GRANVILLE Street has another hot spot place to party thanks to the boys behind Tonic Nightclub. The bar/dance club opened its doors for the first time on Wednesday Dec 18 and the place was packed. Long and narrow, with three separate levels, the club boasts one of the largest mirror balls in North America. Owners Derek Pink and Dave Kershaw, of AuBar fame, have a surefire winner here. Check it out.

And speaking of AuBar, that was the place to be on Thursday Dec 19 as UnWrapped - a fashion show of lingerie, diamonds and fur, delighted and entertained all who attended. Finaldia vodka martinis helped fuel the yuletide fire as event coordinator Traci Myles turned up the heat with her models draped in Diamonds Direct jewels, Bodyone fashions and furs by Snowflake. Proceeds were donated to the Make a Wish Foundation. Hot Stuff. (see photos)
