“Crime Pays” in Vancouver (for one night)

I have a lot of affection for my newest home, and one of the things I am committed to doing is spreading the word on special events that make Vancouver so very special.  So without embellishing the awesome job that my friend @raincoaster has done, I’ll re-post the details of Monday’s Crime Pays party in the hopes that more folks will come – or keep the unique Police Museum in mind for an upcoming visit.


Please join the Shebeen Club and the Federation of BC Writers at the Vancouver Police Museum for Crime Pays – the party of the year.

What: a wicked good fundraiser for the Fed

Wanted: YOU!

Come help the Fed celebrate 32 years of getting away with murder. Whether infiltrating schools, divvying up swag, or distributing subversive publications, the Federation of BC Writers has been operating unchecked in our province for decades.

Do you enjoy the vicarious thrill of rubbing shoulder pads with the Lost Literati of the Wild West surrounded by all manner of murder and mayhem in the cozy confines of the Police Museum? Do you have what it takes to make your bones as a Fed member? There’s only one way to find out! Come out to the party and make us an offer we can’t refuse.

Admission: $20 donation includes a drink and appetizers. Click here to register. If you won’t be attending, but would like to support the Fed with a donation, click here to donate via the raincoaster media Paypal.

Bring cash for the Poetry Brothel, and bring your chequebook to bid on some of the most attractive Guys and
Dolls around in our date auction!

Dress code: Trenchcoat and fedora, deerstalker and cape, jailhouse stripes, uniforms, Bond or femme fatale slinkwear all optional but encouraged. Attitude absolutely mandatory.

Raffle prize donations, bribes, and sponsorship applications very welcome: please email lorraine.murphy at

The Crime Pays fundraiser will be our Shebeen Club meeting for the month of March, so I hope to see everyone
there, dressed fabulously and behaving infamously!
