PHOTOS: Fear And Loathing From Inside The Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards

That was interesting, and I don’t mean the lady pictured above walking around in a cocktail dress made out of meat. The somethingth annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards went down deep in the colon of the Wall Center yesterday, and boy are my teeth still covered in beer fuzz. It was the most fun I’ve had with a drink in my hand for a while, and as always it’s cool seeing so many restaurants get the recognition they deserve (hat tips to La Quercia, Tannis Ling, Jack Evrensel, Craig Stanghetta, Simon Kaulbach, Giovanni Giardino and all the other podium takers). The results – some of them always questionable – are never everyone’s cup of tea, but us judges do our individual best to ensure the best get their due. If I had a dime for every befuddled person who asked me “how the fuck does Bacchus in the Wedgewood even qualify for Best Bar/Lounge?”, I’d probably be able to buy a drink there.
