Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option. The mobility of the truck allows for the hotel to have a smaller scale menu and adapt to guests’ changing tastes.

The Gastro Truck offers a variety of signature sandwiches, with highlights including the Short Dip featuring braised short rib, smoked provolone, crispy shallot, and horseradish spread and the CCBLT, a twist on the BLT featuring a fresh crab cake and old bay mayo. The menu can also be completely customized to meet groups’ varied needs.

The expansive Grand View Lodge is getting even bigger. Two-ish hours from Minneapolis, the resort is appealing to planners with its new hotel and conference center it’s planning as part of its $30 million expansion. The 60-room boutique hotel—simply called North—is situated to become the perfect venue for groups looking to escape the city.

 

After four generations of Ruttger family ownership, the historic Lake Bemidji resort is now under new ownership. Mark and Karrie Nelson purchased Ruttger’s Birchmont Lodge at the conclusion of the 2017/18 season and will be expanding the property into a year-round resort.

The couple, who bring ten years of experience from previous ownership of a family resort on Cass Lake, plan to re-brand Ruttger’s as an upscale, year-round family vacation destination and retreat venue.

 

A historic landmark property has been completely overhauled and transformed into a new charming Midwest meeting place.
