Home Improvement as Comedic Fodder


Deck Evergreen Cultural Centre Coquitlam

We’re in the middle of home renovations at our house. Work on our kitchen is about 80% finished, and we’re expecting our ensuite remodelling to begin any day now. We’re up to our elbows in paint chips and design magazines, and we have our contractors on speed dial. This isn’t our first voyage into the […]



What’s Happening in the Tri Cities: Join the Carbon Cycle or Get Gifting


Christmas Port Moody Arts Centre 2013

Shhhhh! This week, there are artists in our midst – selling stuff and explaining what they do. Oooh – the mysteries of the creative mind – they have to tell you where to find the gold if you catch them … nope, that’s leprechauns. Anyway, if art’s not your bag, then try getting inside a […]

Behind the cool and classy street frontage is a peaceful haven away from the bustle of the city’s main thoroughfare. Parking is available on St. John’s Street but patrons wishing a […]



What’s Happening in the Tri Cities: Tap Them Toes for Charity


Darren Exley Crossroads Coffeehouse Port Coquitlam

Toe-tapping for entertainment and for fundraising this week in the Tri Cities. A quiet week at first glance, though I suspect the municipalities are just gearing up for a full-on festive season. Patience grasshopper – don’t forget the multi-vitamins, and think seriously about that flu shot. More events in The V3H Events Calendar. What: Morning […]
