AHA MEDIA attended the 1st Annual Wine and Jazz Festival of Vancouver at Capone’s Restaurant in Yaletown.


While our focus is being hyper local citizen journalists from the Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES ), we are learning to become social media event reporters for Vancouver’s technology, social media and twitter world.

 We were proud  and thankful to be invited by Graham Lloyd, Account Manager, 99.3 The FOX ! 🙂 and Daniela Vecchione, Marketing Manager of Capone’s Restaurant.

Below is a photo, Peter Davies, Reporter for AHA MEDIA and Lorraine Murphy of Raincoaster Media at the opening of the festival.


Capone’s welcomes us with  printed materials of the week  long  Wine and Jazz festival and upcoming events 🙂


Here is a photo of Capone’s upon walking in. A lively vibrant place! 🙂


Below is Raul Pacheco of   grins his very charming smile for AHA MEDIA, while Lorraine Murphy looks on and smiles 🙂

 The 1st Annual Wine and Jazz Festival in Vancouver was completed by the  fantastic jazz played by Legendary Jazzman Wes Mackey !! 🙂  He will be having his new CD Launch party at Capone’s Restaurant soon! Stay Tuned! 🙂


Thanks to Capone’s Restaurant for putting on a fabulous event for us to enjoy! 🙂
