    Summer is the best, everyday 4-6 live patio music upstairs at their cafe. Sunday all day. Champagne, music, sunshine, bask it it.

    The steps, the restaurant, or even as you peruse the art, the Vancouver Art Gallery is a great place to unwind and catch up on the news

    It's it to try and come out to the FUSE events! It's a good deal to see the exhibits, and they have many cool outdoor installations as well.

    Take in an exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery, followed by drinks at the charming Gallery Café. The Café’s desserts are divine and the atmosphere is seemingly European.

    Fuse nights are really fun. Although buy the tickets in advance if you because the line gets really long.

    At $24 for adult admission, the most expensive art gallery I know. But they have great shows, often focusing on local talent. No permanent collection on display.

    At $24 his may be the most expensive art museum on the planet, but the shows are often great and Tuesday evenings are "pay what you wish."

    The best place downtown for a sunny, healthy, well-priced lunch! But make sure to go early or late as it fills to capacity at noon!

    Go on Tuesdays for entry by donation. There's a bit of a line and once you're inside it's busy but not super crowded.

    Stand in front of a fire extinguisher, thoughtfully stroking your chin. Mumble something about Hyperrealism every time someone walks by.
