RPM Events On The Water, located directly on the Chicago River, will be opening for private events mid-September. The Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises property will boast more than 6,000 square feet of event space, which will be able to host 250 guests for a seated function or 425 reception-style.

RPM Events On The Water offers iconic views of the waterfront with floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor terrace. Also, located in the River North neighborhood of downtown Chicago, the space is centrally located to several office buildings and hotels, allowing guests to walk or water taxi from within a half-mile radius.

"We will offer a fully customizable culinary experience with each event menu created by chef and partner Doug Psaltis and wine lists curated by Beverage Director Richard Hanauer, to provide guests with the best of RPM Restaurants," says R.J. Melman, Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises president. "We are set up to accommodate any request, from beautiful breakfast displays and live-action pasta and carving stations to plated luncheons and dessert carts."

Melman says the space can be used for any private event, including weddings, corporate breakfast meetings, rehearsal dinners, executive lunches, galas, fundraisers, mitzvahs, corporate dinners and everything in between. RMP Events On The Water has a grand ballroom, which can be divided into three independent spaces, each with access to the outdoor terrace. Guests can enter through a private entrance into the main foyer and then descend down a grand staircase past a pre-function room and a dedicated wedding suite before entering the grand ballroom.

"We are booking daily, everything from weddings and rehearsal dinners to lunch meetings, corporate holiday parties and even Bat Mitzvahs as far out as 2021," says Melman. "Official tours of the space will begin in early September once the space if fully complete and show-ready."

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.
