Friends & Company, in partnership with Sequoia Company of Restaurants and The Teahouse in Stanley Park, invites you to our first-ever New Year's Eve celebration! Please join us on Thursday, December 31 at Vancouver's landmark Teahouse Restaurant in Stanley Park for an unforgettable evening of fine dining and exceptional entertainment, all in support of the anti-bullying and safer schools initiatives of Out in Schools.
This event will be hosted by none other than Joan-E, Vancouver's most recognizable drag queen:
Tickets to this formal event are an incredible value at just $125 (plus tax and gratuities) and include a five-course menu, as shown below (vegetarian, gluten-free and other special meal requirements can be accommodated). Enjoy a complimentary sparkling wine toast at midnight and 100% of Stanley Park Brewing beer sales throughout the evening will go directly to Out in Schools!
Entertainment will be provided by a live vocalist and band with special performances from Ballet BC and Vancouver Opera. Each ticket holder will have opportunities to win fabulous door prizes and to participate in a 50/50 draw and silent auction, benefitting Out in Schools. Please remember: Gratuities are not included so please be sure to tip your servers ... they gave up their New Year's Eve to make sure we have a great time!
Note: Friends & Company ticket holders will have full access to the entire restaurant venue, but we will be seated together in a large private dining area within the Teahouse. The silent auction and 50/50 draw will be open to all guests, including other Teahouse patrons, but only Friends & Company ticket holders will be eligible to win door prizes.
Complimentary trolleybus service will be provided continuously throughout the night from various downtown locations to and from the Teahouse. It will offer pick up and drop off service in the Davie Village (at The Sandman Suites at Davie & Bute), in Coal Harbour (at The Westin Bayshore), and at Burrard and Robson (at The Sutton Place Hotel). The service will run approximately twice an hour starting at 8:00 pm. The last return trip from the Teahouse will depart at 1:45 am.
19+ only please.
