What we’ve done here isn’t just impressive, it’s historic. No hotel on the Virginia Beach oceanfront, and precious few hotels anywhere, have attained the iconic status of The Cavalier. Since 1927, this grand historic treasure on the Atlantic Ocean has played gracious host to presidents, world famous entertainers and other dignitaries. The original Cavalier on the Hill and the Oceanfront Cavalier have undergone some classic changes of their own, with beautiful renovations to guest rooms and meeting spaces. An event at this historic destination can make history as well, for your organization. ( 8 8 8 ) S I N C E 2 7 | V I R G I N I A B E A C H | W W W. C AVA L I E R H O T E L .

Travel is more than Just A to B Travel is “BIG” in Texas The new IRS employee manual includes provisions for collecting taxes in the aftermath of a nuclear war. Boy, that’s government efficiency. I wonder if the Census Bureau has a similar manual provision! Alaska, the largest state in the union, also has the fewest counties. Could be why we have no SGMP chapter in Alaska? Liquids can be measured not only in pints, quarts and gallons, but also in barrels. So, the next time you’re ordering for a cocktail reception, think BIG; there are 31.5 gallons to a barrel! The Hilton Austin Airport’s First Class Amenities and over 60,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor flexible meeting space will guarantee your meeting is a “BIG” sucess.
