A new gastro pub, Tin Cup, located at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center has officially opened its doors.

Formerly The Grille, the restaurant can hold 88 guests and now features a new menu and design.

"Tin Cup has that gathering place vibe, where friends can meet up to enjoy a freshly made salad or sandwich," says Brad Ott, director of operations. "There's a casual air about it, conducive to hoisting a cold one after a hard-day of work or a hard-played 18 holes."

The restaurant features American pub-style cuisine; menu highlights include 19th Hole Angus Beef Sliders, Sweet Potato Fries, Fried Cod Fritters & Chips, Cobb Salad, 9-Iron Steak Salad, Pastrami Sandwich, Popcorn Shrimp Wrap and the Tin Cup Burger topped with thick-cut bacon.

Worldly wines by the glass and domestic/regional/imported beers are offered, with taps that feature local micro brews including Downers Grove-based Alter Brewing.

Tin Cup will offer a Happy Hour Monday through Thursday from 3–6 p.m., with $3 draft beer, $7 well drinks, $8 loaded nachos, $7 Bogey Wings and $5 chips and salsa.

The seating are includes a 40-seat patio with a patio that offers a Bags gaming area, heat lamps and fire pits, and live music every Friday beginning in May.

Golf simulator rooms with private bar tables and stools and more than 80 international courses all from one location. The full-swing simulators by Foresight Sports give a true-to-life virtual experience and an honest evaluation of every shot. Valid for up to four players, the golf simulator experience costs $35 per hour, Monday - Thursday and $45 per hour, Friday–Sunday.

It’s always good to have market data for a glimpse at what’s happening in the meetings and events industry and know there are credentials for professionals to work toward. The Events Industry Council (EIC) has released its 2022 Q1 Global Business Events Barometer earlier this week and announced its inaugural class of CMP Fellows this spring.

 

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.
