Let’s get techy with it!

It’s that time of year again! It seems like Christmas was just yesterday, and already we are halfway through the year! With 2017 suddenly disappearing it’s time to start planning all of those important or last minute functions! And don’t forget the Christmas party.

But with the workload piling up and the tax man still looming over us, how can we possibly find the time to sort out all those work events?

Even if you’re not an organised person usually, a diary or planner is a MUST when planning your event!

But sometimes there just isn’t enough paper in the world to organise all those little side notes, contacts and scribbled out plans, and if your diary is starting to look more like a kindergarteners scrap book rather than the structure for your day then we have some news for you: It’s time to get techy!

 Don’t worry it’s not as scary as it sounds! Here’s a  few benefits.

Give yourself plenty of time to prepare and organise your event with your digital calendar, this allows you to set yourself up reminders and provide a countdown to your event. You can also set up reminders for others involved in your event through your email calender.

Manage your data easier! Create a budget and spending plan quickly and efficiently using your computer or tablet, this will provide you with a visual idea of exactly where your time and resources are going.

Sound complicated? Everything you need right now is already on your phone!

Apps! Apps everywhere!

Depending on the size of your event, the evolution of the app on smart phones lets you do just about everything these days! Go digital, by creating an event app or social page for your event will allow you communicate with your guests. Send your invites, create an attendance list, determine dietary requirements and even vote on entertainment choice quickly and easily without having to chase up everyone in the office individually!

With so much going on this time of year it’s not uncommon to get carried away on time consuming tasks. Using technology and social media applications allows you the ability to sort, share and contribute as you need while multi-tasking your other projects.

But be carefully not to get too carried away on your tech! The whole point of using this organisational tool is so that you have the time to step away for a time and not get bogged down!

Identify your audience

Of course it’s always important to take into account that not all your event participants are going to be techy enough to interact with this new form of event planning. Be careful how digital you go when planning your event, not everybody in the office might be from the digital age.

Your Attendees!

When relying on technology to organise your event, your contact with your attendees can sometimes become impersonal. Make sure to send out reminders if you want to increase your engagement and ensure their attendance at your event!

Keep in contact with your guests through RSVP reminders and promoting any entertainment that may be at your event.

Consider sending ok digital thank you’s to your attendees after the event,

Hashtags

Whether you are planning a Christmas, retirement, birthday party or wedding have some fun with your guests with a hashtag for the event.

The Environment

By going digital with your event planning you’re not only keeping all your info in the one place, you’re helping the environment too! No paper, plastic or ink wastage means you can feel great about being so environmentally friendly as well as hosting a top-notch event! (Don’t forget the money you’ll save!)

Alternatively, let somebody else do it for you! Give the events team at C.ex Coffs a call today and let them take the hard work out of organising your event.

The ‘foodies’ Destination – Ribeye On Vernon

Self-titled ‘foodies’ have been popping up everywhere in today’s general public, sharing with us there knowledge and plastering images of their daily meals all over social media.

So what is a foodie?

For those of you who are not yet caught up with the lingo of today’s society, a foodie is someone who seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger.

A self-acclaimed ‘foodie’ will often also be associated with the Instagram selfie!

But fear not diners here’s a few ways to identify if you’re out for dinner with a foodie!

  • They’ll most likely exclaim their status as a foodie “I just LOVE eating, I’m such a foodie”
  • They use the term ‘exotic’ or ‘gourmet’ far more than necessary
  • They’ll continually tell you about that one time they made their own béarnaise sauce.
  • They question the wait staff on every item on the menu, only to go with their original choice.
  • They spend forever deciding which wine will go best with their chicken schnitty, oh and they must test it first! Just to give you a play by play on the flavours on their palate.
  • If you don’t post about it on Facebook, did you really even eat it?
  • And let’s not forget the several photos that accompany each meal.
    • Bonus points if they stand on a chair to get the right angle

Ok let’s admit it, we’re all a little bit guilty of at least one of these.

Whether you’re in a restaurant or indulging on street food you’ve got to admit, thinking about food 24/7 is a really hard job and keeping up with the label of “food appreciator” takes some dedication.

Well lucky for you foodies we have the perfect restaurant to meet your Snapchat/ Instagram needs right here in Coffs Harbour! Ribeye on Vernon dishes up selfie worthy dishes, and our wines are already matched to their recommended dishes to save you the hard work!

Ever wonder why the steak at Ribeye on Vernon tastes so delicious, what is it that sets us apart?

Well, apart from our talented chefs that is… our friends Teys Australia provide us with premium graded beef, from real Australian farmers.

We are always being asked about our steaks and where they come from. Well, thanks to Teys we can offer you that very information!

Ribeye On Vernon

Foodies eat your heart out! All the information you could want about your meal is available right here and our staff are more than happy to talk your ear off about it!

A New Years Mexican Fiesta

Feliz Navidad!…Or Merry Christmas from Mexico!

Just like here in Australia, Christmas in Mexico is usually warm and mild, families excitedly go out and purchase gifts, they prepare a feast to share with their loved ones and decorate their homes for the festive season. But just as you would expect, every culture and every family has it’s own traditions and ways in which they celebrate.

Unlike the typical fairy lights from Kmart we see hanging up around our neighbourhood every year, the houses and streets of Mexico are illuminated with candles and handmade lanterns.

The celebration of las posadas (Christmas) is a nine day practice leading up to Christmas, beginning on the 16th December and finishing on Buena Noche (Christmas Eve). On the ninth day a procession is led by the children through the town and up to the church as a re-enactment of the journey to Bethlehem made by the holy family.

Here a nativity scene is played out, a feast is held and the children are entertained with piñatas before the town gathers for midnight mass. Small celebrations then continue through to February where they come to an end with a “Candlemas” service and traditional feast of tamales and cake.

While we might not have piñatas, copious amounts of candles, or biblical re-enactments, but here at the C.ex Coffs we are bringing in the Ano Nuevo (New Year) with our own version of a Mexican celebration by bringing back our Mexican fiesta and Ribs Buffet! Come and grab a Corona with Lime, and indulge yourself with some delicious nachos, tacos and burritos.

Forget the Piñata, jump in the photo booth and capture some hilarious moments with your loved ones! Throw on a sombrero and grab a photo between meals.

Don’t be a perzoso mexicano (or lazy Mexican), call us now for your post-Christmas celebrations before tables book out!

 So Feliz Navidad y Feliz Año Nuevo from all of us here at the C.ex!
