The Downtown Surrey BIA would like to say thank you to all who came out to the Long Long Table last week at Civic Plaza – we had a great time, and we hope you did too!
We lined up 25 (!) fold-up tables side-by-side to create one massive table, which sat almost 200 people for the community event.
Civic Hotel catered the event, with Chef Liban Shirwa and his team preparing the full five-course meal. First up was a charcuterie board, followed by a delicious summer frisée salad and then a panna cotta palate cleanser. The main course soon followed, with spiced vindaloo beef accompanied by potatoes and a rice pilaf. A delightful vanilla bean mousse dessert finished off the meal, leaving stomachs very full in the process.
Steve Dooley was our MC and guided us through the evening – introducing all the meals and directing the games that were played in between certain courses, such as our trivia game.
Swing Patrol! provided musical entertainment throughout the night, with their upbeat swing music adding a nice atmosphere to the night.
This event could not have happened without the support of all our sponsors – we are grateful for all of your help in making the Long Long Table 2019 possible.
