Editor's Note: Globe B.C. has joined forces with Scout Magazine to give you the best of what's happening in Vancouver this weekend. For a full week's worth of listings, head over to the complete Scout List, updated each Monday. See the list in calendar view here.

Indulge: Make room on your schedule to head to the Four Seasons Hotel this Thursday night. Chef Ned Bell, along with Four Season's lead bartender, Justin Taylor, have invited West Restaurant's executive chef Quang Dang and bartender David Wolowidnyk, as well as chef Jonathan Chovancek and mixologist Lauren Mote from Bittered Sling, to come to Yew Seafood + Bar to get in on a little chef-swapping action. Rather than stay teamed up with their usual chef, bartenders will be partnered with a chef from one of the other two teams. The price of the ticket might be steep, but it's worth it to have three fantastic chefs and three equally talented bartenders working together to present one six-course meal.

March 6, Yew Seafood + Bar (791 W. Georgia St.), $125, yewseafood.com

Community: If you live in or are concerned about any of the neighbourhoods subject to Vancouver's new community plans, you might want to make your way to the Arts & Culture Alliance building. The Heritage Vancouver has assembled a line-up of guest speakers including Holly Sovdi (west end planner), Tom Wanklin (senior planner, Downtown Eastside Neighbourhoods Group) and James Boldt (heritage planner) to discuss heritage in the context of community plans. Attendees are invited to ask questions and share ideas.

Thursday, March 6, 7-9 p.m., Arts & Culture Alliance, #100-938 Howe St., free, preregistration required, heritagevancouver.org

Portside pulp: Poke your head into Gastown's Portside Pub for a pint of Persephone Golden Goddess Ale and a look at a new art exhibition called Pulp. Artists were challenged to capture the old maritime heritage of Vancouver by "blending port-based Vancouver archival imagery with Men's Adventure Magazine and vintage 'pulp' paper-like references." Participating artists include Drew Young, Jay Senetchko, Caroline Weaver, Stefan Tosheff, Francis Tiffany, Noah Stacey and Ilya Viryachev.

Friday, March 7, 7-10 p.m., The Portside Pub, 7 Alexander St.,

Ukulele festival: The Vancouver Ukulele Festival sold out last year and chances are good it will sell out again.

Sunday brings a full day of workshops for every level of ukulele enthusiast, but workshops are already sold out.
