What a week Lesismore has coming up! I’m not even sure where to begin. Well, as Monty Python always said, “Begin at the beginning” so that’s what I’ll do. (Love those guys!)
Here we go: This Wed Aug 12th, we’re playing a spectacular event at Federico’s Supper Club on Commercial Drive called Tasting Plates. Here’s what they put on their website about it:
Founded by Richard Wolak in 2009 and now into its 6th year, Vancouver Foodster is an online guide that provides ‘Essential Food & Drink Intelligence’ to Vancouver and area. Richard is also the Host of the weekly ‘Best and the Foodiest’ on CKNW 980 and regular guest contributor on Global TV Weekend Morning and Noon News. In 2012 Richard launched the Vancouver Foodster Tasting Plates – an event series of dining tours which take place in different areas of the city featuring a multitude of different ethnic restaurants to eat and mingle. The next stop is this Wednesday, August 12 on Commercial Drive (The Drive)! Join Richard, Federico’s and friends – Fratelli Bakery, Prado Cafe, Via Tevere Pizza, Bonvita Health, and Strange Fellows Brewing – as you embark on a dining tour of tasting plates and drinks, and all starting at Federico’s Supper Club with Lesismore as our music guests. As part of our tasting plate, which features 4 delicious assagini (tasters), we will be offering optional wine pairings for each item (four pairings for $10) with Italian wines represented by Authentic Wine & Spirits. To find out more on event, participants and to purchase tickets, please visit this link. Note: a ticket is required to be a guest for this event. Your ticket works like a passport and allows entry to each establishment and the tasting plates each will showcase. Other food & drink charges (including our wine pairings we will feature) will be billed separately by establishment.
Okay, how fun does THAT sound? Ya, I know. Grab your tickets and get down there! We play from 6:30-9:30pm.
Then it’s off to North Delta on Thursday night to play a fundraiser for the Burns Bog Conservation Society at One20 Pub on Scott Road (at 80th or so)! Lots of people are coming to this event – and it’s a GREAT cause – so One20 is rolling out the WOW! Wine tastings, food stations, live music (that’s me) – FUN!! Please check out the poster for all the details on how to get tickets.
Friday Aug 14th, we’re playing the Bentall Summer Concert Series at 1055 Dunsmuir in the lower plaza near the fountains. Although the Bentall staff will be there picnicking, you may all come by and enjoy the live music! We’re doing one 90 minute show from noon til 1:30pm – yay!!
Friday evening, off we go to Porter’s Bistro in Langley. We LOVE Porter’s – such a great little spot with amazing food! Make a reservation – it’s teensy and gets booked solid! It’ll be our first time there on a Friday – normally it’s Saturday – so let’s show them we can pack the joint! We play from 7-10pm with the amazing Jerry Adolphe (Chilliwack) manning the drum chair. Oh yeah, you don’t wanna miss this!! (604)530-5297 for reservations.
And finally, to cap off a wonderful week of music, we get to play New Westminster’s Gay Pride Gala at The Heritage Grill!! Yay! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this party and we are gonna have so much fun! We play from 8 til midnight and I suggest you make a reservation and get down there early because it’s gonna be absolute craziness. But oh so fabulous!! (604)759-0819 for reservations.
Phew!! So that’s my week. Sunday I’m staying in bed all day. Hahaha! NOT!!
Just a heads-up so you can mark it in your calendars – on Sat Aug 22nd we’re playing The Fairview Saturday Afternoon Dance Party from 4:30-7:30!! You know you wanna! Yes? Yes!!
