Join us for Coconuts Colloquium #3: The Culture of Tastemaking in Hong Kong

We’re bringing Coconuts Colloquiums to Hong Kong next week, and we’d be chuffed to see you there.

Coconuts Colloquiums is our new event series — the idea simply being: We want to jazz up the format of your typical after-work forum and Happy Hour, put a little of that Coconuts flavor to your post- nine-to-five.

One part powwow (some call this a “panel”), one part mixer-mingler thingy, booze for miles, and that secret sauce that strikes the balance of entertainment and insight. Hopefully, you’ll leave our sessions a little bit more enlightened and a lot more inebriated. Ah, and prizes. We’ve got those, too.

This next edition brings together a panel of well-known personalities from Hong Kong’s dining scene to discuss the following topic:

From star-chasing chefs to food as photo-ops — what happens when we give “Best Of” rankings too much clout? We discuss the good, the bad, and all the dirty deets in between.

Our panelists:

Katie Forster, Managing Director at Katherine Amara PR

Owen Gibler, Beverage Director and Principal Bartender at Employees Only Hong Kong

Tara Babins, Communications Director for Yardbird, RŌNIN, and Sunday’s Grocery

Larry Tang, Founder of Locofama

Moderated by Cindy Kuan, Coconuts Media’s Managing Editor for Food, Lifestyle, and Travel

As with our previous Coconuts Colloquiums, the drinks shall be free-flow, and the complimentary bites, delicious. All on the house. After the talk, we’ll have time to meet and mingle, too.

The whole shindig is in honor of our new Coco Food and Coco Travel verticals, as well as revamped food and lifestyle pages across all of our eight Coconuts cities.
