First Friday in Vancouver’s city center is THE place to be from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 6, with great art, yummy desserts and treats, and of course your friends, family (or perhaps your hot date). This monthly event is brought to you by Vancouver’s Downtown Association, and you can start planning your evening now by clicking on this handy-dandy hotsheet and map.
You’ll get your fill of “Art! Sweet Art” with delicious bites of creativity at galleries, shops and restaurants, as well as savoring literal bites of deliciousness when you sample goods from the bakers and chocolatiers who have been invited to be a part of this First Friday. The cherry on your cupcake will be the sweet chance to meet local mystery author Ellie Alexander, author of the selling-like-hotcakes “Meet Your Baker,” the first book of her Bakeshop Mystery Series. Alexander will be on hand to sign books at Divine Consign, 904 Main St.
