On August 10, the popular Pirate Pak Day returns to White Spot! This is the only day of the year when the adults get to order their own Pirate Pak. For each Pirate Pak sold on that day, White Spot will donate $2.00 to Zajac Ranch for Children.

White Spot will be serving a limited menu on August 10. The Adult Pirate Pak menu has changed slightly this year; you’ll have 5 options: the Legendary Burger, Bacon Cheddar Burger, Mediterranean Chicken Burger, Sriracha Portobello Veggie Burger or Sriracha Goat Cheese Turkey Burger. They are served in a pirate boat, and come with bottomless fries, coleslaw, a soft drink, a scoop of ice cream and a chocolate “gold coin”. Not a burger fan? There will also be a selection of other sandwiches, entrees and salads for you to choose from – just order the boat on the side!

I have been a fan of this charity initiative. The longest I waited was 1.5 hour just to order my own Pirate Pak. If you have never participated before, now is your chance! I’m giving away two $25 gift cards to White Spot so you can bring a date with you on Pirate Pak Day. Yes, two chances to win!

In its 22nd year, the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Vancouver is adorned by more than 40 gingerbread houses built by amateur and professional bakers, as well as college and high school students enrolled in culinary arts programs.

I noticed that there are more non-traditional gingerbread houses this year. In particular, I was quite impressed by this coral reef display made by the David Thompson Secondary School Cafeteria. What a unique interpretation of a “house”:
