If you haven’t visited Stryxe in Madison yet, it may be time. This facility opened in February 2016 and features a one-stop shop for venue rental space, team-buildings, get-togethers and more. Groups as small as 10 and as large as 500 are equally at home in this space where 12,000 square feet of gathering space includes three private rooms. And for fun? Well, Stryxe has 20 state-of-the-art bowling lanes, plus 31 amusement and parlor games. Gourmet gastropub-style eating is part of the experience. Two bars have more than 25 beers on tap, but it’s the scratch kitchen with delicious upscale comfort food, including Tabisca-style pizzas from the wood-fired pizza oven, that really seals the deal. Check them out!

Awards do not come easily in the restaurant business. Michelin, AAA and Forbes tell us who the best is (and Wine Spectator when it comes to vino), and there are only a select few of local establishments that make the esteemed cut. The Bernards Inn is in rare company, as it is the only restaurant in New Jersey that has made the Forbes list of the top restaurants in the United States. AAA counts just 11 restaurants in its Four-Diamond rating in our state. While you may hear that trophies are handed out just for showing up, it’s clearly not the case when it comes to dining.

 

What generation will make up 75 percent of the workforce in 2025? If you guessed millennials, you’d be right! According to an article titled "How Millennials Could Upend Wall Street and Corporate America" by Morley Winograd and Dr. Michael Hais, by 2020, millennials will comprise more than one of three adult Americans, and by 2025 they will make up as much as 75 percent of the workforce. What does that mean for corporate planners? They will have to evolve the way they plan corporate events from boomers and Gen X’ers to millennials or face having an event that will become a social disaster!
