Foodies and theatre lovers unite for the Firehall Arts Centre’s annual fundraiser EAT.DRINK.PLAY, an unforgettable evening that celebrates locally produced food, drink and performance, on June 18th, from 7-10pm. This is a wonderful event that I attended last year, it’s a delectably artful celebration of local food, drink & performance!
Created to highlight the foodie revolution happening in the Firehall’s backyard, EAT. DRINK. PLAY. features an incredible assortment of live performances around the building, paired with the best food & drink our neighbourhood has to offer. There will be craft beer samples from Parallel 49 Brewing, small-batch spirits from Odd Society Spirits, signatures samples from more than 10 of the neighbourhood’s hottest restaurants (see below), a silent auction bursting with prizes, and more!
PERFORMANCES –An energetic, knee slapping, toe tapping contemporary Metis jig solo by Jeanette Kotowich, street dance viewed through the contemporary kaleidoscope with OURO Collective, a cameo from Andrew Wheeler as the Honourable Stephen Harper (PROUD), an excerpt from Lascivious Something starring Kayvon Kelly and live music from the upcoming musical Love Bomb.
All proceeds from the event enable the Firehall Arts Centre to continue its mission to bring cutting edge theatre and dance to the heart of Vancouver.
