BC Hydro’s Candlelight Conservation Dinner 2012

Follow Me Foodie to BC Hydro’s Candlelight Conservation Dinner 2012

Here we go again! Lights, camera and action! Actually, no wait! It’s so much hotter without the lights! Wait, what?! It’s Friday, I’m allowed those jokes right? Relax. I’m talking about DINNER. That’s right! It’s the 4th annual Candlelight Conservation Dinner brought to us by BC Hydro Power Smart!

So what does this mean? Dinner in the dark! Well not completely, but restaurants will be setting the mood with candlelight instead of bright lights. They want to save energy, so they’re doing it with the lights (almost) off. When were bright lights over dinner sexy anyway? To see the list of participating restaurants – see here.

On October 25th over 100 restaurants will be dimming their lights and taking simple steps to reduce their energy use. I encourage you to dine out this evening to show your support for this energy saving initiative. Restaurants will be offering everything from free appetizers, complimentary desserts, 2-for-1 entrées and other discounts to encourage diners to dine out! For special offers at each participating restaurant – see here.

Whichever restaurant you choose, please aim for public transit, carpooling or environmentally friendly methods of transportation. It’s a collective effort and a big goal. We can get a lot more done with a team effort. The restaurants are doing their part, so let’s do ours.

*Offers valid October 25, 2012 at participating restaurants only. Mention the Candlelight Conservation Dinner at time of reservation or ordering; please contact individual restaurants for any restrictions and/or additional promotions.
