The wine festival may not be until March, but if youre religious about
red and worship white, theres an oenological event you must snag tickets
A runaway hit at the Okanagan Wine Festival every year, the Blasted
Church Midnight Service comes to Vancouvers vino week for the very
first time. Not your average mingler, the evening brings to life the
labels irreverent name by having guests commune at Christ Church
Cathedral for soul food from Memphis Blues Barbeque House and soulful
music from the Gospel Experience Choir (who are just as apt to belt out
You Cant Always Get What You Want as they are a classic hymn).
That and sipping on Chardonnay Musqué all night sounds like heaven to us.
Blasted Church Midnight Service ($89), 10 p.m.-12:45 p.m., Saturday,
March 28, 2009 at Christ Church Cathedral, 690 Burrard St., Vancouver,
604-873-3311, tickets can also be purchased online here.
