The purpose of the event is to bring together Food and Beverage Industry Members to raise awareness and membership for the Omaha Restaurant Association as well as to build camaraderie within the Omaha Food and Beverage Industry. A member of the ORA is the host for the Membership Drive and puts out a great spread while members and potential members network. This event offers one of the best opportunities for ORA members to get to know each other in a casual setting. There is also a group Mixology contest where attendees form teams to develop their own signature cocktail. Some lucky attendees walk away with some great door prizes donated by generous members of the ORA.
Annual Membership Drive Night Out
DJs Dugout fit the theme of our Annual Membership Drive/Industry Night Out perfectly!! Just in time for March Madness, our theme was basketball. The food was arena style with a flare; a hot dog station, a popcorn station and a nacho station with all the fixins. The mixology contest was a major competition with “brackets”. Game players continued to advance by winning contests. The contests were games of trivia, as well as activities, like “shooting” the most olives in a glass or making the most baskets through an inflatable headband with a basketball ring on it. When teams won their bracket they could choose a crucial item from the pantry or steal one from their competitors.
The Industry Night Out is fun way to network with peers without even realizing you are making a contact or even a friend! We are excited to have our event at DJs again in 2019! We hope to see you there!
