Free events that don't suck!
Wednesday, September 29th through Monday, October 11th:
Army & Navy "Coat and Boot Event"
I have it on good shoe-lover authority (thanks, Farrah!) that this is a sale not to be missed! Great winter season coats for very reasonable prices and a fantastic selection of cheap fall and winter boots. Doors open at 9:30am on Wednesday, September 29th ('til 6pm; Thurs and Fri 'til 9pm). The rainy season is beginning - get your Wellies while you can for legendarily low prices! Army and Navy Vancouver
NOW 'til Friday, October 15th
Free Admission to Body Worlds at the Telus World of Science with Hospital ID badge
Thank you to Jenn for this tip and for Steph for finding the link: http://www.scienceworld.ca/pdf/bodyworlds/PAS_BW3_Healthcare.pdf ! Apparently Vancouver hospital staff (and hopefully that's not limited to VGH staff only!) receive free entry into this popular anatomical exhibit. Haven't been able to confirm, but call ahead if you are interested. Great for us graduate students working in the hospital setting!
Thursday, October 21st to Sunday, October 24th
The Vancouver Public Library (VPL) Booksale
See my earlier post on this event - thanks Laura for this tip (and congrats on baby Allie, too!). A great opportunity to stock up on reading material (and to save trees by buying used!).
Every Tuesday evening 5pm - 9pm (except October 5th)
Admission by Donation to the Vancouver Art Gallery (sponsored by Sun Life Financial)
Tip: the food at the gallery cafe is quite good and I have it on good authority that they serve the cheapest martinis in town (that are still worth drinking!). Thanks Alexis for the martini tip! Visit the VAG - when was the last time you indulged your artistic side? And think of the jokes - what an acronym!
