      Chambar (568 Beatty Street), Vancouver’s best overall restaurant according to Straight readers, will stay open for 24 consecutive hours this Easter weekend (March 26 to 27) as part of a collaboration with local charity Universal Outreach.  

      The restaurant will begin its 24-hour #SweetRelief service at 4 p.m. next Saturday (March 26), which will continue until 4 p.m. the following day (March 27).

      All proceeds from the à la carte dinner menu (available between 4 p.m. and 4 a.m.) and brunch menu (available between 4 a.m. to 4 p.m.) will go toward Universal Outreach’s Advanced Beekeeper’s Training Program and the Liberia Pure Honey initiative in Africa, which offer viable beekeeping training for rural farmers in Liberia that allows them to improve their lives and more effectively support their families.

      Both brunch and dinner services will feature honey as a key ingredient and include plates such as Chambar’s popular lamb tajine, gaufre au saumon, Mama Rizk dessert, and the El Chupacabra cocktail.

      The restaurant hopes to raise $50,000 and is challenging local businesses to match each dollar that the staff is able to raise. Interested donors can pledge their support online.

      #SweetRelief diners will also receive a complimentary vial of imported Liberia Pure Honey, while supplies last. For more information about Chambar’s #SweetRelief event, click here.
