On Thursday, June 19, the Firehall Arts Centre will present its annual fundraiser EAT.DRINK.PLAY., an unforgettable evening celebrating locally-produced food, drink, and performance. Proceeds will help the Firehall continue to bring cutting-edge theatre and dance to Vancouver.

The event will highlight a selection of food from Gastown and Railtown’s burgeoning food scene graciously provided by 11 local restaurants – Lily Mae’s, Peckinpah, Cadeaux Bakery, The Irish Heather, Salt Tasting Room, Bitter, Hogan’s Alley Cafe, Deacon’s Corner, Mahoney & Sons, Elephant and Castle, and Scent of a Sandwich. Tastings of microbrewery Parallel 49’s seasonal offerings will be available, plus vodka and crème de cassis from Odd Society Spirits, a newly opened small-batch craft distillery in the heart of East Vancouver.
This celebration of all things local will also feature a ‘taster flight’ of live theatre, dance, and music performed around the Firehall space, including an acoustic performance by rising theatre star and three-time Jessie Award nominee Kayvon Kelly (Chelsea Hotel) and a performance by Proud star Emmelia Gordon.

The excitement doesn’t end there. Bid on a fantastic range of items in a silent auction generously donated by local businesses, including Van Dusen Botanical Gardens, TELUS World of Science, PuSH International Performing Arts Festival, Vancouver Fringe Festival, SPUD Urban Delivery and Modo Car Co-Op. Foodies and theatre lovers unite in a fun evening for a worthy cause!
