From Britain with Love – Vintage Movie Night & Whiskey Tasting at The Trestle Inn

On Thursday, August 1, 2013 the British American Business Council, in partnership with International House Philadelphia, hosted its final event in the second annual British Invasion 2013 series, From Britain with Love –Vintage Movie Night & Whiskey Tasting at The Trestle Inn. The night was a huge success with more than 50 attendees, filling the venue to capacity for a fabulous night of drinks, food, networking and fun while viewing “Tonite Let’s All Make Love in London,” the 1967 semi-documentary film made by Peter Whitehead about the swinging London scene of the sixties. The film, provided by International House Philadelphia, is an iconic pop concerto and a visual patchwork of 60’s culture, seen through the eyes of the people leading it — Pink Floyd, Mick Jagger, Michael Caine, Vanessa Redgrave, Allen Ginsberg, and Julie Christie, alongside counter-culture artists and other musicians who helped shape their generation and future ones to come. The film was presented in the background, allowing guests to fully engage in networking while savoring the delicious food and drinks, and enjoying the retro venue.

BABC guests received a complimentary whiskey flight from The Edrington Group that included Highland Park 12, The Black Grouse, Macallans 12 and The Famous Grouse. Hope Krebs, BABC Board President welcomed guests and provided a brief discussion about the organization and upcoming activities. Following Hope’s remarks two winning business cards were drawn for a set of two tickets to a Philadelphia Union game during the 2014 season and a bottle of The Macallan 12. After the drawing, guests returned to mingling and enjoying drinks and food from The Trestle Inn. The program continued into the night, well after the scheduled end time.

The BABC encourages those who were unable to attend the event to visit The Trestle Inn, owned by BABC Marketing & Communications Chairman, Ian Cross.
