Cider and a Bard

This summer, Vancouver‘s Bard on the Beach’s Shakespeare Festival relaunched after a COVID break and we enjoyed a screamingly funny performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  There’s something fun about being in an open-air theatre for this particular play.  The rustics, a.k.a. Peter Quince’s acting troupe, stole the show by leaning heavily into the silliness of their play within a play.

Of course, what’s a play without dinner and drinks before?  The Cider House on Yew Street, which is mere metres from Kits Beach provided us with a meal.

The Cider House Exterior

This is a vegan restaurant specializing in cider.  You can order a flight of cider with such experimental sounding flavours as “Honeysuckle Rhubarb” and “Mango Mint”.  This is the best way to try new things without having to commit to a full glass.  I’m a beer drinker and they had the most excellent Hoyne’s Dark Matter.

We enjoyed yam fries, mac and cheese and nachos.

You can walk off some of that dinner and enjoy a scenic walk on your way to Bard on the Beach.  It takes about 20 minutes and and to enjoy a 2 km walk with some wonderful views.  You can shortcut it, if you take Whyte Ave.

Let the Show Begin!
