The wildly popular Magnolia Brewery in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood has a new addition: Magnolia Hall, a 6,500-square-foot private event space
connected to the always-bustling brewery and taproom. Just a 10-minute walk from Oracle Stadium, where the Giants play, it’s perfect for a pre- or post-game function and for more formal events, too.

Magnolia Hall offers a blank space for creating events for up to 350 guests standing or 200 seated, and has its own bar, private entrance and restrooms. Full A/V connectivity includes two 55-inch monitors and an LCD projector that has a 20-foot projection span. Six food packages are available, along with planning assistance from Magnolia’s full-service team. Guests with an interest in the craft beer scene can check out cutting-edge brewing techniques involving the city’s first “coolship” (an open-top brewing vessel in which malt and grain cool and absorb elements from the atmosphere before fermentation), as well as a dozen oak foedors (specialized barrels) used to age beer in view of guests. Tours, of course, are available. Magnolia also offers an indoor beer garden space, a semiprivate Brewer’s Deck and several lounge spaces that can be reserved for groups. 
 

The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.

 

Despite an overall crushing year for the hospitality industry in Pennsylvania, some seeds of hope have been planted and are finally sprouting in the form of new hotel openings. These new properties on the horizon have ample meeting and event space up for grabs, all within close proximity of each other. As capacities allowances increase, check out the new real estate for meetings and events at the following hotels.

 

Making the most of Minnesota’s ideal (and ever-fleeting) outdoor event season is a time-honored tradition, but outdoor venues hold a whole new appeal in a post-pandemic landscape. 
Plein air events can offer planners plenty of space to safely distance their guests as well as peace of mind to attendees still wary of in-person gatherings—as well as some much-needed screen-free interaction.
