As June winds down we’re officially into summer. This Canada Day long weekend join us for two VHF‘s Places That Matter plaque presentations , one that actually contains a bit of Canadian history along with our local stories. Thursday, June 27th we’ll be at the 1911 Thomas Hooper designed building, now known as Celebrities Nightclub. Doors will open at 7pm, and yes it is FREE entry, for those attending the plaque presentation at 7:30pm. Co-owners Alvaro Prol and Bill Kerasiotis will be presented with a Places That Matter plaque and Michael Kluckner will speak to the history of the building. Originally Lester Dancing Academy, it was the Embassy Ballroom in its early years, and Dante’s Inferno and Retinal Circus during its rock years in the ’60s. Celebrities Nightclub has become known as one of Vancouver’s most inclusive venues offering all people a chance to see some world class musical talent. Join us in the newly restored tron-like interior of Celebrities and think back on the legendary musicians who have seen these walls! See the invitation.
