A few weeks ago, Rich and Arielle won a custom Surprise Me date night! I couldn't have been happier with the lucky winners. They're a lovely, fun couple, and I was super excited to work with them. Their prize was well timed too, because Arielle's birthday was on the horizon. So over the last several weeks, Rich and I have been planning and scheming to make Arielle's birthday one she'll never forget. Last night we put our plans into action!
After finding out that the couple were foodies, I started thinking of all of the delicious things they could do. I ran into a bit of a snag with organized activities... Monday is a slow night apparently. So I set about designing a customized activity for them - a private, self-directed foodie walking tour of downtown Vancouver. Thankfully the rain held off, though I made sure Rich had an umbrella just in case!
I booked 3 awesome bar/restaurants for them and (according to their post-date report), the establishments more than lived up to my expectations! (A list of their stops is at the end of the post).
While they were out, I spent part of the afternoon in their hotel room, busily transforming it for the final surprise.
Continuing the Foodie Tour theme, I prepared a mini-desserts tray with a variety of tasty treats from great places around the city.
I had a ton of fun helping Rich give Arielle an unforgettable birthday surprise. A heartfelt thank you to my lucky winners, and to the excellent establishments that made up their Foodie Tour of Vancouver!
