It is hard to believe that Tasting Plates has been around for 5 years. It seems like only yesterday that Richard @vanfoodster started these very successful events, but it is true. In addition to Tasting Plates he has also been offering Brunch Crawls during Dine Out Vancouver. Congratulations to Richard on his ongoing success. Come and enjoy the 5th Anniversary Tasting Plates with Richard, and of course me! Here is the announcement.
Join us and celebrate our 5th Anniversary of Tasting Plates and tantalize your taste buds at several restaurants in downtown Vancouver. This evening tasting extravaganza is on Wednesday March 8 from 6pm until 10pm and is presented by Vancouver Foodster.
Each restaurant will be serving up Tasting Plates and Tasting Cups for guests to enjoy and you will have a chance to visit many different types of restaurants throughout the event, meet some new food loving friends, meet the chefs, and learn about each of the participating restaurants.
If you haven’t been to our previous Tasting Plates events, Novus TV featured one of our previous events on City Lights (view here).
