Killexams : Caterer brings hospitality home with Harvest Table café

DAYTON, Va. (AP) — Of many things, Belinda Koteita is a mom, a daughter and a caterer.

Those three things come into play in the new restaurant and coffee bar Koteita opened with her family in October.

“I’ve been around food and setting the table for people with food my whole life,” Koteita said. “(It feels) very surreal.”

Harvest Table recently opened on John Wayland Highway in Dayton, near Grammie’s Ice Cream and Valley Water Gardens.

Celebrating a soft opening, the new café, called Harvest Table, had a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its grand opening prior to the annual Dayton Days Autumn Celebration, a vendor market and festival that draws thousands to Dayton’s historic district.

During the ceremony, Koteita, her husband Blake, mom Irene Koogler, kids and friends -- along with representatives from Dayton -- crowded on the porch of the new restaurant, beneath a stylish swag of gold, black and white balloons as kids helped cut the red ribbon with the scissors for a crowd of customers and supporters.

With a full kitchen, catering, special rotating menu, coffee bar and indoor and outdoor seating, Belinda Koteita curated everything customers need for a grateful gathering any time of year.

Harvest Table has a regular menu including the Brisket Biscuit with ‘Bama Sauce – a sliced soft biscuit with sweet and savory brisket slices and a side of ’Bama white barbecue sauce.

“This will be another place that people can gather and share a meal together,” Dayton Mayor Cary Jackson said at the event. “It’s one of the things I love is watching family and friends enjoy a meal together.”

The café menu also includes nachos -- a fresh and wholesome take -- made with fresh lime and cilantro, warm queso blanco, black beans and warm ground beef and diced tomatoes on crunchy tortilla chips, along with amped-up classics like the Maple Bacon Cinnamon Roll, harvest granola parfait and mini charcuterie.

Harvest Table has a full coffee menu, including hot and iced coffee, espresso drinks and seasonal flavors, including a pumpkin spice chai latte.

Koteita said she was inspired by the feeling of gathering around a table to create her restaurant. She grew up in the area and worked at the Dayton Inn, in addition to catering with her mom and making meals for sale with friend Ashley Cook.

“Hospitality is her niche. She’s amazing at serving, taking care of people,” Cook said. “So to combine food and hospitality is her wheelhouse.”

The restaurant has a clean, modern vibe, with natural wood, black and white accents and green plants. It features a comfy couch in one corner, so diners and coffee drinkers can relax and recline.

“The location is so key,” Koteita said. “We walked in and felt like home. We want people to walk in and feel like home.”

“We want to host people and we want to do events,” said Blake Koteita, who owns the restaurant with Belinda. “It’s so much more than coffee or a café.”

Upcoming special events at Harvest Table include a Baking Spirits Bright Cookie Decorating Party, a ticketed event to decorate a half dozen holiday-themed cookies to take home, according to Harvest Table’s Facebook page.

In addition to the regular menu, Harvest Table features a rotating special meal, like bourbon chicken with scalloped potatoes and salad. The plates are available Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and change each time. Belinda Koteita said to check out Harvest Table’s Facebook page to see what’s being served.

A pastry case rotates with treats. Right now, find the succulent, moist and warm-spiced pumpkin bar with silky frosting and cinnamon dusting, a fluffy peanut butter bar, Swiss rolls, ciabatta sandwiches, bottled drinks and more.

“I’ve already gotten to come enjoy a couple of cups of coffee, cinnamon rolls and everything else,” Jackson said during the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Killexams : A New Organization Forms Within the Hospitality Industry

ECEP Brings a Powerful Group Together to Affect Change

WASHINGTON, Dec. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The US food service industry represents a whopping $909 billion (Global Data), with a $10 billion catering industry channel, both set for steady growth in 2023 and beyond. Even with these numbers, food service and catering purveyors found themselves with little representation in Washington D.C. during the tumultuous pandemic years.

To gain strength during that time and ensure safety going forward, a group of 16 diversified caterers, event production and hospitality companies banded together to create Elite Catering + Event Professionals (ECEP). The collaborative global network itself represents a powerful voice in the market with more than $615 million in annual revenue among them.

"If money talks, we have the ability and the desire to say and do something significant to effect positive change," says Susan Lacz, Inaugural President of ECEP and CEO and Principal of Ridgewells Catering. Based in the Washington D.C. metro area, Ridgewells is one of the nation's largest privately held catering companies.

"Our industry is in dire need for advocacy, leadership, and collaboration," Lacz continues. And she is distinctly poised with her fellow ECEP members to change that.

Lacz is joined by other founding members including ECEP Vice President Michael Stavros, Partner at M Culinary Concepts in Phoenix, Arizona. "ECEP is bringing together diversified, resilient businesses and their innovative, resourceful leaders in the catering and live events industries. With shared purpose and a unified voice, ECEP members are strengthening our respective businesses while advocating for our entire industry."


The first action ECEP took was to align itself with an association with a powerful voice in Washington -- the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA). The association worked with Congress to get the catering/food service industry declared as "essential services" and is currently advocating with the Internal Revenue Service for companies who have yet to receive their Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC).


Elite Catering + Event Professionals (ECEP) was founded in 2021 by industry experts and leaders from the world's top catering and hospitality organizations, united by a common goal of propelling the global catering and events industry forward through innovation and bold new ideas.

From its inception, it was important that there by an education arm of ECEP. The organization held its first Symposium in March 2022 in Nashville and will hold another in 2023. At the Symposium, ECEP founders and its members redefine the hospitality industry and set new standards of excellence for companies and professionals across the world.

In 2023, the ECEP Symposium will be held in Palms Springs, California, February 27March 2.

Other founding members include John Crisafulli, President of Behind the Scenes Catering and Events, San Diego, California; Adam Noyes, President, and Ben Witte COO, of Proof of the Pudding, Atlanta, Georgia; and Brandon Maxwell, CEO & Cofounder of M Culinary Concepts, Phoenix, Arizona.

Find a list of all the members at https://www.ecep.org/

Killexams : Juicy Hotel Dividends With Apple Hospitality
Ankunft und Ausruhen der Frau in einem Hotel

FG Trade/E+ via Getty Images


The Apple Hospitality REIT (NYSE:APLE) is a company I frequently covered before and during the pandemic. After all, that was the most interesting time to follow what had become a highly-volatile hotel industry. In this article, I'm going to cover the company again. Apple Hospitality is in a terrific spot again. The pandemic is over. Multiple financial indicators are above pre-pandemic levels. The dividend has rebounded, and the outlook is surprisingly good, especially in light of supply growth. Moreover, the company maintains a fantastic balance sheet, allowing it to withstand ongoing headwinds from high rates and Fed policy uncertainty. Hence, APLE's stock is up this year, outperforming the market and most of its peers by a wide margin. I continue to believe that APLE will be a good source of long-term REIT income.

Now, let's dive into the details!

Why Hotel REITs Make Sense

Apple Hospitality is a huge player in the hotel industry. How huge? Well, here are some numbers:


Apple Hospitality

The latest numbers (November investor presentation) show that the company behind the APLE ticker owns 220 hotels. These hotels cover close to 29,000 rooms. The company is 99% room-focused. This means that, unlike some other players, it is less dependent on business events and related.


Apple Hospitality

The company covers 15 brands. Most of them are Hilton, Marriott, and Hyatt. Its hotels are managed under separate management agreements with management companies. The largest is LBAM-Investor Group, managing 34 of APLE's assets.

Its hotels cover 37 states and 87 markets. The average TripAdvisor rating is 4.3, which is satisfying - and no surprise as these branded hotels are often well-managed.

Since the pandemic, APLE has been a net buyer of hotels (in $, not units). It bought 14 hotels worth $558 million while selling 25 hotels for $253 million. Acquisitions are performing better than expected as a third of them are producing trailing twelve-month yields of more than 10%.

With that said, why would you want to invest in hotels? There are some benefits to commercial REITs. For starters, APLE gets most of its revenue from luxury hotels. The higher and upper financial classes tend to keep spending during recessions, despite the undeniable fact that travel spending is cyclical luxury spending.

Moreover, the hotel industry is competitive yet hard to master. Unlike self-storage and residential real estate, it's hard to get access to hotels without being very wealthy - to begin with.

According to The Motley Fool:

In addition, unlike real estate purchases, REIT investors have no active involvement in the property. They only need to choose their hotel REIT carefully, accept the risks that may come with it, and sit back and watch their investment grow. They never have to evict anyone or clean up after a messy tenant; professional management teams behind the REITs do all the heavy lifting.

The APLE Dividend Is Back

The biggest reason why someone would buy into a competitive and rather slow-growing hotel industry is income. Heck, that's the number one reason why people are buying REITs in the first place.

Looking at the Seeking Alpha dividend scorecard, the company scores high on safety and growth, somewhat high on yield, and abysmal on consistency.


Seeking Alpha

That's no surprise, as the company took measures in March 2020 to combat what was known as SARS-CoV-2 back then.

The company suspended its dividend, postponed all non-essential capital improvement projects, and used all of its liquidity to protect the business.

Before the pandemic, the company paid a $0.10 per MONTH dividend. Yes, APLE is a monthly-paying stock. The dividend was reinstated exactly one year later when management announced a penny per share in monthly dividends.

Now, the dividend is back at $0.08 per month, which translates to a 5.6% yield. In other words, the YCharts yield above has not been updated yet.

Before the pandemic, the stock usually yielded close to 8% as the stock price and dividend payout were steady. APLE was an income stock, not a growth REIT.

The company's dividend recovery is impressive. However, what's even more important is that it seems sustainable as fundamentals have come roaring back. This is what APLE's CEO Justin Knight commented:

The increases in dividend are a direct result of continued strength in the operating performance of our hotels and an expectation the current trends would continue into the future. I think to your second question, our payout ratios are lower than they were prior to the pandemic. And we have, in addition to being in a position to increase dividends, been also able to preserve capital to reinvest in our business and to fund share repurchases and partially fund acquisitions and our capital improvement.

Moreover, the company repurchased shares.

Recent market volatility has also provided us with the opportunity to purchase our own shares at a meaningful discount to their intrinsic value. Through October, we had purchased just under 200,000 shares at a weighted average market purchase price of approximately $14.21 per share for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $2.7 million. Shares were purchased under a written trading plan as part of our share repurchase program.

As of October 31, 2022, the company had $342 million remaining under its program.

This Recovery Is Impressive

People researching commercial aerospace know that the United States was the first major country to recover from the pandemic. To this day, domestic travel in the United States is what drives aerospace demand.

Related, hotels in the US are doing quite well. While occupancy rates for APLE hotels are not yet fully back to normal as the chart below shows, financial numbers have recovered.


Apple Hospitality

Even better than recovered. The company's average daily rates now exceed pre-pandemic levels. Revenue per available room has improved for six straight months versus pre-pandemic levels, with growth rates reaching double-digit levels.


Apple Hospitality

Note that this recovery is happening despite imploding consumer sentiment, (related) high inflation, and increasing economic uncertainty.

If these headwinds were nonexistent, people would probably be camping outside of hotels to wait for an available spot.

It also helps that industry forecasts expect this recovery to last.


Apple Hospitality

Another tailwind is coming from supply growth. Apple Hospitality expects that nearly 50% of its hotels do not have any exposure to new projects under construction within a five-mile radius. That's the lowest number in years as high construction costs and supply issues make building new hotels less attractive.

Healthy Balance Sheet

In light of high rates, it is important that APLE has a healthy balance sheet. As of September 30, 2022, the company had $1.3 billion in debt. $990 million of this came from term loans and senior notes. The company has no maturities larger than $240 million until 2025. $800 million worth of debt matures after 2026.

Moreover, 87% of its debt is fixed-rate debt. The weighted-average interest rate on its debt was 3.7% as of September 30.

With just 3.3x net debt to EBITDA, extended and staggered maturities, a relatively young portfolio and over $700 million in total liquidity, we are able to be both patient and flexible as we work to capitalize on dislocations in the market. We have been and will continue to be highly selective and intentional in the build-out of our portfolio pursuing assets that are additive to those that we currently own where we can achieve attractive pricing.

Outperformance & Valuation

Hence, it is no surprise that APLE shares are back on track. Including dividends (the total return performance), APLE shares have almost closed the gap with the iShares US Real Estate ETF (IYR).

Data by YCharts

What's important is that great fundamentals translate to strong outperformance. Over the past 12 months, APLE has returned 21%. Its REIT peers are down 13% as high rates are just not great for yield investments like REITs.

Data by YCharts

While I do not expect APLE to turn into a capital gains monster, I think the mix of a high (expected) dividend, buybacks, and low (expected) capital gains is a great recipe for high shareholder satisfaction.

APLE shares are currently trading at 9.5x funds from operations. The historic range, excluding the pandemic (which messes up my y-axis), indicates that APLE shares are still highly attractively priced.

Data by YCharts

I agree with that. I believe that APLE should not be trading below $21 per share. That's what I consider the fair value to be, for the time being.


APLE is back on track. The company has turned into a source of high and reliable REIT income again. Unless a new pandemic hits us anytime soon, I expect APLE's dividend to soar to at least $0.10 per share per month again. This time, there's more upside as the company is recovering beyond pre-pandemic levels.

Pricing is strong, occupancy rates are improving, and the outlook is supportive of further growth - despite economic challenges.

Moreover, in light of a hawkish Fed, APLE has a stellar balance sheet. The leverage ratio is low, almost all debt has fixed rates, and average yields are low.

While I do not expect APLE shares to take off anytime soon (or ever become a capital gains monster), I think the company is a great place to get high REIT income.

Depending on my personal income situation and diversification plans, I may buy myself some hotel exposure with APLE in 2023!

Killexams : Cambs hotel manager says ‘hospitality is heading for a car crash’ amid cost of living strain

A manager at a Cambridge hotel has expressed grave concerns about the future of the hospitality industry claiming it is "heading for a car crash". This comes following the Government's autumn budget last week (November 17) with Roberto Pintus from The Varsity Hotel & Spa in Cambridge wanting to see a "reduction in VAT for hospitality to maintain consumer demand".

The general manager of more than 12 years at The Varsity Hotel & Spa in Cambridge, Roberto Pintus shared that the pandemic, cost of living and Brexit have all played a significant role in the hospitality industry. He added that the proposed Cambridge congestion charge could also damage it further in the city.

The cost of living crisis has played a significant role in the hospitality industry more recently with people becoming more cautious of where and how they spend their money. Roberto said: “I think everything started to dramatically go down, starting in October”.

He said The Varsity Hotel has "definitely noticed a drop" in covers in the restaurant on a Saturday evening. Also adding that the biggest difference they've noticed is the average spending from the customer, Roberto said this has dropped “quite a lot” around 5 to 6 per cent.

He said: “People are still going out, but they're very aware of what they can actually afford to spend. So rather than having maybe a couple of drinks, they rather prefer to have just one cocktail or instead of a dessert, they prefer to have a starter and main course. People have less money in their pocket and they’re making some hard choices in what they want to do and hospitality is one of the first choices to drop with the money”.

Roberto said people are more cautious with how they spend their money

He adds: “Everything is going up with energy costs and everything. Somewhere it’s going to reflect the prices and everybody needs to pay more and more. It’s going to be difficult for lots of people going out and getting used to having one drink and going back home”.

Another issue hospitality is facing is in regard to their suppliers who they rely on to get their food and other key items needed to run a hotel or restaurant. Roberto shares that prices have increased from their suppliers due to energy and petrol costs, with some prices increasing to 15 per cent more.

In order to keep up with the higher prices hotels may need to look at increasing their room rates and amenities in order to keep up with the inflation. The hotel manager said: “There is only so far you can go to cover the cost before there is no demand and before you become too expensive.

“All of these are reducing profits, reducing the possibility to not only have to make the money but because you have to do further investment in the future”. One example Roberto shares is the refurbishment of rooms and amenities within the hotel as well as keeping in line with the new technology. This, in turn, creates more business and more opportunities for employment but of course, all costs money too.

In terms of Brexit, Roberto said: “There is a huge gap in hospitality of skilful people. I don't think at the moment, the UK alone can provide the correct resources.

“So the problem is that we constantly try to find people that can actually do the job professionally, before Brexit there was a huge number of Europeans and a number of people you could rely on. The problem is that there are lots of people following the pandemic, who returned back home”.

Roberto is Italian himself beginning his hospitality career in Italy before moving to England. He suggested government should make it easier for people who have the skills needed to come and work in the UK.

Talking about the proposed congestion charge in Cambridge, Roberto said that although this is “a good idea”, for the hospitality industry “it’s going to be a massive problem”. The Varsity Hotel offers a valet service and since the pandemic, it has seen an increase in use with more people taking the decision to travel by car instead of using public transport due to Covid.

Roberto said: “We saw an increase of people travelling and coming to us in their car but as soon you're going to actually implement congestion charges, I think people will have a little bit of hesitant to actually come because it's adding more costs and the implication of leaving the car on the other side of Cambridge and using public transport to get into the city centre. I don’t think it’s going to be a good experience and I think it’s going to be difficult”.

Outside The Varsity Hotel & Spa in Cambridge

In terms of moving forward for hospitality, Roberto said that one aspect that was previously very beneficial was the VAT reduction from 20 per cent to five per cent in the industry during the pandemic. He added that if this was reintroduced in some way, even a 10 per cent VAT reduction, it could really help hospitality during one of the toughest times it's faced.

As well as this he said that a "priority" should be made with immigration “to try and get more people, skillful people, into hospitality". He also adds that introducing another scheme similar to ‘Eat out to help out’ that was in place during the pandemic could really help the industry too.

With the hospitality industry taking such a huge hit some businesses could face the decision of having to close, unable to maintain the business, income and service. Although The Varsity Hotel is not facing this problem, Roberto said what is happening to the hospitality industry is “very, very daunting and a problem at the moment”.

He said: “We know the NHS is suffering, we know that schools are a priority for the children but many of these things can only work as well if there is a strong economy and hospitality is part of that. If people don't go out and spend the money I don't think anything's going to be moving and it won’t generate anything, everything’s going to drop.

Killexams : Hospitality jobs fair to be held at Hamilton Princess Hotel

A jobs fair for the 2023 hotel and hospitality season is set for December 14 at the Hamilton Princess Hotel.

It marks the second annual employment drive in the sector, which was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Representatives from the island’s restaurants will also take part.

Tim Morrison, the president of the Bermuda Hotel Association, said workers were in demand for jobs ranging from the culinary arts to front office, operational management, housekeeping, sales and marketing, finance, engineering, food and beverage, recreational services and spa.

Registration is not essential, but those interested can sign up online via the Bermuda Job Board.

Jason Hayward, the economy and labour minister, said the move was in keeping with the island’s National Jobs Strategy and Youth Employment Strategy.

The job fair is a partnership with the Department of Workforce Development, the Bermuda Tourism Authority and the BHA.

Jakai Franks, the BTA’s vice-president of operations, said tourism represented “not only a vital pillar for our economy, but it is a career path that can lead to great reward”.

“I am a personal testament to this. I could not be more elated for the Bermuda Tourism Authority to once again partner with Work Force Development to showcase our hospitality industry while simultaneously equipping our local community with the tools they need for their journey towards a viable career.”

The fair will be held at the hotel’s Princess Rooms.

Killexams : Southern Hospitality: Leva Says Husband Lamar "Throws the Hammer Down" at Republic

On Bravo's new series Southern HospitalityLeva Bonaparte is the boss.

The Southern Charm-er is highlighting her Charleston nightclub, Republic Garden & Lounge, on the show, and on the November 28 premiere, viewers met the bartenders, hosts, servers, and VIP concierges who work there. 

But while Leva may be the one who has to keep the staff in line, she makes any and all major decisions with help from her husband/business partner, Lamar Bonaparte. 

The Republic matriarch spoke with The Daily Dish about what it's really like to work so closely with her husband, and she shared how the two balance each other out when it comes to their approaches with their employees. 

The Canadian met Charleston native Lamar on her 29th birthday, and as she put it on an episode of Southern Charm Season 7, she was drawn to "his intelligence and creativity," qualities she found to be "a sustainable sexy."

They became friends first, then business partners, and then, in 2013, spouses. In addition to Republic, the two also operate Bourbon N' Bubbles, Mesu, and 1st Place, which are all located on King Street. They're also parents to their son, Lamar Jr., aka Little. 

Leva Bonaparte's Bar, Bourbon N' Bubbles, Is Insanely Chic

During her chat with The Daily Dish, the Charleston-based restaurateur said that viewers will see a Lamar "pop up sometimes here and there" on Southern Hospitality, but they shouldn't expect him to take center stage too often. 

"He's not a big TV guy," Leva explained. "I have to drag him into family photos. He doesn't even like pictures." 

Lamar doesn't have as big of a role on the show as his wife does, but he is very present in running their businesses. Leva said that she and her husband balance each other well when it comes to their leadership styles. 

"He's sort of like a strong silent type in all things. Even when it boils down to the business, he'll kind of walk in, see what he needs to and go. I'm more of the 'people person,' and I do try to go the extra mile," she added. "We don't always agree on how to run business... which I think makes us great business partners."

Leva said that her spouse looks at many business decisions as black and white, but she urges him to see things differently at times. "I try to let him live in some gray, which he's not comfortable with," she shared. However, if need be, she noted that the usually-strong-and-silent-type Lamar "kind of throws the hammer down."

"If he walks in, they know, 'Dad is mad,' and it's really gonna be a problem," she joked. "[Our employees] don't even want to see him here."

For Leva, living in the gray sometimes means giving staff members another shot. As viewers saw during the premiere, Lamar and Leva disagreed about what to do about Mikel Simmons' future at Republic.

"He sometimes thinks I deliver people maybe a few more chances than they need, but sometimes he's pleasantly surprised that he can be wrong," Leva said.

You can see Leva and Lamar (and 10 of their employees!) on Southern Hospitality.

Killexams : Fair Pay Agreements: Hospitality workers to make first application to start negotiations

Hospitality workers to apply to initiate a Fair Pay Agreement. Photo / Getty Images

Hospitality workers are expected to be the first group to apply to start negotiating a Fair Pay Agreement (FPA) with their employers.

Unite Union plans to submit paperwork with the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) today to get approval to start bargaining on behalf of hospitality workers.

The FPA Act, which also takes effect today, outlines a process for employers and employees to follow to negotiate baseline pay and working conditions.

Negotiations can only begin if the chief executive of MBIE is satisfied a minimum number (1000) or portion (10 per cent) of workers in an industry or occupation want to go to the bargaining table, or if a “public interest” test is met.

All employers and employees will fall under the agreement, including those who don’t want to be involved and those who aren’t union members.

Unite Union national secretary John Crocker said he had signatures from more than 1500 hospitality workers supportive of initiating an FPA.

Hospitality workers include those who work at restaurants, cafes, bars, accommodation providers, cinemas and theatres.

Crocker estimated around 80,000 to 100,000 people could be included in the proposed FPA.

First Union is also preparing to apply to MBIE to initiate negotiations on behalf of supermarket workers.

Its general secretary Dennis Maga said the union has the necessary number of signatures and plans to submit an application in coming weeks.

In the new year, First Union hopes to make another application on behalf of bus drivers.

The creation of FPAs is a key Labour Party policy.

The legislation, passed a month ago, was born out of recommendations made by a working group on FPAs, established in 2018 and chaired by a former National Party prime minister Jim Bolger.

The aim is to bring employers and employees together to Improve baseline working conditions for a specified industry or occupation.

Business lobby groups and opposition political parties oppose FPAs, largely because of their compulsory nature.

Cleaners, security guards, and those who work in early childhood education are also expected to initiate FPAs.

Killexams : Meet the 'Southern Hospitality' Cast and Where to Find Them on Social

Southern Hospitality is the new spinoff from Southern Charm that follows Leva Bonaparte as she tries to manage her larger-than-life staff.

The reality television series is set at one of the star's venues in Charleston, South Carolina, which is also where the original show, which aired its eighth season earlier this year, is filmed.

Bravo star Leva, 43, who found fame on Southern Charm, and her husband Lamar, 46, own four restaurants together on Charleston's famous King Street, but nightclub Republic is providing the backdrop for the new series.

The Republic team are lively group of friends who spend all their time together, in and out of work, and are forced to compete for prime positions (and tips) at the club, as well as navigating through love, conflict, makeups and breakups together.

As the matriarch of Republic, Leva strives to be the voice of reason for her unpredictable staff as they balance their personal lives with work issues.

That responsibility may be easier said than done, however, as she tries to guide her crew of young, passionate workers through Charleston's biggest summer in recent memory.

Ahead of the launch of the new series, Newsweek has everything you need to know about the cast of Southern Hospitality, including what they get up to this season and where you can find them on social media.
