Food Bloggers LOVE Goodburger
Working under the notion that people like to watch their food being cooked, AMP3 PR client goodburger recently unveiled their new open-cooking concept at the Union Square location in mid February. With plans to carry this concept to the other 5 locations in the coming months, the Maiden Lane restaurant was the next to adopt the new look this week. Additionally, goodburger recently made changes to their burger seasoning and switched to a juicier, red Roma tomato and a leafier green lettuce. So far the response has been great, with many area food bloggers jumping on the goodburger bandwagon. See what great things bloggers have been saying:

This year’s Nolcha Fashion Week kicked off with a Pop-Up Showroom at The Empire Hotel Rooftop on Thursday, February 10th.
Nolcha presented 19 independent fashion brands, six of which were eco-friendly/sustainable. Press & Industry personnel were given the option to sign up for a Style Tour of the showroom with celebrity stylist, Jess Zaino of Style Network & Glamour.com, or they could browse the collections at their leisure. The onsite Beauty Oasis offered hair and make-up touch ups by Paul Mitchell and nails and lashes by Kiss. Following the event, guests were invited to a Cocktail Party to celebrate Nolcha Fashion Week.
The events continued on Friday, February 11th with a fashion presentation at 632 on Hudson. The townhouse’s kitchen was turned into a beauty bar while the rest of the space was used to showcase four participating Nolcha designers. Downstairs, the Fashion Director of Saks Fifth Avenue presented new trends on the runway.
Later on Friday night, Nolcha celebrated the launch of their new e-commerce platform: www.GlobalFashionBrands.com, with a launch party at Ava Lounge in the Dream Hotel in Midtown, Manhattan. The website will offer a unique opportunity for independent designers and retailers to create their own digital storefront, and savvy consumers the opportunity to shop locally for international brands.

After an intensive two month search, Nolcha in conjunction with Blazetrak.com announces the winner in their competition for the best independent fashion brand: womenswear designer, Abreu Rios (www.abreurios.com).
Nolcha and Blazetrak (both clients of AMP3 PR) had partnered to host a contest that would ultimately give one aspiring designer the opportunity of a lifetime to participate in Nolcha Fashion Week: New York in February 2011.

The cuts and finish are precise and overall the brand has great marketability. I look forward to assisting the brand growth.”
Thanks to the contest, Abreu Rios is now entitled to complimentary exhibition space at Nolcha Fashion Week; a two-hour consultation regarding target, retailers, supply chain, breakeven and scale of the line by Global Purchasing Group; free membership to Afingo.com plus featured spotlight and interview; a complete business formation package by Bizfilings.com; and a sourcing package that includes premium level membership to Source4Style, including complimentary swatches and sourcing consultation.
