An Italian Bistro at Meijer Gardens

By Katie Racey, Membership Events Coordinator

The Connection: Italian Bistro was held on Wednesday, June 22. The event was originally supposed to be held outside on the DeVos Van Andel Horse Piazza, but Mother Nature had other plans so food and drinks were inside and guests had the option to tour the outdoor sculpture park.

The Italian inspired menu featured antipasto and Caesar salad, mini Italian sandwiches, bruschetta and cannolis which were a perfect complement to the wine selection available at the bar. Italian music helped everyone get into the spirit as they socialized and networked with one another.

One of the benefits of being a member of The Connection is the ability to have behind the scenes access to Meijer Gardens. Guests of the event were able to walk around and enjoy the Sculpture Park while paying special attention to the sculptures in our collection that were created by Italian artists. This event was another excellent way to experience one of the many facets of Meijer Gardens!
