Because Vancouver is the insular kind of town where something that fascinates you might be going on down the block without your ever knowing, when you find an aspect of secret wholesome fun poking up it can be worth your while to subscribe to its mailing list, especially if it’s likely to report on similar events of whimsical bounty—Vancouver has for instance a pretty good track record on flash mobs.
While promoting events I help to run (doing my bit to help make Vancouver more interesting) I do what I can to help spread the word about other esoteric happenings I find out about from various sources, generally reposting a digest of sorts once a month over at http://community.livejournal.com/vancouverarts/
Someone wrote in to thank me for turning them on to the 2nd annual Noise Pancake Breakfast. Do they plan on going? No—but it makes them glad to know that it just exists. I don’t mean to specifically plug my listings; the backs of newspapers and even laundromat bulletin boards and the sides of streetlamps often yield access to secret wholesome fun you might otherwise stumble onward totally unaware of. Keep your eyes open and you just might uncover something worth reporting back here.
