From Nov 1 – 30, nine leading Railtown restaurants and cafes are offering an exclusive feature with proceeds from the sale of each item earmarked for programming at the Powell Street Getaway through Dine Railtown.
The Powell Street Getaway at 528 Powell Street, is a peer-led resource centre that supports people living with chronic illnesses, addictions and/or mental health challenges. Funds raised from Dine Railtown will be put directly towards Powell Street Getaway programming and initiatives.
Dine Railtown 2019 is supported by the Strathcona Business Improvement Association of which the Railtown neighbourhood resides.

Dine Railtown 2019 Media Preview
At a recent media tour, I had a chance to visit The Railtown Cafe, The Uncommon Cafe and Ask for Luigi to try their Dine Railtown 2019 features.
An exciting highlight of the Dine Railtown initiative is the launch of a custom illustrative map (see first photo above) drawn by local artist Tom Froese that highlights both well-known and hidden culinary gems located within the Railtown neighbourhood.
