Taboo Sex Show, Tojo's Sushi Restaurant Opening and Pinks TV Show at Mosquito Creek

Jan 14, 2007

By Catherine Barr


Sex, sushi and speed stand out as this week's theme for fun. First, the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre played host all weekend to Taboo - the Naughty but Nice Sex Show. Then, on Sunday night, Hidekazu Tojo - the inventor of the California Roll himself, threw a big bash to open the doors of his new sushi palace on Broadway. Meanwhile, up at North Van's Mosquito Creek, they're ramping up the revs and celebrating their hot rod sponsored Canada vs. USA win on the show "Pinks" - soon to be seen on Feb 21, 2007 on the Speed Channel.
