If going out in the evening is not possible, a family-friendly daytime option is available in Vancouver. Instead of the regularly scheduled Real Ale Sunday, The Whip has closed off the block for its annual East Van Show & Shine and Fundraiser. In addition to a display of vintage vehicles, there will be cask R&B Raspberry Wheat, Longwood Witbier, and Swans Smooth Sailing Honey Ale; food; and live entertainment. Proceeds from the event go to the Canadian Cancer Society’s Camp Goodtimes.
