There's nothing better than a night spent sipping fine wine and sampling fine food. Even better when your entry fee goes to a good cause.
The 12th annual North Shore Food and Wine Festival happens Saturday (October 19) at Park Royal North, with funds supporting the North Shore Youth Safe House.
Sixty bucks gets you the chance to taste of 134 wines from 27 wineries in B.C., California and around the world, including some of my faves, Blasted Church and Okanagan Crush Pad; food from 21 vendors (hello Mangia e Bevi, the Lobby at the Pinnacle Hotel, and Cupcakes); live jazz, Flamenco guitar, and Latin music, plus a $10 cab voucher (if you live on the North Shore).
Be a good citizen. Drink up.
