Last night, Vancouver Elites and their guests were swept away in an evening full of tempting South American tastes at the Regional Tasting Lounge in Yaletown.
From behind the bar, the awesome staff at R.tl poured R&B Red Devil Ale and shook up Pisco Sours, "almost as authentic as the ones hand made by Vanessa G's friend in Lima, Peru. It was the closest it has come in Canada to the real deal!" Swirling with canapes, Thu N lists her "favourites: the chimichurri beef skewers, foie gras, prawns, oysters with bacon, mushroom risotto, and tomato/chorizo... oh wait, was that whole menu?! Kudos to the RTL chefs!"
With the freshest orchids and roses from Garden Party Flowers, yelpers led their partners to the dance floor, where they were treated to a tango lesson by Libertango before Gabriel and Monica took to the dance floor themselves entertaining us with both the tango and milonga. Beautiful!
After taking in the twirling and getting a full nose of swirling from Backyard Vineyards and Desert Hills Winery, we were feeling rather charmed. So much in fact that three lucky winners sashayed away with Romeo and Juliette cigars from Revolucion, a Garden Party centrepiece and a Beauty Basket from Wink.
Until we meet on the dance floor again, SYOY!
