OC RESTAURANT WEEK LAUNCH PARTY RECAP
MARCH 12, 2015
Did you have a chance to dine out during OC Restaurant Week last week? If so, hopefully you enjoyed your dining experience and perhaps even found a new favorite eatery. If you attended the Launch Party on February 28, then deciding on a favorite would be a lot harder.
From ahi tuna tacos to short ribs and gourmet peanut butter and jelly to cupcakes, there was a large variety of delicacies. Over thirty restaurants provided samples of their food for attendees to try. Popular Orange County restaurants such as Maro Wood Grill, Slapfish, Shades Restaurant, and the Cellar. We’re looking forward to sampling more restaurants at the Golden Foodies Awards in September in Newport Beach! Stay tuned for ticket information for that event and how Celebrity Cruises will be involved.
The OC Restaurant Week Launch Party took place at the gorgeous Waterfront Beach Resort, a Hilton Hotel in Huntington Beach. The event space had lovely views of the Pacific ocean.
Celebrity Cruises provided a wine lounge and we partnered up with Jackson Family Wines who poured three of their labels: Cambria, Byron, and Carmel Road. To pair with the wine, we provided cheese samples as part of our “Guess that Cheese” contest. Attendees could try the cheese and tweet their guess for a chance to win a Visa gift card. The cheese ended up being…Fontina!
In addition to wine, we talked to people about the wonderful world of cruising. If you’d like to learn more about cruising and also the Celebrity Cruises sweepstakes, visit www.CelebrityCruises.com/SoCal. Then get together with your family at one of Orange County’s stellar restaurants to discuss and start planning your next trip!
