Hi, This message is for Amy Pennington host of Check Please, in Seattle. If she, or any of your crew decide to do a show from Vancouver BC, I'd love to be a Guest. I'm an adventurous eater, and often check out new & interesting restaurants. If you are looking for someone to host a local version of "Check Please", I'd love to! One of my new favorites is EAST is EAST (2 locations in Vancouver).

Thank you, and have a good day,
Charmaine
