Downtown Vancouver Brunch Crawl 2015

opener

On January 25, 2015 we presented the fourth crawl in a series of neighborhood brunch crawls in this 2nd year of our brunch crawl series we produced and presented with the Downtown Vancouver BIA and Tourism Vancouver for their Dine Out Festival.  This event was a super success for all who attended. Participants had a chance to visit 8 restaurants through-out the downtown area and taste all sorts of dishes on this unique food crawl.
