Big Night is a yearly event put on by Vancouver Magazine that celebrates the top winning wines from their 4th annual Wine Awards paired with the best restaurants from their 18th annual Restaurant Awards. This is the third year of the event and it brings out the who’s who of Vancouver to the very prestigious Vancouver Club for a night of wining, dining and rubbing elbows with the city’s movers and shakers.
Big Night answers the aged old question of what happens when new age Dot Com meets old age Vancouver money. The answer is: not a hell of lot. This maybe because we decided to dress like old money instead of the Dot Com stereotype. The Vancouver Club is a very old club (founded in 1889) with old traditions and a very strict dress code. While we dressed like old money, we acted like it was Dot Com Pho. We did get some strange looks when we grab some giant champagne glasses to make a toast.
Joining Sarah and me for Big Night were Greg Morgan and his girlfriend Linda, Stephen Fung and his girlfriend Kelly, and Ed Lau, who is single and was hoping to find a Vancouver Club sugar momma. He had a few bites but they were all too old.
