Last night I hopped on a Vancouver Trolley and I had no idea where I was going. As a guest of the Secret Supper SoirÃ©e, all I knew is that the trolley would take us to three locations (that were not restaurants) where we would enjoy four wine pairings and six dinner courses. As it is a secret supper tour, I will not divulge the locations, however some may be able to take a few guesses based on my photos.
The food almost took a back seat to the experience on this culinary journey as I visited locations in Vancouver that I have never had the chance of exploring before. With a glass of wine in hand, I thoroughly enjoyed the iconic, unique, and historic venues that I had only previously read (or written) about.
The Secret Supper SoirÃ©e runs for five more nights, January 15, 28, and 29 as well as February 4 and 5, 2011 departing from the Pacific Central station at 6:00pm sharp. You will have plenty of time at each stop to wander, purchase additional hand-crafted cocktails, and enjoy your courses. The tour host will give everyone 15, 10, and 5 minute warnings before the trolley departs for the next venue.
The cost is $79 per person without wine pairings, or $119 with wine, and guests can make requests based on dietary requirements/restrictions when you book. I would recommend the tour for a group (of at least 3) as it’s a very social experience — fancy dress is also encouraged.
Update All tours are sold out however you can check out other upcoming culinary events from the organizers, Swallow Tail Canada.
