On Oct. 21, the new George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater opened in Salt Lake City.

The grand opening event took place from Oct. 21–23. The event featured performances from Brian Stokes Mitchell—a Tony Award-winning performer—Megan Hilty, actress in Smash and Tony-nominated performer, and performances from Ballet West, Utah’s Opera Chorus, Repertory Dance Theatre and Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company.

The theater’s performance hall holds 2,500 seats, and features a six-story lobby and retractable glass walls. The theater also has a 150-seat Black Box theater, which will host local performances and events. Additionally, the Encore Bistro will be open for breakfast and lunch, and will be open for dinner on show nights.

“The Eccles Theater is a beautiful and welcomed addition to our thriving downtown cultural district,” says Scott Beck, president/CEO, Visit Salt Lake. “In addition to it being a beautiful building, its LEED certification shows a continuation of our destination’s commitment to sustainability.”

Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino is completing the second phase of its multimillion-dollar renovation, resulting in new guest rooms, an adults-only pool and private outdoor event space. 

 

Walter Bond’s latest book, “Swim! How a Shark, a Suckerfish, and a Parasite Teach You Leadership,” Mentoring, and Next Level Success has landed itself on two top seller lists this year. Ranking No. 15 in the month of October and No. 7 in November as one of the best business books, “Swim!” is a must-read for anyone looking to achieve greatness in the corporate world.

 

Formerly known as the Blackstone Hotel, the property will reopen as the Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel in spring 2020. Located in the Blackstone District, the oldest neighborhood in Omaha, Nebraska, the lively area is home to some of the city’s best bars, restaurants and nightlife. Its new name, Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel pays tribute to the original Blackstone Hotel’s Cottonwood Room bar that housed a Cottonwood tree growing from the center of the circular bar.
