Did you know July was National Berry Month? Yeah, me neither, but it sounds like a great idea. And one celebration has SoCal's Driscoll’s berries teamed up with the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego. Their gimmick? To provide the resort with an official 'Berry Butler', on hand every Friday and Saturday, July 3 – August 1, the berry butler will be greeting guests with fresh berries, helping kids whip up fresh smoothies, and staging tastings with the resort’s Executive Chef Marc Ehrler (who is also a French Master Chef).
The Loews' Mixology Team will also conduct cocktail courses for adults. And for the kidlets? Mocktail courses, of course. And it's all made with—you guessed it—Driscoll’s antioxidant-packed berries. Tastings and berry treats for guests of the resort will be free. (Note: Any guest - overnight or just in for cocktails and a bite, can take part in the berry mixology!)
Details: Driscoll's is a 100-year-old, family-owned company and is the leading provider of fresh and organic berries; most of their berries are grown in California; to find your local source, go to www.driscolls.com/. The Loews Coronado Bay Resort is situated on a private 15-acre peninsula edged by the Pacific Ocean and Coronado Bay and is minutes from downtown Coronado. The charming resort village is a short drive to San Diego’s world-famous attractions and is the perfect summer weekend getaway. Rates for the resort for the month of July start at $319 per night for a Superior King room. Click on www.loewshotels.com/en/Hotels/San-Diego-Resort/Overview.aspx.
