Culinary Happenings Aug. 4-5, 2012
From all of us at CTKB - we hope you have a great August long weekend! Take some time to enjoy the weather and check out some of these events. Don't forget to come visit us!
Powell Street Festival
We've celebrated Greek, Caribbean, and Scandinavian culture - let's not forget Japanese! Vancouver has a terrific Japanese community, fostered through many generations in BC. Discover Japanese art, food, dance and other cultural offerings at the Powell Street Festival. This is a great opportunity to try Japanese cuisine (if you've never had it) or discover some new dishes (for those more well versed in the cuisine). There is certainly something for everyone at the festival.

Take a walk on the green side and indulge your inner vegetarian at Veg Fest happening on Granville St (between W Georgia and Robson).

Go a little healthy before heading over to the BBQ Cook-off the next day.
