Blooming tea will be one of the many varieties of tea featured at the 3rd annual Vancouver Tea Festival taking place on November 5.

Getting to know the communi-tea

Let me preface this by saying that, all things considered, the third annual Vancouver Tea Festival was an educational, and fun time. With a packed schedule of tea tastings, a companion schedule for workshops that educated the average festival-goer on the tea-making process, and the differences in plants and regions, I can confidently say that […]

URP's production of Rent was filled with wonderful casting, including Ali Watson as Mimi.

URP’s production of Rent hit all the right notes

The 20th anniversary production of Rent by URP wrapped its last show on November 20, and I’m not alone in wishing it would stick around for longer. I already wish I could see it again. Upon entering the theatre, the stage was set elaborately, shifting from brick walls, to dingy apartment, to poster-covered walls on […]

Follow The Peak on Spotify to stay up to date on New Music Friday. “Setting Fires” – The Chainsmokers feat. XYLØ Jessica Whitesel: Bless the Chainsmokers for going beyond “#Selfie,” but damn them for making basically the same song over, and over, and over. It’s a little much now. Maybe one day I’ll rank all […]

The Gaffneys (Galifianakis and Fisher, centre) put their boring lives aside to keep up with the Joneses (Hamm left, Gadot right).

Do you have what it takes to be Keeping up with the Joneses?

Keeping Up with the Joneses stars Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher as the most stereotypical, boring married couple on the planet (the Gaffneys), and Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot as the Joneses. The Joneses are gorgeous, sophisticated, multi-talented, awe-inspiring people — and they’re spies. I fully admit that I wasn’t expecting much as I hunkered […]
