If you’re like most Atlantans, you have a special relationship with the Fox Theatre. Maybe you saw your first Broadway show here, or perhaps you attended your high school prom or a wedding or company event in one of our magnificent ballrooms.
Like so many of us, you are a Fox fan.
If you also love parties and food, then you’re going to enjoy following this new blog titled “AFFAIRS at the FOX“. Twice a month on Fridays, your favorite Fox blogger Travis S. Taylor and a host of guest bloggers will bring you exclusive, behind-the-scenes lowdown on the Who, What, When, Where and Why of some of the country’s most dazzling special events.
For instance, did you know that when The Jersey Boys appeared on the Fox Theatre stage, Affairs to Remember’s culinary staff created a four-course dream meal that any Italian grandmother would be proud to serve on Sunday? And each course represented one of the “four seasons”, of course! Doing this was part of the relatively new Fox Food Story.
TRIVIA & GIVEAWAY!
Let’s have some trivia fun! Some of you know that there’s a “Wall of Fame” in the Fox Theatre offices. The hundreds of celebrity headshots in this hallway—many of them autographed—are some of the many entertainers who have performed on the Fox stage. There is only one celebrity who has the distinction of having TWO photos on this wall. Who is that celebrity?
If you’re the first person to answer correctly in the comments field below, you will win a dozen of our signature Simply Chocolate Squares! Employees or affiliates of Affairs to Remember and the Fox Theatre are not eligible and the squares are for pick-up only, but believe me…they’re worth every square inch!
Okay, back to the blog.
Beginning in just one week, you’ll be taken behind the scenes for an “Around-the-World” tour of the Fox. In the minutes it takes to read even a few posts on this blog, you’ll discover things such as backstage secrets, magical passageways…and even a visit from Willy Wonka who’ll talk to you about special chocolates!
In the weeks and months to come, you’ll discover little-known facts about the Fox and how it has become home to Atlanta’s memory-making proms, anniversaries, wedding receptions, fundraisers, corporate celebrations and other award-winning special events!
And now for some navigational tips: Each week’s theme will be found in the central portion of the blog – that’s where you’re reading right at this moment. On the right side, you’ll see three smaller areas – these speak to the three elements of Fox Food Story. You’ll be hearing a lot about the Fox Food Story in the coming months.
Watch the sidebars to the right for interesting facts and vignettes on the subjects that we hold near and dear to our hearts at the Fox – its majestic architecture (today’s sidebar is about those wonderful Egyptian Ballroom columns that we love); its location in the heart of the New South (“May I Offer You…” gives you a glimpse inside a specially-created Fox vocabulary); and the Fox’s spectacular Broadway-style shows (today you’ll read about some fantastic ways to entertain clients and guests during the run of those shows).
You’ll learn about things in this new blog that you’ll catch nowhere else – unless you’re on the *inside*…and that’s exactly where you’ll be when you subscribe to our AFFAIRS at the FOX Blog.
We look forward to whetting – and satisfying – your appetite for all things Fox, food and special events!
