West Vancouver’s Harmony Arts Festival is always an annual favourite featuring various events, concerts, craft markets and more. Last Wednesday it was time for the week’s signature gala event as the third annual Best of the West took place on a perfectly picturesque Ambleside Pier. This evening soiree celebrated the best BC has to offer with 13 North Shore restaurants pairing up with 13 different BC wineries. Guests were able to vote on their favourite combination, with the winning restaurant and winery team being crowned as “Best of the West” for 2013.
