Santaland Diaries: True confessions of an Elf  (Evi’s Pick)

Now-Dec 29 |Check Showtimes | Revue Stage 1601 Johnston St | From $25

From the popular humourist David Sedaris, comes this merrily wicked tale of his tour of duty as an elf at Macy’s Santaland. From posts as Vomit Corner Elf to Water Cooler Elf to Cash Register Elf, Sedaris works his way up the candy-cane ladder and lives to share his hysterical, behind-the-scenes anecdotes. Both outlandish and illuminating, this sardonic comedy is a holiday treat for adults.

2012 HiVE Winter Party - Awkward Family Reunion (Kelly’s Pick)

Dec 7 | 7 PM | Hive Vancouver | $10 donation or potluck item

Our friends at the HiVE are throwing a party! The theme is AWKWARD FAMILY REUNION to celebrate their friends, who feel like family members. So dress as the hot cousin, the grumpy uncle, the loud aunt, the goth brother and be ready for some great music, a photobooth, a libations (cashbar), a Mystery Gift Box Silent Auction, HiVE Member Awards, and more! Please bring some food for the potluck (to feed 10-12 people) or $10 to help cover costs.

Art for Impact : OU(X)PO (Evi’s PIck)  

Dec 8  | 7:30PM  | Russian Hall  |  $20

Ou(x)po, exploring the possibilities found within creative constraints... All proceeds are going to Instruments of Change and their Women Rock! program, a 12-week project for women in the BC prison system to gain self-empowerment through learning to play rock instruments, forming bands, managing gear and writing songs.

Ou(x)po invites guests to roam the building and enjoy the many pieces (ranging from classical music and dance to shadow puppetry, clown, film and beyond), all going on in unconventional locations. There will be drinks available for purchase, and this year we're featuring an afterparty (10pm-midnight) featuring the awesome band Miss You in Tuques, and a raffle draw.
