Now brought to you by Scout Magazine.


In this episode, our 50th, it thrilled us to bring on one of the most respected and hard working hospitality veterans in Vancouver, General Manager Leticia Castro of The Diamond. 

We waxed on all things COVID, reopening her bar, how she’s managed these weird times, staff expectations, her managerial philosophy, stories from the past and much much more. 

We also dived into some politics of the day, the Black Lives Matter movement and treating others with respect. 

This was by far one of our funnest chats as Leticia brought much candour and honesty to the conversation. We no doubt expect that you’ll love this one.


**The Diamond is one of Vancouver's and Canada's best cocktail bars. If you've never been, do check it out. It sits high above Gassy Jack square in the heart of Gastown. The room is beautiful. You'll no doubt see Leticia's smiling face upon arrival. We recommend ordering a Paper Plane. Delicious.


***Scout is one of Vancouver’s leading food and culture magazines. If you’re wanting to learn more about the city’s food and cultural sphere with regards to community news, new restaurant openings, essential guides to some of the city’s best offerings as well as who’s hiring, Scout is where you should go. They also have a sister website called Islandist. Same type of content only Island driven. That’s Islandist.ca.
We’re proud to have Scout as our presenting sponsor as we believe what they “Scout out” is an excellent compliment to what we’re offering here with Track and Food. Do check them out.
