Downtown Manhattan, filled with industrial chic spaces and effortlessly stylish people, is the epitome of cool, but fighting traffic at the tunnels to make it to an event? Definitely not cool. So where do you hold an event when you want that New York City flair without the hassle? The Loft at 350 in West Orange! This stylish venue is tucked inside the Wilshire Grand Hotel, a full-service hotel with 89 rooms and 13 suites. While the Wilshire Grand Hotel has a very classic and traditional look, prepare to be taken aback when you walk down the hallway of the hotel’s main entrance or arrive via the separate entrance. Hardwood floors, curvy modern furnishings and white brick walls echo the raw sophistication of Soho. The all-white space feels serene and stylish, while LED lighting allows for any color or image to be projected throughout the room. Airy and open, the 4,000-square-foot room is flexible and can accommodate 215 seated guests with a dance floor or over 350 guests for a cocktail reception.

October is the month of fall color viewing, pumpkin picking, and pizza. Yes, October is National Pizza Month, and if you’re looking to commemorate the occasion, head to New Jersey.

Others may disagree—let’s make that, others will certainly disagree—but last year Food & Wine Magazine named New Jersey the best pizza state in America, followed by Connecticut and New York in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively. Pennsylvania landed in seventh place and Massachusetts nabbed 10th place. 

 

With 342 acres, an 18-hole golf course, 150-slip marina and full-service spa, Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina, had more than enough to keep gorps busy. But the AAA Four Diamond property has just released an updated menu of teambuilding experiences. ““Our dedicated events team takes pride in curating unforgettable and unique group activities that showcase our beautiful location and help to ensure one-of-a-kind meeting experiences right here on the Eastern Shore,” says Cari Ruppert, Director of Sales, Marketing and Events.
