"On the Coast" live at the Patricia Hotel January 15

Patspub.GIF"On the Coast" with host Stephen Quinn will be broadcasting live from Pat's Pub inside the Patricia Hotel on January 15 from 3 - 6pm. Join us as we explore the cultural profile of the Downtown Eastside, the neighborhood of Strathcona, and even historic Chinatown. Seating will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Stephen will be talking to "house historian" James Johnstone who will give periodic profiles of specific buildings in Strathcona - when they were built, who lived there, stories of the residents, and where they are now. Photographer Bev Davies will be on hand sharing her memories of how the neighbourhoods used to rock. In the 1970s and 80s, she captured images of old rock and roll venues, as well as the homes of rockers in the area.

With the improving economies of Strathcona and the Downtown Eastside, new developments have caused controversy in Chinatown and you can hear what it's all about. City Councilor Geoff Meggs will also share why he'd like to see the Georgia Viaduct demolished.
All that and even live musical performances from including artist Ndidi Onukwulu!
