About the Vancouver Conversations
The Vancouver Conversations are held approximately every month (except Christmas and summer) over dinner in a small private dining room at the Water Street Café, a Gastown restaurant. The Conversation leaders are from our local group and topics are also chosen by group members. We order and pay for our own food and drink, along with a 17% gratuity, which covers the rental of a private dining room.
If you wish to be added to our Vancouver Conversation e-mailing list, please write to email@example.com -- new people are welcome!
