If January is for you like anything it is for me, it feels a bit cold and clinical (especially with all the festive decorations gone). But no fear, there are plenty of January happenings this year! I know it’s a little late, but better late than never. Here are my top picks of things going on in January 2017 around Vancouver. In addition to this list, there is a separate list below of movies opening this month that I recommend as well!
