Jules Bistro – 10 Year Anniversary with special price menu.

February 6th marks ten years since Jules Bistro first opened its doors and to celebrate Chef/Owner Emmanuel Joinville is offering a special price for the Table D’Hote menu from February 7-12.

To celebrate a decade of cuisine, Jules Bistro will be serving Table D’Hote menu for lunch and dinner from ‪February 7-12. The three-course anniversary menu will begin in classic French style with the choice of a salad or soup du jour. Thereafter guests can choose from three entree dishes; 8 oz ribeye steak in the sauce of your choice, pan seared salmon Provençal or mussels. All entrees are served with frites. To finish, Chef Joinville has prepared a decadent chocolate terrine.

Prices for the Table D’Hote menu are currently $31 for lunch and $33 for dinner. However special occasions call for special measures and guests will be able to enjoy the three-course menu for $21 for lunch and $23 for dinner; these were the original prices set a decade ago when Jules Bistro first opened.

Friday, February 10th marks three wonderful years that Timbertrain has been serving fine roasted coffee in Gastown. They will be serving free filter coffee all day, as well as free snacks during lunch from 11-2. There will also be a raffle in support of the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre with prizes including bags of coffee, Timbertrain merchandise, and coffee brewing equipment. It will be plenty of fun and the gang at Timbertrain would love to see the neighbourhood come out to help them celebrate.

Van Django

Guilt & Co.

Wed. February 8, 2017

Show 9:30pm

Van Django is an acoustic string ensemble made up of four of Canada’s most talented and eclectic musicians; violinist Cameron Wilson, guitarist Budge Schachte, guitarist/cellist Finn Manniche and bassist Brent Gubbels.

Van Django’s music is well-rooted in the gypsy jazz of 1930’s Paris France, but beyond that it’s all pure blue-skying; flights of dazzling fancy, driving rhythms and boundless creativity featuring original compositions and arrangements including humorous mash-ups that showcase their eclectic influences in full regalia.
