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.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
