I heard it through the grapevine

December 2, 2008

I had the opportunity to be Gorkana’s guinea pig on Wednesday as they played host to the first ever Gorkana Grapevine event. Gorkana hope that these nights, where PRs and journalists rub shoulders and talk all things newsworthy, will be regular events and plan on holding the next one sometime in January.

 

Also in attendance were journos from Sky News, the FT and The Times, and PRs from Maitland, Weber Shandwick and Lexis – in all, about 100 people were squeezed into the very ‘snug’ Long Acre bar.

 

A good night was spoiled however as the pub quiz team I was on was robbed of the star prize as we incorrectly answered this question:

 

“Which internet phenomenon takes its name from a Hawaiian word?”

 

Answers on the back of a postcard please.
