The simple things are so beautiful - Sooke BC (macmoments_ on Instagram)

Fall is officially here, and we’re in the middle of an election! Now seems like an especially good time for some relaxing things to do.

As you head out to activities and events, please follow the restrictions and guidelines that these businesses require to keep their employees and patrons safe during the pandemic.

As always, wash your hands, wear masks, practice physical distancing, and stay home if you feel sick or show symptoms!

Without further ado, here are five things to do today, Tuesday September 22nd:

Jaya Bremer Quintet

Jaya Bremer joins four other musicians at Hermann’s Jazz Club for some melancholic yet quirky, touching yet dissonant, refreshing yet familiar music.
