Sex and the City character Smith Jarrod (played by actor Jason Lewis) is sultry, seductive and all Samantha's on the big screen. But last week, at a special breast cancer fundraiser at Ceili's on Granville, he belonged to this city. Swarmed by fetching females, the Absolute Hunk handled himself with poise and charm amid scores of bachelorettes and libidinous ladies just dying for a pinch and tickle. Oh well, who said life as a sex symbol was easy. Meanwhile, with summer here, the living is easy at just about anyplace with a patio these days. The Society of Wine Educators (SWE) raised a glass at their annual barbecue, patio party and scholarship dinner in honour of Rick Carl at the Vancouver Rowing Club. And Chef Wayne Martin, of Crave on Main success, has taken his act to the beach in West Vancouver with the opening of Crave Beachside - a star-studded locals haunt whose decadent short-rib frites with truffle mayonnaise is literally flying out the door, and onto the deck.
