Just back from the 2011 Fancy Food Show. The show usually takes place in NYC, but they moved it to Washington DC this year. Incredible. Three days, two nights. Many friends and not enough sleep. A big thank you to Lisa of Chambre de Sucre for taking care of the accommodations. We had a lovely suite at the oh-so-chic Donovan House, complete with rooftop pool + bar and all. The shuttle bus ran direct from hotel to the convention center. A steady and suffocating 95F the entire stay. You bet we avoided doing anything outdoors. Hotel, convention center, and restaurants. Enclosed in air conditioning! It was a semi-waste to not see more of DC, but I was there a few months ago. So that made it ok? hehe. My family and I used to travel often from Hawai’i to work trade shows for our crystal company. And I definitely miss doing that.
Nothing like the thrill, excitement and work of a successful show.
