Now brought to by Scout Magazine.
In this fun split episode it thrilled us to bring back on two of our most inspiring previous guests in Max Curzon-Price of Botanist and The Diamond and Dallah El Chami of Superbaba and the Vancouver Food and Beverage Community Relief Fund.
We were excited to check in on Max’s new cocktail giving back initiative, Pine and Palm, where he’s engaged the local bartending community into making delicious cocktails for a cause. The first event took place a few weeks back at The Diamond, with a dollar from each cocktail sold being donated to the local downtown Eastside women’s shelter. They raised just over $5000 dollars at this single event. Props to Max and all those who helped make this happened. In seeing the results of his labour, we wanted to discuss with Max where the idea came from, how he sees it developing and when can we look forward to the next night.

With Dallah El Chami, we were very excited to chat with him on how the Vancouver Food and Beverage Community Relief Fund was going since the last time we spoke. He dished on their plans for the future, how they plan to give away their funds and much much more.
As well, with the imminent arrival of Superbaba on Main Street, we wanted to know more of what was in store for his widely popular middle eastern restaurant. With an aim to open for early November, for take away only to start, Dallah shared with us his philosophies on opening a restaurant, the struggles of COVID-19 and his managerial style.
