Another night, another tweet up!
This time it took us out of town…all the way across the Lions Gate Bridge to West Vancouver! Beachside Forno (@beachside_forno) is in the heart of the Ambleside neighbourhood, easily located on Marine Drive so my friend, Brian (@br_webb) and I decided to take Transit. This was our first visit but the restaurant is instantly warm & inviting and although it was dark we could tell that there would be a great view from the back patio, overlooking the water and Stanley Park beyond.
The Beachside crew has tasting bites of their great pizzas for the guests to sample…with ‘Forno’ in your name your pizzas better be good and these lived up to the name. Crispy, simple and very tasty! Skyy Vodka & Granville Island Brewery kindly donated some of their product so the minimal charge for drinks was donated to support Movember for Prostate Cancer awareness. I’d also ordered a ‘Beachside chicken burger’ which was very nicely topped with pesto, portobello mushrooms and provolone, accompanied by a very nice salad of mixed greens. All the food from the menu looked excellent.
Organizer Jennifer Kemshaw (@jkemshaw) did a great job of getting the word out to a variety of Tweeps and Facebookers to come down, get a taste of the Beachside Forno experience and meet each other. Besides meeting Jennifer for the first time, I got to meet @604homesguy @AliciaHollywood @rezg23 @HeadtotheNet @brandanprice and reconnect with @jessebowness @Lev_ivy again. We all look forward to catching up again at the next tweetup. Perhaps another at Beachside Forno?
