Pulse survey: who loves Dine Out Vancouver? If your answer was ‘yes, I do, I do’ then you will be happy to hear you don’t have to wait until the grey days of January to participate in a Dine Out-esque experience.
That’s right, the ninth annual Taste of Yaletown celebration is back – Dine Out Vancouver’s mini me.
Taste of Yaletown takes over Vancouver’s historic waterfront warehouse district from October 16-27th. This year’s festival of dining, drinking, sampling and sipping features three different set menu prices ($25, $35 and $45), special events and over 30 restaurants. The tastes of Yaletown span the globe.
Or perhaps you want to try something a little more Euro? The Provence Marinaside menus are worthy stand-ins for a trip to the Cote d’Azure. Try the grilled Steelhead or Bouillabaisse paired with a Spanish Sauvignon Blanc or French Rosé.
Taste of Yaletown allows you to trot across continents without leaving town.
The Taste of Yaletown festival isn’t just about food. There’s a whole suite of events taking place across the seaside enclave.
On October 17/18, 24/25 Y Yoga Yaletown on Homer Street hosts ‘Split Shift Community yoga’. The flow yoga classes (2:30-3:30 p.m.) will be by-donation with proceeds going to the BC Hospitality Foundation. On both Fridays of Taste of Yaletown, local micro-brew maestros Parallel 49 Brewing Company will hold tastings at the Yaletown Urban Fare on Davie Street.
Yaletown explorers looking to extend their experience into the evening can swing by Raw Canvas on October 18 and 25 to catch live music by local singer-songwriters Rob Fillo and Sam Weber.
Want to go for a Taste of Yaletown lunch and need a lift? On the Thursdays and Fridays of the festival (October 17/18 and 24/25) the Vancouver Trolley Company will offer free trolley rides into and out of Yaletown leaving from three different downtown locations.
So no need to wait for three more months for your Dine Out Vancouver fix in January, mosey down to Yaletown to sample local and international cuisine and take in some cool events.
