A few days ago I did an event for the Renaissance Hotel in Seattle called “Global Day of Discovery“. If you’re wondering…. what the heck is that? It’s a global event that all Renaissance Hotels (all 160 of them) are doing on the same day “June 11th. Guests and locals are invited to enjoy drinks, food, art, music and more! It also marks the official launch of the Evenings at Renaissance.
“There is always an opportunity for the unexpected at Renaissance Hotels,” said Dan Vinh, Vice President, Marketing “The Next Gen traveler wants to make the most of business travel to discover local music, art and culinary experiences that they can share with others. With Global Day of Discovery, we celebrate what Renaissance does every day to help our guests discover the soul of the neighborhood and experience the people, sights, sounds, tastes and art of the local culture that make each city unique.”
The event was super chill, but I think the highlight of the night was when one of the guys that worked there busted out and said something about twerkin and Miley Cyrus then started poppin his booty! He totally caught me off guard and didn’t look like the type either to say something like that. Middle aged man in a suit (I think he was one of the managers) and then all of a sudden those two words come out his mouth “twerkin” “Miley Cyrus” hahahahaha. I totally wasn’t playing anything near twerk music or Miley Cyrus but that made my night! They also had what they called their signature bar ritual where a man with lots of muscles and a great tan walks in and makes the signature punch for the night aka spiked punch!
I also had a chance to meet the talented Brooke Westlund! Her art was amazing and she even made a painting live at the event of the Seattle skyline which was one of the prizes given away at the end of the night.
Overall the event went well and if I wasn’t Dj’ing I would totally go to this event. It was like a lounge you would find somewhere in Belltown, but at a Hotel!
