Chat & Chew: Punch Media X OceanPrime Restaurant Social Event
Last night I was invited to an amazingly delicious Social Media Event by one of my great associates Dana from VisitPhilly.com. The event was presented by Punch Media Philly and was hosted by the swanky & chic Ocean Prime Restaurant in downtown Philadelphia.
A Few Foodie Influencers
The event was a combination of some of Philly’s leading foodie fanatics from bloggers, social media influencers, photographers and more. It was such a pleasure to meet fellow food aficionados like myself and have an entire night catered to eating and drinking and uploading to social media.
Ocean Prime Restaurant which is known for their fresh selection of seafood, steaks and cocktails did an off the scale job of hosting the event. Treating us to luscious libations from a refreshing cucumber cocktail, to crisp sweet wine was delightful. But the massive seafood tower piled with colossal juicy shrimp cocktail and fresh oysters was the cherry on top.
Dinner was definitely an experience in itself with a tempting 3 course meal lined up for devouring, I really prayed my appetite was as big as my eyes. The Ocean Prime staff, was a joy to have around as the bartenders delighted us with an pretty cool cocktail demonstration of the popular Berries & Bubbles drink, and served us all evening with courses fit for royalty. Cheers to Chef Rory!
Punch Media Philly definitely knows how to put on a event and it was such a treat to meet some new people to add to my foodie family.
Check out some cool photos from last night.
