Taste of Yaletown 2012: Premiere & Shake Up

Comments 106 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The 8th annual Taste of Yaletown is coming up this month as restaurants serve up delicious deals and savoury specials celebrating this downtown neighbourhood.

From October 17th to 27th, 2012 you can visit some of Yaletown’s best eateries and dining establishments to enjoy set price 3-course dinners for $25, $35, and $45. A portion of profits from each participating restaurant will be donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

As a media sponsor again this year, I have a pair of tickets available for two exciting signature Taste of Yaletown events:

CIBC Presents Taste of Yaletown: Premiere
The premiere will be held October 17th at Mini Yaletown. Attendees will sample menu items and drinks from participating restaurants such as Glowbal Grill Steaks & Satay, George Ultra Lounge, New Oxford, Hamilton Street Grill, Society, Yaletown L’Antipasto, Cache Lounge & Bistro, Killjoy and Minami. Tickets on sale now for $59.

Shake Up Yaletown
Sip and savour award-winning cocktail creations from Yaletown’s best bartenders on October 25th at Minami Restaurant. Guests will sample competing cocktails and feature menu items. Tickets on sale now for $30.

Here’s how you can enter to win tickets to one of these Taste of Yaletown events:
