From Twelfth Night to The Big Game, here’s what’s up this weekend in YYC.
1. Twelfth Night
January 30th-February 24th
Theatre Calgary, 240 9 Ave SE
The perfect date night out. Watch as twins Viola and Sebastian are separated in a shipwreck and forced to find their way in a strange new land on their own. Fortunately, Illyria holds much misadventure, love, and laughter for them both. This refreshing take on Shakespeare’s classic comedy will leave you rolling in the aisles and begging for the thirteenth night.
2. 2018 YYC Hot Chocolate Fest
February 1st-February 28th
Hot chocolate lovers rejoice! February comes with cold AF temperatures and what goes well with frosty fingertips? All the hot beverages you can ask for. Join in on the friendly competition to find Calgary’s Best Hot Chocolate and visit the various local venues participating in the festival. A portion of the proceeds from each purchase will be donated to support Calgary Meals on Wheels.
3. The Blue Gala
February 3rd at 7:30pm
Art Commons, 205 8 Ave SE
This is a one of a kind show featuring some of Canada’s most coveted ballet, hip hop, contemporary, tap and ballroom dancers, which is meant to celebrate the winter blues (and more particularly, lift our audience’s collective spirit following Blue Monday). The performance is followed by a beautifully decorated gala reception with drinks, artisan hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction, the proceeds of which benefit Pancreatic Cancer Canada. Everyone wears blue so you won’t have to worry about matching.
4. The Big Game
February 4th from 12-8pm
National on 10th, 341 10th Ave SW
National’s pulling out the big guns this year. And by guns we mean screens. Watch the Superbowl while enjoying All Day Happy Hour specials on all Wild Rose Brewery pints, a Footlong Smokie feature, and game-day pricing on their famous wings. Game day has never been so easy. Reservations recommended, not required. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
