What’s Happening in the Tri Cities: Light Up, Chill Out and Deck the DIY

Glass Tiger Red Robinson Theatre Coquitlam

Music music music all the way this week, with either CanCon rock idols, sweet Persian rhymes or the close-at-hand Land of Deborah for your aural pleasures. This week is also a moment to pause before the headiness of seasonal prep catches up – my suggestions? a doll workshop to get in touch with your creative side, or Deck to obliterate memories of your significant other’s artistic domesticity.
