There are plenty of reasons to dine out: first-class cuisine, stimulating company and, best of all, no clean-up required. But on Mar. 25, there’s an even better reason to make a reservation. Through Dining Out For Life, restaurants across North America are contributing 25 percent of their sales to charities that support people living with HIV/AIDS. Whether you’re craving an impeccable plate from elegant Hawksworth or seafood from high-energy Fish Shack, the over 200 participating restaurants in Vancouver and Whistler are certain to satisfy. Now in its 20th year, the event has raised over $3 million to benefit Friends For Life and A Loving Spoonful. Eating well and doing good—we can’t think of a better excuse to dine out.
