Trip across the Inlet, anyone?

      When we pick the events for this spotlight, there is a pretty strict, scientific format that we follow; namely, is that the kind of thing we’d wanna go do? It is? Cool. Add it to the list. 

      Granted, that does result in the picks generally pertaining to the whims of a 29-year-old newsletter editor, but them’s the brakes. 

      It also just so happens that we aren’t exactly too picky about where events fall when considering just how fun they seem to be, which is how we ended up with three outta five landing north of Vancouver Harbour. 

      Apparently there’s never been a better time to give the ol’ SeaBus a spin than this week.
