MATT LIMBAUGH  Co-owner and Executive Chef Matt Limbaugh’s culinary approach is one of constant inspiration, which perfectly complements the adaptable nature of UpRooted Events. A veteran of some of Vail’s most recognizable eateries, his passion is really working with private clients to conceive inventive menus. Frequently found with a margarita after hours, this self-proclaimed python sticks to the simpler things in life, as in most likely by a campfire somewhere in the woods when not plating dishes.

JOE NEWTON  Joe moved to the area from a “little village in Suffolk [England] no one’s ever heard of” in 2011, and has quickly left his mark on the valley with his mixology skills, and his infamous double-handed cocktail shake. He has bounced around between Portland, Oregon, Denver and London, taking inspiration from the best bars in the world, and recreating their best elements in Vail. Joe serves as a consultant for our beverage catering with a personal touch, getting to know the likes and wishes of each client.
