Hello Vancouver! is moving to a new location on Wednesday, Feb. 22: Warehouse ’23, right on the Columbia River at 100 Columbia St. The location may be new, but your host is the same (but not old) Temple Lentz that we’ve grown to know and love over the past few years, as well as the team from High Five Media. The doors will open at 6 p.m. and admission is still free (can you believe it?), although you can guarantee your seat by RSVPing online at EventBrite. (Plus, if you book your seat online, you’ll get a free Hello Vancouver sticker. Sah-WEET!)
Hello Vancouver’s featured guest is Hannah Lloyd from the TV series “Grimm,” which is filmed, as you undoubtedly already know, in Portland. Lloyd is a Vancouver local who plays the role of Diana Schade-Renard on the show, and her creepy/spooky character is a major player this season. Lentz will talk with her about working on the show, her experiences as an actor, and what’s next.
Lentz will also interview Miss Washington Alicia Cooper and the 2017 Miss Clark County contestants. Last year, Vancouver resident Cooper won Miss Clark County, and then went on to win Miss Washington. She competed in the Miss America pageant, coming in as third runner-up. Lentz will find out what she’s been up to since she was a guest on Hello Vancouver a year ago. The audience will also meet the poised, talented, and professional contestants for Miss Clark County and Miss Teen Clark County.
Next, the audience will enjoy Hello Vancouver’s first-ever cooking segment, “Cooking with Anne.” Lentz will be joined by Vancouver Mayor Pro Tem Anne McEnerny-Ogle who can cook and bake like you wouldn’t believe! McEnerny-Ogle will take the audience on a moutwatering, step-by-step guide to making her caramel apple pie. *drool*
Lentz will also introduce the audience to Mark Matthias, owner of Beaches and Warehouse ‘23, who not only owns two of Vancouver’s most popular restaurants but is also one of our community’s most generous philanthropists. Lentz will talk with Mark about why giving back to the community matters to him and some of the unexpected ways he chooses to do it.
Finally, you’ll hear music by local band Bobbi, Joe and the New Guy, who play two songs during the show.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. Parking available on-street and in designated event parking on the north side of the street. There will be a no-host bar and concession-style snacks available for purchase. Better yet, have dinner before or after the show at the restaurant.
