We normally celebrate our Restaurant Awards with a big party—a day of toasting our industry pals, announcing the big winners of the night, stuffing our faces in between swapping hugs and congratulations, and gleefully rehashing the most outrageous and uncensored speeches at the after party.
Obviously, we can't get together this year, but like the restaurant industry is bravely doing, we're adapting.
And so, you're cordially invited to join us for the first-ever digital Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards on September 14, at 2:00 p.m.
It's something the editors couldn't have ever foreseen when they started the program 31 years ago, but here we are, and we're going to make the best of it.
Co-hosted by our very own food editor, Neal McLennan, and our favourite CBC foodie, Lien Yeung, this is the moment where our 2020 Restaurant Award winners will be revealed to the world—you're not going to want to miss a moment.
You'll be able to live-stream the event via Facebook without registering, starting at 2:00 p.m. on September 14, 2020, but if you'd like to watch the event unfold via Zoom, sign up here for your registration link.
Hot tip: if you're one of the nominated restaurants, we recommend registering for the Zoom call in case you're named a winner! We'll be able to throw to you for an acceptance speech in real time. The drama! The chaos! It's classic Restaurant Awards, from the comfort of home.
Pour yourself a glass of something special and join us in toasting our homegrown restaurant talent. We can't wait to dine with you all again.
When: Sep 14, 2020, 2:00 p.m. P.T.
How to watch on Zoom: Register here! Details about the Zoom event will be sent to your email.
