It all sounds just crazy enough to be fantastic-
If you haven’t been to Lincoln’s Gallery yet, go. there. now. Just what downtown needs, it is a mellow spot with creations from Reid Trevarthan, and, this month, longboards from Kevin Bay and Ken Hann of Selfless Creations. Located at 106/108 W. 9th St., the gallery fronts div., a clothing and design shop (which was closed when I was there, so sorry if I am a little uninformed about it). The place is owned by the men of Vancouver alt-folk band Lincoln’s Beard. The band plays on Frist Friday, so go check it out then. As for me, the minute I walked in, I just wanted to grab a coffee and hang out on the gallery’s couch for the afternoon. Try that. See how it goes.
Hi all. I’m Kris the web admin here. I’ve noticed that it may have been difficult to link to specific posts. This is because we have two domains–one domain is pointing to the other. I also had domain masking on but I have realized that it created linking challenges so now masking is off. My apologies for any inconvenience.
Please feel free to link away!
The Vancouver Food Co-op is celebrating the Fall Harvest on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Vancouver Marketplace on Columbia and Evergreen. The event will be catered by Woody’s Tacos, featuring appetizers and desserts made from ingredients grown by local farms (and you can bet when the VFC is doing it, that’s LOCAL farms, not the tri-state area).
The Co-op will be unveiling its new logo, designed by Vancouver’s Tribe2 Graphic Design and Creative Services, the same folks responsible for the Turtle Place mural, and talking about store opening plans. Bluegrass band The Grey Sky Boys will play.
The event is FREE, so don’t miss it. My only regret is posting this so late!
