IF YOU WANT TO PURCHASE TICKETS FOR THE BREW HA-HA IN ADVANCE ($15), YOU MUST COME IN PERSON TO THE DSBIA OFFICE (330-10362 KING GEORGE BOULEVARD) ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 5 BETWEEN 9:30AM-5PM). TICKETS WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR ($20).
Have you been wondering what the new building is on 100 Avenue near 140th Street? It is the Rising Sun Social Innovation Centre.
And we are going to give you a chance to take a look around during the informal and unofficial opening – a Brew Ha-Ha.
The Brew-Ha-Ha on Friday, November 6 is a new event for the Downtown Surrey BIA. It’s all about coffee, comedy and art. Local artists have been invited to display their artwork around the themes of laughter, comedy, community, happiness, or coffee. A number of local coffee shops including Blenz, McDonald’s and Starbucks are supplying the coffee.
The comedy shows are hosted by Colin Sharp and featured the comedic talents of Gavin Clarkson, Shane Clark, and Ryan Lachance. The host, Colin Sharp, hails from Vancouver. He spent his high school years telling people he was too scared to do stand-up, his college years telling people he would love to do stand-up, and is now spending his adult years trying to avoid telling strangers that he does stand-up.
Gavin Clarkson, a transplanted Yukoner, now lives in Vancouver. He is a gold mine as an up and coming comedian. Shane Clark grew up in a small town in Northern B.C. Last, but definitely not least, is Ryan Lachance. While he has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, Ryan has toured Canada from coast to coast.
So join us and bring your friends, family and neighbours to the first Brew Ha-Ha. Tickets are available in advance for $15 and can be purchased at the Downtown Surrey BIA office. Tickets are also available at the door for $20. Proceeds will go to the Surrey Food Bank.
