Even during a worldwide pandemic, the hospitality industry is working to make people feel at ease. Though many hotels can only open their doors to health care workers and first responders, they’re reaching out to their local communities with bright messages in clever, socially-distanced ways. Through the heart-shaped lighting of windows at night, hotels are serving as beacons of hope in cities across the country. 

Seattle’s Foodz Catering is preparing to move into its new home, nicknamed the “factory,” in the Georgetown neighborhood this summer. Four times the size of its current headquarters, it will include a new kitchen, offices and a warehouse. Toast the new digs with the company’s Blueberry Mule—the recipe raises the bar on the sober-curious trend.

INGREDIENTS

—3 oz. fresh-pressed blueberry juice

—juice of half a lime

—ginger beer

—shaved ice

—sprig of mint

—lime wedge

 

In 1919, the Red Cross Convalescent House at Vancouver Barracks was dedicated. The house provided comfort for patients at the Vancouver Barracks hospital in Vancouver, Washington. Two years later, it became the noncommissioned officers club and service club. Today, the historic property is known simply as the Red Cross Building and serves as a beautiful backdrop for special events.

 

Take note of these seven pros who are making their mark in the meetings and events industry.

I was completely enthralled with the event planning process. … This experience was my jumpstart into events and I was hooked.”
