Beer Garden Dinner at Loews Ventana Canyon offers fun and interactive feast

Beer Garden Dinner at Loews Ventana Canyon offers fun and interactive feast 

TUCSON, Ariz. (November 6, 2012) – Loews Ventana Canyon has partnered with the local craft beer aficionados of Dragoon Brewing Company to offer its first Beer Garden Dinner November 16 at 6:30 p.m.

Building on the resort’s popular Blues, Brews and Barbeque Brunch, the dinner event offers an intimate interaction between guest and chef with Executive Chef Ken Harvey and Dragoon Brewing Company brewmaster Eric Greene leading a lively, interactive chef demonstration.  

Guests will enjoy four courses of barbeque dinner fare featuring fresh herbs grown right on the resort, each paired with one of Dragoon’s signature beers including West Coast-style IPA, Stronghold Session Ale, the traditional Belgian-style Oho Blanco, and The Uno – Russian Imperial Stout.

“Guests rarely get to interact with the chef who prepares their food or the vintner or brewmaster who makes their drink, and vice versa, so this is a really fun way to break down that barrier, educate our guests a bit, have some laughs and share some great food,” said Harvey. “After all, there’s no better way to connect with people than over great barbeque and great beer.”

The Beer Garden Dinner at Loews Ventana Canyon is $50 per person. Reservations are required by calling 520-615-5496.

Loews Ventana Canyon
Named the “First Environmentally Conceived Resort” by Architectural Digest in 1981, the resort was constructed into the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains with the mindset of preserving the natural habitat. The ½ mile Window Walk nature trail, designed by the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, features over 200 signs to educate guests on the flora and fauna of the Sonoran Desert.  In addition, the resort features complimentary stargazing on Wednesday and Saturday nights led by a professional astronomer with the resort’s high-powered telescope.

Located at 7000 North Resort Drive, the 398-guestroom Loews Ventana Canyon Resort features two Tom Fazio-designed PGA golf courses, kid’s camp, a full-service spa and fitness center and nearby hiking trails.  For more information, visit www.loewshotels.com/ventana or call 800-234-5117 for reservations.

Multi-million dollar remodel to feature new Mason’s restaurant and Mason Bar 

NASHVILLE (November 5, 2012) – Travelers and foodies alike will have a new location to visit in Nashville with the renovation of Loews Vanderbilt Hotel and launch of its new restaurant, Mason’s, and bar, Mason Bar.

The extensive renovation includes the new restaurant and bar, a complete redesign of the lobby, remodeled corridors, and new guest and public bathrooms. Construction begins November 26 and is scheduled to wrap up in May 2013. 

Using local music, fashion and food as design inspiration, hotel features and finishes will be a sleek, modern style with vintage inspiration featuring stone, metal and rich, dark woods.

Mason’s, aptly named for the popular Mason jars used in Southern canning, is slated to be a Southern brasserie-style restaurant combining traditional Southern dishes with classical French techniques to create a uniquely local dining experience. Mason Bar, a rustic, public house-style bar featuring a Mason jar chandelier and nine-screen media wall, will offer live music and an extensive selection of beers, wines and spirits, some served straight from a Mason jar.

“Loews Vanderbilt Hotel is Tennessee’s only AAA Four Diamond rated hotel that has maintained that rating for more than 27 consecutive years, and we intend to keep up that rating by matching this invigorating contemporary look with our impeccable service,” said Tom Negri, Managing Director of Loews Vanderbilt Hotel. “With all of the new development that is bringing more people into Nashville and into our hotels and restaurants, it’s exciting that we are able to make this investment so that we can stay ahead of what’s going on in the market.”

Throughout construction, the hotel’s meeting and conference space, ballroom, fitness center will remain open. Alternative restaurant and bar locations will be available on the Mezzanine level for guests’ dining and beverage needs. A special renovation rate starting at $129 is available Nov. 26, 2012 through May 8, 2013, and includes 50 percent off of parking, including valet, free in-room internet, one complimentary movie during a stay, and a 25 percent discount on room service for dinner.
