tft double vancouverFor the second year in a row, Mealshare is inviting guests to paint the town orange and dine out for a cause during its ‘Tonight for Tomorrow’ initiative on Wednesday, May 10, to help the Vancouver-based non-profit social enterprise raise some much-needed funds for its mission to end youth hunger.

During the exclusive, one-night-only event, 15 participating restaurants and counting will partner with Mealshare. For every one dollar a patron spends on food at one of these participating restaurants that evening, one dollar will be donated to Mealshare. To mark the occasion, a number of major Vancouver landmarks like BC Place, City Hall, TELUS World of Science and more will be illuminated orange to show support for the second-annual event.

Participating restaurants to date include:

  • Anatoli Souvlaki
  • Bauhaus
  • The Bayside Lounge
  • Brix & Mortar
  • The Emerald
  • Fable (lunch only)
  • The Greek by Anatoli
  • Jamjar Commercial
  • Jamjar South Granville
  • The Mackenzie Room
  • The Oakwood Canadian Bistro
  • Pidgin
  • The Portside Pub
  • Sai Woo
  • Tuc Craft Kitchen

Mealshare regularly partners with hundreds of restaurants in eight cities across Canada that support the charity’s ‘buy-one, give-one’ model, allowing guests who order a Mealshare-branded item on the menu to provide a complimentary meal to youth in need at no extra cost to them. For each featured meal sold, participating restaurants contribute financially to Mealshare, which forwards the funds to its network of partner charities to purchase the groceries and ingredients needed for a meal. The result: buy one, give one — a meal for a meal.

With the help of 14 Vancouver partner restaurants, Mealshare marked the end of its milestone ‘Road to One Million’ meals campaign last November, which counted down to the one-millionth meal the charity has helped serve to youth in need across Canada since its inception in 2013. The non-profit is planning a major expansion this June, by adding over 20 new Vancouver establishments to the Mealshare family of restaurants, including Jamjar South Granville, The Dirty Apron and Bao Down.

Vancouver TheatreSports™ League’s (VTSL) presents Western World

We’ve seen this and it’s absolutely hilarious! Head to the Improv Centre on Granville Island and check out Western World, inspired by the HBO series Westworld.

Each night features a totally new ‘episode’ under the watchful eye and guiding mind of Robert (sometimes Roberta) Ford. Guests begin their Western World adventure with an orientation. “Who are these hosts? Where do they come from? What roles do they play? Where is Western World?” are typical of the many questions that only VTSL’s esteemed Guests can answer. Throughout the first half, Guests help craft the story-line that becomes the basis for the second half of the show. In this artificial world of improvised comedy anything can, and will, happen.

Join VTSL for an evening of ‘laughs without limits’ Thursday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm from April 6 through May 13 at VTSL’s home, The Improv Centre on Granville Island. Tickets on sale now.

Ribfest Canada Day

Five of the city’s top amateur grill masters to get raked over the coals on Canada Day 

RibFest began in 2009 at an East Van backyard BBQ hosted by restaurant industry wine buyer Jeff Curry. Since then, RibFest has been a battlefield where the city’s most ambitious amateur BBQ masters from restaurants across the city meet over the flames of competition.

On Canada Day — Wednesday, July 1stMamie Talyor’s (www.mamietaylors.ca) and Re-Up BBQ (www.reupbbq.com) are joining forces to bring RibFest out of the backyard and into the street — opening the grill games to the public for the first time.

Starting at 4pm, competitors will fire up their grills in front of Mamie Taylor’s restaurant in Chinatown (251 E. Georgia St.) to win bragging rights and the coveted DIY RibFest trophy.

At 7 pm, a judging panel of three experts (Scout Magazine founder Andrew Morrison, Mamie Taylor’s Chef Tobias Grignon and RibFest founder Jeff Curry) will choose the winner. For $5, a limited number of guests can sample the competition ribs and vote for their favourite on a first-come-first-serve basis. (Judging spots are very limited.)

Throughout the afternoon and late into the evening, Mamie Taylor’s will be serving $12 rib plates, smoked by Re-Up and featuring Chef Tobias Grignon’s signature BBQ sauce, alongside coleslaw and macaroni salad. A $5 beer special is available courtesy of Strange Fellows Brewing (www.strangefellowsbrewing.com).
