Hey YVR Foodies (https://www.facebook.com/groups/YVRFoodies/)!
Interested in coming out to more of these complimentary gourmet feasts exclusively reserved for YVR Foodies (https://www.facebook.com/YVRFoodies/), Food bloggers and social media influencers?
The next one is a Chinese New Year party hosted by Food Connections (https://www.facebook.com/foodcxn/). It'll be held at Fortune House Seafood Restaurant (Metrotown) LTD 福聯海鮮酒家 (https://www.facebook.com/fortunehouserestaurant/). We have a VIP private room booked for just our group and we'll be served a beautifully crafted multi-course menu (including dim sum!) with artisanal tea pairings, along with activities and engaging speakers.
Date: February 24th, 2016
Wednesday evening 6-9 pm
In return for the meal, we ask for a blog review of your experience (or Yelp/Facebook/TripAdvisor review) and social media coverage while you are at the restaurant. The entire meal and any non-alcoholic beverages will be complimentary!
If you would rather just enjoy the evening without doing the work, we appreciate the small fee of $20 at the door when you check-in. Please bring cash.
