Mar 3, 2008

By Catherine "Cat" Barr

The North Shore Outlook is delivered to over 60,000 homes in Canada's wealthiest communities, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, every Thursday - over 60,000 issues in print.


Canaccord's executive vice president and West Vancouverite Paul Chalmers and his beautiful wife Barb are strong believers in good food for West Vancouver. As such, they've entered the restaurant business with a talented chef and a team that has set its sights high on the hills. Opening just last Friday, Fraiche restaurant is located on the Chippendale connector road at the top of Westhill. Former Four Seasons chef Wayne Martin and his team are cooking up a storm - so drop in and check them out. Meanwhile, other tastings and parties wrapped up a week of wining and dining as the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival wrapped up for another year.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
