Shades of old Vancouver in the heart of a modern metropolis "Now a fascinating fusion of all its past lives, the ever-vibrant strip - especially between Broadway and Venables - is a people-watching paradise of indie stores, quirky eateries and patio-fronted bars ideal for laid-back urban exploring." - John Lee

Tickets are $60.00 (all food included in ticket price).
