This Jan. 24-26, as part of Dine Out 2012, Vancouver is introducing Street Food City. Eight of the city’s top food trucks will come together in the same place for a three-day street food extravaganza. Here are the details:
The setting for Street Food City is the north plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery, on West Georgia Street, between Howe and Hornby Streets (until recently, the scene of the Occupy Vancouver protests). The event will run from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Jan. 24, 25 and 26. Given the central location, and the general buzz about street food in the city, expect things to be pretty busy.
Although Vancouver is synonymous with rainy weather, a hot summer day is what makes this city’s tourism industry first rate. Vancouverites know that a day without a downpour is a day to take advantage of the great outdoors. And what better way to soak up the beautiful sites than on a restaurant patio accompanied by a hot dish and a cool cocktail. The following list of 25 best restaurant patios offers numerous great places to escape the usual culinary confines this summer.
