(Technically Day –1; the day before the conference began)
1/2 Food 1/2 Clothes
After checking in to the hotel and unpacking we ate snacks in the lobby and met a few familiar faces and began a conversation and concluded in a jump in the pool.
It was a great evening so I took a stroll outside the convention center.
We spent the next morning helping vendors get their booths setup. There was quite a crowd of fellows and many hands make light work! However, it was still thirsty work so thank you again to Kate Whittington for picking up sodas !
Yeah, it looks like we’re working hard.
What with all of the sessions and shopping and meals it’s hard to socialize too! Why not kill two birds with one stone?
I’m sure there’s a more complimentary way of phrasing that.
After the last lecture…that word sounds much too dull…we joined friends in the hotel lobby for some cards.
…and an intense game of Dutch Blitz-a CHEF Conference tradition.
“Are you looking at my cards?”
Now back to the casual Skip-Bo…
Is that a “5” I seen in her hand?
Look! In the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s…
“Suermann!” (No, that’s not a typo)
