Say, “Hello, summer!” with Hello Vancouver!, the Couve’s own, always surprising, always entertaining, and sometimes even educational community talk show on Wednesday, June 28. The show starts at 7 p.m. at the Warehouse ’23 event rooms, located adjacent to the restaurant at 100 Columbia Street, right on the riverfront. You’ll have a great view from any seat, with Hello Vancouver’s live broadcast of the show on the large screen. Your host is the inimitable Temple Lentz, who never fails to delight.
The show is free—although enthusiastic guests can purchase Limited Premiere Seating, including a drink ticket and goody bag, for $15 per person. (To reserve your premiere seat, click here.) The doors open at 6 p.m.. A no-host bar and concession snacks are available for purchase. Or, better yet, have dinner before or after the show at Warehouse ’23! Parking available on-street and in designated event parking on the north side of the street. Please park in the designated lot across the street, so restaurant patrons can still park.
Here are this month’s special guests:
- Tom Mears, Burgerville chairman and author of “Serve with Love: Sustainable Marketing Tips from Burgerville“: When Jacob Propstra sailed to America from the Netherlands in 1914, he had no idea his humble creamery would one day inspire the Pacific Northwest institution we now know as Burgerville. After one particularly disastrous beach retreat, Tom Mears, CEO, knew the company’s mission was in trouble. In Serve with Love, Mears writes about the critical decisions Burgerville’s team took to build this mission-led business, and a number of the mistakes they made along the way. His book is now available in paperback.
- Daron Deonier, Barre Foodie: A Pure Barre instructor and good-food enthusiast, Daron makes healthy eating simple, beautiful, and delicious. Grounding her recipes in a love of seasonal produce, full flavor, and bright color, she creates meals that anyone can reproduce at home. With appearances on KGW, an active website, and a cookbook in the making, Daron is changing lives one plate at a time.
- Northwest Paranormal and Occult Research: Temple will visit with local ghost hunters! If you’ve ever wondered about the things that go bump in the night when THE DOG IS RIGHT THERE NEXT TO YOU, you don’t want to miss this. Temple doesn’t even believe in ghosts and she had to sleep with the lights on for like three days after watching some of their videos. This all-volunteer team of paranormal researchers documents activity in homes and businesses, and reports on what they find, as well as doing thorough research on the building in question, to find out more about what energy may still be lingering.
- Nikolette Divine sings with local Americana band The Pearls, and she is finishing up the work on a five-song solo EP that was funded just this past winter with a Kickstarter campaign. She’s got an incredible voice and writes some killer songs. You’ll definitely want to hear her share a couple of them with us, backed by members of The Pearls.
