VANCOUVER— Vancouver looks its absolute best on a summery day, and what goes better with a beachside sunset than a food truck festival? Eater Vancouver despatched photographer Robyn Hanson to capture the action at the Sunset Beach Social, which will be rolling into town every Friday until the end of the summer. If all that sunshine is inspiring you to head out for a spot of al fresco dining, then this map of where to get the best gourmet picnics in the city is just what you need. Posh hampers ahoy! [EVAN]
SEATTLE— Walden, a wine pop-up from a sommelier with a serious resume starts tonight in Pioneer Square. Luke Wohlers (The Herbfarm, RN74, Eleven Madison Park) is pouring 25 wines after-hours at a 12-seat bar inside the excellent Thai lunch spot Little Uncle. Walden happens every Friday and Saturday night through the end of September. [ESEA]
SEATTLE— This week, Eater Seattle reported on two restaurants currently under construction. Serving house-ground meat patties, boozy shakes, and greens, Giddy Up Burgers is opening in between Fremont and Ballard in early August. Looking ahead to December, Capitol Hill's Auto Row is the future home of Nue, a street food concept that will seat 30 and serve its full menu (and liquid nitrogen ice cream) from a walk-up window.

VANCOUVER— Seasonal treat alert! BC blueberries are everywhere in the city right now so of course, Vancouver's chefs and bartenders have got busy. From cocktails and ice cream to salads and pies we've mapped where you can indulge in non-stop blueberry madness across town. Meanwhile, beloved Vancouver restaurant Chambar is on the move to a new location — next door. Take a look inside and prepare to swoon over the stunning private roof terrace. [EVAN]
