BizBash Chicago

I was lucky to be able to attend the 1st annual BizBash Conference in Chicago last week. I have some amazing learnings to share this coming week including one that really will make you expand your "going green" event knowledge. Greg Christian, who is a well-known Chicago caterer (for Harpo Studios and others), presented a dynamic, educational presentation about how event planners can easily make events "green" by including specifics in the RFP process (brilliant!) and doing a little extra research. It was fantastic! More to come...

Here is a link to the BizBash Editorial on the event:


Cloud 9...

It's not a secret that I adore cupcakes... I find them to be delightful, whimsical and, well, delicious! I am so thankful that my new house is right near an Indianapolis gem - The Flying Cupcake. Talk about being on Cloud 9! I picked up 2 for dessert tonight (no, not both for me!) and can't wait to try their famous Red Velvet Elvis.

In Charlotte, I also lived near a cupcake paradise... called Polka Dot Bake Shop it was also delish! Perhaps my subconscious is steering me towards living near these specialty bakeries!

Here are the aforementioned bakeries links - but if you're not in Indy or Charlotte, make sure to find a cupcake bakery near you!

Lastly, I managed to find even bigger fans of the cupcake: the ladies of the blog "The Cupcake Takes the Cake": such a fun read and a sure way to find the best cupcakes in your city!
