A Sportsman’s Dinner With Ronnie Whelan at The Butcher & Bullock

by Andrew Mcfee

Earlier this year, the Butcher and Bullock was delighted to welcome the Liverpool FC Official Supporters Club of Vancouver into the Donnelly family.

Every Liverpool FC game that is broadcast on television is shown at the Butcher and Bullock – regardless of the time of the game. Early starts, late starts, weekdays, or weekends – It doesn’t matter. We show them all.

Liverpool FC is a massive football club with a worldwide following. The club has many years of history and is the most successful British football clubs of all time. It has had many great players over the years. Liverpool FC supporters are also renowned as being passionate about their team, and knowledgeable about their sport.

We were amazed at first to see the passion and excitement of the Liverpool fans as they filled our pub rain or shine, and cheered their team on. Now, we expect nothing less.

Liverpool takes on local rivals Everton in the Merseyside Derby on May 5th at 5:30am, and we expect a full house, as the Reds take on and (and hopefully defeat) their local neighbors.

Fast forward to 22nd June, 2013 – and something spectacular will be happening. A Liverpool FC and Ireland legend, Ronnie Whelan, is flying into Vancouver to attend an evening with the Liverpool FC Vancouver supporters. Ronnie will be talking about his time with Liverpool FC; a period when he, and Liverpool, won many trophies and championships. He will also be taking questions and answers from the audience.

We have been working hard with the Liverpool FC Supporters Club to make this a superb event for all Liverpool FC fans in Vancouver. The event will not only feature Ronnie Whelan, but will include dinner and a pint (courtesy of our friends at Carlsberg) and a number of great prizes – including signed Liverpool FC Jerseys, and other memorabilia. There will also be live music of course, featuring some great Liverpool FC songs from history.

Don’t miss out on this fantastic event! Come on down to the pub for a night to remember!

Tickets for the event are priced at $49, and more information on the event, as well as online ticket reservation/purchasing, can be found at the Liverpool FC Vancouver website – http://www.lfcvancover.ca
