I am always looking for new ways to approach things in life because doing something the same way each time does not always work or it can be boring. I like to get different perspectives. I seek unique ideas. I want the New, New Thing – per Michael Lewis. For instance, I don’t always follow the routine or the standard. I mix it up – sometimes by design, sometimes by convenience and, of course, sometimes because the first chance was missed.
For instance, my fiancée and I took a different approach to the nationally celebrated Valentine’s Day. Rather than adhere to the rules that Hallmark has bestowed upon the country that there’s only one true day for love and it should cost you an arm and leg just to celebrate it, we decided to wait a week and splurge at our leisure. We ended up spending an amazing evening at a very nice restaurant here in DC. In my mind, it is now one of the restaurants that I associate as a “must-go-back” place.
As I say these words “must go,” it makes me think: If this restaurant was that amazing, what are some other “must-go-back” venues? What are the places I need to go back to more than just once in a lifetime? And the answer hits me!
In less than a week, I know that I will be at another “must-go-back” place: Next Monday, March 10, I’ll be at BbWorld Commerce ’08, and I will be dining at A Different Pointe of View restaurant, sitting atop the North Mountain in Phoenix with some of the most stunning views available in the country.
I know very few places that give you this type of atmosphere – that combined with the food and service that all high-end restaurants are renowned for. Plus, it’ll be dining with 300 friends and colleagues. What’s even better is, this dinner is on us. You don’t open your wallets for this meal. Now, that alone would make this place a “must-go-back” place.
I am looking for people to join me at my table on the patio for what will be fantastic evening event. Most events have great activities for their attendees to attend, yet very few have places that you must go back to . . . BbWorld Commerce does.
See you next weekend at the conference.
