Celebrating its 90th anniversary this summer, Seattle’s Mayflower Park Hotel started life as the Bergonian Hotel on July 16, 1927, and has been in continuous operation ever since. The hotel was named after original owner Stephen Berg and his love of The Oregonian newspaper. In salute to its 90 years of service and with a nod to its past, Mayflower Park created The Bergonian cocktail. Raise a glass to honor an icon in Seattle’s hospitality history.

As the number of vaccinations across the country increases, the amount of live events and gatherings will hopefully rise with it. However, that doesn’t mean the way people gather will go back to normal instantly: there may be an adjustment period before bars, theaters, stadiums and churches are all full of people again.

 Spacing, social distancing, and creativity will be vital for planners and venues in the meantime, and tools like staging, seating, and more will be crucial for the execution of these.
