Champagne & Caviar Event Vancouver, BC

July 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Last month, we were in the Granville Street market on our way to our Edible BC event when D happened to see a wine store. D being D, she stopped to go in and in the window, she saw a poster for a “Champagne & Caviar” evening to support amateur sport at the Vancouver Rowing Club. Now, we could hardly call this event the ‘Bon Vivant’ blog if we were going to pass up on an opportunity like this.

It was great! We met our friends M and K when it started at 7:30pm at the VRC clubhouse; the event was organized by Liberty Wine Merchants and sponsored by Riedel (among others). It was a big soiree type of event in the VRC clubhouse in Coal Harbour. One big room, full of tables of people filling up your champagne flute with different Champagnes, Prosecco, and sparkling wines from around the world. Also served were some delicious little canapes with Caviar on them, and while this wasn’t exactly the Beluga they served at the French Laundry, it was still a delicious, crispy, salty treat to offset the sweetness of all that Champagne.

By 9:00pm, the event was almost over – we had certainly had (more than) our fill of bubbly, and they had an auction for bottles of wine and goodies for which they had been selling raffle tickets throughout the night. We didn’t win, but alas that wasn’t the point. We had a beautiful, sunny Vancouver evening, overlooking the beautiful cityscape you can see from Stanley Park, we had some delicious wines, but most importantly, we had some good times and some great laughs with our friends. What else is the summer for?
