Breakfast at The Baker and The Chef in Vancouver

October 13, 2012 Leave a comment

Peter of AHA MEDIA says

Today we dropped in on a little cafe called  The Baker and The Chef on Cambie St in Vancouver

We ordered breakfast, it was noon and they were still serving breaky, bonus! We got the Ham and Cheese Omelet  and “All Day Breakfast” (sausage, eggs, hashbrowns, and toast).

The servings were huge as we couldn’t even finish our food. The ham and cheese omelet was stuffed with so much meat! Very delighted to see this :)

The price was great, the server was very attentive and polite, and the atmosphere was excellent.

We would certainly go back and also recommend this place all our friends! :)

AHA MEDIA is very pleased to welcome The Sennnheiser Sound Tour as they visit W2 in Vancouver‏

W2 Info night June 4, 09 55

W2 Project located in the Woodward re-development site.

The Sennheiser Sound Tour involves two teams traveling across North America for the summer. The teams are comprised of surfers, models, gamers and photographers. Over the Summer they hit 30+ cities across the U.S. and Canada, bringing the reknown professional sound equipment direct to the people.

The tour is documented with social media tools, with  travel adventures uploaded to SennheiserSoundTour.com. They are taking time out to visit W2, an inner-city media centre that has piqued team members interest in how community involvement has developed a state of the art media centre at Woodward’s. W2 is an example of cultural industries supporting job creation for at-risk local youth.
Members of the W2 community team will be on hand to answer questions about the 8,000 sq ft television, radio and new media studios that open winter 2010.

This is an opportunity for the Sennheiser Sound Team to develop, explore and understand the long term planning needs of this important project.

The tour begins at 3:30pm on Friday August 21 at the corner of Cordova and Cambie.

Below is a photo of AHA MEDIA enjoying gelato from the Gelato Shop at 307 Cambie by Cordova. Notice the Woodwards Buildings in the background! :)

AHA MEDIA is pleased to be a Media Sponsor of the Out of the Rain Program at the Flack Block (175 W. Hastings at Cambie )

AHA MEDIA is pleased to be a Media Sponsor of  the Out of the Rain program in the Vancouver Downtown Eastside ( DTES)

Initiated in 2005, the Out of the Rain program in Vancouver is an evolving unique initiative that brings together professional and marginalized artists to promote genuine solutions to homelessness, as well as develop new methods of art production, sustainable art practice, life stability planning, and dissemination.

Special emphasis is working closely with those artists who face significant challenges (mental health, housing, addiction, poverty) to maintaining and sustaining a regular art practice but who, in the face of these challenges, persevere to make art as a means of survival and self-expression.

Opening: Friday June 5th, 2009, 6:00pm-10:00pm.
Artists from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside show new work produced during  Out of the Rain program.

Since 2005, Out of the Rain has been bringing together professional and marginalized artists to develop new methods of art production, sustainable art practice, life stability planning, and a professional exhibit.

Special emphasis is placed on working with artists who face challenges to maintaining regular art practice but who, in spite of these challenges, persevere to make art as a means of survival and self-expression. To this end, twelve artists are being provided with studio space, art supplies and sustenance. These artists were selected from over 50 interested and qualified artists.

This year, Out of the Rain is generously funded by the Social Responsibility Fund (through the City of Vancouver). Gallery Gachet (http://www.gachet.org) would also like to thank the Salient Group for providing subsidized street level work space in the Flack Block (175 W. Hastings at Cambie).

On the 5th of May 1945 the allied Canadian Forces liberated the Netherlands and the Dutch people from 5 years of Nazi occupation. This event is celebrated annually in the Netherlands and by people of Dutch descent around the world.

Today is the 64th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands by Canadian Allied Forces Annual Ceremony held at Victory Square, Vancouver ( May 4th , 2009)

In the following  video, AHA MEDIA’s Producer (April Smith) and Director (Hendrik Beune) were on another assignment today at “The Flack Block”, kitty-corner from Victory Square, at the intersection of Cambie and Hastings Streets in Vancouver, where the Canadian WWII war memorial is located where they noticed “Bevrijdingsdag”: 5th of May annual Dutch Liberation Day Celebrations in Vancouver’s Victory Square happening.

AHA MEDIA’s Director Hendrik Beune was born in Utrecht, the Netherlands and is still fluent in the Dutch language, which they call ‘Nederlands’. This was the predominant language spoken at this celebration of Victory by allied Western Forces over a fascist regime.

Speeches were made by the Dutch Consulate-General and various other dignitaries. Dutch and Canadian flagsflew side by side as tulips and ceremonial wreaths were placed at the monument by various groups, including from “JeMaintiendrai”, the dutch patriot organization, which carries the same name as the dutch motto and which means “I will maintain” with the implied connotation of “We will survive resiliently”.

Other notables were Mr. and Mrs. Oostindie (parents of Irwin Oostindie, who is the Director of W2, the new DTES Centre forCommunity Media Arts).

In this video, Hendrik Beune, Director of AHA MEDIA, meets Mr. and Mrs. Oostindie (parents of Irwin Oostindie, who is the Director of W2, the new DTES  Community Media Arts Centre). Mr. Oostindie Sr. was active in the resistance movement during WWII and this also shows in the past and present work of his son Irwin.

NEW addition :)

Irwin Oostindie wrote to AHA MEDIA: ” My mother was also influential in working for social justice. I remember coming down to this corner, Cambie and Hastings, in the 1970s to visit my mom at her volunteer job. She worked for the Consumer’s Association of Canada, an advocacy group located upstairs at the Flack Block! “
