Capones Wine & Jazz Festival

Before the trendy shops and beautiful people, Yaletown was an industrial area known for not much more than inexpensive studio space, offices and manufacturing workshops. Today, Yaletown is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Vancouver. Yaletown is a place to see and been seen. And one of the ways to be seen is to attend the first annual Capones Wine & Jazz Festival.

Capones came under new ownership recently and the proprietors figured the best way to put the old jazz club and restaurant back on the map was the host a wine and jazz festival. From now until May 2, Capones will be showcasing great food and wines from five different regions. They will offer for each region an incredible 4 course dinner menu plus a flight of wine. The price is $60 per person (plus taxes & gratuity). Tonight was the opening gala party to kick the event off.

When an invite says free wine and jazz, we generally don’t need much podding to attend. There were six wine stations set up offering dozens of different wines. Sample them all and you’ll be feeling pretty buzz by the end, which we were. Enjoy the video.

  5. I wonder how many looks you get when people read your jacket “I’m blogging this”. Jazz and wine, what a great night out.

    Looks like everyone was having a great time, especially you. I really enjoyed the fact that you were shamelessly advertising marketleverage.com on your back!

    On another note, I am sure that everyone in Vancouver is looking forward to the Olympics! Hopefully, Chicago can learn from your city and lock down the bid for the Summer Olympics in 2016.

        Ironic enough–I hate alcohol..but I love jazz and being 20 here in the states keeps me from being able to go into those kind of clubs–or anything really..

  11. Jazz and wine, what can be better? 🙂

  12. Rahul says:

    Jazz mixed up with wine will definitely spark up some lights. Great music and cool crowd.

  13. John,

    Take it easy on the wine, when tasting you are supposed to spit it out! Otherwise when you wake up you will not know what day it is…Thursday I think…right? Oh yes of course it is Thursday.

    Hey, I received the Flip Mino HD and recorded my smiling Grand Daughter last night in 720P glory! Thanks to you and Market Leverage for the win!
