We are counting down the days until Sundance 2017! It’s a little over one month away and the excitement is already building. And I am ecstatic to return to the slopes of Park City at the official on-camera host and blogger for the Kia Supper Suite! There are so many amazing dinners and parties happening at the suite this year. And here is what is going down.
Embracing the success of being a top food and fete film festival destination for celebrities and filmmakers each year, event producer A-List Communications announces it has renewed a third year title sponsorship with Kia Motors and will bring the celebrity favored “Kia Supper Suite” back to Park City. The exclusive three-day pop-up will be open from January 21st to 23rd, 2017 for the first weekend of the famed Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
For year three, Kia Supper Suite will take over the brand-new Park City restaurant, “Firewood on Main”, which opens its doors mid-December 2016. The restaurant located at 306 Main Street brings impeccable modern design with an expansive open kitchen, custom 14 foot wood-burning grill and private tasting room within subtle touches of rustic mountain resort décor. Owned and led by award-winning Chef John Murcko, the restaurant marks the long- awaited return of Chef Murcko to Park City, who has opened over 15 top restaurants and has lead the kitchens of some of Park City’s most famous restaurants. In the Kia Supper Suite tradition of spotlighting an award winning culinary partner, Chef Murcko will serve up private three-course dinners and gourmet canapé cocktail parties in celebration of the films and casts in attendance.
Helping to elevate the culinary experience with fine craft cocktails and vintage wines will be Maestro Dobel® Tequila and Johndrow Vinyards, both also renewing their sponsorships for the third consecutive year. Maestro Dobel® Diamante Tequila is the first ever multi-aged clear tequila of Anejo, Extra Anejo and Reposado blended and distilled from 100% blue agave from a single estate in Jalisco, Mexico. Featured cocktail pairings at the Kia Supper Suite will include Dobel’s Diamante signature Black Diamond Margarita with Himalayan salt.
Wine pairings for the dinners will include Johndrow Vineyards 2013 Clarity Sauvignon Blanc and 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Kia Supper Suite VIP experience also extends beyond the kitchen as guests will be whisked to and from the events in a fleet of chauffeur-driven Kia utility vehicles, including the award- winning Sorento and the all-new 2017. The Niro is a no-compromise package which maintains the style and appeal of a utility vehicle while offering outstanding fuel economy through an all-new, state-of-the-art hybrid powertrain, and an important next step on the fast-growing automaker’s path to nearly tripling its global green car line-up by 2020. “The Kia brand and our products have undergone a tremendous transformation and are now world-class by every measure, and the Kia Supper Suite provides a unique environment in which to tell our story,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, Kia Motors America. “For our third year in Park City, we’re looking forward to sharing the all-new Niro crossover, as well as insights into Kia’s green initiatives around the world, with a like-minded film community who shares our concern for the environment and embraces the latest green technology,” tells Kimberley Gardiner, director of marketing communications, Kia Motors America.
