The Morton Mixer | Summer Edition


We’ve been living it up at The Morton, in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, since January and have wanted to throw a party in the B E A U T I F U L courtyard!

FINALLY…last month, we were able to host our first event at this prime location with Rockford Property Management. Learn more about how we enjoyed summer with friends at The Morton….

Location | The Morton | 625 Bridge Street NW – Grand Rapids West Side

Event | GRNOW + Rockford Property Management Presents – The Morton Mixer | Summer Edition

The Details

The Morton Mixer was all about showing off The Morton’s “elegant living at the center of it all”! Our guests were invited to a party in the courtyard—music, food, drinks, and fun. Amenities that our guests enjoyed in the courtyard space included a built in grill, ample outdoor counter space with modern furniture, and even bistro lights– to add to the summer feel. 

Local Love

While our guests included residents of The Morton, we were also able to celebrate summer with local influencers of Grand Rapids!

Motu Viget Spirits

We were excited to have Motu Viget Spirits as a featured sponsor at the event. New{er} to the Grand Rapids drink scene with premium sparkling wine, vodka, and rosé, Motu has create a name for itself in the area–with events and activations. This Grand Rapids brand is black-owned and operated…and available at Bridge Street Market and many, many more local venues (just ask for it). 


One of our many sponsors included Condado Taco (Bride Street)—located on the Westside with a gorgeous restaurant and open air seating! Guests dined on their unique tacos with delicious toppings–including their famous guacamole and vegan chorizo.

“Condado is a place to come as you are, soak up the local vibe and feel connected with the community. It’s a one-of-a kind experience that reminds us who we are. What we love. And where we come from.

Our build-your-own-taco concept has been operating since 2014, with our first location in Columbus, OH. We’ve added more since then and are expanding throughout the US.” via Condado Tavos

What we love more than the tacos and tequila is that Condado is passionate about supporting the art communities, especially local art!

 “Each one of our restaurants is painted floor to ceiling by local artists + our core Condado Art Team. These murals reference landmarks, and other recognizable city features, and highlights our beloved Condado characters devouring as many tacos and margs as they can get their hands on!”

Ace Marasigan AKA DJ ACE 

Summer vibes are even better with summer beats and DJ ACE provided the perfect soundscape! We loved seeing our guests truly take in the summer season while enjoying the ambiance. Ace’s next event, the Global Water Festival, will be September 25th! Make sure to learn more about this #GrandNew event on the waters of downtown Grand Rapids.

Photo Gurus 

Photos or it didn’t happen, ammiright?! Luckily, The Photo Gurus provided The Morton Mixer with a photo booth to immortalize our sippin’ summer event. 

But check it out…The Photo Gurus are also the Ice Gurus and they were even featured on tv for their AMAZING ice sculptures. If you’re in Grand Rapids you can find their works of chilly art during the World of Winter. Last year they created a working piano…OF ICE!
