The oil spill threat this summer took it’s toll on the opportunity for us to have a slammin’, jammin’ summer, but it wasn’t all bad. Our image was certainly tarnished, our tourism numbers were down a bit, but on the plus side, the Panama City Beach Convention and Visitor’s Bureau received $2 million from BP to be used for marketing the beaches of Panama City Beach. This influx of marketing money has saved our CVB $750,000 from their regular marketing budget this year so far and has freed up some cash to use in other arenas.
The Panama City Beach Seafood, Wine & Music Festival is just over a week away and the pre-event kickoff “Charity Wine Dinner” that will benefit the Visual Arts Center is planned for Thursday, October 9th at Breakers Restaurant.
Endorsement will come from the esteemed La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, an international gastronomic society devoted to promoting fine dining and preserving the camaraderie and pleasures at the table.
Appetizer: Ahi Sushi Grade Tuna with a Wasabi and Rice Vinegar Vinaigrette, garnished with a seasonal Melon Salad and Belgium Endive.
