Could you really say no to a crate of Heineken Beer (on-the-house) and a sofa you get to share with your friends over a UEFA Champions League semi-final match? I could never. On 23rd April, 2014 we got a chance to be a part of the worldwide #ShareTheSofa campaign where we watched the semi-final live and drank chilled Heineken right in my living room. The Heineken team came in during the day to setup a Heineken Sofa, a table and more bar accessories and left a crate of Heineken Beer and lots of ice so that it was chilled and ready for the evening.
I was joined by Naina, Prateeq & Bharat & we all shared the sofa for the beery football fun evening. The semi-final between Real Madrid & Bayern München even witnessed a goal which was a relief since the previous match had been a 0-0 bust. Here are some pics we managed to capture during our #ShareTheSofa evening. What a fun night!
The Heineken setup in my living room during the day.
The beer went straight into the freezer to prep it for the night.
Even though I’d like to call myself the ‘selfie queen’ it is hard to get everyone in the pic…ESPECIALLY when you are consuming beer. That’s Naina, me & Prateeq.
Well into the night, the match finally started.
As much as I like going out and drinking, drinking at home on a casual evening with your friends and no pressure of booking a cab back home, etc has its own charm. Bonus when the alcohol is on the house and a football match in front of you. Thank you Heineken of giving us such a kick-ass evening. The sofa was the highlight for me. It had red stars on it! Man I wish I get to do this again sometime. Lets not even get to the next morning however.
