FREE TICKETS for Eat! Vancouver

From: Danielle B.
Sent on: Saturday, May 15, 2010 11:15 AM
Hello Butterflies,

Yes I am still in town - and I have free tickets to this event, especially for Social Butterflies!

Reply to this email (it will come directly to me, not to the entire list) and let me know if you want 1 or 2 tickets. You will have to arrange directly with me for pickup/delivery of your tickets since they mailed them to me. I work in Burnaby next to Holdom skytrain station and you can get them from me there between 8am and 4:30pm, or we can arrange another time/place.

I will probably be working at the show (be sure to stop by the booth for Fentimans Botanically Brewed Beverages and get a free sample from us!), so I am not posting this as an event for any particular day or time, but please feel free to organize yourselves on the discussion board.

Friday, May 28th 2 PM - 9 PM
Saturday, May 29th 11 AM - 9 PM
Sunday, May 30th 11 AM - 5 PM

Danielle B. :)

P.S. Watch out for PICA dinner and other events coming up soon - I am back in Pt. Roberts and getting settled for a while. Maybe. You just never know with me!


New Location! The New Vancouver Convention Centre

We are pleased to announce that the Eighth Annual EAT! Vancouver Food + Cooking Festival will launch on May 28 - 30, 2010 at it's brand new home: the recently opened Vancouver Convention Centre - West, the acclaimed new, state of the art addition to the existing Vancouver Convention Centre at Canada Place in the heart of Vancouver. (Our former home, BC Place will be replacing it's roof starting in March 2010. All events had to relocate during construction.)

EAT! Vancouver Food and Cooking Festival is the ultimate food expo

Celebrity chefs, popular local restaurants, wineries, food and beverage manufacturers, cookbook authors, retailers, artisans, and many others from the culinary world will come together for a three day public extravaganza at the new Vancouver Convention Centre. EAT Vancouver encompasses unique food experiences, opportunities to learn behind-the-scenes culinary magic from professional chefs, dynamic entertainment through celebrity chef cooking demonstrations and culinary competitions, diverse food, beverage and cooking related exhibits; and of course fantastic shopping opportunities.

Come for lunch and stay for dinner at EAT! Vancouver's Bite of Vancouver restaurant pavilion. The chefs of favourite Lower Mainland restaurants will serve up appetizer portions of their signature recipes. For a nominal charge ($1.00 - $2.50) per item you will be able to savour the flavours of numerous eateries.

Beer, wine and spirits will be well represented in the Tasting Pavilion where you can sip and taste hundreds of different beverages. Hosted by Daenna Van Mulligen, Vancouver?s Wine Diva, the Grapes and Hops Stage will feature presentations and tastings of numerous local and regional beers and wines conducted by a variety of industry experts. In addition, Giffard will be sponsoring mixology presentations featuring four of Vancouver's top bartenders.

EAT! Vancouver is Canada's largest consumer food, beverage and cooking festival taking place at the new Vancouver convention Centre, West Wing, Vancouver, BC on May 28, 29 & 30, 2010. The food show features hundreds of food, beverage and kitchen goods exhibitors along with wineries, breweries, restaurants, cooking demonstrations, wine and cheese seminars, cookbook authors, and chef competitions.

We're making every effort to minimize EAT! Vancouver's impact on our environment. The 2010 EAT! Vancouver festival is bullfrogpowered with 100% green electricity. This means that Bullfrog Power will inject carbon-free green power onto the British Columbia electricity grid to match the amount of electricity used by this event. Bullfrog?s green power is sourced exclusively from wind power and low-impact hydro producers who meet or exceed the federal government's EcoLogoM standard for renewable energy. The Vancouver Convention Centre has a living roof, seawater heating and cooling, on-site water treatment and fish habitat built into the foundation of the West Building make it one of the "greenest" convention centres in the world.
