For the cocktail selections, you can expect local Canadian cheese and artisanal charcuterie being served alongside your choice of Canadian wine, Beau's Lug Tread or other non-alcoholic beverages. It's expected that you're to spend about an hour long in the air for this.

Every guest attending should be arriving to the welcome tent in Ottawa City Hall 30 to 4 minutes before your scheduled experience. They will welcome you Oscar-style with a red carpet that will include appetizers and an aperitif. 

After the event has ended, you're put back on the ground to stick around for some after-dinner drinks in the welcome tent.
