Celebrate what might be the only sunny week for the next six months at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Art’s Beer Meets Grill Dinner, a collaboration with Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers. The seven-course barbecue-focused dinner features dishes like smoked rosemary potatoes, grilled little fish and beer floats (that’s a daring drink made with salted caramel ice cream, chocolate coconut porter, double chocolate chip cookies, rosemary, and sea salt). It’s barbecue season all over again; no apron required.

The bartender lifestyle isn’t exactly conducive to healthy living — late nights, pressures to party, and the realities of bar food can lead to serious health problems. Three months ago, some of Vancouver’s best bartenders started dieting, drinking less and working out in preparation for Bar Spar, presented by the Bartender Boxing Organization and sponsored by Tequila Cazadores. The finals of this bartender boxing match are this Wednesday, and entrance at the door is free.
