Hip to be Square

We’re celebrating all things square this week, just like our favorite photo sharing app (Hello Instagram!) We love this Instagram worthy set up of a square room, brightly colored backdrop, and oh, it just happens to be on its side, making it that much more photo worthy. Design your own space with items unique to your event.
3 Square Meals – In 1

Mom always said get your 3 square meals a day. We went with sandwiches, because they are naturally square, and this recipe combines a little meat, fruit, veggie and spice.
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the Miso Slaw:
3/4 pound green cabbage (about 1/2 head), cored and thinly sliced
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon white miso
For the Chutney:
3/4 pound firm but ripe plums, halved and pitted (about 5 small plums)
2 scallions, ends trimmed
1 jalapeño pepper
Vegetable or canola oil
2 teaspoons whole grain mustard
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons honey
Sugar, to taste
4 crusty sandwich rolls, split
For the Pork: Working 1 piece at a time, sandwich pork between layers of plastic wrap and pound with a meat pounder or heavy skillet until about 1/4 inch thick. Season generously with salt and pepper and set aside.
To build sandwiches, pile miso slaw on each bottom bun, then top each with 1 piece of grilled pork. Spoon some plum chutney on top, then top with remaining grilled pork. Spread plum chutney on top buns and close sandwiches. Serve.
Literally translating to Old Square, the Vieux Carre is a classic New Orleans style drink th’s anyhingbt square.

Since we’re talking all things square and Instagram is our number 1 square photo sharing platform, why not take those hashtag branded shots and share them with your event via a social wall. Social Walls are done with a website or app aggregator that searches for key hashtags and broadcasts them to a URL. This can then be displayed via a projector for all to see.
