"Foodie Card" deal in Vancouver/Whistler

I don't eat at any of these restaurants but if I did the discounted deal would probably be worth it.

  1. interesting - when one clicks on the "list of participating restaurants" (there are at least 3 links) - it comes up as "forbidden" on my computer.

        I didn't have that issue, but I can't say the list ignites me in any way.

          Me three.

          What's funny are all the fitness ads on the right of the page :-D

          update - in all fairness - i emailed them and rec'd very quick polite reply that they are having tech issues at that moment - forbidden takes on a diff meaning ; )

          does anyone look at Groupon? or Living Social?
          possibly places that we might not talk about on here

          Living Social is popular w/ our Portland OR family (i note several Vcvr chows go to PDX) she has good luck w/ hotels etc in SEA and PDX areas - and maybe some breakfasts in those hotels)

          1. Cafe D’Afrique is the only one I'd bother with and then probably once or twice a year at most.

              and maybe for the family breakfast outing for those of us not from Vcvr area and consequently staying in hotel - the Herons Kitchen offer might work well - it's at the Fairmont dot com waterfront hotel location near Canada Place. some tables have partial views - nice atmosphere - in my experience, Fairmont employees are very service oriented - polite - good all-round place for multi-generation family meal

                I was thinking this might be useful for someone who has lots of out of town guests given the current list. And at $45 you'd prolly only have to use it once to get your money back. Dunno anything about the promoters though.

                Cafe D'Afrique always sounded like Cafe Da Freak to me .....

              3. Yikes! I would hate to be a card carrying foodie.
