Next Week is The Bee’s Knees!

Thirsty Thursday is the Bee’s Knees, so we have an announcement! Next week The Genuine Hospitality Group is joining Caledonia Spirits in their annual Bee’s Knees Week promotion encouraging creative cocktails in support of bee education. Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, Amara at Paraiso, and Tigertail + Mary will each feature their own spin on a Bee’s Knees cocktail – traditionally made with gin, lemon, and honey. They will also feature a special dish to be paired with the cocktail, where honey’s the star – of course. Check it out next week only, September 23rd to 29th!  No wonder the expression came to mean “the height of excellence”, popular in the U.S. in the 1920s, along with “the cat’s whiskers”… or meow!

So why now?  Established in 2017, Bee’s Knees Week has collectively donated over $31,000 nationally to non-profit bee and pollinator organizations. The Bee Cause Project is an organization “working to help inspire the next generation of beekeepers and environmental stewards by installing beehives in local schools and organizations.”

You might be saying, what’s all this buzz about bee’s? Why are bees so important? Well, as a big player in pollination, the bee affects the entire balance of our ecosystem. Recently, bee populations have declined rapidly due to threats such as pesticides, mites, and colony collapse disorder. According to Bee Informed, 45.2% of honeybee colonies were lost last year. TGHG is doing our part to help! During Bee’s Knees week, $1 of each cocktail ($12 across all restaurants) benefits The Bee Cause Project. Keep reading to learn more about the special cocktails and dishes buzzing next week, and follow the fun nationwide on social media at #beeskneesweek.

A Habitat to Inhabit: Tigertail + Mary’s Bohemian Oasis with in the Oasis of Coconut Grove

Good design has to function and be effective especially in hospitality and a busy restaurant. What Meyer Davis Studio does so well is make that feel effortless, so the guest experience is about the special details and sense of place they conjure. At Tigertail + Mary the feeling is texture, modern geometric forms and how some natural touches in art and materials can create an easy, confident style that embraces the neighborhood’s jungle-like surroundings. Come inside and take a look around through the lens of Gather + Grow, and hear from our lead designer about the collaboration with Chef Schwartz to make this feeling come alive from our main dining room and bar, to our patio looking out to the neighborhood. Opening soon!
