What's hot in Vancouver this week?

Experience Greece at Greek Food Festival Days

Food, dancing and tackling problems in Vancouver is what we're bringing to you this week. Be a solver, a partier or a foodie, or all three and hit up every event. The bees believe in a healthy balance and we hope you do! We'll be buzzing around town all week so flag us down, we love to meet new people.

Speaking of food, our bee Kelly was at Toast to the Coast, an evening of fine wine and sustainable seafood. Check out her recap.

Greek Food Festival

I've never been to Greece so events like these give me a taste of what's to come - literally and figuratively. Come down to the Greek Food Festival and enjoy some tasty Grecian treats while being entertained by some talented dancers. Our new bee Evi will be dancing at 5:30 on Saturday!

Come explore these queries in a fun, engaging  atmosphere with the Vancouver Design Nerds. Bring a friend, potluck food, an open mind, and of course – ideas.
