The recently renovated Market House by D’Amico in the Minnesota History Center, just opened its doors on Sept. 20. Located near the entrance of the museum, the café features an updated design and a menu that focuses on fresh, local and healthy foods.

“Market House by D’Amico pays tribute to our Minnesota and community roots by offering fresh, authentic and healthy cuisine sourced from our favorite local and organic purveyors,” says Larry D’Amico, co-owner of D’Amico & Partners. “The Market House experience connects Minnesota History Center visitors to Minnesota’s past and present agricultural movement with a menu inspired by the local farmers market, as well as the grainery, butcher and bakery. We are proud to partner with the Minnesota Historical Society to help build the Minnesota History Center as a premier Twin Cities attraction and event venue.”

D’Amico Catering took over the former Café Minnesota in February with plans to offer a new menu and conduct a space renovation. The Market House by D’Amico will have a menu filled with seasonal salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, burgers, soups, and desserts. They will also coordinate some items with the museums featured exhibits.

Situated close to the museum’s stores, no entry fee is required to visit the café. So whether you’re visiting the museum, working nearby,or just looking for a great place to eat, you can easily stop in and dine.

“The D’Amico name is widely recognized in the Twin Cities, and it’s synonymous with great food, exceptional style and impeccable service,” says Dennis Meissner, interim deputy director, programs and head of collections management. “The name will help to attract more attention to the café, the attractive menu will draw guests in, and the excellent food and service will keep them coming back. We are excited to offer this wonderful amenity for our guests to enhance their overall Minnesota History Center experience.”

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.

 

Results from the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2022 Incentive Travel Destination Preferences & Their Impact on Motivation confirmed that interest in incentive travel as a motivating sales reward is at an all-time high. 91% of 405 survey respondents described group incentive travel as extremely or very motivating compared to 80% last year. Individual incentive travel was rated even higher as a motivational award at 96% versus 84% last year. 

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather.
