The Next PechaKucha Night Will Focus on Vancouver Food & Drink

We don’t know if you’ve picked up on it, but here at Scout we love food. What’s more, we not only love people who grow and make food, but we also love other likeminded people who love and talk about food. Naturally, we’re super excited to share the news that the next PechaKucha Night (November 29th) at the Vancouver Playhouse will involve a tasty line-up stories and ideas from creatives across the food and drink industry.
