Due to the nature of our business, we find ourselves involved in a number of spectacular events each year. As 2016 winds down, we’ve taken a step back to look at all the amazing special events we were privileged to be a part of and wanted to share a few of our favorites.

Here are our top 10 events on 2016:

  1.  Modern Luxury Magazine Promotional Event at Artifact Events

    Working alongside an incredible vendor team, we put together an amazing promotional event for Modern Luxury Magazine at one of our favorite event spaces – Artifact Events. Here are some of the food items we served that are making us hungry just thinking about them:

Catering the NFL Draft in Chicago

Catering the NFL Draft in Chicago

Chicago has recently become more and more sought after as a destination for prestigious events that the whole nation watches eagerly. Most recently, Chicago played host to the James Beard Awards. For those who aren’t familiar, it’s basically the Oscars for restaurateurs. Just days before that, Chicago played host to the NFL Draft. Needless to say, it’s been a busy month in the second city!

2016 was actually the second time that both the James Beard Awards and the NFL Draft were in Chicago. We’re hoping to see both events in Chicago for the foreseeable future, and it’s looking like it may happen (with a definite yes for the James Beard Awards)!

On a more personal note with regards to these exciting happenings, Catering by Michaels was honored to be chosen as the exclusive caterer for this year’s NFL Draft Town VIP areas. Obviously, we were excited to have the event in Chicago again and even more excited to be able to take part in it!
