The Epic Show: A Glimpse into the Talent, Enthusiasm and Culture at Epicurean Hotel

So, you think you know the team at Epicurean Hotel, but you have no idea! There’s nothing better than their team of Epicureans and the culture behind everything they do that is exactly like nothing else. Here’s an insiders peek at their most recent internal quarterly meeting…

First, you’ll meet show host and General Manger, Tom Haines as he introduces you to the very first “The Epic Show.”

Jim Lott, Field Manager, AAA Auto South, presented Epicurean Hotel with the prestigious 2016 AAA Four Diamond Award; a stellar accomplishment that only 6% of hotels receive.

You’ll also meet the two fearless and fabulous Epicurean Leader of the Year and Epicurean of the Year in 2015; Rossi Arnaoudova and Bruce Moore.

David Laxer, Owner of Bern’s Steak House announces Bern’s 60th year of business coinciding with the story behind the jaw-dropping mural wall from CASS Contemporary owners Cassie and Jake Greatens. And let’s not forget the magician behind the mural; world-famous muralist Tristan Eaton.

The local Tampa Bay community is an important pillar to the Epicurean Hotel. During The Epic Show, you’ll discover more about Epicurean’s community partner, Feeding Tampa Bay and meet their Executive Director, Thomas Mantz.

Guess what? We’ve also got a peek inside last year’s Epic Chef Showdown, which will return due to popular demand this year in July, with the final competition hosted by Retro Rad Chef Emily Ellyn on August 29th.

And who could forget the live entertainment from Joe Collier & The Sound Bites (led by the President of Mainsail Lodging & Development himself!) as they play what we expect to be a humongous hit and their latest release, “The Edge of My Life.”

These are just some of the visionaries and talent behind the culture inside the Epicurean Hotel, which strives to continue to Awaken Appetites Unknown for all our team members and guests alike.
