Brighton, UK (PRWEB UK) 7 August 2012
Trendy in parts perhaps, but deepest East London is not exactly known for its luxury nightlife. During the Games, however, the A-listers, B-listers, oligarchs and wannabees can party on in style at Forman?s Fish Island Riviera. Set just 100 metres from the main stadium, the hospitality venue has teamed up with the award-winning Maddox Club to create a glittering pop-up club and beach bar to match Team GB?s glittering performance.
Founded by Fred Moss ? the man behind China White and Movida ? in 2007, Maddox Club is synonymous with London?s luxury party scene, regularly playing host to celebrity actors, musicians and models. For the 17 days and nights of the Olympics, Moss will recreate a temporary, East End version of his atmospheric Mayfair hangout at Fish Island Riviera. Combining West End opulence with a riverside location, beach volleyball court, palm trees, water transport, top notch cocktails and, of course, the great quality food that Forman?s have come to be renowned for, this is more St Tropez than Stratford.
While the Riviera consists of exclusive hospitality suites, the permanent venue at Forman?s Fish Island offers the Olympic Park?s general visitors a chance to enjoy some luscious late-night dining accompanied by the sultry jazz of The Ronnie Scott?s All Star Band. Out to prove that London has more gastronomy to offer than the world?s biggest McDonald?s, the Forman?s chefs have created special Great British Dining menus to impress guests into the early hours.
Lance Forman, owner of Forman?s Fish Island said, ?My family business has 107 years of experience in supplying the very best British gourmet food to top chefs and private customers like. The Olympics is our chance to show visitors from around the world that London cuisine is worthy of a gold medal.?
As the sun sets on the sport, great food and music combine to recreate the atmosphere of the legendary Soho jazz spot. Performances are included in the package for late diners, which also features award-winning English wines, easy access to and from the main stadium, pre-booked parking and a water taxi. With many sports fans unable to get their hands on tickets for sporting events, a visit to Forman?s Fish Island provides another way to celebrate the once-in-a-lifetime experience that is London 2012.
About H.Forman & Son
Forman?s core business was forced to relocate from the centre of the Olympic stadium in a high profile compulsory purchase battle with former Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone. Its new premises on Fish Island, adjacent to the Olympic Stadium, was opened by Mayor Boris Johnson in January 2009 , who described it as ?The Legacy in Advance?.
H.Forman & Son is the oldest producer of smoked salmon in the world and part of the food heritage of East London. The business also comprises the multi award-winning home-delivery artisanal British food service http://www.formanandfield.com

How does an internet marketing company such as Route 72 effect the New York Yankees and New York Mets? Simply put, MyCityTicket.com (http://mycityticket.com). My City Ticket is an online ticket vender that sells tickets to the biggest entertainment events all over the United States.
Route 72 Systems (http://route72.com) has fully dissected the struggle of online ticket venders in our current economy. Social Media Engineer and life time Yankee fan Chris Stacy, of Route 72 Systems, began with the biggest problem, low attendance at New York baseball games. ?It?s a shame that families can no longer enjoy a baseball game without worrying about spending more than they can afford,? states Stacy. ?As the marketing team for an online ticket vender such as My City Ticket, we have to look beyond our normal strategies of SEO. We need to analyze the problem and figure out how to get more people to purchase tickets.?
With the Yankees and Mets meeting in their first battle of inter league play Friday night in the Bronx, it seems like a good time to ask the following Subway Series question: why doesn’t anybody go to games in Yankee Stadium and Citi Field anymore?
Let?s start with Yankee Stadium. Purchasing a ticket online is simple, and if a fan doesn?t mind sitting in the bleachers or the upper deck, it can be fairly cheap as well. During an average match up in the Bronx, many vendors sell tickets for as low as four dollars a piece. So why are fans still refusing to show up?
Oddly enough, the ticket to enter the stadium is the cheapest item on the check list for enjoying a baseball game at Yankee Stadium.

The playoffs are stirring around the corner for the NFL. The college bowl season is among us which means another favorite American pastime is among us as well, having fresh, cold beverages with loved ones. Though the classic image many have of such in-game refreshment involves enjoying a beer from the tap with friends, it can just as often amount to a quiet moment spent sipping a bubbling soda pop with one?s children, nephews, or nieces. Fortunately, advances in beverage carbonation cylinder technology that have been led by Cyl-Tec now ensure that every drink that?s drawn from a tap or fountain at a sports stadium or other public venue will always taste crisp, smooth, and fresh. Cyl-Tec has designed, provided for and installed the entire nine tank cryogenic CO2 beverage system for the new Indiana Colts stadium.
In particular, the widespread construction of new football, baseball, and other athletic complexes at the professional, college, and even high school levels throughout the 1990s and 2000s has led to a new standard in patron and concessionary services. Many of these recently completed and planned stadiums, for instance, were developed to make locations dedicated to providing food and drink more accessible to individuals of all age groups while they, simultaneously, introduced utilities that raised the standards for every consumable served. This means that many recently-completed stadiums have had their concession stands built around beverage carbonation cylinders like Cyl-Tec?s Fast Fill 500, which is the industry-leader in cryogenic CO2 storage. Capable of keeping up to 500 lbs of liquefied gas cool and ready for use with dispensing or carbonating drinks, the Fast Fill 500, along with other Cyl-Tec cylinders that are designed to store pressurized, liquefied gas, is an ideal match for the dispensing needs of many ballparks and stadiums, including those at the college and high school level, because it can help pour drinks quickly and for extended periods of time without having to be refilled. This is due to a capacity for higher vaporization that allows for more gas per volume that, in turn, means venues, be they concert halls, pubs, or stadiums, can serve more people, faster, and with better tasting drinks than anything else on the market.
Most of America?s sports and other athletic facilities date back several generations, though. Because many have become a part of the history of the teams they host, these older sites are also unlikely to undergo modifications or reconstructions that might change their basic layout. The fans that migrate to their bleachers every autumn, however, can still enjoy the convenient beverage dispensing services that products like the Fast Fill 500 and other Cyl-Tec beverage carbonation cylinders provide. This is because Cyl-Tec?s team of experienced beverage carbonation engineers specializes in developing beverage distribution systems for older buildings as well as newer ones. With relative ease, they can inspect any school or professional team?s stadium, talk to vendors, administrative officials, and facility management staff about the venue?s specific needs, and then design a system that can deliver fresh, cold beverages to patrons in convenient, economical ways. Cyl-Tec can even provide the technical support and continuing analysis that?s needed to maximize the value of an advanced beverage carbonation system for years to come.
