Candlelight Conservation Dinner

Since 2009, various BC restaurants have teamed up with BC Hydro to encourage energy conservation around our province for the Candlelight Conservation Dinner. This coming Thursday, October 25th, a number of participating restaurants across Vancouver Island will be offering dining specials ranging from free appetizers to 2-for-1 entrees and other featured dining options. And, as the name implies, diners will be indulging by the flicker of candlelight.
