Top ten coolest things to do in Vancouver this weekend

It is time to realise your business dreams - or at least weekend plans. The Bees have got it all covered.

Fun alert! Here is your new weekly partytime guideline, again delivered by yours truly Bees team. This week we want you to rethink your (probably too high of a) rent, finally open the business of your dreams, dance the night away with Cuban salsa (Iva who just returned from the non-resort part of Cuba surely will!), or discover the historic path of sexuality in your favorite rainy city. Deal of the week: get half off at Food Talks Vol 6 if you email us!

And don’t forget: we’re looking for a social media Bee so if you like buzzing around Twitter and Facebook, give us a shout!

This is the first public event: an evening of film, discussion and solution-building, alongside a special guest from City Hall.
