D'Amico Catering has officially opened Bushel & Peck, the Mill City Museum's new cafe. 

An approachble lunch menu, new weekend brunch, and wine and beer options round out the menu. Later this spring, the cafe will fill with fully updated décor; a food truck also is in the works.

“D’Amico & Partners has operated the Mill City Café and event space since the Minnesota Historical Society opened the museum in 2003,” says Larry D’Amico, co-owner of D’Amico& Partners. “The entire Downtown East area has evolved and grown dramatically since the museum opened. It was time for an update so we could not only better serve museum visitors but also expand the café’s service and broaden its community appeal to also include local residents and employees of nearby businesses who have limited lunch or early dinner options, farmer’s market attendees, riverfront visitors and passersby, downtown event goers and others.”

The name and concept are a tie-in to the Mill City Famer's Market, which runs year-round at the museum. Dean Taylor, general manager, will continue to run the café.

Café hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Mondays during July and August) and Sunday 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Mill City Museum was D’Amico Catering’s first exclusive vendor partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society.

The two organizations announced a new partnership last year at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul, where D’Amico Catering manages the event spaces and the museum café.

“We are thrilled to continue our wonderful partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society, and we look forward to working on some of their other intriguing venues in the near future,” says D’Amico.

What are innovative bartenders mixing these days? That’s what Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits, a leading distributor of beverage alcohol, set out to discover during their coast-to-coast Liquid Insights Tour. Over 111 days, Brian Masilionis, the distributor’s director of national accounts and strategy, led a team of industry-leading mixologists to sample more than 400 drinks in 83 of the hottest restaurants, bars and hotels across the country.

 

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

Richmond, the capital of Virginia, is a city rich in history. It’s here, in 1775, that Patrick Henry famously declared “Give me liberty or give me death.” And while the extensively renovated Hilton Richmond Downtown can’t trace its roots back quite that far, it is housed in the historic former Miller & Rhoads department store, which dates back to the end of the 19th century.
