Straight from Press Release:

Flyin’ Cirque Acrobats, Comedic Foolery, & Swingin’ Soiree

What happens when a vintage dinner cabaret hits Vancouver a century too late? 

Well, it features not only the glitz of traditional trapeze artists, but also the excitement of world-record-breaking acrobats doing back flips on pogo sticks. Vinyl Vaudeville attempts to replicate the century-old tradition of combining a sassy cabaret, dinner theatre, and after-show swingin’ dance soiree together with a twist.

In the style of the early 1900’s, the production features cirque performers, dancers, and comedic actors all backed by an acoustic swing band. The show’s highlight is a duo from Los Angeles who performs acrobatic stunts on pogo sticks. Collectively they hold eight Guinness World Records, and have a long list of prestigious appearances including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, America’s Got Talent, and Ellen.

Get ready to be whisked away by the host of quirky characters into the magic of a bygone era. Dressing spiffy for the occasion in your vintage attire is always encouraged. Vinyl Vaudeville takes over Performance Works on Granville Island from February 10th till the 18th. It’s a romantic place to take your sweetie for Valentine’s Day, but is also appropriate for the whole family.

Difference between Sour Milk and Spoiled Milk – Food Tips

August 6th, 2011

From my friend A.C., a great dining companion who is a fountain of knowledge about certain subjects…

Long forgotten fact:
Sour milk is 100% SAFE to drink. Spoiled milk is not. Sour and spoiled are not the same, and spoiled milk is not always sour. What do you think yogurt, sour cream, and cottage cheese are made of??? In fact, today’s sour milk is MUCH SAFER than sour milk from, say 250 years ago.

There are old fashioned sour milk recipes available online and in cook books if you don’t want to waste milk that’s been sitting in the fridge for days past expiry date. Can also be used in alcoholic drinks too, if you’re having guests over. 🙂
