The evening will also showcase a cocktail “shakedown” competition for the Derek Vanderheide trophy. Six of Vancouver’s top bartenders including Grant Sceney (Fairmont Pacific), Trixie Blumel (Shangri-La), and Katie Sita (CinCin), will face off against one another to create the best Argentinean-inspired cocktail.
There will also be a raffle and a silent auction to bid on a variety of unique items.
Tickets for the event are $75 each with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the BC Hospitality Foundation. As a bonus, ticket prices include admission to the Eat! Vancouver festival and access to a special rate for a stay at the Fairmont Waterfront.
