Indulge Nelson

Taking local tastes to a new level on May 7 with {vurb}

Nelsonites take pride in quality. Good powder, good trails, good paddling, good coffee, good beer and great food.

On May 7, the Nelson Star’s arts and culture publication {vurb} will be sponsoring Indulge Nelson which is your opportunity to celebrate the city’s great restaurants.

Indulge Nelson is a celebration of our restaurants aimed at supporting our restaurateurs and business owners, and to raise funds for the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy.

“When I was living in Vancouver, Dine Out Vancouver was like Christmas,” said {vurb} editor Megan Cole. “I love to try new food and new restaurants, but it went beyond food to supporting the community.”

Running from May 7 to 9, restaurants all over Nelson will be offering a unique prix fixe (fixed price) menu ranging from $15 to $45.

“It has been so amazing to see all the restaurants who were excited to participate in Indulge,” said Cole.

Over 18 restaurants are participating including: Cucina Royale, Main Street Diner, Ric’s Lounge and Grill, Baba’s Indian Cuisine, Bibo, Itza Ristorante and Pizzeria, King’s Family Restaurant, Dominion Cafe, Jackson’s Hole, Kurama Sushi, Sages Tapa and Wine Bar, Finley’s Irish Bar and Grill, Louie’s Steakhouse and Lounge, Uptown Sportsbar, Epic Sushi/Funky Monkey Burger Bar, Relish, Nelson Underground, All Seasons Cafe and Outer Clove.

“There really is something for everyone,” said Cole. “It’s a great opportunity to eat at restaurants you wouldn’t ordinarily go to or maybe you want to go to an old favourite and have something you missed.”

Ten per cent of the proceeds raised by Indulge Nelson will go to the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy.
