Admit it. There has been more than one occasion when someone asked you where you’d like to go for dinner and you named a destination thousands of miles away.
I have. Many times.
Paris is always at the top of my list, but I’d also love to dine at Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, or dine alfresco with a backdrop of the Pyramids of Giza, or return to Iguazu Falls in Argentina for a sunset dinner overlooking the world’s third largest waterfalls. I could go on and on.
An experience at the Fox Theatre is much like my dining bucket list. It’s a trip around the world!
The shows on the Fox stage have taken visitors to places as far away as Thailand (The King & I), Africa (The Lion King) and Paris (Phantom of the Opera). This year’s Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival is taking movie-goers to an islet off the coast of Central America’s Pacific Coast, near Costa Rica (Jurassic Park); a small town in Europe (Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory); and Chicago (Some Like it Hot), just to name a few!
The architecture of the Fox Theatre is a glimpse into the splendor of the Arab World, specifically Egypt and Morocco. The ceiling in the main auditorium was inspired by an Arabian evening sky. You will find the Egyptian Ballroom to be highly stylized after Egypt—it was only seven years before the Fox opened that King Tut‘s tomb was discovered! And the Grand Salon features beautiful Moroccan tiles and patterns, as does the more intimate Landmarks Lounge.
And then there’s the food!
Affairs to Remember’s Executive Chef Ahmad Nourzad grew up in Tehran learning from his mother how to cook. Since, he has cooked in Vienna, Austria, and Austin, Texas. He matriculated at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in New York City and earned his Southern “chops” here in Atlanta! When you’re enjoying an Affairs to Remember Caterers catered event, you’re enjoying culinary expertise from many parts of the world.
Affairs to Remember has partnered with experts in other culinary genres—if you want sushi, we know the best; if you want Indian, we know the best; if you want BBQ, well, we do that quite well, but we know some of the other bests in Atlanta, too!
We have great experience in designing and executing “around the world” menus for clients and their guests. Where do you want to take your taste buds? Let’s talk!
Fox Theatre tours also can be a trip around the world. Through the Moroccan and Egyptian architecture, to discussions of the international stars that have and are and will perform onstage at the Fox, to the exquisite Southern Hospitality you’ll experience from Fox Theatre and Affairs to Remember staff, any given experience, any given evening at the Fox Theatre can very well be a trip around the world!
