Yuk Yuk's Opening and BMW Children's Hospital

Oct 8 and Oct 10, 2003

By Catherine Barr


Invitations went out last Wednesday for the grand opening of the new Yuk Yuk's comedy cabaret at the Century Plaza Hotel. The new lounge features hot acts, great people and little cocktail tables with signal button lights that you turn on to get your server.

Meanwhile, Avant Garde studio, BMW Canada and Leone fashions sponsored an evening out at Granville's Skybar to support Children's Hospital. The launch, which celebrated the new BMW 5 series, attracted both the bold and the beautiful for this good cause.
