The Black Olive Bar & Grill, located at The National Conference Center, held its third block party, “Blocktoberfest” on Friday, September 21. Food & Beverage Director Todd Goldian and his team organized a series of block parties this summer to highlight The National’s partnerships with local businesses and to provide a fun night for the local community. The Oktoberfest- themed event included partnerships with 10 local breweries, restaurants, wineries, and farms, featuring:
