Alright, Tuesday. Just one day before Wednesday, and one day after Monday. We’re getting there!
Here are five things happening in and around Victoria today!
What: If you’ve ever listened to the radio and thought, “Dang, I sure would like to hear ‘Cuts Like A Knife’ live in front of thousands of people,” you’re in luck. Bryan Adams is playing the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre tonight as part of The Ultimate Tour. The tour is in support of his new album Get Up, so you can expect a few new tracks sprinkled in among the usual hits, like “Summer of ’69”, “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You”, and “Run to You”.
Where: Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, 1925 Blanshard St.
When: 8–11 p.m.
Admission: Tickets available here!
What: Brought to you by the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, YYJ Eats is a showcase of local food and beverage companies. The event will feature an wicked spread of gourmet food samples, local wine, craft beers and specialty cocktails—all created and presented by some of Victoria’s most popular restaurants, breweries, wineries, cideries & spirit makers!
Where: 835 Humboldt St.
When: 5–7 p.m.
Admission: Tickets available here; pre-registration required; no minors
What: Habitat for Humanity Victoria is excited to launch ReFind Art, an art auction and fundraiser featuring 31 local artists and businesses. Each artist was challenged to create a piece of art using only materials found at Habitat Victoria’s ReStore, resulting in a eclectic display of artworks both beautiful and weird. The public is invited to stop by and visit the display at the lower level of The Bay Centre, where they can bid and become the proud owner of one or more of these one-of-a-kind art creations.
Where: The Bay Centre, 1150 Douglas St.
When: Open until June 10
What: Tony Genge, John Lee, and Kelby MacNayr play the first of three Tuesdays at Hermann’s Jazz Club. The trio promises an awesome night of swinging soulful jazz, complimented with a tasty martini feature or two.
Where: Hermann’s Jazz Club, 753 View St.
When: 8–11 p.m.
Cost: $10; available online
What: Got a rip in your favourite jeans? Threads coming apart on an old shirt? Don’t get rid of those clothes just yet; this two-part wardrobe surgery workshop will show you all you need to know about repurposing old clothes into something new. Measure, stitch, cut, and sew with support of a skilled instructor, and turn those old rags into a new bag, skirt, or whatever you want!

When: 6–8:30 p.m.; second workshop on Tuesday, June 12
