The best thing about meeting breaks, as many chair-bound attendees will attest, is what’s on the refreshment table. In San Francisco, the InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel has gotten off the sugar track with a fiber-rich Popcalm Break menu for meetings. The spread features popcorn with a variety of shake-it-on herb and spice blends (ginger/coconut/ wasabi, for one) to help guests unwind, de-stress and boost their immune systems while noshing. A selection of vitamin waters accompanies the snack food.
My dog Carlos and I celebrated the recent holiday weekend by taking a road trip to a trio of Kimpton properties in Southern California. I’m always happy when an invitation to check out a new property includes a “dog welcome” plus one. And I’m sure many dog owners attending corporate meetings are, too.
