Evensong Spa Beer Services

Evensong Spa is once again offering craft beer spa specials in conjunction with Heidel House Resort’s 6th annual Brew Fest. Enjoy the rejuvenating benefits of Wisconsin’s most popular beverage throughout the month of March.

The U.S. has very few spas that offer the benefits of beer services, whose origins stem from the ancient Romans. Beer baths were used to sweat out toxins, exfoliate the skin and infuse vitamins into the body.

The Evensong Spa team has taken it upon itself to diligently research this under-served industry and craft its own beer spa services! Throughout the month of March, these Evensong Spa beer services will be featured:

Renew & Brew Bath Cure – $50: Start with a frothy beer bath, a potent brew of dark ale and mineral water to purify the skin. The beer bubbles perform a subtle massage, tingling as it touches your skin, and then warms and opens up skin pores allowing toxins to escape. The hops function as a purifying agent, exfoliating dry, dull skin. The active beer yeast provides the skin with a wide range of B vitamins, proteins and saccharides while contributing to overall softening and regeneration of the skin. To add to the relaxation experience, enjoy a pint of your favorite New Glarus brew while you soak your stress away!

Evensong Spa’s steam room or waterfall whirlpool soak is the perfect follow-up to this 20-minute treatment.

Hops & Honey Pedicure – $75: Enjoy a warm foot soak with a touch of beer while enjoying a cold one! The natural antibacterial effects clean and sanitize, while yeast enzymes in the beer soften and exfoliate dry skin and callouses, making skin feel absolutely renewed. Guests can sit back and sip a New Glarus beer while their feet and calves are massaged with a lime salt scrub, followed by a super hydrating citrus lotion. Finish with the spa’s divine honey-based moisture serum that seals in moisture and brings rich color back to tired feet.

For both beer-themed spa treatments, guests can choose from New Glarus Spotted Cow, Blacktop, Moon Man and Fat Squirrel.

Guests must be 21 or older to take advantage of these Heidel House Resort & Spa events and services.

Skirvin Hilton Hotel Oklahoma logo

The Skirvin Hilton, the #1 hotel in Oklahoma City, Okla., today announced it is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its reopening. In 2007, Marcus Hotels & Resorts and Skirvin Partners in Development completed a $55 million renovation and restoration of this historic landmark, returning the property to its former glory as the social center of Oklahoma City. Now, 10 years later, the Skirvin Hilton is currently ranked among the top five Hiltons in the Americas.

“We are delighted to celebrate the landmark 10th anniversary of the oldest existing hotel in the state of Oklahoma,” said Gerald Rappaport, general manager. “To celebrate this significant milestone with our guests, we will be offering fantastic anniversary specials throughout the month of February. We are honored to continue to be considered the city’s crown jewel and social epicenter and look forward to carrying on the Skirvin Hilton’s tradition as the premier hotel enjoyed by both residents and guests.”

The Skirvin Hilton’s anniversary celebration will include festivities including:

• Throughout the month of February, guests who stay two nights at the regular price can stay an additional night for only $10 by booking here.
• Park Avenue Grill will be serving $10 lunch specials, Monday through Friday – designed with the Skirvin’s storied past in mind. A percentage of proceeds from the lunch special will be donated directly to The CARE Center, a nonprofit organization that provides support to children and families.
• The Red Piano Lounge will offer a $10 signature martini throughout the month. Starting February 24, for an additional $10, guests can take home a Red Piano logo martini glass – with all profits going directly to The CARE Center.
• The celebration will culminate on Friday, February 24 from 12:00pm-6:00pm as the hotel invites all friends and neighbors for complimentary anniversary cake, punch and coffee inside the Skirvin Hilton hotel’s newly renovated lobby. Guests can enjoy a historical tour, walk the event space, or view newly renovated guest rooms as part of the most recent $4 million renovation.

The Skirvin Hilton has been the backdrop for many significant events, including weddings, galas and celebrations. The Skirvin Hilton is asking guests with a beloved Skirvin story or memory to share their stories. Ten favorite moments will then be chosen and published on the Skirvin Hilton’s website. The guests with the 10 selected stories will also be given a weekend stay to come back and enjoy the hotel in its prime. Guests can email their stories to SusanRiley@SkirvinHilton.com.

Second Artist in Residence Selected for The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel in Lincoln, Neb.

Lincoln, Neb., February 2, 2017. . . . . The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel, majority owned and managed by Marcus Hotels & Resorts, today announced Nicole Battelle Van Hook as its second Artist in Residence. Battelle Van Hook will move into the studio and gallery space on the main level of the hotel on April 1st.

Battelle Van Hook was one of five finalists for the program. A lifelong Nebraskan, she is a full-scale paper scultpture artist, ultizing specialty papers and Swarovski crystals. Actively involved in the Lincoln community, she has created costumes for Lincoln Pinewood Bowl, previously managed Paper Panache and fashioned tablescapes for Table Inspirations at the Lied Center for Performing Arts.

Paper Artist Nicole Battelle Van Hook creates full scale paper sculptures and wearable paper couture. She is inspired by the ballet and her imagination. Battelle, states “Paper dances for me, I have to see it come to life.”

Her passion for paper sculpture and wearable paper couture has led to a permanent piece at National Museum of Dance in New York and intensive collaborations with California-based Ballet Zaida.

The hotel will host Battelle Van Hook on the property in a gallery space open to the public for the Cornhusker Artist-in-Residence program. During her year of residency, Battelle Van Hook will spend 30 hours weekly in an on-site studio, creating pieces, organzing weekly gallery classes, hosting First Friday Artwalks and networking with guests to create a truly enriching experience for all.

A legacy piece will be created during her year of residency to permanently be on display within the hotel. Her piece will be displayed next to the piece created by the first Artist In Residence, Margaret Berry.

The Artist-in-Residence program was created by Marcus Hotels & Resorts in 2009 at The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, Wis. The program encourages the public and guests to interact with a local artist, enriching the overall guest experience during their visit as they are able to connect with the artist and see the evolution of the pieces created. The excellent guest response to the program at The Pfister led to expanding the program to other company-owned properties, including the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City, Okla.

Mason Street Grill Celebrates Ten Years as Milwaukee’s Quintessential Neighborhood Hot Spot

Restaurant celebrates 10 years with exciting enhancements and new menu

MILWAUKEE – January 17, 2017Mason Street Grill, Milwaukee’s top restaurant for power lunches, wood-fired steaks, fresh seafood, private dining, after-work cocktails and live entertainment, is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017. As part of its celebration activities, the restaurant will undergo exciting enhancements and renovations to be unveiled to the public in early February.

“It has been an honor to serve our many notable, loyal guests and city visitors since opening 10 years ago and we thank everyone in the community who has supported Mason Street Grill. As we celebrate our anniversary next month, we are excited to unveil a refreshed look for the restaurant, as well as an updated menu developed by Executive Chef Ramses Alvarez. Our Mason Street Grill family is truly grateful for the past 10 years and we look forward to continuing to serve and be part of the fabric of the downtown neighborhood in the years to come,” said General Manager Serkan Yorulmaz.

One of the most prominent changes guests will notice is at the kitchen counter. The current space will be divided in half to create two separate chef’s counters, both offering a special menu exclusively for those seated in this area. The special menu will feature seasonal ingredients and provide a unique interactive dining experience as guests are able to observe and interact with the staff in the lively kitchen.
With this renovation, an increased emphasis has been placed on the artwork. Linda Marcus, local designer and artist, will curate a collection of local and international art to be displayed throughout the restaurant.

The restaurant will refresh its traditional look with new wood floors, updated seating restored with a dark brown leather, and an upgraded wine room display, that has a new design and look.

In addition to refreshing the overall décor, guests can look forward to expanded beverage offerings including new wine selections showcasing regional wine varieties and selective whiskey and bourbon options.

Mason Street Grill will be temporarily closed beginning Sunday, January 22 and will re-open on Thursday, February 9. For ongoing renovation updates and a sneak peek into hidden secrets and interesting facts about Mason Street Grill and its staff, please visit the restaurant’s Facebook page.

Additional information and updates will be announced in the coming weeks.
