Each month, we produce VanMag and Western Living issues that we love (biased, we know)—but none of it would be possible without the writers, illustrators, photographers, copy editors and proofreaders who help each magazine to look its best. So last night, we invited our fabulous contributors to Parq Vancouver’s D/6 lounge for an evening of celebration—we really can’t say thank you enough! Here’s a peek at the festivities:
