A few weeks ago I wrote about a new book coming out called Drinking Vancouver, which is about great places to drink hereabouts. I hadn’t got my hands on it yet, but I still wrote about it because it was said to have a strong focus on BC beer. Also, I knew it was written by John Lee, author of the Lonely Planet Vancouver City guides, so it must be good.
Last week, Emily from Touchwood Editions, publishers of the book, let me know that there is going to be a launch party for Drinking Vancouver at the Alibi Room on Thursday the 28th from 6-8PM. There will be books on sale and you may even get to meet the author. Even better, this event is open to all comers. Check out the Facebook page for the event here.
ABOUT THE BOOK
With sharp, witty reviews of the best spots in town to slake your thirst, DRINKING VANCOUVER is the pocket-sized booze bible for locals and visitors craving a night out on the town. Written and compiled by travel and feature writer John Lee, this book is handily divided into eleven neighbourhoods from the heritage bars of Gastown to the slick joints of Yaletown to the gritty pubs of the Downtown Eastside. You’ll find special sections with top drinking, dining and ambience suggestions, as well as recommended watering holes for the next time you’re on the road in other parts of British Columbia.
With Vancouver’s long-overdue bar renaissance upon us, this is the first hands-on guide to toast the city’s newly hot bar scene.
Maybe I’ll see you there?
