West Vancouver’s Park Royal Shopping Centre continues to open new doors with the inclusion of yet another tasty spot. Rogers Chocolates, famously known for their pink checkered wrappers, has set up shop in the Village and earlier this month they invited friends and guests to enjoy a opening celebration chocolate party. Rich dark chocolate “shots”, chocolate carvings and live music by the Lynn Canyon Band were all part of the evening. Also, West Vancouver’s Beachside Forno restaurant featured North Shore winery owners at their recent “Know Your Neighbours” winemakers’ dinner. Host Kurtis Kolt introduced a delicious menu which was paired with elegant wines from Haywire Winery, Tantalus Vineyards and Painted Rock Vineyards. Lastly, it was an international affair last week at West Vancouver’s Ferry Building Gallery as honourary Bolivian consul Pilar Izzard and her son Peter Langer hosted invited guests for “Impressions of Bolivia”, a celebration of Bolivia’s national day.

05 – Celebrating Bolivia’s national day, honorary consul Pilar Izzard and son Peter Langer hosted over 20 fellow consuls for a photo presentation entitled “Impressions of Bolivia”.
