Life Food


Eat up, it's a tweetup!

By Julia Dilworth, 24 hours Vancouver


This week was a big one for foodie events, with the Food Cart Fest this past Sunday in the Vancouver False Creek/Olympic Village area (hop, skip and a jump from Dragon Boat craziness!) The weather was a bit grey and some complained the lines were a bit too long, but you couldn't deny the turnout.

There were also some big foodie tweetups and media events, including the Joe Fortes tweetup and rooftop patio party (nicely done), the Cache Bistro #CacheTasting and the highly delicious pizza challenge put on by Restaurants from all over the city were tasked with creating an entirely NEW pizza creation, to be voted on by the hungry public. The #pizzachallenge kicked off June 20 and goes until July 14, so there's still plenty of time to grab a bite and pick your favourite pizza pie!
