The GOODS from Sai Woo
Vancouver, BC | In honour of Chinatown Cultural Day on Sunday April 22nd, neighbourhood restaurant Sai Woo will be extending its usual hours by remaining open from Noon to 8pm. In addition to their regular menu, expect one-day-only specials including $5 takeaway Chop Suey Boxes and sit-down diners inside enjoying half-priced housemade spring rolls and $5 local draft beer and wine.
Meanwhile, from 1-4pm Chinatown will be bustling with cultural activities including dancing, crafts, food tastings, music and ceremonies. This means that you can enjoy your Chop Suey lunch to-go amid the festivities, or plan a meal pit-stop and/or a drink or snack break at the restaurant, which is located in the heart of Chinatown at the historic storefront of the original 1925 Sai Woo Chop Suey establishment.
Also nearby at the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver, Mayor Gregor Robertson and Vancouver City Councillors will be holding a special City Council Meeting to give their official apology to the Chinese Community in recognition of the city’s history of discrimination against Chinese people, from 2-3:30pm. Seating for the meeting is first come, first served so it’s recommended to arrive 15 minutes before it commences. We’ll see you there!
