The Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau’s film crew recently spent an afternoon at The Whitney. The crew, led by Veronica Vance from Cavalier Films, toured the mansion, strolled through the gardens and sampled a variety of items from our award-winning menu. It was a pleasure to have them. You can view the video on The Whitney's website homepage at www.thewhitney.com. We hope it will inspire you to come down and visit us soon!

The Whitney played an integral role in two recent surprise celebrations. The first event was a 50th Birthday celebration and included over 100 guests at tables spread throughout The Whitney's renovated second floor. When the guest of honor arrived, escorted by her husband and The Whitney's maitre'd, she rounded the grand staircase by the Tiffany glass windows and was shocked to be greeted by a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday" by her family and friends. Overcome with emotion, she immediately sat down on the steps, buried her head in her hands and cried tears of joy!
The other birthday surprise event took place in The Whitney Gardens for a sunny Sunday brunch. The guest of honor was stunned when she turned the corner and was greeted by 120 friends!
Both events were fabulously well received by the honorees and their entire guest list. The excitement and enthusiasm they brought to The Whitney provided an uplifting experience for all who participated (including the staff!) to make both events a huge success.
