• New York Hilton Midtown keeps colleagues buzzing with beekeeping team-building

    POSTED March 26, 2018

This spring, New York Hilton Midtown will open its green rooftop to 450,000 honeybees for the second season in support of the declining honeybee population. It’s not just an environmental exercise; the bees make for a fun team-building experience and their honey is incorporated in the kitchen’s meals.

Here’s how you can get your clients and colleagues buzzing:

Beekeeping experience: Groups can book one-on-one beekeeping experience with the hotel’s fourth-generation beekeeper Andrew Coté and learn how to harvest honey.

Breakout apiary tour: Through the hands-on exploration of a living beehive with Andrew, attendees will walk away with a better understanding of the importance of the honeybee population.

Group dining: Harvesting approx. 300 pounds of honey annually, the honey is incorporated into dishes to further amplify the hotel's seasonal cuisine, such as a breakfast honeycomb station and honey fried chicken sandwiches.

It isn’t solely up to the entertainer. The planner, venue and production company are all part of the equation. 


Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month?! In Fairfield County, CT, that can only mean one thing: Melt Mobile, the grilled cheese food truck, is hitting the road again! Owners Darlene Andersen and Diana Hall typically park their truck outside the Greenwich Library, but Melt Mobile is also available for private events ranging from corporate events to picnics and more. They cater to groups with a minimum of 50 and max out at 300.
