There are many reasons to dim the lights during dinner. Perhaps you’re looking for some romance. Or the pot roast you just plated is a bit overdone, and you’re trying to hide the evidence.
On Thursday, October 25th, you can dine by candlelight as a way of demonstrating how simple actions, like turning off unnecessary lights, can make a big difference when it comes to saving electricity.
Nearly 45 restaurants and eateries in and around Vancouver are participating in the annual Candlelight Conservation Dinner in an effort to raise awareness about energy conservation.
In addition to providing the mood lighting for your dinner out, the establishments are each providing a special offer for the night, from free appies and desserts, to two-for-one offers and other appealing discounts.
