The restaurant festival Taste of Yaletown returns October 18 through 28—and we've got three gift cards burning a hole in our pocket.

Okay, we know you wanted to put in some hours in the next couple of weeks to work on your Halloween costume, but we have a better suggestion for how to spend your time this October: eating your way through Yaletown. (Then just toss on a witch hat and call it a day.) La Pentola. (Photo by Fuoco) October 18 through 28, Taste of Yaletown returns, featuring 25 of the neighbourhood's restaurants offering up set-price menus at $25, $35 or $45. Slam oysters at Rodney's, taste-test Northern Mexican plates at Fayuca, share some 'za at the Parlour or soak up the view (frog legs in hand!) at Provence Marinaside—whatever pleases your palate, it's a pretty good excuse to wine and dine your way through the 'hood.
