Amex Viaduct Gives Pleasure To Oyster And Bubbles Lovers This Weekend

Oyster lovers will be able to enjoy free sampling, with bubbles to wash it down - this weekend at the Amex Viaduct.

Says Heart of the City Marketing Manager, Liz Smith: “We have magnums of bubbles to give away and endless oysters for visitors to the American Express Viaduct Harbour this weekend.”

“Including a variety of oysters - from Bluff to Whangaroa - a massive 60 dozen oysters will be opened by professional shuckers at lunchtime on the weekend.”

Served alongside the Mills Reef Non Vintage Methode Champenoise is a Lake Chalice Riesling.

Says Liz: “Heart of the City, Viaduct Harbour Limited and American Express have combined resources with Viaduct operators to provide good fun and entertainment on the last weekend of the School Holidays.”

“While oysters are an acquired taste, you either love them or you don’t - there are plenty of ways to enjoy them.”

Liz said the three organisations have developed an exciting series of events that will lead through the winter into the America’s Cup regatta which begins in October with the Louis Vuitton Cup challenge.

Combined funds worth over $300,000 have been set aside to promote the series of events at the American Express Viaduct Harbour including the Enchanted String Quartet playing at the Viaduct Harbour Stage on Sunday. During the winter a month of jazz is planned and a long lunch event will be held in conjunction with the TV2 International Laugh Festival.
