Offsite Events & Dining
Food is one of the best ways to experience a new place like a local, and we know the best restaurants in the state! Our close relationships with local eateries allows us to custom-create authentic dining experiences, whether you’re looking for an elaborate meal or a good old fashioned country fried steak. Because our offices are located in the four major cities in Texas, the Goen South DMC team has strong, long-standing relationships with local restaurants and chefs across the state. We can plan an offsite dining experience that features exactly what you are looking for, whether that is an unforgettable meal at the Dallas Cowboys stadium or an intimate dinner at a local farm-to-table restaurant. Texas has a wide array of delicious specialties, and we love showing our guests traditional Texas favorites, top-notch Mexican cuisine, and up-and-coming culinary gems. We have options for carnivores (you can’t come to Texas and not try our famous barbecue!), and delicious offerings for those who are vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. If your group is filled with foodies or people who just love a good meal, you can trust Goen South DMC to plan a dine-around or offsite event that is perfect for you.
Watch the Goen South Dallas DMC team set up a spectacular surprise event at the AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys! Guests arrived in busses with a police escort, ready to see the surprise location of their awards ceremony. When everyone entered the stadium at the 50 yard line, just like the players do on game day, our team knew we’d pulled off the surprise! While the focus of the event was the awards ceremony, we were sure to create a fun atmosphere and add as many unique touches as possible, including football games that had guests running across the field and into the end zone. Check out the stadium’s transformation for this unforgettable awards ceremony!
“Without Limits” Capital Campaign
What better way to kick off a fundraising campaign than with a night under the Texas stars? Goen South planned a truly Texan evening for the Texas A&M University-Kingsville Foundation. The event’s motto was WITHOUT LIMITS, and it was a night full of lively music, entertainment, and engaging speeches. A good time was had by all, from students to faculty to donors and more. The campaign kickoff was a Texas-sized success!
Take a ride on the San Antonio River! Goen South San Antonio DMC planned a fun evening at Biga on the Banks, an iconic fine dining restaurant on the San Antonio Riverwalk. We created a saloon atmosphere with Texas-themed rustic decor (including a larger-than-life Texas flag!), a photo booth with props, casino games, and more. Guests enjoyed a late-night boat cruise along the river and were able to experience the best views that San Antonio has to offer.
A Real Texas Ranch
There’s nothing more Texan than a ranch party! The Goen South Austin DMC team brought the ranch to our guests with a night filled with fun, music, and camaraderie. Live music and rustic decor set the scene, and there was no shortage of entertainment throughout the night. Guests donned cowboy hats and tried their hand at bull riding, armadillo racing, skeet shooting, and more. There was even a photo op with real longhorns! As the ranch party festivities came to an end, a spectacular fireworks show sent guests home in style.
