Forget the return of NHL hockey: Last call at the Waldorf will bethe place to be in Vancouver.

And last call it will be. In what has become a defining cultural moment for Vancouver, the operators who have animated the Waldorf the last few years are shutting down operations. It is a development that has stunned the artistic community in a city that has suffered a troubling list of cultural losses over the past year… [read more]
