Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option. The mobility of the truck allows for the hotel to have a smaller scale menu and adapt to guests’ changing tastes.

The Gastro Truck offers a variety of signature sandwiches, with highlights including the Short Dip featuring braised short rib, smoked provolone, crispy shallot, and horseradish spread and the CCBLT, a twist on the BLT featuring a fresh crab cake and old bay mayo. The menu can also be completely customized to meet groups’ varied needs.

This fall, Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, known for its rich cultural diversity, will see the opening of the 98-room SOPHY Hyde Park. The hotel will now include Mesler, a restaurant whose name literally translates to “to mix and mingle.”

 

About 5,000 people are in Chicago this week for the 2018 annual meeting of the American Bar Association, headquartered at Hyatt Regency Chicago, taking place Aug. 2-7.

 

When the Chicago Architecture Center opens at its new home at 111 East Wacker Drive this August, the city will gain a new cultural destination—and event planners will gain a sparkling new venue to consider for events.

“The view of the river and prominent buildings at that corner is breathtaking,” says Deb Rodak, manager of group sales and business development for the 20,000-square-foot facility, situated above the dock for Chicago’s First Lady Cruises.
