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.

Colorado brings home its fair share of recognition

As travel comes returns in many parts of the world, Forbes Travel Guide unveiled its 2022 Star Award winners on April 26, 2022. The United States debuted 10 hotels, three restaurants and seven spas on the Five-Star list, while London claimed the title of the city with the most Five-Star hotels worldwide at 21 on the list. On the local level, six Colorado entities landed a Five-Star nod, while 12 received Four-Star recognition. 

 

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.
