Oh the weather outside is frightful
(10cm of snow from Arctic outflow, with temperatures near -20 C in some areas)
But the fire is so delightful
(The fiery heat of a hot pot flame at each table at Liuyishou)
And since we’ve no place to go
(Because of the latest Covid restrictions, more places are shuttering and travel is a gamble)
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Man it doesn’t show signs of stoppin’
(Calling for more record breaking snowfall for Vancouver)
And I brought me some corn for poppin’
(Corn and other fresh vegetables available in your Liuyishou hotpot to help you keep you warm)
The lights are turned way down low
(Because it’s cocktail hour and Liuyishou has a new line of them)
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
If you are like me, and are in desperate need of warming up because simply layering on clothes, jackets, and socks is not enough. So thankfully Liuyishou has stepped up to keep diners warm inside and out with a slew of winter promotions, starting with the $28 VIP Card Special.
Applying for Liuyishou’s VIP membership entitles you to a free beef cake on your birthday. See above for literal beef – cake. Card holders also collect points to later exchange for gifts. And once your VIP card expires in a year, membership is renewable at half off.
And when you dine in between 2:30-4:30PM you get 20% off your entire bill. This promotion excludes hot pot bases and drinks.
This perfectly lead into their new happy hour drink menu offering. Special pricing available between 4:30-5:30pm and 9:00-10:00pm daily and all day Tuesday. White, red, or roses at $6 a glass. Beer on tap for $5 a pint, and one of Liuyishou’s new cocktails runs for only $9 (regular price $12).
The five new cocktail offerings are as follows, and are only available at their downtown Robson Street location. Each cocktail is crafted to compliment your hotpot meal and/or help lead into it as an aperitif or out of it as a digestif.
