At the risk of being shamelessly self-promotional, we gotta say that we’ve been busy this summer!
In June our favorite photographer, Scott Thompson, spent two days capturing the fun available outdoors at Q Center. If you’ve ever been on a photo shoot with Scott, you know we had two fun-filled (emphasize FILLED) days! The end result was over 8,000 images of our wide variety of sports facilities and outdoor event venues. If you’re interested in some behind-the-scenes photos, take a look at our flickr photostream.
Early in July, we had a BBQ for our guests in the Courtyard. It was a great early summer day – blue skies, white fluffy clouds and a light breeze with the perfect temperature for a picnic. Diners were treated to fresh-grilled hamburgers and chicken breast, sweet corn and all the fixings. What a great way to kick off summer while taking a break from an intense day of meetings!
Also this summer, we began transforming our Q Tower lobby area into a more inviting and exciting area for guests to connect and relax. It started in June with the installation of outlets and cabling for two large-screen HD TVs. By mid-July we had groupings of comfortable furniture and new lighting in place. Finishing touches are still in-progress, but guests are already finding new and better ways to use this space at the hub of Q Center. We also opened Tower Bar in that area, where guests can meet for a cocktail, beer or wine and enjoy a sporting event or just chat. We posted a few photos of the changes on flickr, with more to come soon.
