Designer Spotlight: Elite Events & Floral Renaissance

Nov 21 2011 Published by admin under Designer Spotlight, Uniquely Marquee

Marquee is thrilled to welcome Elite Events and Floral Renaissance as our Designer Spotlight. Floral and event designer Michael Akila and Event Specialist Kathie Millen transformed our Inspiration Area into a vibrant reflection of holiday flair. Featuring our fruitwood stained custom vineyard tables with a coordinating chivari chair and accenting with deep rich colors of eggplant, gold and bronze, the table scape is absolutely jaw dropping. We asked for over the top and this team delivered. The gold velvet high back banquettes and the gold saturn chargers are beautiful accents to the rustic elegance theme that this amazing team team created. It is worth a trip to our showroom to see for yourself and get inspired.

Kathie Millen and Michael Akila are a creative team that does not disappoint. Thank you for putting our Marquee team into the holiday spirit!

Texas Monthly BBQ Festival

Nov 03 2011 Published by admin under Events

The Long Center will never be the same.
The 2011 Texas Monthly BBQ Festival summoned over 20 Pit Bosses from across Texas and they forever infused the wonderful smell of BBQ into the hallowed pillars of our performing arts center.

BBQ fans from as far away as Ithaca, New York cast their votes for Best Brisket, Best Sausage, Best Beef Ribs and Best Pork Ribs. The results will be in a future edition of Texas Monthly Magazine.

BBQ fan Syed Rehman said “So I flew into Dallas from Ithaca and then drove down for the fest. My vegetarian sister-in-law got me the BBQ t shirt because she knows how much I love BBQ. I will be back in 2013!”
