Much like Oprah’s infamous reveal of free cars to those in her audience in 2004, Marilyn Denis—host of The Marilyn Denis Show—made an exciting announcement.

During her show—based in Canada—Denis explained she would give a Pittsburgh Getaway Package to all 75 audience members. Coordinated by VisitPittsburgh, the gift culminated Denis’ annual “10 Days of Giveaway” series.

The package feature two nights at the Fairmont Pittsburgh Hotel and free airline travel to and from Pittsburgh International Airport courtesy of Porter Airlines Inc.

"The Toronto market is a very important one for us, and we jumped at the opportunity to reach Marilyn Denis' audience," says Matthew Sterne, general manager of the Four Diamond Fairmont Pittsburgh. "We love Marilyn's Pittsburgh connection and know that she is a trusted source in Canada. We also know that visitors need only experience Pittsburgh once to understand what makes our city so special, and we look forward to welcoming these guests to Fairmont Pittsburgh."

The Pittsburgh prize package, which can be redeemed anytime during 2016, also includes complimentary meals and entry fees to some of Pittsburgh’s most unique restaurants and attractions, including:

  • The Andy Warhol Museum 
  • Duquesne Incline 
  • National Aviary 
  • Pittsburgh Tours and More
  • Monterey Bay Restaurant 
  • Church Brew Works 
  • Pamela’s Diner 
  • Primanti Brother's Restaurant 
  • Welcome PITTSBURGH Information Center and Gift Shop 

"This will generate excellent exposure for our city, provide an opportunity for us to share the Pittsburgh story with The Marilyn Denis Show viewers across Canada and to show why our city is being called 'cool,' 'hip' and a 'Must-See Place to Visit,'" says Craig Davis, president/CEO of VisitPittsburgh. "The Marilyn Denis Show wanted their audience to experience some of Marilyn's favorite Pittsburgh restaurants and attractions and to see things that that you can only find in Pittsburgh, and we look forward to welcoming her fans to our city next year."

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.

 

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.
