Dinner at The Birdcage - Carlotta Gurl, Joan-E, Coco

Dine Out Vancouver’s event series was composed of a wide variety of events, however none of them were as unique as Dinner at The Birdcage.

For $50 I was dazzled by an incredible drag show with some local talent — a trio of lads in dresses, the lovely Carlotta Gurl, Joan-E and Coco. The sold out show was well received and eye-opening at times as they danced, sang, and stripped off clothes on stage.

With my ticket I was also treated to a glass of bubbly upon entering, cabaret seating and a three course meal from Vancouver FanClub’s $18 Dine Out menu.

With my meal I also indulged in a few beverages, including the Stanley Sour, a bourbon-based cocktail, and their Mojito, both of which were delicious.

This was my first and probably not my last time inside Vancouver FanClub, a liquor primary venue on Granville Street. On a regular basis the venue hosts bands, dance classes, piano bars, fundraiser events and even the occasional “circus”.

The two-level entertainment facility provides an ample amount of seating that ranges from bar stools to couches. Sitting on the cabaret seating I had a perfect view of the show while also being situated right next to the Bourbon Room where the ladies were changing outfits and filtering out of.

The event was a fundraiser for the Vancouver Friends for Life Society, a non-profit organization which enhances the wellness of individuals living with very serious illnesses.
