Pop Up Soda Shoppe transports dessert-lovers to 1950s
Swallow Tail Culinary Group, a Vancouver-based food and wine event organizer, is hosting a pop-up dessert festival that will transport diners back to the 1950s. The Pop Up Soda Shoppe takes place on August 30 and attendees and choose between two seating times: from 7 to 9 p.m. or 9 to 11 p.m.
The event will feature a number of local pastry chefs, chocolatiers, ice-cream makers, and confectioners. Cartems Donuterie will be serving its popular Maker’s Mark bourbon-bacon doughnuts and earl grey tea doughnuts, while Earnest Ice Cream will be scooping alcohol-infused ice-cream. Beta 5 Chocolatiers will also be in attendance, as will pastry chef Geoff Van Hassel from Che Baba restaurant, who will be making macarons. The Pop Up Shoppe will also feature alcoholic botanical sodas and milkshakes by Shawn Soole, who is bar manager at Clive’s Classic Lounge in Victoria.
The event will be held at a secret location that is revealed once tickets have been purchased. Attendees are encouraged to dress in 1950’s chic—poodle skirts, fedoras, bow ties, and suspenders.
