Who knows.

Same here now that you've brought this up.

But even if I had been invited, I don't think I would've been cool enough for the Vancouver Club.

I received an invite via email a few weeks ago. The event was held at the Vancouver Club. They served us a three-course meal, it was good. They are planning a Toronto and Montreal dining events for diamond members in the near future.

I've walked by that place many times and have always remained confused about who goes there and for what sort of events. Completely eludes me.

Once again, excluded because it would be inconceivable that a frequent flyer would fly somewhere.

No invite for me either, despite SE, Diamond, charming temperament, etc.

No huge loss I am sure.

I didn't receive an invite to this event, but have visited the Vancouver Club on several occasions. I'm not a member; just associated with several who are. It used to be a bit of a 'stuffy red leather, mahogany panelled, whiff-of-cigar' type of place - boy's club if you will - but no longer. Like most venerable institutions, it is evolving. A faint air of exclusivity does permeate, but no more so than from a Signature Lounge.

As Bohemian deduced: no huge loss I am sure.

By the time I checked my e-mail several hours later, it was "sold" out.

If Aeroplan wants to show some appreciation they could start by answering the phone when I call.

Same here, I think I tried within 1-2 hours of the email arriving, and it was 'sold out'...

The email looked like this:
