Date Idea: Dine Out Vancouver
Location: All over the Lower Mainland
Price: Starting at $18
In its 10th year, Dine Out Vancouver has grown to be one of the most popular dining events in the area. Hosted by Tourism Vancouver, the event runs from January 20th to February 5th of this year. The main event includes hundreds of restaurants in Vancouver and surrounding areas offering 3 course meals ranging in price from $18, $28, and $38 per person. This is a great way for you and your date to discover a restaurant that you haven't tried before at a decent price, especially when you consider that at some higher end restaurants, you can be looking at a single entree being $25-$35 a plate. So to get a 3 course meal for $38 is a steal.
The second part of Dine Out Vancouver are the "Play" festivals. They have events where you can learn to pair your food with wine, learn about food vendors, see a show with your dinner are more.
The last part, of Dine Out Vancouver is the "Stay" part. Tourism Vancouver has teamed up with the local hotels to offer great deals on hotel packages. So if you're coming from out of town, or just want a romantic night after your dinner, make sure to check out the "Stay" link on the Dine Out Vancouver Page.
Some of these events and restaurants are already starting to book, so make sure to go to the Dine Out Vancouver website.
