The lineup stretched out onto the street last Friday night at the Vancouver Art Gallery as patrons and partygoers eagerly waited to enter FUSE - Truth, Beauty & Utopias. Held on select Fridays throughout the year, the FUSE nights offer something for everyone. This time is was live music, four different art displays, a performance by Theatre Conspiracy and ultra house beats in the FUSE lounge by three different DJs. Also last week, the Jet Set Crew, known for their chic and lavish parties where the beautiful people play, hosted Evolve at the Vancouver Club. Billed as a "revenue neutral, green gathering of forward thinking people" the party emphasized investment in a sustainable future while guests nibbled on appetizers and sipped cocktails.
