Studios open for business.

The Eastside Culture Crawl returns this year from November 15 to 17. Here are three studios well worth a visit.

Culture

More Mo.

Shea Emry of the Toronto Argonauts dedicates a lot of his time and energy on not only the Movember movement, but men’s health issues in a broader sense as well.

Arts

Wild at heart.

Ron Gruber’s carved birds have a presence, a gravitas, and those who have collected his work over the years get a daily satisfaction from his art.

Dining

Chef's recipe.

This recipe is the ticket to braising your protein of choice—beef short ribs, blade steak, veal cheeks or shin, lamb shoulder or shanks, duck or chicken legs, country-style pork ribs or shoulder butt—you get the idea.

Eastside Culture Crawl preview.

Vancouver’s Eastside Culture Crawl returns November 20–23 this year, during which artists open their studios to the public over the course of the four-day festival. One participating artist is Anyuta Gusakova.

Arts

Coming of age.

It’s a little bit funny, but coming of age has a certain timelessness to it. That formative passage from child’s play into maturity, usually marked by the confluence of tragedy and love, speaks across seasons and generations, and maybe it’s as simple as the fact that we all know it.

Style

Outdoor living.

With such a diverse backyard, Vancouverites are set with activities all year round. A welcome addition to the city is Fjällräven, a Swedish label that has been outfitting trekkers with timeless, functional, and durable apparel and equipment for over 50 years.

Dining

One for the ages.

The Macallan has been working with Tevasa Cooperage—the only company in Spain that transforms tree to finished, seasoned, cask entirely in-house—for almost 30 years now.

Culture

Lessons remembered.

When TEDxVancouver was held last month, the event brought 2,500 passionate Vancouverites together for a day, who were asked to shift their thinking, even if just in the hours that followed. One talk has left us particularly inspired, even weeks later.

Design

Light touch.

Lukas Peet’s designs are graphic as images, but they invite interaction that goes beyond the primary application of simply lighting a space. They’re tactile.
