Bed, Bath and Beyond & Celebrity Chef, Fabio Viviani

Kristy Barto, Sales Manager at Interlaken, has some fun to share - take it away Kris!

Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of working with employees of one of my favorite stores to shop in, Bed, Bath and Beyond! We hosted the vendor showcase in our beautiful Garden Pavilion where products were featured from Dyson, Kitchen Aid, and Calphalon. The highlight of the vendor showcase was a demonstration presented by Chef Fabio Viviani using Bialetti Aeternum ceramic cookware. Not only was Chef Viviani engaging and humorous but this line of cookware which he endorses is incredible and it can only be found at Bed, Bath and Beyond! After the demonstration the group enjoyed our Backyard BBQ on the lawn and each received a sample of the Bialetti cookware.

After a morning of demonstrations, followed by lunch, the group divided up into teams and we facilitated Interlaken’s Radical Race as their team building activity. All 80 people set off across our 30 acres for two hours of tasks such as a blind wine tasting, a culinary activity, the Helium Stick activity and of course the “Human Knot”.

All in all it was another example of Interlaken’s versatility and ability to suit many different corporate needs.

Pet of the Week

pet friendly hotel Interlaken Inn CT Basil

Hi, my name is Basil, (Ch. Buonaire's Pesto.)  I met my new Mom and Dad in December.  They were happy to have me because they lost their beloved Airedale in August and I came to them because I heard they like to spoil their dogs. I love new things and I went with them to the Interlaken Inn in Lakeville, CT.  The Interlaken was so happy to meet me.  They welcomed me and my family with a sign in the lobby.  Then Winston came out from behind the desk to meet me and everyone was gathering around me making a fuss.  Hmm, I was a little overwhelmed, but every day everyone greeted me and I warmed up just fine. 

My Mom showed me the ropes by walking around the beautiful grounds at the Interlaken and we looked at all of the beautiful flowers and wonderful sculptures by Denis Curtiss.  She took lots of pictures.  We went for so many long walks on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail where I saw a big hairy thing called an alpaca and I heard peacocks (whatever they are) but I did not see them.  They took me for walks in Great Barrington and Salisbury and they kept coming out with bags and boxes.  The even bought some things for me.

My Mom tried to get me to do something new.  She put these funny shoes on and put a loooooong leash on me.  She went into this big body of water called a lake and convinced me to follow her.  I did not like it much so I "froze."  Mom said I did great and said next time I would be more willing to do more, like maybe go up to my elbows.  I got out and then we sat by the lake and watched a bunch of people from a school doing a team building exercise organized by the Interlaken Inn.  That was a lot of fun.  The humans did some funny things trying to make rafts that had to go into the lake and hold 2 people to row out to a canoe and then back.  This looks like a great thing for team building. Maybe if my mom and I made a raft I would have liked the lake more!

My parents said something about how nice it was to see Brenda during the breakfast in the newly decorated breakfast room.  Then every night they said how delicious the dinners were at Morgan's and how Eric and Brandon and Wes and everyone at Morgan's are wonderful. They loved these things called apple fritters and grilled asparagus and beets and Morgan burgers and strip steak and the chicken and the special little rolls..boy they made me hungry when they would come back from their meals and talk about their breakfast or dinner.  They even made something special for my Mom and made her Birthday special.

This going on vacation with my parents was fun.  And with all of the places to go to nearby and people to meet at the Inn it kept us busy.  No naps during the day made me very tired and we had a very nice pet friendly room in Sunnyside.  The Interlaken gave us really nice comfy beds and let me tell you...I slept like a puppy.  I had my toys to play with and there was a fridge in the room and kept my food cold.

I can't wait for them to take me away to Interlaken again.  I rate it 4 PAWS UP!

Signed,

Basil
