The Art of the Sailor
March 14-October 13
Vancouver Maritime Museum
If you have never found time or a good reason to visit the funky-looking building by MacMillan Space Centre, this exhibit is the perfect opportunity to do so. The Art of the Sailor is a great way to learn about the origins of body art, a widespread phenomenon that is increasingly socially acceptable in the Western world.
Whether it’s to learn about the history of tattoo art, or to look for a nautical piece different from the notorious swallows, this exhibit is a worthy stopover after a nice stroll on Kits Beach.
Video Game Burlesque: Reloaded
One of the overlooked perks of living in Metro Vancouver is the ability to attend a burlesque show nearly every day of the week. This particular one has the combination to please any crowd: hot girls and video games.
The beautiful VanDolls are putting on their second video games-themed burlesque show, promising sexy routines inspired by games like Angry Birds, Call of Duty and Pokemon.
If you are looking for an evening of entertainment sprinkled with sexual confusion (I guess Pikachu can be kinda sexy?), then look no further and snatch those tickets before they sell out.
World Ski and Snowboard Festival
Who says you have to wait until summer to kick off the outdoor festival season? Celebrate the last of the powder season with music, art, film, and, of course, your favourite winter sports in Whistler.
Those who do not ski or board themselves can watch the pros do it. With free events like the Shred Show and the World Skiing Invitational, there are many tricks to learn for both avid snow sport enthusiasts and newbies.
And for those who are no longer in the mood for winter sports, there are many intriguing non-sports events to choose from, like a silent disco or a swagger-themed fashion show.
