What’s going on and where’s it happening?!
I know, I know . . . you ‘re thinking “Comox Valley nightlife? Is that an oxymoron?”
And maybe if you were here in the 1990s, you might be forgiven for thinking that way. But these days, there are plenty of things to do after dinner.
After all, we can’t all stay in our cozy Comox Valley homes all the time, right? So here is a collection of suggestions for when you feel the need to get out and about.
Whether you like to listen to music or perhaps prefer to make it, this Valley has got you covered. Numerous establishments offer entertainment on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, such as Cornerstone Taphouse; the Waverley; the Griffin Pub; The Whistle Stop; Roy’s Towne Pub; and The Flying Canoe. Most of those places offer karaoke evenings and many also host drop-in jam nights. And where there is music, there’s often dancing, so feel free to get up and boogie!
If theatrical entertainment is more your style, check out the offerings at the Sid Williams Theatre. “The Sid” has been keeping us all entertained for years. Dedicated to the stimulation and enhancement of artistic, cultural and recreational activities in the Comox Valley and surrounding regions, the theatre hosts everything from local dance groups and choirs to international films and entertainers. Have a look at their schedule of events and you’ll find something that suits.
Of course, some of us enjoy getting out and getting active in the evenings. For the physically inclined, the local recreation options are plentiful. The pools and skating rinks always have lots to do and details are on the CVRD website at www.comoxvalleyrd.ca. Plus, there is a wide assortment of great programs offered through the awesome recreational facilities in Comox, Courtenay and Cumberland.
If you want more info for events on specific dates, the What’s On Digest listings are a great resource.
As you can see, there are plenty of things to do in the evening if you go out looking for it. Have fun!
