Ain’t no fiesta like a cocktail fiesta! Celebrate Día de Muertos with a twist (of lime)! Join the Fairmont Pacific Rim as they collab with Mexico City’s famous Baltra Bar (ranked among the world’s best) to bring their cocktail expertise to the award-winning Botanist Bar (November 2) and The Lobby Lounge & RawBar (November 3) for two nights of themed drinks, live music and pure party. No reservations, just bring your fiesta spirit and let’s toast to the macabre!
Add some Korean flavour to your cooking with a fun-filled cooking class led by Chef Heedong. From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. get ready to go Gangnam Style with your cuisine, mastering dishes like LA galbi (grilled short ribs) and vegetable japchae (glass noodles). Expand your at-home culinary chops with authentic Korean recipes, a traditional barley tea pairing and more fun than that Psy song (and that song is a crowd fave—move aside Macarena, there’s a new wedding reception anthem in town!)
