Share Some Fifty Shades

I had the pleasure tonight to take part in the special Valentines Dinner with a Fifty Shades of Grey Theme. It was a memorable evening to actually eat a meal inside the Rainier Provisions cafe used for the first movie scenes with Ana and Christian. Upon my arrival I was able to sit  where Ana would have been seated in the space. From their unique menu I chose the Smoked Salmon and Tuna Crab Cakes, Coq Au Vin and for dessert the Goats Cheese Cheese Cake.  It was a most delicious dinner and the dessert was really spectacular.

The space where Rainier Provisions resides is used as a special event space and also they do special meals during the year. This was only the second time that I had been able to actually be inside the building as its usually closed. You can read more about Rainier Provisions here.  Its a great place to visit in Vancouver BC. Thank you to them for the Fifty Shades special dinner. I loved listening to the soundtrack playing all evening!

They were kind enough to let me have one of their cups and saucers, just like Ana’s!   Also some stickers I plan to giveaway soon.
