Good Old Imec
Imec is a classy operation. Everything it does is top-notch.
For its 30th anniversary Imec threw a dinner party for 400 in Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert in Brussels.
For those who don’t know the Galerieries Royales it’s a bit like Piccadilly’s Burlington Arcade – very swish, tres snob, lined with posh shops. Normally a public thoroughfare, Imec took it over for the evening.
After the first course a lady from an upstairs window started singing an aria from La Traviata.
Other operatic snippets were delivered by strolling singers.
Washed down by an excellent Bordeaux – Sirius 2010 served in magnums – you could feel the collective spirits soaring.
