Last week Vancouver Public Spaces Network and Space2Place hosted their first Lunch Meet. An immediate success, trending city-wide on Twitter, this free outdoor event will take place every Thursday in July.
The concept is simple, head to the 300 block of Abbott Street (at Cordova) anytime between 11:30am and 1:30pm to meet a neighbour, eat your lunch, get lunch from a food truck, and enjoy some music.
A report on last week from VPSN: “Lunch Meet transformed the 300-block of Abbott Street into an urban cafeteria, offering a long-table dining experience and a range of exciting culinary choices. Many participants took advantage of the lunch specials offered by local businesses and food carts, while others chose to pack their own lunches. Local DJ Rocky Fisher provided musical entertainment throughout the communal outdoor meal.”
