Popular Catskills destination Emerson Resort & Spa has partnered with Table to Farm Tours to educate guests about local history and farming practices.

Table to Farm Tours is available year-round, and their tours rotate based on the season. They have partnerships with producers from Ulster, Delaware, Schoharie, and Greene counties in New York State.

“The guests tour the various facilities, taste products, learn processes and gain knowledge about the local history. In the Catskills in the winter, the select tours are focused on distilleries, breweries, historical attractions, creameries, farm-to-table cuisine and local shopping. The same concepts are used for spring, summer and fall, while also incorporating the area’s apple orchards, vineyards, cideries, cattle farms, and fruit and vegetable farms,” says Tamara Murray, Emerson marketing and sales director.

The tours begin on a passenger van, which can hold up to 15 people, making the Table to Farm Tours a great way to experience the Catskills in small team-building activities.

“Guests will take a ride in their comfortable custom van and can take travelers on a full or half-day tour (depending on their time frame), where they have an opportunity to meet individual farmers, hear their stories, learn about their culinary philosophies and sample local fare,” Murray says. 

The Kimpton Pittman Hotel has opened in Dallas’ storied Deep Ellum neighborhood, serving as the first hotel in the neighborhood and providing doorstep access to some of the city’s most popular shops, breweries, dining and live music venues.

 

The fare and flare of Spain has arrived in downtown Grand Rapids with the opening of the new MDRD, pronounced Madrid, on the 27th floor of the tower at Amway Grand Plaza Hotel (previously Cygnus27 restaurant). While the feel and flavors have changed, the unparalleled views of downtown and the Grand River means that this space still provides the best skyline dining in the city. Here, every seat is the “best seat in the house.”

 

It’s not everyday you get the chance to log off, ditch the meetings and let loose with a can of spray paint and a blank canvas. 
Graffiti Arts, a street art, graffiti and mural agency specializing in branded art projects pairs clients with a nationwide network of local graffiti artists, giving guests a creative outlet with a variety of hands-on and team-building activities.
