The events have taken me in as one of their own and now they fancy me as their spokesperson. I guess that’s okay. Here’s another list of events yet to come!


Ghost Train

Location: Stanley Park, Vancouver

Time: Monday to Thursday, 5:30 to 9:30 pm, Friday to Sunday, 5:30 to 10 pm

Have you ever wondered what Alice must’ve gone through when she fell into the rabbit hole? Well, now you can find out! The Ghost Train tour at Stanley Park is back again!

Location: Vogue Theatre, 918 Granville Street, Vancouver

Time: 7 pm

Price: $19.99 to $49.50 per ticket


JUNO winner Matt Mays plays at Vogue for his Howl at The Night Tour. A fitting theme for both the artist and the season. Mays himself says the night will be “A journey through songs, old and new, an evening that will start off woody and mellow and finish electric and stormy. Without a doubt, it’ll leave everyone in the house howling at the night!”


The Bomb Shelter Amateur Night

Location: Keto Caveman Cafe, 605 West Pender Street, Vancouver

Do you think you’re funny? If you do—and even if you don’t—come on down to the Keto Caveman Cafe, where a handful of the best and worse amateur comedians try to make you laugh. The Bomb Shelter Amateur Night happens every Thursday, but the open mic for anyone to try stand-up is only on the last Thursday of the month—which is October 24.

The humble halls of New West’s favourite comedy club, Lafflines, host some of the best improv comedians in BC! This improv show is inspired by the audience’s secrets—each ticket holder is asked to anonymously reveal one to watch the show. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
