Director of operations Simon Amos and his team at the Beijing Hilton have scrutinized the entries to the Theme Team Contest, for this year’s Food and Wine Experience on November 12, and picked the winners. In fact, when I received the results, they included a surprise.
First, the grand prize, which includes two tickets to the Food and Wine Experience, two tickets to the buffet dinner at Elements, an overnight stay in a suite, and in-room breakfast the next day. And the winner, with the entry “Vinopolitan“, is Matt. And Amos says the Beijing Hilton will be using Vinopolitan as the name for this year’s event.
The Beijing Hilton will also give two tickets to the Food and Wine Experience and dinner buffet to Kirby, for his entry “Decanted Decadence”, and — because they felt both were equally good — two tickets each to the Food and Wine Experience to Jocko for “Vinfamous” and Belinda for “Vintageous”.
The surprise is the Beijing Hilton will give one ticket to the Food and Wine Experience to each of the following readers who submitted an entry:
- mr. brau
- Janie Gierlich
- Beijing Daze
- Alex B
- Daniel LaRusso
I will be in contact by email to explain how to claim prizes. Thanks to everyone who participated (you can see all of the entries here) and to the Beijing Hilton for the prizes. I’ll post more about The Beijing Hilton Food and Wine Experience as the event gets closer and I hope to see everyone there.
