Cabaret in Seattle

Teatro ZinZanni’s residency will run from October until March 2024. Guests get to experience improv, dance, music and so much more, paired with a multicourse meal. Group deals are also available, along with the option to choose from private events and pre-show rental space.

On the 40-yard Line in Tennessee

Ever wanted to sit on the 40-yard line of a football game? The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, can make that happen. The Hermitage Hotel’s exclusive luxury box on the 40-yard line gives guests a grand experience of any football or concert event.

If you’d rather send your group out to explore all that Music City has to offer, groups can pick six attractions and then get six exclusive deals to hit the ground running. This can include Adventure Science Center, Belle Meade Historic Site & Winery, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, or an escape room. Planners can craft a one-of-a-kind experience for their guests to leave with.

Since you’re in Nashville, it’s almost no surprise that The Hermitage also offers the chance for guests to get behind the mic and laydown some tracks. Guests can choose between a two-hour one-on-one songwriting lesson or two-hour in-studio lesson. No better way to feel like a rockstar in Music City.

The Curtis has 13 hyper-themed guest rooms ranging from video games to Star Trek and Barbie. The hotel also features a 42-foot-high sculpture by artists Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt that consists of a stack of steel three-dimensional building blocks of various colors that spell out “All Together Now,” inspired by The Beatles song of same name.
