Episode 13: Saying Goodbye to The Pear Tree, Supporting Food Security, and New Hidden Gems

After 23 years of award-winning fine-dining service in Burnaby, The Pear Tree is closing its doors—not due to the pandemic, but what is becoming a common refrain…an unmanageable lease increase. In the West End, legendary gay nightclub Numbers has been given a new lease—and patio—thanks to next-door neighbour Marquis Wine Cellars. And Fresh Roots Urban Farms is supporting food security through a unique, virtual farm-to-table dinner.
