Westender Launch Party and Capones Patio Party

April 20 / 21, 2005

By Catherine Barr


Last week was a great week to celebrate new beginnings. For starters, our own WE- Westender gang celebrated the paper's new look with a high-energy, after work cocktail mingler at Voda. Also, Capones Restaurant and Jazz Club in Yaletown celebrated their new groove at their annual Patio Party which came complete with live music and sun drenched smiles.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

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.
