As the PR & Marketing Manager of ultra-cool food and beverage group, Buzz Concepts,Francisco Ricafort has got a pretty awesome job. In case you didn't already know, Buzz Concepts are those cool cats who've brought you all of your favourite hang-out spots such as Volar, FLY, Lily & Bloom and the recently opened Socialito. We've personally hosted many an Electric sekki party at Volar and FLY over the past couple of years and each one has been better than the last. To put it simply, Francis' job is to, "Make sure people ingest enough alcohol at any one of [Buzz's] venues so that they get intoxicated enough to feel like they had the best time of their life!" What? Oh, just kidding! On a serious note, though, Francis assists the group in keeping up-to-date with "what's hot and what's not" in the nightlife scene; he's in charge of staying on top of what kind of environment, atmosphere and music different groups of people in Hong Kong are enjoying at the moment. So, have you got job-envy yet?
