Salvador: Wine, please

Of apples and lemons

COCKTAIL hour. Where do you have you Martini, red wine or whiskey? May I suggest at Marco Polo. Anytime this July is good to visit the hotel, relax and raise the glass to good times ahead.

Like they say, everyday is a good day to have a cocktail or two. Having a glass of wine or a bottle of beer a day is said to be good for the health. Why not drink and be healthy?

My choice of drink is red wine and the recent gathering at Polo Bistro “Not So Serious Dinner” was an event I would not say no to.

The “Not So Serious Dinner” was an unconventional wine pairing dinner affair conceived by the GM Colin Healy and co-presented by Wine Warehouse. It also kicked off the hotel’s series of wine and dine events.

“It will redefine dining experience with a Filipino-themed setting. We will take you to a tour into the colorful world of wines from Rutherford Ranch,” said Marco Polo Davao General Manager Colin Healy, who introduced wine sommelier Daniel Blais.

A few days after, the hotel launched its July food and wine promotions.

To celebrate International Kissing Day, a kiss to someone you cherish will get you free cocktails at the Pool Bar until July 20.

The Pool Bar and Eagles Bar join the National Fried Chicken Day and offers a month-long chicken deals. On the menu are Honey Glazed Fried Chicken, Salted Egg Fried Chicken Wings and Waffles and Fried Chicken.

Happy Hour starts at 3PM at the Pool Bar and 6PM at Eagles Bar. For two hours daily at the Pool Bar and three hours on Saturday and Sunday at Eagles, Buy 1 Take 1 deals take effect on a selected drink daily.

If it’s Mojito or a beer you want to end a hardworking day, you will enjoy the evening more with the good deals Marco Polo have for you.
