Join us and explore the East Village neighborhood and tantalize your taste buds at selection of restaurants, cafes and a brewery. This evening tasting extravaganza is on Wednesday April 18 from 6pm until 10pm and is presented by Vancouver Foodster.

Each restaurant/cafe will be serving up Tasting Plates and Tasting Cups for guests to enjoy and you will have a chance to visit many different types of restaurants throughout the event, meet some new food loving friends, meet the chefs, and learn about each of the participating restaurants.
