Still Looking for the Perfect Gift?
We Have Just the Ticket!
If you have a wine and food lover on your shopping list, we have a holiday gift suggestion that’s bound to be well received. Dine Out Vancouver’s The Great Big Taste on Thursday, January 16 2020 will pair bites from some of Vancouver’s top chefs with BC wine, craft beer, and spirit samples. Tickets to the event, which takes place the night before the festival opens, are $89 all in, making it a great gift…and maybe a post-holiday treat for yourself as well, to brighten up your January calendar.
The food and drink at The Great Big Taste will be first-class, but the evening is all about enjoyment, so leave your pinchy shoes at home.
