PATIO Vancouver Giveawayby
Hot days call for a cool beverage on a shady patio and John and I experienced just that over the weekend. Our friends at PATIO Vancouver – a collaboration of a bunch of local BIAs (Business Improvement Associations) – have put together a map of over 400 outdoor dining spaces in Vancouver. From Dunbar to the East Village, Cambie to the West End and Gastown, with all points in between – it’s your go-to guide for outdoor dining in the city. To celebrate, I have a giveaway! But first, more important info:
John and I spent the afternoon on the patio at Minami in Yaletown, thanks to PATIO Vancouver and the Yaletown BIA. In the back courtyard, off the main street, covered by a lush green canopy, we sipped Nojitos (refreshing, non-alcoholic mojitos) to cool off.
For our meal, we sampled the day’s top offerings in the Minami Premium Zen multi-course menu that included our favourite: Aburi sushi for the second course. To top off the dining experience, two desserts: a coconut mango creme brulee and a yuzu raspberry semifreddo.
