There may be an array of events and activities that encompass the Texas experience, but for those in Austin, The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel’s True Texas Grilling Experience is the newest to join the ranks.  

The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel’s newest attraction known as The Texas Experience is an interactive culinary experience in which guests can experience the flavors and cooking techniques of Texas firsthand. 

To best enjoy your Texan experience, Danelle Awtrey, director of sales & marketing, says that the best locations in the hotel are the Capital Ballroom A, which is 3,800 square feet and can hold 80-100 people, or the Capital Foyer, which includes French doors that open up to the 7th Street Terrace.  

In addition to The Texas Experience, the hotel’s chef and culinary team are regularly updating their catering menus to reflect food & beverage trends. Shifting from food, the hotel also offers a variety of meeting and event facilities that are perfect for occasions of any size, along with the services of six event planning professionals who are always ready to help make your event the best it can be.  

Whether you’re searching for a delicious Texas tasting experience, puppy-filled break rooms (which the hotel is partnering with a local animal shelter to make a reality for guests during meeting breaks), a hotel close to some of Austin’s greatest attractions, or boozy popsicles to help get you through the Texas heat, you’ll surely find it all at InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel.  

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

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.
