The GOODS from Como Taperia
Vancouver, BC | Three Mount Pleasant neighbourhood restaurants are coming together to raise funds for charity during the holiday season. AJ’s Brooklyn Pizzeria (325 East Broadway), Como Taperia (201 East 7th Ave), and Main Street Brewing (261 East 7 th Ave) are offering a series of specials for the month of December with $1 from each item going towards BabyGoRound, a non-profit that helps new parents with young children.
“The Mount Pleasant neighbourhood is a growing community, and we wanted to do our part in spreading the word about the area and give back at the same time,” says Nigel Pike, operations manager and owner of Main Street Brewing Company. “Each of the locations is known for something different. AJ’s obviously has the Brooklyn vibe, Como Taperia is influenced by Spain, and at Main Street Brewing, we are all about Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant. We hope people will check out each location and maybe even in one night!”
The Mount Pleasant “crawl” includes:
Two pizza options
The Madrid (V): features paquillo, mushrooms, and guindilla peppers, finished with a smoked paprika cream sauce, and The Seville (M): features pickled anchovies, serrano ham finished with cooked spinach and manchego cheese
L.I.G&T (Long Island G&T) – Resurection Gin, East Van Vodka, Pisco, Ms. Betters Cola Bitters, Faux Lime Juice, Mediterranean Tonic (available at all three locations)
Custom beer brewed with Seville oranges, hazy IPA (available at all three locations)
BabyGoRound is dedicated to providing families in need with baby gear and other essential items for their infants and toddlers.
“There are so many young families in Mount Pleasant, and we really wanted to support an organization that helps them, which is how we found BabyGoRound,” adds Shaun Layton, partner at Como Taperia.
The Mount Pleasant “crawl” begins December 1 and ends on December 31, 2019.
