Brought to you by Scout Magazine.
In light of our current social and economic circumstances due to the Covid-19 virus, we wanted to reach out to our close friends in the community and chat with them on how they are dealing with this pandemic.
First up today is our loyal friend James Iranzad of Gooseneck Hospitality. If you don't know James, you probably know of his restaurants. Think Wildebeest, Bufala (Kerrisdale and Edgemont), Lucky Taco and Bells & Whistles.
With his knowledge and intimate proximity to the restaurant industry as a restaurateur, his insights were ones we wanted to hear from. We waxed on our own personal experiences so far, government response, community engagement, what we should do next and much much more.
Have a listen as we hope, if anything, this episode may give you some answers, a reprieve from any anxiety you may be feeling or just something to listen to.
Below are some links to a few of the things/topics we discuss.
Stay healthy everyone. We'll be back with more soon.

The F&B Community Relief Fund James brings up.
***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 they just launched this past year 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.
