EAT! Vancouver is a foodie's heaven. It's next weekend (June 10th to 12th). I am seriously excited. You should be too.
Vancouver chefs, cookbook authors, artisans, retailers... etc all in one place, offering cooking demos, food & cooking exhibits, yummy things to buy, and my favourite... drumroll please... the Bite of Vancouver, which consists of restaurants throughout the lower mainland offering appetizer size portions from their regular menus for a couple of bucks!
You can, as they say, "come for lunch and stay for dinner".
Other highlights include wine, beer and spirits tasting (maybe you should take the bus as a precaution...), chef competitions, and a garden pavilion (speaking of gardens - have you SEEN my herb garden?).
And... drumroll again please... I've got a pair of free tickets for you!! Yay!
But before that... my herb garden:
See how incredibly not dead it is?! You have my permission to be impressed...
