westworld.
Each night features a totally new ‘episode’ under the watchful eye and guiding mind of Robert (sometimes Roberta) Ford. Guests begin their Western World adventure with an orientation. “Who are these hosts? Where do they come from? What roles do they play? Where is Western World?” are typical of the many questions that only VTSL’s esteemed Guests can answer. Throughout the first half, Guests help craft the story-line that becomes the basis for the second half of the show. In this artificial world of improvised comedy anything can, and will, happen.
Join VTSL for an evening of ‘laughs without limits’ Thursday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm from April 6 through May 13 at VTSL’s home, The Improv Centre on Granville Island. Tickets on sale now.
