Gastown Spring Shop Hop
Today's warm weather should be a wake up call to restock your closet for spring. Lucky for you, Gastown's spring shopping bonanza is happening twice a year and will take place this Thursday, April 12th from 5-9pm. Besides special sales and the odd glass of champagne that you can sip while browsing, clothing stores are also offering food and drink coupons to area restaurants. This means South American tapas at Clough Club, Carolina barbecue at Peckinpah, steak and seafood at Pourhouse, Southern comfort food at Revel Room, and charcuterie at Salt Tasting Room, to name but a few of the culinary gems in the area. So take a walk through Vancouver's funkiest neighbourhood, grab a pair of new spring weight jeans for yourself and some sexy heels for your girlfriend or wife, and top it off with dinner and a cocktail. It will be the cheapest time all year to do the leisure trifecta of eating, drinking, and shopping. More information available on the Gastown Business Improvement Society's website.
