Princeton Pre FAM Tour
Our staff had the opportunity to experience a number of amazing event spaces yesterday (3/31/10). We traveled to Princeton, NJ for a run-through of the venues that will participate on the Princeton FAM Tour. This tour will surely show planners all the variety that the area has to offer!
First things first, 3 of our staff members met up with Michael Young from Activities Event Specialists, Mike Levine and Keir Defonzo of Chauncy Conference Center at Chauncy. We toured the facility and admired the renovations as well as the serenity that the facility has to offer. Chauncy Conference Center is fully loaded with beautiful rooms, great food and friendly staff!
Next stop, Miele Showroom! Our arrival at Miele warranted some oohs and ahhs. The showroom is state of the art and lined with beautiful appliances but appliances are just the start of things. Miele is more than meets the eye. They have fully loaded – working kitchens. The way they utilize these kitchens is through cooking classes and teambuilding. Highly trained chefs help guests prepare food while building relationships and the best part about it – you get to eat the food you make!
After Miele our group traveled to Grounds For Sculpture/Rat’s Restaurant in Marlton, NJ. Grounds for Sculpture is indescribable in words; it is something you have to see for yourself. You can purchase boxed lunches to bring with you as you tour the grounds and enjoy the scenery. The grounds have hidden nooks just waiting to be found and breathtaking sculptures. If you visit Grounds for Sculpture you must not leave without a meal at Rat’s Restaurant! Rat’s is named for a hospitable rat character in the book “The Wind in the Willows”. Between food, drinks, and atmosphere, you will leave feeling that you have experienced the complete package. Outdoor seating is available with views that will make you feel like you have been transported to another time.
Our eyes were opened to new and fantastic spaces! One thing is for sure the Princeton FAM will surely be a hit!
