YVR Foodies at Yaggers – October 12, 2014
Do you love food?
Would you like to meet other Vancouver food lovers?
YVR Foodies is a community of food lovers who visit a differentÂ restaurant around the city each month. We have a private room with guest speakers & performers and light food is included so you get to try some of the best items from each restaurant.
Our October YVR Foodies event will be at Yaggers Downtown with an awesome variety of speakers and entertainment. Trevor Poirier, co-owner, will tell the story of Yaggers. Crystal Lee, Lead Organizer of Vancouver’s Feast Worldwide, will share how the feast bridges food tasting and change making. Lori Weidenhammer will share her passion for bees and beekeeping. This month’s food blogger is Liam Lewis from The Little Locavore!
