DINER: 2nd Annual “FEASTVAN” Food Fest Sees Eastside Eateries Dishing Good Deals

Hot off the presses from our friends at FeastVan:

Fill your bellies (and pint glasses) with a good conscience during FeastVan starting this weekend. Indulge in a specially priced three-course dinner (or two course lunch) between January 18 and February 3 and $1 from every prix fixe dinner sold will go towards the Vancouver Inner City Back Pack Food Program, a rad initiative that helps kids who do not have reliable access to nutritious food by sending them home from school with healthy snacks that help to see them through the weekends.

We’re talking about good restaurants, folks. Au Petit Chavignol, The Acorn, Bao Bei, Campagnolo Roma, The Cascade Room, East of Main, Eight 1/2 Restaurant & Lounge, El Caminos, Habit, Harvest Community Foods, Les Faux Bourgeois, Nicli Antica Pizzaria, The Parker, Union Bar, and more are on board.

Not only that, but a percentage of the proceeds from every keg of R&B Brewing’s East Side Bitter sold at participating FeastVan restaurants will go towards the Back Pack Program and Les Amis du Fromage will be doing the same for every sale of take home macaroni and cheese. Pat’s Pub will do the same for every sale of it’s awesome Pulled Pork or Beef Brisket Sandwich.

No passes, tickets or coupons are required. Diners may simply visit their favourite participating restaurants throughout the 17 days to enjoy the specially priced prix fixe menus. Advance reservations are strongly encouraged, but walk-ins are appreciated. To make a lunch or dinner reservation, please contact the restaurant directly. Please note that some restaurants do not take reservations.

  1. $1? That doesn’t seem like much – like a $1000 bux maybe over two weeks…but I guess it’s the thought that counts and something is certainly better than nothing. Here’s hoping people drink a lot of R&B Bitter.

  2. Yeah, you’d be better off cooking dinner at home for $5, then donating the remaining $15 to the cause.
    Sounds like another scheme to quel the guilt of spending.

Can You Correctly Identify This Vancouver Restaurant?

Aside from assuring you that the place in question sells food, there are no hints. Why? Because it’s supposed to be hard! Good luck.
