We created the Andaz Salon as an educational experience that reflects our personal culture.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 21, 2011
Andaz San Diego recently debuted its signature Andaz Salon, a monthly series of inspiring social events intended for guests and ‘neighbors’ to discover the downtown San Diego hotel’s creative culture. To kick off the series, Andaz is hosting a wine pairing class event in the popular Ivy Wine Bar to tap into San Diego’s local wine culture and culinary artisans.
Wine Smarties sommelier and expert host, Lindsay Pomeroy, will lead guests in a spirited demonstration of wine pairings in the next series to take place on Tuesday, October 4, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Ivy Wine Bar. Pomeroy has teamed up with San Diego's prominent cheese experts to help guests learn which delicacies best complement four distinctive glasses of wine.
“We created the Andaz Salon to engage our guests and locals in an interesting, educational experience that reflects our personal culture,” said Rachael Giannecchini, marketing manager of Andaz. “We hope our guests leave the event feeling as though they have taken part in something special.”
For each event, Andaz will gather some of San Diego's ‘movers and shakers’ to attend to collect their thoughts and impressions of the overall experience. These local influencers will share their experience via the Andaz Living Guest Book, a virtual salon hosted on the Andaz Facebook page which is designed to connect and inspire creativity digitally.
Each of the five Andaz hotels around the world has launched the Andaz Salon series focusing on culinary, wine, art and music reflecting the hotel’s creative landscape. From wine and cheese immersions, to art exhibits, local music performances and culinary demonstrations, guests will have the opportunity to interact with leading cultural arbiters, learn something new and spark their own personal creativity.
