Multi-Media Event : Project :2012 Jan & Feb

In Modern Times, there have been 220 prophesied “end of the world” dates. December 21, 2012 is the latest and has gained significant attention from many religions and cultures. Primarily, the Mayan Calendar long count ends on this date, and there is accompanying science and fuzzy logic that only fuels theories of the Apocalypse.

Join the Project Series as they take you on a multimedia roller coaster ride of comedy and drama toward Doomsday - December 21, 2012. Watch how humanity handles the question of its own demise through the eyes of an adventuresome traveler, Army scouts, last minute lovers, a bunker of lottery winners and an overconfident survivalist in the Deep South. You are sure to ask yourself, “Is our end in sight?”

The Tipper as Ben R sees it (2009)

The Tipper

The Tipper is the hands on approach of Colin Shandler and a collection of close friends and family.

Colin has worked in restaurants of all shapes and sizes, large chains and small independently run enterprises. He is at heart a food philosopher. Enjoying great food and the company of friends, his love of cooking grew from cooking large dinners for his friends and family.

After working for many years under the watchful gaze of omnipotent owners, Colin decided to share his love of cooking and ideas for a positive dining experience, with all who enter the doors of The Tipper.

Knowing the people who cook your food, and serve your drinks is important, not only so you feel reassured of the quality of the service you are receiving but also to appreciate that we are happy to be here as well as you.

Colin believes that his restaurant should be an organic experience and that things should develop naturally. That is why we listen and respond to your advice, and care what you think of the food.

Our kitchen has people who are working for a reason, a purpose and a passion.

We hope that you enjoy your time with us and if you have questions about the menu, renting the Review Room or anything else please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you

And Enjoy The Tipper.

Rare are my trips to Vancouver..rarer still is my need to search for a site to rave about somewhere that became one of the highlights of a recent trip but here goes... As unassuming as it is inviting this place is a must visit for those who like the informal dining and drinks experience but what made me return again and again is the polite, warm and efficient customer service displayed by all the staff..each and every one a credit to the proprietor Colin Shandler! Monday night is a blast and well worth the look..and provides a fantastic outlet for talented musicians to show Vancouver what they are made of! A unique idea thats sure to catch on..from local art to event rooms showcasing talent to fabulous food served by wonderful people I suggest you get to Tipper pretty fast and not miss out on a truely unique experience..alas I live in Dublin, Ireland so my visits maybe few but if your in the area pop in tell them the Irish girl sent ya! Im sure you'll thank me ;-)

I'm admittedly a bit of a fish out of water. I came up to Vancouver from San Francisco to take a tour of UBC, and on my very tight budget, opted for the Day's Inn Metro. Across the street, I stumbled across The Tipper almost completely by accident, and I'm incredibly glad that I did.

I've come to The Tipper now for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and I think it's safe to say that this is the best that it gets. The staff is incredibly sweet and friendly, the atmosphere is wonderfully cozy and inviting, and the food is just fantastic. Hands down the best omelet I've ever had, and that's saying quite a bit! The food is very reasonably priced, and the soothing overhead music is nicely complimented by some very cool paintings on the wall, creating a very welcoming atmosphere.

From the fantastic food to the wonderfully kind staff, The Tipper is very easily a five out of five stars, and the reason I signed up for a Yelp account!

Thanks for the comments!

Thanks for the comments !

You are right, and it's Agreed this isn't a flashy restaurant website - quite possibly the worst website ever! This blog is more for updating events for those who check us out.

The Tipper concept is simple, it isn't about the flash, or being fancy - just fresh... in a 50 + year old location.

We choose to prepare everything in house such as our sauces & dressings, hand cut breakfast potatoes & fries, as well as produce & proteins, the informational blog too. We are a small community driven diner that focuses 98% of its time on the quality products we serve to happy people, with a return to "slow food". No celebrity chefs here. Although a Tipper Restaurant website is being built, this blog is more for the events side of things showcasing a few of the artists & singer songwriters who have enjoyed our review room.

The Tipper's menu will change every few months to reflect the best of the season. Look for it! in the near future we will have links to the menu. Until then please send us a e-mail or call and we will fax it or e-mail it to you.

Input is valued at the Tipper! A few of the most popular menu items were inspired from suggestions by guests who frequent The Tipper.

a note from Church of Jerks

Where Jerks drink (and eat).

The Tipper has been more than generous to the Jerks over the last almost year. We highly recommend you take a trip to 2066 Kingsway in Vancouver to check it out.
When you get there, ask for Colin and tell him you are a Jerk. Quote your favorite line from a Jerks video and you will get a free “strange look”. Seriously, lets support the little guy and spread the word.

$ 9.99 Burger & Pint Tuesdays & Saturdays

Every Tuesday & Saturday!

Burger & Pint for $9.99 - Cliff & Ed's blacken chicken, veggie or hand pressed beef!
