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.  

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.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
