Our lat­est life­style choices

DINE/ Parq Van­cou­ver, the newish ho­tel and casino com­plex near BC Place, now in­cludes a restau­rant over­look­ing its park­like green space on the sixth floor. The Vic­tor (its logo reads “To the vic­tor be­long the spoils”), whose oak fur­ni­ture was in­spired by the ta­bles and benches in the Bri­tish House of Com­mons, of­fers seafood, steak, and a sushi and raw bar.

FLY/ Kelowna-based Flair Air­lines Ltd. has ac­quired two ad­di­tional Boe­ing 737-400s and a new colour de­sign for its fleet, cho­sen last sum­mer through an on­line cus­tomer sur­vey. Serv­ing Van­cou­ver, Ab­bots­ford, Kelowna, Ed­mon­ton, Win­nipeg, Hamil­ton and Toronto, the ul­tra-low­cost car­rier op­er­ates seven air­craft and plans to add two Boe­ing 737-800s later this year. Flair ex­pects to pur­chase four more Boe­ing planes in 2019, to help ac­com­mo­date an es­ti­mated 1.5 mil­lion pas­sen­gers. SHOP/ Ath­leisure re­tailer Lu­l­ule­mon Ath­let­ica Inc. has opened a stand-alone store for men at the Park Royal Shop­ping Cen­tre in West Van­cou­ver.

Its Gas­town lo­ca­tion will con­tinue to sell ap­parel for both sexes while the com­pany tests the new women's shop over the next year.
