Four Seasons Hotels Kick Off Surprise ‘Undercover’ Pop-Up Series

Four Seasons Hotels Kick Off Surprise ‘Undercover’ Pop-Up Series

Four Seasons properties around the country are participating in the top-secret series

Guests at Four Seasons Denver's Undercover dinner were treated to a portion of their meal while blindfolded.

The luxurious Four Seasons Hotels are widely regarded as among the finest in the field, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not up for a bit of occasional whimsy. Case in point: Four Seasons Undercover, in which participating locations will offer a unique high-end experience focusing on fine dining and entertainment, each one tailoring the program to its region and property. When guests buy tickets, they’re only told the date, time, and meeting place, and the rest is a surprise. Guests won’t know exactly what they signed up for until they arrive, and it could be anything from a pop-up dinner in the outdoors to a night on the town.

While the first two Undercover events — in Jackson Hole and Denver — have already taken place, there are 11 more in the works, all going down at the Four Seasons in each of these cities:

August 19: Santa Fe
August 23: Miami
August 28: San Francisco
August 29: Whistler
August 30: Washington DC
Early September (TBD): Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills
September 11: Houston
September 16: Baltimore
September 24: Orlando
September 25: Palm Beach
October 10: Vail

The inspiration for this series came from a series of pop-up dinners at EDGE, the restaurant at Four Seasons Denver. The first dinner’s theme was “water,” and guests were escorted to the rooftop pool terrace, where they were treated to a raw bar, tequila tasting, live music, a performance by a synchronized swimming team, and a seafood-themed dinner. Guests at upcoming Undercover events can expect to be similarly wowed.

If you like surprises and are looking for a fun and upscale evening, you can trust that the Four Seasons will show you a very, very good time. You can contact each hotel directly for more information.

Brothers Andy and Jon Levy open Mastermind: The Educational Computer Store in Toronto in 1984. It’s a 300-square foot shop offering educational software to families excited about their new home computers. A second shop, Mastermind Educational is opened in 1985 with an expanded assortment of the very best toys, games and books. As Mastermind Educational quickly becomes the destination for birthday gifts, complimentary in-store gift-wrapping with our signature wrap, designed in house in Canada, is launched!

Over the next decade, Mastermind Educational grows to a total of 10 locations across the greater Toronto area. Its reputation as a “smart little toy store” is built on two things: the Levy brothers’ insatiable curiosity and unfailing attention to feedback.

About Us

Brothers Andy and Jon Levy open Mastermind: The Educational Computer Store in Toronto in 1984. It’s a 300-square foot shop offering educational software to families excited about their new home computers. A second shop, Mastermind Educational is opened in 1985 with an expanded assortment of the very best toys, games and books. As Mastermind Educational quickly becomes the destination for birthday gifts, complimentary in-store gift-wrapping with our signature wrap, designed in house in Canada, is launched!

Over the next decade, Mastermind Educational grows to a total of 10 locations across the greater Toronto area. Its reputation as a “smart little toy store” is built on two things: the Levy brothers’ insatiable curiosity and unfailing attention to feedback. Then and now, customer suggestions, requests and questions help to refine Mastermind Toys’ unparalleled selection.

In 1997 Mastermind Educational launches their first website - mastermindtoys.com - and welcomes customers from across Canada and the United States.

In 2005 Mastermind Educational reinvents their name – Mastermind Toys – and store locations with a fresh logo and colour scheme. The eleventh store is in the Greater Toronto Area is opened in 2007.
