May 2017 27 Along with a variety of on-site dining options from casual to upscale, Tan-Tar-A offers a wide variety of catered menus. Menus range from break- fast buffets with enhancements like European coffee bars and granola bars to hot hors d'oeuvres priced in 50-piece increments. Elaborate display stations pro- vide a visual feast with international cheese and antipasto options. Although the menus cover most tastes and preferences, the dedicated culinary team specializes in crafting creative customized menus to satisfy all palates. Alcohol is allowed. Tan-Tar-A has continued to grow and improve over the years; recent renovations have included new guest rooms in Building A, upgrades in the remaining guest rooms, new wall coverings and carpet in most of the meeting rooms and public space areas, and upgrades to the Oaks golf course. In addition, the resort continually upgrades the high- speed internet access to accommodate overnight and meeting guests' needs.

Although the resort's large spaces are great for big gatherings, it's the resort's small meeting spaces that shine for more intimate events.

In addition to the traditional meeting space, Tan-Tar-A has many suites for meetings in a more casual set- ting.
