Story Story Lie Will Be Hot and Heavy At The Rio Theatre January 9th

2 Jan

story-story-lie_posters_2019_januaryStory Story Lie kicks off the New Year with Hot And Heavy at The Rio Theatre January 9th.   If you are not familiar with the premise of Story Story Lie, it is an interactive show where some of Vancouver’s best entertainers share intimate, funny and often embarrassing stories about themselves. One of them is lying and telling you a tall tale. But which one?  The audience gets to take part in the interrogation to reveal who the liar is. And the first audience member to guess the liar, wins the grand prize as well as bragging rights. The upcoming show on January 9th promises to be scandalous with unbelievable stories by a burlesque dance, a rather handsome actor, a comedian and improvisor. The line up includes:

★ Tristan Risk ( Caravan of Curiosities)
★ Cory Thibert (Awkward Hug)
★ Shirley Gnome (604 Records)
★ Claire Pollock (The Dirty Betty Show)
★ Montana Roselle (Dyck Spacee)
★ Anjie Mittelholtz (Stand up comedian)

Start your year off with lots of laughs and if you are the one that can spot the liar, you have the opportunity to win a tantalizing toy from local business, Womyn’s Ware. Tickets are available in advance online at Rio Theatre for $10 online or $12 at the door. Doors open at 6:30 pm and fun gets under way at 7:00 pm. Warning for those that have never been, the show WILL contain strong language, somewhat mature and immature subject matter.

New In Town: Your Open Closet On Commercial Drive

21 Nov

We stopped in to check out a brand new store located at 902 Commercial Drive called Your Open Closet.  The store may be new, but the owners are not new to business, as they also own Womyns’ Ware just down the street.  We learnt that customers were coming into Womyns’ Ware looking for undergarments which they didn’t have, so this new business was born.  Having said that, Your Open Closet is not your everyday lingerie store.  Although they do carry panties, lingerie, boxers, stockings, socks, bras and the like, something does set them apart. Your Open Closet has created a body positive space for their customers of all genders and orientation with an emphasis on zero judgment.   There are no harsh bright lights in store, they have some very cool subdued lighting. If you are paying attention when you walk in, you will see a case of records off to the side and a record player which is their sound system. The undergarments chosen have a local and Canadian focus which we always love to see.  This is a great space, perfect for the upcoming shopping this holiday season. Your Open Closet has only been open 3 weeks as of this writing and if they don’t have what you are looking for, let them know.  They are open to suggestions as to what you’d like to see in store. Stop by and check out this new space located at the corner of Venables & Commercial Drive.
