Tales from the West End
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
1209 Bidwell Street
“Tales from the West End” is an invitation to explore and experience our community through stories about our common past. The JJBean coffee shop is located in the original Maxine’s Hideaway, a West End landmark with many tales hidden in its walls. Originally a beauty parlour, many legends about tunnels and illicit activity in this building are part of the folklore of the West End. This is an opportunity to visit this newly renovated historic building, mingle with your neighbours, hear stories about Maxine’s and the West End from storyteller Mary Gavan, and explore opportunities and ideas to create community around the stories that contributed to creating our neighbourhood.
Event supporters include JJBean, WEArts and Heritage Vancouver Society. Admission is free.
Tuesday January 20th, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
7pm: Story Teller, Mary Gavan
