Feenies Anniversary and Aqualuna

Sep 13 and Sep 18, 2004

By Catherine Barr


It takes a lot to make it in the food biz these days but Chef Rob Feenie has the right recipie. His "Feenie's" restaurant on Broadway was the star last week as it celebrated its first anniversary with a chic guest list and lots of food and drink.

Meanwhile, last weekend, "Aqualuna" took over the Vancouver aquarium, literally. The two part Cancer fundraiser included a sit-down dinner for 150 followed by an all-out lunar festival featuring live music, martial arts, a fashion show, grafitti artists, dancers and close to 1,000 partygoers who quickly overwhelmed aquarium bar service staff.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
