Vancouver Foodster’s Dine Out Brunch Crawls – Get Your Tickets

What’s better than going to a Dine Out Vancouver restaurant for dinner?  How about going to 4-5 different restaurants, cafes, and coffee shops for brunch.  That is what Vancouver Foodster is offering those who are willing to get out of bed and enjoy a morning brunch.  For Dine Out Vancouver, the following brunches are being offered:

These brunch crawls are very similar to Vancouver Foodster’s Tasting Plates events.  You will get a card at the registration desk for one of the crawls, and then you visit each restaurant/cafe/coffee shop and get a sample of their food and/or beverages they are offering for the event.  It is a great way to try different/new restaurants, plus walking between the restaurants, gives you some time to burn off what you ate.

As an example of what to expect, I have listed the Kitsilano Brunch Crawl participating restaurants for you.  Enjoy and see you at these events!
