Hosted by Starstreet Precinct, powered by South China Morning Post Marketing Services and sponsored by American Express, this year’s event promises the most fun at the colorful and artistic neighbourhood. From 2 pm to 6 pm on 22 October 2011, patrons will be able to enjoy the delightful offerings at 15 eclectic dining establishments and 10 design-driven lifestyle stores. The area will be turned into a whimsical culinary world with “flogos” – foam-made cutleries, ice-cream and many other delicious food icons floating in the air. Patrons will also meet street performers, body painters and musicians who are ready to greet and entertain visitors.
Fabulous prizes await those who complete the walk by visiting all the participating venues on the day. These include HK$15,000 worth of travel vouchers from Swire Travel* and many others.
All profits of the Starstreet Gourmet and Wine Walk will be donated to St. James’ Settlement to support its charity project, Grant-in-aid Brightens Children’s Lives. The project will improve the learning conditions of underprivileged children aged between 3 and 15 in Hong Kong.

About Starstreet Precinct
Starstreet Precinct, centred around Three Pacific Place and comprising mainly Star Street, Moon Street, Sun Street, and Wing Fung Street, is a destination for those who prefer unique lifestyle choices.
Back in the 1900s, it was the location of Hong Kong Electric’s power plant in Wan Chai. Today, the precinct has evolved into an emerging dining area with strong artistic overtones, thanks to a group of creative talents, designers and free-thinking restaurateurs who have filled the area with cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries, florists and home design outlets.
Together with a thoughtfully landscaped environment and a Three Pacific Place Link connecting the precinct to the rest of the Pacific Place complex, these shops have turned the area into a Hong Kong lifestyle community.
