In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.  

 

This fall, chef Jorge Guzman will open a new restaurant, Petite León, in the former Blackbird Cafe space in South Minneapolis. The restaurant will serve dishes with Mexican, Spanish, French, and American influences, that aim to be approachable, creative and delicious.  

 

Coming to the historic Fort Worth Stockyards this fall, Hotel Drover is a 200-room Autograph Collection boutique hotel and rustic resort. Named for the legendary drovers, who roamed the Texas plains for decades moving livestock over long distances, Hotel Drover is a celebration of the stockyards’ Western legacy. The property will include 40,000 square feet of indoor “rustic luxe” and outdoor meeting and event space.
