Dine Out | Event | Tourism Vancouver’s annual Dine Out festival held in the doldrums of winter and showcases 250 restaurants offering three-course prix-fix menus at accessible price points. Many in the industry see it as a gong-show notable for low-tipping, high-maintenance, bridge and tunnel customers who order hot water and lemon in lieu of wine, but it sure beats standing still in empty restaurants on cold, rainy nights. A highly anticipated fixture on Vancouver’s cultural calendar.

Usage: “Good luck getting a table, dude. It’s Dine Out, for crissakes!”
