Mixology mixer has launched several new teambuilding and stress-relief kits that offer fun virtual experiences. From coffee and chocolate tastings to hypnotherapy, Mixology Mixer’s activities are a great way to recalibrate and spend time together.

Founded by celebrity event planner Loni Paige, Miami-based Mixology Mixer was created during the pandemic to employ out-of-work bartenders while restaurants and bars closed around the country.

Attendees are sure to be pleased when a Mixology Mixer box shows up on their doorsteps! Here’s a sampler of virtual experience kits available. 

Stress Relief
Stress/Anxiety Relief Hypnotherapy: Dan Candell, who travels the world teaching people to release anxiety quickly and gain confidence on demand via hypnosis, leads this teambuilding session. The kit includes a daily gratitude journal, eye mask, mini bottle of bubbles, 20-minute guided hypnosis, and one-hour virtual hypnotherapy class with explanations on stress and anxiety.

But First, Coffee: Guided by Mixology Mixer’s experts, attendees learn about two different varieties of coffee. The kit includes a pour-over coffee maker, a coffee grinder, two types of coffee beans and biscotti.  

Paint & Sip: Groups are sure to bond while designing their own personalized wine glasses and learning about two different wines on a virtual call with a wine expert. The kit consists of two bottles of wine, two plastic wine tumbler glasses, and a variety of paints, glitter, rhinestones and glue to create a masterpiece.

Engage with peers and leaders in Plano, Texas, during this learning and networking event.

The Texas Association of Convention & Visitor Bureaus has announced the location of its 2023 Winter Conference. Attendees will gather in Plano, Texas, from January 17-20, 2023. The yearly event gives destination marketing organization staff and leadership the opportunity to learn from expert presenters, meet industry mentors, and find camaraderie in an atmosphere of learning and innovation.


Event hosts can choose whether the view rotates or stays put.

The iconic Reunion Tower in downtown Dallas will soon welcome a new restaurant, Crown Block steakhouse. Reunion Tower restaurants have been renown over the years for their slowly rotating view of the city. However, owners and husband-wife business partners Kim Canteenwalla and Elizabeth Blau have chosen to keep the dining area stationary. The previous restaurant, Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty, spun 360 degrees, but it closed in 2020 during the pandemic.
