Vancouver Day 5ย 

Soo I’m about two weeks behind here but I’ll try remember! 

We worked until check out then drove back from Harison Hot Springs to White Rock where we were hoping for some oysters. No luck – there was a red tide which had wiped them all out! Had some awesome mussels and tuna though. 

Back in Van I smashed out some more work then got ready for Diner en Blanc. Three years ago I did the PR for the event and Amanda and I had been invited to do it again. We were both keen to see where it would be and I just wanted to get dressed up and enjoy the atmosphere for a while. Lucky I ached a white dress – just in case.  

We helped with setup & soon enough the guests started flowing in. The event was held in Canada Place in downtown Vancouver and although it’s a pretty venue, I don’t think it flowed very well. Nonetheless it was a beautiful sight to see, as always. 

We drank a fair amount of red wine in the media tent (until they ran out) then cabbed to meet Bahram for dinner. I had the most incredible pasta at Yaletown Cactus Club. Butternut tortellini in burnt butter with poached prawns. OMG. 

   
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
 

An enchanted evening – Diner en Blanc

Diner en Blanc Vancouver was an INCREDIBLE evening.

For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, Diner en Blanc originated from Paris and is a secret white party.

Guests are asked to dress in white, being white tables, chairs and picnics. There are options for dinner to be provided and tables to be setup.

There is a secret location that nobody finds out until they arrive at the destination. 6 tour leaders are picked to meet guests at different points in the city and they are told where the location is about half an hour before they are due there. Guests travel by public transport and then descend as a sea of white on the park. One group even arrived by ferry!

Lucky for me the company I work for were looking after the PR for the event so I was aware of the location well before and all the exciting details.

This year for Vancouver, there were 12,500 people on the wait list for tickets and only 2,500 tickets available!

Live music all evening and flowing drinks, it’s spectacular to watch.

I love events like this!

Anyway, once again, pics says more than I do.

I was too intoxicated to take any decent photos at the after party, but it was inside Science World in the interactive area – awesome. What I remember anyway!
