Tiffany's,Talelight and tobacco made for a tasty trio of events last week as fashion and films continue to dominate the Vancouver party scene. First up, my favourite jewelery store played host to the Fans of Splash 2007. Tiffany & Co, at Alberni and Burrard, was where supporters and invited guests dipped and sipped among the diamonds in support of the upcoming 25th anniversary of Arts Umbrella's annual art auction and gala. Next, the boys at Vancouver Cigar Co. celebrated the grand re-opening of their smoking hot new digs by inviting Cuban cigar roller Jorge Lopez to show us why he's no old stogie fogey. And speaking of passing out the cigars, Talelight Films co-founders and friends Jeff Richards and James Upton were surrounded by celebs and celebrations at their second annual Vancouver International Film Festival soiree - The Talelight Night - at Opus Hotel.
