I just got an invite to what sounds like a really cool event. Galvin@Windows is going to be hosting a live online oyster and Champagne tasting event. Now how did they know I adore champagne? and add in oysters…have I died and gone to heaven? Galvin@Windows is on the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane and is a relatively new restaurant in town. This is the first of what they promise to be a “new series of special events”. The event is going to be livestreamed using Ustream by WorldTV.com.
According to the press release, we…
will be using social media tools such as blogging, tweeting, video and spin voxing as the event unfolds to report and interact with their world wide audience.
Guests will be presented with several varieties of oysters such as Fine de Claires, Helford Native, Duchy of Cornwall and a range of Champagnes from houses such as Laurent Perrier, Bruno Paillard and Galvin own brand.
Food and wine lovers will be able to follow the tasting, live online from the comfort of their own home on their PC, iPhone, Twitter and via partner blogs and websites.
The event will be hosted by BBC Radio 2 presenter Nigel Barden with participation from Chris Galvin (Galvin at Windows), Bruno Murciano (Bibendum), Robin Hancock (Wright Brothers), Sokratis Papafloratos (TrustedPlaces), Andre Garrett and Fred Sirieix (Galvin at Windows). The event is being produced by WorldTV in partnership with Ustream.
The event is taking place March 6th from 4 – 6 pm GMT, 11am – 1pm EST and you can follow along on twitter tag, #galvinw or on the live URL: worldtv.com/live
Hope to see you (virtually) there!
