The Hyatt Regency Montreal has celebrated their 1,000th Facebook Fan this Wednesday. How? The best way you can imagine on a perfect sunny day: by opening the terrace. As long as you were a fan of their page you could come and enjoy a very nice open bar (with a very trendy yellow bracelet… irony, you’re not so far).
Name of the operation: 5@7 at the Six Resto Lounge. The guest DJ Thomas H did a pretty good job, even though the music was way too loud for this kind of event. Beer, Wine & Cocktails, a roof, a non-aggressive sun and a view of Place des arts, for a winter evening that’s more then what we could have expected.
During this 5@7 that lasted longer than 7 (I left at 7:30 and it was still crowded), I went inside the hotel to have a look at their "automatic wine bar" device which provides different kinds of wines for one glass (three sizes). You have insert a card and then the machine pours something into your glass. Thanks you. Well, I didn’t have the card so I just watched, I cried a lot and went back to the terrace to enjoy a first glass of wine, or maybe a third glass… anyway the sun was slowly dying behind the skyscrapers of beautiful Montreal and enjoyed the firs…fourth glass.
Montreal is soooooo small, I met Marie-Josée, a freelance colleague journalist I met earlier that same day testing the Reebok Crossfit YUL, quite an experience I’ll write about soon.
Hey M. Hyatt, how about celebrating 1100th Facebook fan next Wednesday?
