Summer In The City on the cover of this week’s Georgia Straight


Every week our friends at The Georgia Straight provide us with a preview of what you’ll see on – and in – their paper that week. They are THE source for lifestyle and entertainment in our city and along with their robust online presence they’ve always released a print edition, distributed everywhere each Thursday.


The cover this week is Summer in the City. Vancouver’s beach-volleyball craze has players lining up for courts; plus, a comprehensive roundup of concerts, arts fests, and multicultural events.

Their guide to everything Summer in the City is HERE.
