French Cheese Paired with Sake

Join AWIB for a special evening at the newly opened French Cheese Board in SOHO for a cheese and sake pairing.  With the best possible global food array available to us, crossing borders makes sense and the umami in cheese and sake creates a perfect match. Whether it is emmental, brie, mimolette, or raclette, the flavors can be enhanced with the right sake pairing.  Our sake ninja, Chris Johnson, has carefully curated a selection that will certainly please your taste buds. The evening includes a discussion on the variety of French cheese and the diversity of sake, and how pairings enhance the flavors of both.   Space is limited.

AWIB members - $35 (members can bring one guest for $35)
Non-members - Early Bird (by 7/06) $55; thereafter $70
(Proceeds for this event go towards the AWIB Scholarship Fund)

Registration and payment required by July 6th.

Digitally Speaking: A New Reality

Digital media is now the most important source for art, entertainment, news, shopping and social interaction.   As we become more mobile, we want access anytime and anywhere, making it necessary to be available in the micro-moment in order to reach the broadest audience and their influencers.  Can organizations keep up?  Can we afford not to?

Our panel of experts will discuss how organizations have been transformed by the digital age.  What benefits have they seen when they engage with audiences and supporters in new, more effective ways?  Has this brought in different consumers, while also engaging their current user base? 

After our discussion, Sree will take us on a private guided tour through the galleries where we can see the Met the way he does.

Featured speakers:

  • Angela Fung, Executive Director and Sr. Partner, Digital Production, Ogilvy & Mather
  • Aditi Malhotra, Owner, Founder, Chocolatier, Tache Artisan Chocolate
  • Sree Sreenivasan, Chief Digital Officer, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
