A Tasting with LA’s Only Water Sommelier

When I sat down at a table at Ray's & Stark Bar, the acclaimed restaurant on the plaza at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and saw five empty glasses lined up at each place setting, I knew it was going to be a night of heavy drinking. And it was.  But there was no risk of a hangover or improper behavior. What was being poured was nothing more intoxicating that good ole H20.  Along with about a dozen other members of the press, I had been invited to a water tasting.

Family in Tow

One of the trends we have been hearing about recently is the return of families to the meetings and events mix. It seems that a lot of us travel frequently and spend enough time away from our significant others and kids. When the chance arises, it’s nice to bring them along for the journey. For employers, it is a nice perk to offer employees and can be fun for meeting and event planners to build families into the itinerary.

Rinks to Year-Round Venues

I like it when towns get creative in taking a resource they already have and turn it into a non-traditional event venue. Castle Rock and Crested Butte are two Colorado towns that have found their fairly new outdoor ice rinks also can be valuable large event spaces for fair-weather months.
