West End Brunch Crawl 2015

opener

On January 31, 2015 we presented the fifth crawl in a series of neighborhood brunch crawls in this 2nd year of our brunch crawl series we produced and presented with the West End 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 several restaurants through-out the West End and taste all sorts of dishes on this unique food crawl.
