EN­TER­TAIN­MENT / The new 98-seat Hendricks Resto-Lounge oc­cu­pies the Westin Grand ho­tel's up­per lobby over­look­ing Li­brary Square in down­town Van­cou­ver. What's a resto-lounge? It's a 1,300-square­foot space with a cock­tail bar and a full-ser­vice restau­rant, plus live mu­sic or a DJ twice a week. RE­TAIL / Van­cou­ver's Nord­strom Pa­cific Cen­tre now has an in­cu­ba­tor project to show­case and sup­port new de­sign­ers. Called the Lab, it's one of only two in Canada and five world­wide.

DIN­ING / Botanist, Fair­mont Pa­cific Rim's new restau­rant in Van­cou­ver, also in­cludes a lab–for de­vel­op­ing cock­tails–along with a bar, din­ing room, cham­pagne lounge and gar­den, all in­spired by botan­i­cal prin­ci­ples. The sec­ond­floor space, ex­pected to open last month, re­places Oru. TRAVEL / Guests at the Opus Ho­tel in Van­cou­ver's Yale­town can now get a taste of B.C. with­out leav­ing their room. Mini­bars of­fer a se­lec­tion of lo­cal beers, spir­its, spiked cof­fee and other good­ies. GEAR / Founded and run by a group of avid cy­clists, 7mesh Inc. in Squamish has pro­duced a new Oro Gore-tex jacket that is not just light to wear–93 grams for size medium–but thin enough to stuff in a pocket un­til needed. ED­U­CA­TION / B.C. has a new place of learn­ing. Yorkville Univer­sity, pre­vi­ously on­line only, has opened its first phys­i­cal cam­pus, lo­cated on West Ge­or­gia Street in Van­cou­ver. Fred­er­ic­ton­based Yorkville, which of­fers a bach­e­lor of busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion for work­ing adults, has nearly 2,000 alumni across Canada. –F.S.
