Dining Out for Life

With my partner in crime, Rick Chung, we attended the Dining out for Life launch party at Coast’s O Lounge. I am a huge fan of Chef Josh Wolfe, but have never been to Coast so I was excited to snack on delicious appetizers and learn more about a great cause: Dining Out for Life.

Dining Out for Life is a restaurant fundraiser in partnership with charities, A Loving Spoonful and Friends for Life along with a long roster of Vancouver and Whistler’s best restaurants to raise money for HIV/AIDS support services in BC. The event takes place on March 29 so make sure you visit a participating restaurant! A complete list is on the Dining Out for Life website: www.diningoutforlife.com/vancouver.

As for the nibbles at the launch party, I finally tried the famous blue Coast cooler cocktail: Gekkeikan draft sake, apricot brandy, blue curacao lemon and orange juice. It was sweet, very slightly fizzy and of the girly drink variety that I love.

The Coast coolers actually went deliciously with the oyster ceviche, perched on pink sea salt on the half shell. I almost thought they were too pretty to eat. The plump kusshi oysters (my fave!) were buttery, fresh with a slightly spicy seasoning sprinkled over top.

I also love the intimate feel of the O Lounge at Coast, a wonderful space to kick back and relax after work.
