The Sheraton Austin Georgetown Hotel & Conference Center has opened an outdoor event space, Live Oak Patio, to reign in spring with outdoor events and celebrations. The venue is centered around a 200-year-old live oak tree and features an airy patio with scenic views of Rivery Park and the San Gabriel River. 

The Live Oak Patio can seat up to 130 guests for wedding ceremonies, up to 100 guests for seated dinners or up to 130 guests standing. It can also accommodate live music and entertainment.

The 222-room hotel boasts 30,000 square feet of meeting and event space enhanced by custom catering and expert planners, the Live Oak Patio now among its list of impressive venues.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
