SOCIAL SCENE: Crop Over treat for journalists
INTERNATIONAL JOURNALISTS IN Barbados to cover Crop Over got another sample of the island’s culinary fare when the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI) hosted a reception at the popular Cin Cin restaurant in St James last week.
“You are invited here to not only get a sample of what we have to offer outside of Crop Over, but really to immerse yourselves and really to be here to experience a one-of-a-kind festival,” chief executive officer of the BTMI, Billy Griffith, told the group of media people who were taking a pause from a hectic programme of attendance at several Crop Over events.
Cin Cin’s owner Larry Rogers rolled out a cocktail menu that is part of the restaurant’s offerings that have made it popular with visitors and locals and the food clearly delighted the palate of his media guests from the United States, Canada, Britain and the Caribbean.
At the end of the two-hour reception, the visitors were whisked away to the Concorde Experience venue for the 1Love show featuring Trinidadian soca artiste, Machel Montano. (GC)
