They know where all the best restaurants are, where all the movies stars stay and can probably help you get front row tickets to just about any event in town. They are Vancouver's doormen, and without them, we'd be a city without a face. This week, at the 18th Annual Doormens Dinner, these ambassadors were honoured for their great service and hard work. Sponsored by the CH.I.L.D (CHildren with Intenstinal and Liver Disorders), this was one fundraiser where extra baggage was encouraged. Also, the Vancouver Club played host last Saturday to the Jet Set Crew and their James Bond 007 Martini Party. DJ Timka, direct from New York's Buddha Bar, put down the sounds as Octopussy, Odd Job and other sexy villans strutted their stuff. Lastly, congrats go to Pasquale Cusano and the gang at Montecristo Jewellers for their exclusive men's and women's shopping nights - funds from which go to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.
