Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) hosted A Bite of the Ballroom on March 24 in Seawell Ballroom to introduce the facility’s six new catering partners over creative cocktails and tasty hors d’oeuvres and to showcase what theatrically trained event managers can do with the ballroom’s Broadway-quality lighting and sound systems. 

Biscuits and Berries, Catering by Design, Epicurean Group, Occasions Catering, Serendipity Catering and Sodexo Live! (Centerplate) are providing service for DCPA-managed venues including the 10,000-square-foot Seawell Ballroom, 1,600-square-foot Directors Room, Helen Bonfils Theatre Complex lobby and other spaces as available depending on performance schedules. SODEXO Live! also has been selected to provide beverage service, which means that all DCPA venues are managed by one beverage provider.

“We are delighted to expand the catering options available to our corporate, civic and nonprofit partners,” says DCPA Chief Operating Officer Gretchen Hollrah. “The expertise of these caterers paired with the theatrical vision of our events team makes for an experience that is incomparable in the region.”

Another new development at DCPA is the launch of HD broadcast services last year to expand the facility’s production capabilities and meet the growing requirements of businesses to connect with both local and global audiences. 

DCPA is one of the largest non-profit theatre organizations in the nation.

Stepping outside of meeting rooms and experiencing a destination is often the difference between a successful gathering and one that is less than memorable. A smart way to accomplish this is scheduling time to check out local breweries, wineries and food halls, where there tends to be many choices to accommodate various tastes and a range of price points. Here is the latest food and beverage news of interest to groups from around Colorado.

 

Colorado distilleries like their brethren in the state’s vibrant craft brewery industry offer many terrific places for groups to sip, sample and gather. It’s hard to beat the local vibe, neat spaces and flexible food options. 

Dry Land Distillers is one of the newest options, recently opening a tasting room and cocktail lounge inside its new distillery at 519 Main St. in Longmont. Kelly Dressman is serving as events manager.

The Numbers

 

Sometimess a boardroom just won't cut it for a meeting. When you want to lighten the mood, create a fun atmosphere or invite your team to an elevated happy hour, consider booking space in one of Colorado’s many distilleries. 

From breathtaking mountain views and intimate event spaces to cock- tail-making classes and sampling sessions, distilleries offer a comfortable setting for meetings, events, team-building and everything in between.
