City Circus | Hot and Happening

1. Check out local Vancouverite Sarah Cameron's Etsy shop to find some gorgeous, gold and glittering arm candy. 

2.  The world's largest outdoor dining event, Diner en Blanc, is coming to Vancouver! Consider it a flash mob picnic where friends and acquaintances are invited to a secret locale, announced the day of the event, to converge for a public dinner. Guests dress all in white and are expected to conduct themselves with the highest elegance and dining etiquette. The general public can register here to be on a waiting list for the August 30th event. 

3. Huffington Post Canada just launched a British Columbia edition. 

British Columbia, HuffPost "will go beyond the superficial comment to truly reflect the wide-ranging social, ethnic and economic makeup of our province," B.C. news editor Andree Lau wrote in a blog posting. "We're here to present B.C.'s diversity of experience without judgment or limitation. But we also won't be afraid to cheer for the underdog." - The Huffington Post Canada

I'm intrigued. Read B.C.'s HuffPost here.

4. Vancouver celebrates Fashion's Night Out 2012 on Thursday, September 6th. Originally started in NYC in 2009, FNO is a global initiative to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, and boost the industry's economy during the recession.
