Abracadabra! The upcoming Community Treasures exhibit is all about magic!

Real Life Surrey Hocus Pocus

Leon Mandrake was a Surrey-based magician best known as Mandrake the Magician. His son Lon Mandrake, also a magician, has teamed up with MOS staff to display memorabilia about his father's notable career. Expect to see:

  • Magical tools of the trade that belonged to Mandrake the Magician, including decks of cards, his magic wand and a crystal ball to name a few
  • Posters from performances
  • Comics, figurines and ephemera from that era
  • Performance costumes belonging to Mandrake the Magician and his assistant, Lon’s mom Velvet 

The Famous Comic Strip

The comic book character “Mandrake the Magician” was created by Leon Mandrake's comic book artist friend ten years after he started performing. The comic book character mimics Mandrake’s top hat, pencil moustache and scarlet cape.

In case you haven't been paying attention, the NHL is kicking off its season today. It's an abbreviated 56 game sprint, with teams pretty much playing every other day, in 'series' of 2-3 games against the same opposition.
We'll be helping you get into the action with a 'Lucky Puck' promo for every Canucks game. Come on in when the locals are playing, grab a puck, and if you have one that corresponds with a goal scorer, you can enjoy a beer on us.
Our cool joint, cold beer, and sizzling hot hockey action - we got ya covered this season.
