Celebrities in town this month brought out the who’s who of the North Shore and Vancouver. First up, a visit by one of the most powerful ladies in the U.S., Hillary Clinton. The Vancouver Board of Trade / Women’s Leadership Circle event was one of the most successful events ever held by the board. A private VIP meet and greet and then after event reception allowed everyone to talk about the lady that very well may become the next President of the United States. Next up, actor/comedian Dan Aykroyd played bartender to an invited list of guests at the Vancouver Club as part of a special Crystal Head Vodka launch event. Entertaining and personable, it was a joy to interview him about his career, his famous friends and his cocktails.
