McEvoy Ranch, located in Petaluma, Calif., is setting a precedent. Through its brand new program, the 550-acre ranch of Marin County is welcoming outside companies and groups to host corporate and special events for the first time. Guests will have a pick of six customizable indoor and outdoor venues, allowing for a variety of events, gatherings and meetings.
Wine tastings and pub crawls are both popular ways for planners to end a busy day of meetings, but if you’re looking for something a little more unusual, book a private tasting at Melovino Meadery. What’s mead, you say? It’s fermented honey similar in drinkability to wine, just without the grapes. Melovino Meadery, located behind a shopping mall in Vauxhall, is the state’s first official meadery, and tours and tastings are a fun way to get a group interacting.
The Other Room, a customizable loft in the heart of Minneapolis, offers something a little different.
