Rain It In

Got nothing to do during those dreary early March days?

All the wintertime festivities are over, the novelty of the new year has worn off and a new season is still a few weeks away. What is there to do now, besides wait until Spring? Well, if you find yourself in Surrey, there’s plenty of fun things to do! Just because the sky is grey and gloomy, doesn’t mean your day has to be.

Tired of sitting around the house? Give you taste buds a little treat by visiting Dominion Bar + Kitchen (13475 Central Avenue) for a new Canadian meal. Dominion is the perfect weekend brunch menu filled with nourishing meals, classic brunch fare, and even some fun surprises. Dim Sum for brunch? Yes please. Shakshuka + Lebanese flatbread? Delightful! Mix and match and order to share for the perfect rainy day pick-me-up.

Looking for something less intense? Try a classic indoor activity: bowling! Head over to Dell Lanes (10576 King George Boulevard), for some friendly competition and crispy chicken wings. To get out of that gloomy day funk, visit during Dell Lane’s laser bowling, where rockin’ music will pump you up as you bowl on glow-in-the dark lanes between colourful lights and the haze of a fog machine.

If you want to get out of the house, but are looking for a more quiet day out of the rain, visit the Surrey Art Gallery (13750 – 88 Avenue) located in Bear Creek park. Enjoy exhibits featuring local artists or take a tour for the full art experience. With both permanent and temporary exhibits, there is always a new artwork to experience.

Don’t let the rainy day blues get a hold of you. Even when the weather is unpleasant, you can still get out and enjoy all that Surrey has to offer.
