After the bird show at the Vancouver Aquarium, I headed to Gastown for the latter part of the local entrepreneur meetup, The Buzz Event.

I hadn't been to one before due to schedule conflicts and made a special effort to hit this one up with a rockstar lineup, despite missing the featured speakers including Blenz Coffee president, George Moen.

The turn out was great with a packed house.

The entertainment was provided by singer/songwriter Kristie Yung and Colombian musician Saba Nazarian.

Both provided some great, soulful musical accompaniment.

It's cool having a nice, casual event for young entrepreneurs to come network and meet colleagues.

The videographer and interviewer was of course my dear friend and my protégée (not really) Angela Jung (below interviewing Shangri-La's Adam Nagy) and, for a change, I got to interview her.

One nitpick as a writer, I am a little horrified by the grammatical error in the FaceBox Media photo pics below. Try and spot it. Tsk, tsk.



For any promoters, hustlers, and startup folks out there, this quarterly event is necessary territory for meeting collaborators and partners in crime.
