Araxi’s Long Table Series – Coming to Vancouver!

18 Jun

**As of Saturday, July 13, this event has been cancelled due to licensing issues. Refunds or exchanges for the Whistler events are available. So disappointing!**

Now that I have safely secured my tickets, I can share with you more details about Araxi’s Long Table Series that is going to be held over the summer.

Usually the Long Table events take place in the Whistler area but this year we Vancouverites will not have to travel far in order to enjoy some of Araxi restaurant’s delicious seasonal food and BC wine pairings. On Saturday, July 27, Araxi will be bringing their annual Long Table Dinner to Prospect Point in Stanley Park.

2011’s Long Table Dinner at North Arm Farm – nothing short of spectacular!

Having already attended two of these events (one at North Arm Farm and the other at Rainbow Park) and knowing how fun they can be, I am excited to enjoy this experience closer to home. Tickets are $175 each and, yes, that may seem high but keep in mind that includes a cocktail reception, a four course meal, and wine pairings. Plus, how often do you get to have an alfresco dinner with 300 people?

If you do find yourself in the Whistler area this summer, I highly recommend partaking in one of the Long Table Dinners whilst you are there. The North Arm Farm site is breathtaking and you can participate in a tour of the farm whilst you are there.

    It’s too bad they did not secure Prospect point liquor licence before advertising the event.
    What a waste of time and energy both on their part and the customer who had to fax in their request. They have sure dropped the ball on this and will lose many customers who were looking forward to the Prodpect point. They seem to have taken those customers for granted and just assumed that they would go to one of the other events.
    Shame on Araxi
    At least they could offer those Vancouver customers a discount at the resturant to keep them as customers then just treat them indifferently.
    The are greedy guts.
    Very sad for them and bad customer service.

      I must admit that I am also disappointed with the way it was handled too. I have yet to receive a response to my request for a refund so I’m not sure if it has been processed or not. I also think it was a bit presumptuous of them to assume that people who wanted to go to the Vancouver dinner could now afford the trip to Whistler to go to one of their other dinners. I’ve been to many Araxi events and they have been very professional but I agree that this one hasn’t been handled very well at all.
