evian® @ SOBEWFF

evian® is making a splash at the  Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE with Chef Richard Blais on Instagram and Twitter!

evian Natural Spring Water returns to the South Beach Food & Wine Festival as an official water sponsor for the 12th consecutive year. This year, evian has partnered with TV personality and Atlanta based restaurateur, Chef Richard Blais, for an interactive takeover of the @evianwater Instagram account to provide the social community with a behind-the-scenes view of the epicurean festival with a Live young® twist.

Beginning Friday February 15, 2013, the week leading up to #SOBEWFF, Chef Blais will kick off the #evianeats Foodie Photo Series on Instagram, where a fun, foodie theme will be posted once a day on the @evianwater Instagram account. Instagram users are invited to upload photos of their own culinary creations and dishes via Instagram and Twitter (@evianwater) using hash tag #evianeats. Then, Chef Blais will take over the @evianwater Instagram account live from #SOBEWFF and will tweet and Instagram all the action live! So whether you are at the festival or not... join in on the fun!

Oh yeah, And if you are wondering where NYC Sidewalker will be? We'll be at the SOBEWFF Grand Tasting Village, inside the evian® interactive photo booth making all the funny faces... Woohoo!
