If you’re a fan of Caprice Nightclub and you’re looking for that extra “push” to go, check it out this Friday March 13th for a fundraiser in support of the Kids Help Phone. Cover to Caprice is normally around $15, but for this fundraiser, buy your ticket early for $10, with 100% of the proceeds donated to the Kids Help Phone! For more information, click here for the Facebook Event and message my friend Leslie for more information.
“Kids Help Phone is Canada’s only toll-free, national, bilingual, phone and web counselling, referral and information service for children and youth. [They] provide immediate anonymous and confidential support, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”
So I ended up going to Caprice’s Winter Wonderland Party on Thursday night. As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I was postal mailed invitations to this special event! And because i actually went, I guess that makes me a victim of direct-mail marketing!
Nonetheless, I had quite a good time on Thursday night. However, I was a little bit disappointed by being mislead by the Caprice invitations I was sent. “Free cover” with a minimum $10 donation to the “John Kerasiotis Foundation”. “Free drinks” with a minimum $10 donation to the “John Kerasiotis Foundation” Foundation. (For all we know, that can be the owner’s name! (Which it’s not … but potentially!) Actually…I just tried to Google the name to link to it and couldn’t find anything relevant. Sketch, much? Can anyone confirm?
Anyway, thank goodness we got our re-entry stamps early and didn’t have to stand in the notorious lineup for 30+ minutes. Apparently they were serving meat skewers and other appies at the beginning of the night. Overall, I was pleased with the music and its selection of not-so-mainstream progressive and electro house beats and even more impressed that the dance floor didn’t clear out as soon as a non-radio song was played. Steve Angello, Deadmau5, Benny Benassi … you get the idea? We were horrified when the ever-so-depressing “Last Christmas” remix was played, but nonetheless, a couple of holiday tunes were creatively spun into the to 40 dance mix. Overall, I like the Caprice as a venue with its open dance floor and its balcony overlooking the first floor. Bouncers can be a bit unfriendly at times, and the lineup unreasonable, but in general…decent, decent.
I can’t believe I got postal mailed VIP invitations to Caprice’s Winter Wonderland clubbing event this coming Thursday, December 18th. I guess this didn’t really come as a surprise because they called me a few days ago asking for my mailing address. But how they got my phone number is another mystery. I don’t know if I’m going to go yet, but it’s definitely an option for this Thursday since I have three postcard invitations for me and a guest! What music should you be expecting? “DJ DARYLO spinning the best of top 40, and Hip Hop.” Anyway, just because they took the time, effort and postage to do that for me, I feel like I should reward their targeted marketing and put up their event flyer on Modern Mix Vancouver.
