This also means that spring-y food events are starting to pop up, which is something we can definitely get behind.

From a cherry blossom-themed afternoon tea to Vancouver Cocktail Week, there are plenty of events to check out in and around the city this week.

Here are the best food and drink events happening in Vancouver from March 6 to 12.
