John Van Etten, Mission Point Resort’s new superintendent of grounds and gardens, has planted a large hillside cocktail garden.

The garden, viewable through the windows of Chianti, the resort’s upscale restaurant, grows flowers, herbs and edible plants slated for use as syrups and garnishes in the resort’s new cocktail menu. Plantings include lavender, rosemary, lemon sage, lemon verbena, lemongrass, fennel, six types of basil and five types of mint.

Cocktail offerings will change with the garden’s flowers and herbs. 

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.

 

In 1927, Hilton Hotels’ founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas, will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.
