Food enthusiasts of Chicago’s northwest region will be pleased to know that Meet Chicago Northwest is launching Restaurant Week 2014. Meet Chicago Northwest is the area’s official destination marketing organization and has created the inaugural event in partnership with over 30 local dining establishments, all offering affordable three-course prix fixe lunch and dinner menus.

"As this is a quieter time of the year for many restaurants, the promotion is designed to entice food enthusiasts to get out and discover a new Chicago Northwest restaurant or type of cuisine perhaps they have not yet experienced," said Dave Parulo, president of Meet Chicago Northwest. "The prix-fixe menus offer exceptional values and many restaurants have created exclusive menus that will be sure to influence diners to return after Chicago Northwest Restaurant Week."

Restaurant Week will be held from February 20-March 2. Lunch menu price points will vary from $15-$25 and dinner menu prices from $25-$35. A complete list of participating restaurants and prix-fixe menus can be seen on the official Chicago Northwest Restaurant Week 2014 website.

SCS Global Services (SCS), a third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development, has launched its Zero Waste Standard, “Zero Waste for Events.”

 

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
