The craft distilling movement has exploded in British Columbia and Vancouver boasts some of the best local artisans creating award winning spirits. We visit three distilleries where we sample various handcrafted spirits such as vodka, gin, brandy, cassis and more. We also get a private tour of two of the distilling facilities and learn from the distillers themselves how they create such boozy masterpieces. A great tour to learn more about how distilling is done, sample a variety of spirits, and pick up a bottle for later!

7 IMPORTANT THINGS
(STO Union, Canada)
“A fine theatre jewel, no more and no less than a biography put to stage.”
George Acheson was a rebel with a cause. He lived the ’60s counterculture, embraced the ’70s Punk movement, and somehow scraped through the years of reaction that followed. Now, together with collaborator Nadia Ross, he’s going to tell you his story. Like many boomers, Acheson looked at his parents’ values and found them wanting. This isn’t a hopeless story, although it’s a sad one. It’s about things worth fighting for, and things worth fighting against. 7 Important Things is a raw, vital performance.
STO Union was founded in 1992 by Nadia Ross. It’s a production company that creates original collaborative work using video, performance art and innovative dramaturgy. From Australia to Austria and all across Canada, STO Union has presented challenging, radical works.
Includes 3 course meal, tax, gratuity, and 1 ticket to the performance of 7 Important Things at Goldcorp Centre for the Arts on January 29 @ 8pm.Buy Tickets
