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.

As part of a garden-based educational expansion, The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) has announced the opening of a new “Edible Academy.”

 

The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.
