Jingle Jam was held on Jan. 25 at the Philadelphia Downtown Marriott. The event was co-hosted by ILEA and HSMAI and was themed with 1920s “Great Gatsby” flair. Attendees dressed in their flapper best to relive the Roaring Twenties while networking with new friends and reconnecting with old ones. 

 

This creation is one of the distillery’s most requested drinks and perfectly refreshing in the summertime.

INGREDIENTS:
— 1.5 oz. Bluecoat American Dry Gin
— .25 oz. Dolin Dry Vermouth
— .5 oz. fresh lemon juice
— .75 oz. Penn’s Woods Syrup*

*Combine 40g fresh dill, 20g fresh basil and 10g dried coriander into one quart of simple syrup. Blend mixture, strain, and store in an airtight container and refrigerate.

 

The International Live Events Association (ILEA) Dallas Chapter spread some holiday cheer at its annual Holiday Giveback. The organization chose to work with Senior Source and the Diversicare facility. Members of the group held a party for the facility complete with caroling, live music, holiday crafts and bingo—and of course plenty of cookies and punch. The group also collected items for Diversicare’s wish list, along with a $5 donation from each member who registered for the networking happy hour that followed the party.

 

The commoditization of the live events industry causes concern and prompts discussion.
