Taste BC (Thursday January 22)

Liberty Merchant Company is once again hosting Taste BC to gather British Columbia’s food and beverage industry in an effort to raise money for the BC Children’s Hospital’s Oak Tree Clinic which specializes in providing care and services to sufferers of HIV/AIDS. The second annual celebration of local food and drink takes place:
Date: January 22, 2009
Time: 4:30-7:30 p.m
Location: Hyatt Regency Hotel (655 Burrard Street)
Event goers will not only indulge in tastings from some of the finest restaurants, wineries, breweries and cheese purveyors in BC, they will also benefit one of the province’s most vital medical institutions. Along with the great food and drink, the attractions include live music, door prizes and a silent auction that features luxury items, including local experience packages and delicious products made by British Columbia’s own.
According to Regan Schwartz, the Director of Marketing at Liberty:

I know dieting is a new year’s resolution for everyone, but I think all of us would agree that Taste BC is one event the diet can be put on hold for. Not only is it a gastronomical celebration of all that’s great about British Columbia, the gathering also benefits people in our community who need our help more than ever

Tickets can be purchased at all Liberty locations for $49.99 each.

This is unlike many fine dining experiences I’ve had where they decided to put the meal on top of a plate of salt instead of the other way around.

Modern Mix Monday – Chill Winston

Looking for something to do? Every Monday morning, we present to you “Modern Mix Monday”, a brief but link-filled one-liner review of our past weekend loaded with suggestions to inspire you for your next!

Dessert and Drinks on Friday night at Chill Winston in Gastown. Got the “Pursuit” cocktail (Absolut pear vodka, apple liqueur, gazela vinho verde, pear and ginger puree and a dash of lemonade) while my friend got fruity sangria. We shared the dessert sampler “The Beast of Both Worlds” with bite sized fruit and choclate desserts. Small and dainty but surprisingly great for sharing because their sweets (fudge, moouse, cheesecake, etc.) are so filling.
